SPECTEC zero speed Hall effect gear tooth sensors are used in industrial applications to determine shaft or gear speed or direction by detecting fluctuations in the magnetic field.

The Hall effect technology fulfills a wide array of applications due to a Hall effect sensor's ability to detect zero speed and the quadrature sensor's ability to detect direction change. The Hall effect gear tooth sensor's digital output is easily read by computers, motion control devices, position monitors and digital to analog converters.

Hall Effect Gear Tooth Sensors - Zero Speed Sensors - Digital Hall Sensor

SPECTEC's digital Hall effect gear tooth sensors are engineered with an internal magnet to switch in the presence of ferrous targets such as gear teeth and blade tips and serve in applications calling for zero speed sensors. The Hall effect gear tooth sensor can detect fluctuations in the magnetic field and can also be configured to detect the either the presence or absence of a ferro-magnetic target (i.e. a gear tooth).

The Hall effect gear sensor has the ability to sense a ferrous target while applying zero drag on the target wheel with a sensitivity that detects gear teeth as small as 0.10" wide and 0.10" deep. Air gaps of up to 1/8 inch are possible, depending on mass of target (size of gear).

Hall Speed Sensors For Directional Sensing

The Hall effect quadrature sensor has the ability to detect the direction a ferrous target is traveling while applying zero drag on the target wheel. This quadrature Hall effect sensor has a sensitivity that detects gear teeth as small as 0.10" wide and 0.10" deep. Air gaps of up to 0.125" inch are possible, depending on the size of the target gear.

SPECTEC's line of Hall effect sensors include intrinsically safe, single output, dual output, additional output for temperature, hermetically sealed, sanitary and conduit mount. Standard output (NPN) is provided by a 2.2 K ohm internal resistor to a collector which can sink 25mA. In addition, PNP and open collector types are available in order to serve all logic needs.

Zero Speed Hall Effect Gear Tooth Sensor Applications:

Hall effect gear tooth sensor applications such as fine gears, detection of very low to zero speed and the change in target direction. Hall effect sensors are used as vehicle speed sensors, wheel speed sensors, in ABS brake systems and as camshaft sensors. Additional applications are flow metering and in vehicle transmissions.
