Motor Angle Calibration with X431 PAD VII, European Euro Tab III, MM4.0 etc

Any of Launch X431 PAD VII, European Euro Tab III, MM4.0 (other devices can buy “Motor Angle Calibration” function in Mall module) can calibrate the rotation angle sensor of the motor for BMW, MINI, Toyota, Lexus, Honda, Acura.

 

Why it is necessary to calibrate the rotation angle sensor of the motor?

A resolver is a type of rotation angle sensor for controlling the drive motor that is the power source of EVs. By efficiently controlling the motor, power consumption can be suppressed. To control the motor according to various driving conditions of a vehicle, it is necessary to detect the magnetic pole position of the motor and accurately grasp its rotational speed. The resolver serves as a sensor for these tasks.

The speed of the motor that is the heart of the electric vehicle, when the motor is working in a high temperature environment or in a humid, dusty and other environment for a long time, the resolver (rotation angle sensor) is prone to failure. After the failure, the rotation angle sensor signal is faulty, resulting in the motor not working normally, reducing the system reliability, and affecting the normal driving of the vehicle.

At this time, it is necessary to calibrate the rotation angle sensor of the motor.
