Position Sensors / Detectors / Transducers

Hall-Effect Digital Position Sensors have omnipolar design.

Operated by north or south pole of magnetic field from permanent magnet or electromagnet, SS351AT/SS451A sensors eliminate need for magnet polarity to be identified. They operate from 3-24 Vdc and up to 302°F and offer built-in reverse polarity protection. While SS351AT is subminiature SOT-23 SMT device available on tape and reel, SS451A is supplied in leaded, flat TO-92 package. Thermally...
