Magnet Detecting Speed Sensors

Rotational or linear speed of an object can be measured by attaching one or more magnets to the object so that they will pass perpendicular to the sensors. Digital Hall Switch Sensors, Magneto-Resistive Switches, and Reed Switches all function as speed sensors for detecting magnets. NOTE: Reed switches mechanically open and close when detecting magnets and the life of the switch is dependent on the amount of power passing through. Therefore these switches are not recommended for extended, constant switching applications.

Magnetic speed sensors are available for all of the following applications,

  • South Pole Magnetic Field Detection
  • Either Pole Magnetic Field Detection
  • Dual Outputs (one South Pole and one North Pole)
  • Quadrature or Speed/Direction Outputs for detecting direction of movement
  • High sensitivity, Low Sensitivity, and Custom programmed Sensitivities
  • Latching outputs for creating 50% duty cycles with alternating pole magnets

Magnets of many sizes and shapes are available in our Accessory Catalog.

More information on speed sensor selection can be found in our Application Notes.
