Custom Magnetic Sensor Design and Manufacturing

Custom Magnetic Sensor Design and Manufacturing

Beyond offering a catalog of 6000+ Hall Effect Switches, Gear Tooth Sensors, and other magnetic sensors Sensor Solutions is an Original Equipment Manufacturer of custom sensors for many applications. We also specialize in manufacturing OEM replacement sensors for applications where the original sensor is either no longer available, is not well suited, or is too expensive. In this application note you can find more information of on our custom sensor capabilities as well as guidelines for the information to provide when starting a custom sensor project.

Chopper Stabilization and Gear Tooth Sensors

Chopper Stabilization and Gear Tooth Sensors

Chopper stabilization is an electronic offset correction technique used on many Hall Effect sensors. The Hall Effect bridge element is sensitive to both magnetic fields, and to mechanical stresses put on the element. Mechanical stresses can come from molding the element into its IC…

Replacing A Speed Sensor Isn't Easy:

A guide to finding replacement magnetic field sensors in the Sensor Solutions Catalog.

Magnetic field sensors are commonly used for non-contact speed measurement. Determining a replacement that will work in a specific application can be difficult.…

The Effect of Mounting A Ferrous Metal Sensor in a Steel Sleeve

The Effect of Mounting A Ferrous Metal Sensor in a Steel Sleeve

TEST SUMMARY

The 275VPA and 275VPD Hall Effect Ferrous Metal Proximity Sensors both have the same magnetic structure. The intended use is to detect ferrous metal in front of the sensing face. The 275VPD sensors indicates when a steel target is within a specified gap range…

How to Hook Up an LED to a Magnetic Sensor

How to Hook Up an LED to a Magnetic Sensor

LEDs can provide a visual indication of the output state from a digital switching magnetic field sensor.LEDs provide a significant amount of light using a small amount of current, so they are nicely suited for use with magnetic sensors. Most LEDs are highly visible with 10mA. Sensor…
