Detailed Design Procedure

Linear Hall effect sensors provide flexibility in mechanical design, because many possible magnet orientations and movements produce a usable response from the sensor. Figure 20 shows one of the most common orientations, which uses the full north to south range of the sensor and causes a close-to-linear change in magnetic flux density as the magnet moves across.

When designing a linear magnetic sensing system, always consider these three variables: the magnet, sensing distance, and the range of the sensor. Select the DRV5055 with the highest sensitivity that has a BL (linear magnetic sensing range) that is larger than the maximum magnetic flux density in the application. To determine the magnetic flux density the sensor receives, TI recommends using magnetic field simulation software, referring to magnet specifications, and testing.
