The components in speed sensing applications continue to diminish in size to meet spatial constraints and weight reduction requirements. As the geometries of gears become smaller, this can compromise the capabilities of a gear speed sensor. The ATS645 Hall-element-to-Hall-element spacing of only 1.5 mm makes this device uniquely capable of accommodating very fine-pitch gears. In addition, the ATS 645 signal peak-detecting algorithm supports consistent switching at relatively large air gaps, where the peak-to-peak amplitude is small. These features make the ATS645 the ideal solution to detect the speed of fine-pitch targets such as those found in ABS (antilock braking) systems.
The ATS645 combines a Hall-effect sensing integrated circuit and magnet to provide a manufacturer-friendly solution for true zero-speed digital gear-tooth sensing in two-wire applications. The device consists of a single-shot molded plastic package that includes a samarium cobalt magnet, a pole piece, and a Hall-effect integrated circuit that has been optimized to the magnetic circuit. This small package can be easily assembled and used in conjunction with a wide variety of gear shapes and sizes.
The integrated circuit ATS645 incorporates a dual-element Hall effect sensor as well as signal processing that switches the output state in response to changes in the magnetic gradients created by ferrous gear teeth. The circuitry contains a sophisticated digital circuit to eliminate magnet and system offsets and to achieve true zero speed operation (U.S. Patent 5,917,320). A-D and D-A converters are used to adjust the device gain at power-on and to allow switching independent of the breadth of the air gap.
The regulated current output is configured for two wire applications, requiring one less wire for operation than do switches with the more traditional open-collector output.The ATS645 package is available in a lead (Pb) free version, with 100% matte tin leadframe plating.
