Hall Effect Sensor Description
A Hall effect sensor is a device that is used to measure the magnitude of a magnetic field. Manufacturers of electrical machines will place magnetic materials on the machine at particular rotor angles to allow Hall Effect sensors to be able to detect when they are near the specific position on the machine. Through simple signal processing the voltage induced by the magnetic materials can be transformed into digital signals that turn active (true) when the Hall Effect sensor reaches the angle of the machine. The digital signals can then be used by a controller to calculate absolute position and/or speed. This Hall Effect Sensor model supports three independent sensor positions.
