Hall-Effect Torque Sensor Boosts EPS Drivability

TT Electronics’ SX-4462 Hall effect magnetic non-contact torque sensor embarks as a flexible and cost-effective sensor offering high accuracy and diagnostic capabilities for electronic power steering (EPS) applications including off-road vehicles (ORVs), three-wheelers, light commercial trucks, and tractors.


The SX-4462 fourth-generation Magnetorque (MT4) offers customization options including full-scale range and sensitivity, wire length, product marking, and connector type. A 4.5V to 5.5V supply voltage range simplifies connection to a convenient power source, and a maximum current of 20 mA ensures low power consumption. Redundant outputs that allow full diagnostics and output voltage clamps that enable open/short detection ensure reliable performance under tough conditions.


Sensors 2019 Hits Silicon Valley June 25-27!

Join 7,000+ engineers this June in San Jose at the sensor industry’s biggest event! With 65+ Technical Sessions, 100+ Leading Speakers, 10 new and updated tracks, and 300+ Interactive Exhibits, there’s more opportunity than ever to connect with this booming industry and the technologies driving it.
