Designed to sense very small differential angles, the new TT electronics SX-4428 Magnetorque II non-contact steering torque sensor is based on Hall Effect technology.

The free floating torque rotor within the device offers infinite rotational life claims the company.

The new sensor enables the end user to program output levels and reduce the use of tight tolerances in the steering shaft, thereby reducing shaft machining costs. Operational from -40°C to +85°C and resistant to shock and vibration the company says the new non-contact sensor provides both a technical and environmental solution for advanced electric power steering systems.
