Title (EN) SENSOR ASSEMBLY
(FR) ENSEMBLE CAPTEUR
Abstract:
(EN) A sensor assembly (118) including a housing, a shield member (156), a magnetic field sensor (158), and a sensing magnet (126). The housing is configured to be mounted at least proximate to an electromagnetic coil that generates a first magnetic field to cause a movable component to move linearly along an axis based on the strength of the first magnetic field. The sensing magnet (126) is configured to be coupled to the movable component to move therewith. The magnetic field sensor (158) and the sensing magnet (126) are disposed within a shielded chamber defined by the shield member (156), which is ferrous to shield the magnetic field sensor and sensing magnet from the first magnetic field. The magnetic field sensor detects an electrical characteristic responsive to a second magnetic field produced by the sensing magnet to monitor a position of the movable component along the axis.
(FR) L'invention concerne un ensemble capteur (118) qui comprend un boîtier, un élément de protection (156), un capteur de champ magnétique (158) et un aimant de détection (126). Le boîtier est configuré pour être monté au moins à proximité d'une bobine électromagnétique qui génère un premier champ magnétique pour amener un élément mobile à se déplacer linéairement le long d'un axe sur la base de l'intensité du premier champ magnétique. L'aimant de détection (126) est conçu pour être couplé à l'élément mobile pour se déplacer avec celui-ci. Le capteur de champ magnétique (158) et l'aimant de détection (126) sont disposés à l'intérieur d'une chambre de protection délimitée par l'élément de protection (156), qui est en matière ferreuse pour protéger le capteur de champ magnétique et l'aimant de détection du premier champ magnétique. Le capteur de champ magnétique détecte une caractéristique électrique en réponse à un second champ magnétique produit par l'aimant de détection pour surveiller une position de l'élément mobile le long de l'axe.
