With 11 Gauss max sensitivity, Honeywell’s Standard Power Series Sensor ICs allow larger air gaps between the sensor IC and the magnet or decreasing the total design cost by using smaller, less expensive magnets. The magnetoresistive (MR) sensors have a solid-state, non-contact, no-glass design that makes them durable and reliable and operate over a temperature range of -40 to 185°F (-40 °C to 85 °C). The sensors have a 3 Vdc-24 Vdc supply voltage range, omnipolar operation and are offered in various package options.
Applications include flow sensing in HVAC, anti-tamper detection in utility meters, RPM sensing in exercise equipment, door position detection and more.
