Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19817356A1] The detector determines an angle between a sensor arrangement (4,5,6,7) and a magnetic field generated by a magnet (2). At least four Hall elements (4,5,6,7) are arranged in the magnetic field. Flux conducting elements (3) of ferromagnetic material are arranged between the Hall elements and fixedly connected to them. The magnet (2) is arranged to rotate relative to the Hall elements and flux elements. Independent claims also cover a method of determining the angle using the arrangement.
