CIPOS® technology is an easy-to-use and precise method of position measurement. The measuring range of rotary sensors (angle), linear sensors (lane) and segment sensors can be flexibly selected. Angles can be measured using end-of-shaft or through-hole sensors. Extremely small dimensions can, in particular, be measured with linear sensors in the centimeter range. CIPOS® is easy to install and insensitive to mechanical fault tolerances. In addition, these sensors are largely unaffected by temperature fluctuations.
Because the ASIC is designed for high temperature ranges (175°C), the sensor is ideal for applications in the engine compartment.
No magnet is required, the CIPOS® sensor guarantees immunity from nearby magnetic fields and power lines.
The technology is therefore ideal for use in electric vehicles.
CIPOS® offers solutions for ASIL-A to ASIL-D according to ISO standard 26262 and all common interfaces for sensors used in automotive manufacturing (analog, PWM, SENT, PSI5 and SPI).
CIPOS® technology is used in the following areas:
- Accelerator pedal sensors
- Throttle position sensors
- Transmission range sensors
- Camshaft/crankshaft sensors
- Steering sensors
- Vehicle level sensors
- Engine compartment actuators
- Motor position sensors
