Digital Hall Effect Position/Motion Sensing of Off Road Equipment Components 881236
This paper will discuss a Hail Effect Magnetic Solid State position/motion sensor. This new type of Probe Sensor functions by sensing a change in magnetic field intensity and converts this change into an easy to use digital output voltage signal. The sensor discussed will be appropriate for use in extremely dirty and harsh environments found in Off Road applications.
Possible uses envisioned for these sensors include the following:
Engine timing and/or fuel control
Power shaft speed sensing
Wheel speed sensing
This paper will include an overview of the technology used and guidelines for incorporating the sensor in the above applications.
