MINNEAPOLIS, MN — Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today added low-cost alternatives to its line of standard bipolar Hall-effect sensors. The sensors, often ideal for customers requiring high-volume applications and reduced lead time, offer enhanced sensitivity and operating temperature range as well as a faster output switching time than competitors’ similar offerings.
The SS40F/SS40G Enhanced Low-Cost Bipolar Hall-Effect Position Sensors are designed to provide a level of compensation for magnetic changes over a range of temperatures; the SS41F/SS41G Low-Cost Bipolar Hall-Effect Position Sensors are for general purpose applications. These miniature, versatile digital Hall-effect devices offer a built-in regulator designed to provide stable operation over a 4.5 Vdc to 24 Vdc supply voltage range. Internal circuitry is designed to prevent sensor damage in case the supply voltage polarity is accidentally reversed. F-suffix versions are factory tested at 25 °C; G-suffix versions are factory tested at 25 °C and 125 °C.
Potential applications include speed and RPM (revolutions per minute) sensing, brushless dc (direct current) motor commutation, motor and fan control, tachometer, counter pickup and flow-rate sensing.
