What do developers need to know about Current Sensing Technology – All about AMR Based Current Sensing
For Server Farm and Telecom Power Supplies, IoT applications, Appliances, Inverters and Motor Control, Industrial Robots and Manufacturing Systems, Automotive EV Charging Stations and many other tech applications -- Andover, Massachusetts- May 7, 2019 ACEINNA today announced the availability of a new whitepaper for engineers involved in developing power management solutions for a wide range of industrial applications. Written by Khagendra Thapa, VP Current Sensor Product for ACEINNA, this new whitepaper outlines the basic issues that are addressed by current sensors and why they are important.
The white paper also explains what AMR (Anisotropic Magnetoresistive) technology is and what are its advantages for current sensing versus other technologies like hall effect, transformers and shunt resistor.
“Integrated, AMR based current censors provides the best performance for the price in the industry,” says Khagendra Thapa, VP Current Sensor Product for ACEINNA. “An AMR based sensor is especially valuable for applications where isolation is needed, due to its construction, compared to legacy methods.”
Additionally, this white paper explains how a unique U shaped current path architecture that utilizes two side by side AMR sensors is able to nullify external magnetic fields, providing the design engineer with a great deal more flexibility regarding the sensors placement on the end device.
