Magnetic Speed Sensor
designed to measure speed in safety and powertrain applications
Our Hall- and GMR-based magnetic speed sensors are designed to measure speed in safety and powertrain applications such as speedometers, ABS, camshafts/crankshafts and automatic transmissions. They are also used in similar applications in the industrial sector. The sensors use a ferromagnetic gear tooth or encoder structure to measure linear or rotational speed and position. Hall sensor measuring rotational speed with a gear tooth and a magnetic encoder wheel.
The majority of sensors also feature additional benefits such as integrated capacitors (C- types) for high EMC robustness and the highest levels of ESD protection.
Modern powertrain systems rely on magnetic speed sensors, along with automotive pressure sensors, to achieve the required CO2 targets and smart powertrain solutions. Infineon offers a broad variety of magnetic speed sensors for camshaft, crankshaft and transmission applications.
