These sensors are designed to detect the rotation speed and the angular position of fast-rotating parts, such as gears, phonic wheels, camshafts and crankshafts. Unlike other sensors on the market, they do not require laborious and costly line-up operations during installation as they are equipped with a single sensitive element. In addition to the sensor element and magnet, the sensor contains the electronic circuit for protection against supply voltage reversals and output short-circuits.
The vast range of supply voltage, normally between 6VDC and 24VDC, and a maximum operating frequency of 15KHz, make these sensors ideal for use in heavy-duty applications. Euroswitch sensors come with various types of fixing and resistance to environmental conditions. The materials used (brass, aluminium alloys, technopolymers) make them suitable for use in applications requiring lightness, strength and space-saving.
Hall-effect speed and rotation sensors are used in the motorcycle industry, in the manufacture of farming and earth-moving equipment and in all applications requiring the control of a rotating mechanical part.
