HN Series Hall Effect Speed Sensors

Manufacturer: Motion Sensors Inc.
Measurement Category: Motion
Operating Environment: Dry Enclosed Space
Mounting: Arbitrary direciton; 0.1" airgap from target
Communication Protocol: TTL
Operating Mode: Free Streaming
Power Supply Type: VDC
Power Specification: 4.7 - 24 VDC, 15 mA max with no load


The HN 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 are magnetically based, requiring a ferrous metal or embedded magnet target. A preamplifier/signal conditioner is integrated, providing excellent noise immunity and greater transmission capability. The output frequency of these sensors has a square pulse waveform these pulses, in turn, can be correlated to determine flow rate, RPM, or velocity. This model is non-oriented, allowing for easy installation.

Sensor Measurements

  • 1-Axis Velocity (Translation)
  • 1-Axis Angular Rate (Rotation)
