MICRO SWITCH'S new Linear Output Hall Effect Transducer (LOHET) provides the designer of automotive electronics significantly improved position and current sensing capabilities. The LOHET is a new three terminal sensor which combines time proven Hall effect sensing technology and advanced thick film techniques. The LOHET generates an output voltage that is proportional to magnetic fields present at its sensing surface. When combined with appropriate magnetics, the LOHET can be used to sense the position of mechanical assemblies. LOHET can also be used in combination with coil and core assemblies to sense current. LOHET can even be used to sense temperature when combined with a bellows and magnetics. LOHET is an extremely versatile Hall effect sensor and will offer numerous solutions to the sensing needs of the 80's.
