MU1L 41-16N is a magnetic tape with a two track nonius coding suitable for the iC-MU. The code comprises of 16 (master) and 15 (nonius) pole pairs on a length of 40.96 mm.
The total length of the tape is 80 mm.
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.
