Magnetic sensor offers accurate three-dimensional sensing using extremely low power

16-08-2019 | RS Components | Development Boards

The Infineon S2GO3DSENSETLV493DTOBO1, Shield2Go is equipped with TLV493D-A1B6 - XENSIV 3D Magnetic Sensor Demonstration Board and available now from RS Components.


The 3D magnetic sensor TLV493D-A1B6 provides accurate three-dimensional sensing with remarkably low power consumption in a small six-pin package. With its magnetic field detection in x, y, and z-direction, the sensor dependably measures three-dimensional, linear and rotation movements. Applications incorporate joysticks, control elements (white goods, multifunction knops), or electric meters (anti-tampering) and any other application that demands accurate angular measurements or low power consumptions. The integrated temperature sensor can be used for plausibility checks.


Key features are 3D magnetic sensing with very low power consumption during operations. The sensor provides a digital output via two-wire based standard I2C interface up to 1MBit/sec and 12-bit data resolution for each measurement direction (Bx, By and Bz linear field measurement up to +-130mT).
