Abstract:
In contrast to the single functioned sensors based on the Hall effect or optical technology, a new multifunctional contactless sensor realized by the giant magneto resistance (GMR) effect is proposed. The sensor unit consists of a flexible magnetic stripe and a GMR detector. The sensor possesses the advantages of diagnosis function, simple structure, low cost, compact size, low power consumption, noise immunity, portability, and flexible installing function. Compared with the traditional optical tachometer, it can be used for measuring rotational speed and translational speed; and possibly used for diagnosis in machines. A high precision linear servo control system has been implemented as a demonstrative platform to verify sensitivity and accuracy of the GMR detector. Our result shows that the error percentage of speed measurement is smaller than 0.004%, which is competitive to the general industrial encoders.
