Hall Effect Speed Sensors
Our Hall effect speed sensors are designed to measure down to zero speed. A Hall effect switch provides an output pulse in response to the presence of an external magnetic field, due to the change in magnetic flux density. The N-series gear tooth Hall effect speed sensors instead detect ferrous material. These contain an internal magnet which creates a bias field, the presence of the gear tooth results in an increase in the magnetic flux density causing the device to switch.
Hall effect speed sensors are active devices, requiring a power supply. We typically use an integral MS 10SL-3P connector, though models with flying leads or a 3-core screened captive cable are also available.
We place great emphasis on the quality and reliability of our product and all of our hall effect sensors are supplied with a 2 year warranty.
