Oriented Hall Effect Speed Sensors - H Series

The H series of sensors is based on Hall Effect sensor technology, which can sense a change in target motion from true zero to 20 KHz. These sensors incorporate a magnet within the sensor, enabling them to sense ferrous metal as well as magnet targets and can be optimized to detect fine as well as large pitch targets. These sensors integrate a preamplifier/signal conditioner within the sensor housing that provides excellent noise immunity and greater transmission capability. The output frequency of these sensors has a square pulse waveform (digital) that directly relates to the number of turbine blades, gear teeth, etc. that have been sensed. These pulses, in turn, can be correlated to determine flow rate, RPM, or velocity.

In addition to the standard models, oriented hall effect sensors are available in custom lengths, diameters, configurations, and mounting threads. MSI also offers Intrinsically Safe versions for applications or environments that require Intrinsic Safety.

Installation Considerations
