Relative Angle Sensor

Relative angle sensor  Description The Relative Angle Sensor component generates an output signal proportional to the relative angle between two attached rotational flanges. Equations $y={K}_{\mathrm{toUnit}}{\mathrm{\phi }}_{\mathrm{rel}}\phantom{\rule[-0.0ex]{1.5ex}{0.0ex}}{\mathrm{\phi }}_{\mathrm{rel}}={\mathrm{\phi }}_{b}-{\mathrm{\phi }}_{a}$ ${\mathrm{\tau }}_{a}=-{\mathrm{\tau }}_{b}=0$ Variables

 Name Units Description Modelica ID ${\mathrm{\phi }}_{\mathrm{rel}}$ $\mathrm{rad}$ Angle between flanges phi_rel ${\mathrm{\phi }}_{x}$ $\mathrm{rad}$ Angle of flange $x,x\in \left\{a,b\right\}$ flange_x.phi ${\mathrm{\tau }}_{x}$ $Nm$ Torque at flange $x,x\in \left\{a,b\right\}$ flange_x.tau ${K}_{\mathrm{toUnit}}$ Conversion factor to selected units Connections
