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.

How to Select the Right Proximity Sensor for Your Application: New Future Electronics Video

Montreal, Canada – December 18, 2012 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, has launched another how-to video as part of its series about how to select the best electronic components for different applications. “How to Select the Right Proximity Sensor for Your Application” is now online, along with many other helpful tutorials available on the company’s YouTube channel.

A proximity sensor is an electronic sensor capable of detecting the presence of nearby objects without physical contact. It emits an electromagnetic field or a beam of electromagnetic radiation and then looks for changes in the return signal or field.

The object that is being sensed is the proximity sensor’s target. Depending on the proximity sensor targets, different sensors may be used. For example, an inductive proximity sensor requires a metallic target, whereas a capacitive photoelectric sensor may be suitable for a plastic target. A proximity sensor that is adjusted to a very short range can often be used as a touch switch.

Proximity sensors have a long functional life and high reliability due to the absence of mechanical parts and the lack of physical contact between the sensor and the target. Proximity sensors are able to work in high shock applications and can measure accelerations down to zero Hertz. They can also be used in any orientation and have no moving parts. Other advantages are that they are compact, have a large dynamic range, are cheap and easy to use, and offer long term stability.

Proximity sensors have a wide range of applications including parking assistance for car bumpers (which sense the distance to other nearby cars). They can also be used in conveyor systems, vibration measurements of rotating shafts in machinery, roller coasters, ground proximity warning systems for aviation safety, anti-aircraft warfare and touch screens on mobile devices that come in close proximity with the user’s face.
Clear step-by-step visuals and narration help explain the basics of proximity sensors, and show how to find the right proximity sensor on the company’s website. The narrator demonstrates easy, user-friendly site navigation, filtering by application, as well as characteristics like sensing axis, operating temperature range, sensing range, supply voltage, packaging type, supply current, manufacturer and more, and find the right part for all kinds of applications.
