Steering torque and angle sensor

The combined steering torque and angle sensor from HELLA is integrated in the electromechanical power steering and offers the customer two types of feedback:
  • Steering torque: The sensor records the torsion bar angle required for the steering movement.
  • Steering angle: The sensor measures the angle and speed of change in the position of the steering wheel

Both sensor functions are integrated in one sensor and benefit from HELLA’s proprietary CIPOS® technology.



  • Modular sensor design for all types of electromechanical power steering (EPS)
  • System integration capability with HELLA EPS
  • Diversification of technologies (inductive and Hall)
  • Absolute angle information for output and input shaft
  • Ratiometric measuring principle to improve accuracy over total measurement range
  • Freely programmable torque range with up to +/- 8°
  • Intelligent software concept for increased safety
  • No need for additional steering angle sensor in the steering column
