These sensors respond to the presence or the
interruption of a magnetic field by producing
adigital or an analog output proportional
to the magnetic field strength. Digital and
devices are operated by the magnetic field from a permanent magnet or elect
romagnet. Actuation mode depends on
magnets used. Integral magnet position sensorsare operated by either a vane passing through a gap
or a magnet mounted on a plastic plunger.
Best Used For:
Applications that require accurate, reliable outputs.Found in brushless DC motors, utility meters, weldingequipment,
vending machines, home appliances, computersand so on.
