We are proud to announce that SENIS FAMAS (Fast Magnetic Angle Sensor) is winner of this year’s AMA Innovation Award.
FAMAS is the first cost effective, fast and accurate magnetic angle sensor based on two vertical Hall elements and on direct angle to digital format conversion. The patented algorithm, which is implemented in this sensor, includes an innovative servo loop control system. It allows an angle sensing at practically unlimited rotary speeds, with ultimately short and angle independent latency. FAMAS provides the direct angle information by significantly reducing sensor cost. The implemented measurement technique provides angle measurement of magnets in end-of- and out-of-shaft topology.
