How to Select the Right Hall Effect Sensor for Your Application: A New Future Electronics Video

Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, announced the addition of “How to Select the Right Hall Effect Sensor for Your Application” to its video series on selecting the best electronic components for various applications, available on the company’s YouTube channel.

A Hall Effect sensor is a transducer which varies its output voltage in reaction to a magnetic field. These types of sensors are used for proximity switching, speed detection, positioning and current sensing applications.

When appropriately packaged, Hall Effect sensors are immune to dust, dirt, mud, and water. These characteristics make Hall Effect devices better for position sensing than alternative means such as optical and electromechanical sensing. They also offer a mechanical robustness and can be used in applications with multiple cycles that require wear-free operation due to their contact-free position sensing. Hall Effect sensors can also work in an extended temperature range and are accurate and reliable enough to be used in industrial and scientific applications.

Hall Effect sensors are often combined with circuitry which allows the device to act in a digital on/off switch mode. They are often seen in industrial applications and in consumer equipment. For example, some computer printers can use them in order to detect open covers and missing paper. They can also be found in various types of sensors such as rotating speed sensors, current sensors, pressure sensors, fluid flow sensors and speed detection.

There are several different kinds of Hall Effect sensors. Future Electronics stocks many of the most common types categorized by type, operating temperature range, supply current, supply voltage, packaging type and output current. The parametric filters on the company’s website can help users refine their search results depending on the required specifications.
