Title: SENSOR ARRANGEMENT FOR A BRAKE UNIT OF A VEHICLE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a sensor arrangement having at least one magnetic sensor (1), at least one magnet (2) and a housing (11), for a brake unit of a vehicle. According to the invention, to create advantageous design conditions, a shaft (3) is mounted such that it can rotate in the housing (11) and relative to a holder (9) on which the at least one magnet (2) is located, and the holder (9) and the at least one magnetic sensor (1) are mounted in the housing and secured against rotation relative to the housing (11) in such a manner that, when the shaft (3) rotates, the at least one magnet (2) executes translational movements relative to the at least one magnetic sensor (1). This means that a transmission with an angle sensor is not needed on the brake unit, and therefore a particularly cost-effective and compact arrangement is achieved.
