Simple Calibration for angle accuracy of 0.1°
Rotation Angle Sensors
Does calibration method to achieve an accuracy of about 0.1° require complicated work?
Then what is our solution…
It's as simple as rotating the shaft just three times.
An example of calibration is shown below. Click here for a demonstration video.
(The product used in the video is the AK7454, but you can use the AK7455 as well.)
① What you need: motors, drivers, micro-controllers, magnets, and AK7455.
② Attach a magnet on the shaft and install the board with the AK7455 to the motor.
③ Rotate the shaft twice and acquire angle data, then create calibration data.
④ Write the calibration data to the AK7455.
⑤ Check the final accuracy by rotating the shaft once.
This is the end of calibration.
The above is an example of a stepper motor. If you consider using a DC brushless motor, please contact us.
The AK7455 can be used in two ways: Shaft-End and non-Shaft-End (Off-Axis) configuration. Calibration is performed in the same way for both Shaft-End and Off-Axis. As for the accuracy after calibration, it is possible to achieve an accuracy of about 0.1° as with Shaft-End, even with Off-Axis.
For Off-Axis, please refer to “Off-Axis configuration enhances the design flexibility”.
