MA800 magnetic sensor


Angular Sensor for Turning Knob Applications, 8bit

The MagAlpha MA800 is a robust contactless angle encoder. The IC detects the absolute angular position of a permanent magnet, typically a diametrically magnetized cylinder attached to the rotor. The data acquisition and processing is extremely fast, allowing accurate angle measurement at speeds from 0 to 100’000 RPM.

The MA800 supports a wide range of magnetic field strengths and spatial configurations, which help to relax mechanical tolerances and simplify system design. Both end-of-shaft magnet and off axis magnet positioning (“side-shaft” mounting) topologies are supported. The ideal application of the MA800 is as a sensor for HMI like turning knobs with SPI digital out interface.
