The iC-MU EVAL MU3C is an evaluation kit that implements a complete off-axis magnetic multiturn absolute encoder based on iC-MU and iC-PVL. Serial BiSS/SSI and ABZ interfaces including line drivers are provided. The multiturn counter is backed by a super capacitor (alternatively battery) when VDD is not available.
The kit contains:
- 1x iC-MU iCSY MU3C
- 1x MU2S 30-32N
- 1x MU18S 30-32N
- 2x Cable 9 pol.
- 2x Cable 10 pol.
For easy access to the MU3C electrical interface please see the iC-MU EVAL MU5M adapter board.
iC-MU is used for magnetic off-axis position detection with integrated Hall sensors. By scanning two separate channels i.e. the master and nonius track, the device can provide an absolute position within one mechanical revolution.
Position data can be transmitted serially (SSI, BiSS, SPI), incrementally, or analog through two ports in various modes of operation. Commutation signals (U/V/W) for brushless DC (BLDC) motors with up to 16 pole pairs are derived from the absolute position.
