Magnetic Hall effect sensors

Low power, highly reliable, cost-optimized solutions for magnetic position sensing

Position measurement

Measure precise absolute position of linear and angular movements within a system to carry out corresponding functions using linear Hall sensors.

Proximity detection

Detect the presence or absence of a magnetic field for simple on/off or open/close applications using Hall effect switches.

Rotational sensing

Obtain speed and direction for rotary encoding and rotor position for motor commutation using Hall effect latches or linear Hall sensors.

Why Hall effect sensors for magnetic position sensing?

TI's magnetic Hall effect sensors are known for robust durability and dependable operation for any position sensing application. Whether simply detecting the closing of a lid or performing complex motor commutation and precise position measurement, Hall effect sensors will reliably and accurately sense the position in your system.

Key industrial applications

  • Cordless handheld garden tools & cordless power tools - Hall effect sensors provide position measurment in motors, speed selectors and triggers to carry out proper functions.
  • E-meters - Hall effect sensors offer solutions for magnetic tamper and case tamper detection.
  • Door & window sensors: Hall effect sensors can be used to detect window and door tampering for home security.

Key automotive applications

  • Electric power steering - Monitor the position of the shifter, motor, steering wheel angle and torque with Hall effect sensors.
  • Body motors - Hall effect sensors enable motor commutation in various modules throughout the vehicle.
  • Engine fan & pump - Monitor the status of engine fans and various pumps wihin the vehicle using Hall effect sensors.
