Reluctance speed sensor

The inductive sensor is a magneto whose alternating voltage can be interpreted directly by a controller in an automobile.

The inductive sensor can be used in an automobile as an r.p.m. sensor. For a controller, the cycle period is the dimension for the rotational speed. The more teeth the sensor's trigger wheel has and the faster it turns, the shorter the cycle period is.

In FluidSIM, a trigger wheel with 8 teeth is used and is displayed during the simulation. The rotational speed can be modified during the simulation.
