THE LICON WHEEL VELOCITY SENSOR--AN APPLICATION OF FERRITE CORE TECHNOLOGY
The wheel velocity sensor is an active, proximity sensor developed to be used with a variety of exciter rings and tone wheels in anti-skid systems, or as a tachometer sensor, a crankshaft position sensor, or in similar applications where the speed of a rotating vane is to be monitored. The sensor provides an output signal with amplitude independent of the rotation rate of the vane, down to "zero speed". The development of the senor is discussed, and the performance characteristics of the sensor and the interface integrated circuit are described.
