Title (EN) ELECTRONIC STEERING COLUMN MODULE
(FR) MODULE ELECTRONIQUE DE COLONNE DE DIRECTION
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to an electronic steering column module for an automobile, comprising a housing (12) which supports a printed circuit (10), said printed circuit being mounted around the steering column (2), and comprising means for contactlessly measuring the angular position of said steering column. Said measuring means comprise semi-circular spiral coils (13) and a ferromagnetic ring (14) that is contact with the coils, which are arranged concentrically around the steering column through hole (4) and which co-operate with a semi-circular magnet (21) that is fixed to the steering column and is positioned opposite the ferromagnetic ring (14). The inventive module also comprises analogue means (16, 17) for detecting the position of control levers (3) and for measuring the torque exerted on the steering column.
(FR) Module électronique de colonne de direction pour véhicule automobile, comprenant un boîtier (12) portant un circuit imprimé (10), monté autour de la colonne de direction (2) et comportant des moyens de mesure sans contact de la position angulaire de celle-ci constitués par des bobines spirales (13) semi-circulaires et un anneau ferromagnétique (14) en contact avec les bobines, disposés de manière concentrique au trou de passage (4) de la colonne de direction, coopérant avec un aimant semi-circulaire (21) solidaire de la colonne de direction et placé en regard de l'anneau ferromagnétique (14). Le module comprend également des moyens analogues (16, 17) de détection de la position de manettes de commande (3) et de mesure du couple exercé sur la colonne de direction.
