SNDH Series Sensors for Heavy-Duty Vehicles

Product Announcement from Honeywell Sensing and Internet of Things


Honeywell's SNDH Series Hall-Effect Speed Sensors use a magnetically biased Hall-effect integrated circuit to accurately sense movement of ferrous metal targets. The specially designed IC (integrated circuit) and a permanent magnet are sealed in rugged, probe-type packages. The flux density of the permanent magnet alters when approached by ferrous metal. This is detected by the Hall ICs. If the sensor is positioned at the circumference of a revolving gear wheel, for example, it detects the teeth and tooth spaces, supplying a digital pulse output with frequency proportional to gear wheel speed. Optimum performance is dependent upon variables which must be considered in combination: target material, geometry and speed, sensor/target gap, and environmental temperature. Potential applications:Engine forward and reverse direction controlEngine MPH monitoringSteering positionTachometers/counterEncodersSpeed and direction of gears and shafts in transmissions, hydraulic motors, pumps and gear boxes.
