Provide non-contacting detection of rotating ferrous (affects a magnetic field) target such as a gear, shaft or similar mechanism.
Honeywell offers electronic speed and position sensors designed for enhanced reliability and an extended life. We use multiple technologies to detect a change in magnetic field and create an electronic signal for control system interface. These technologies offer the ability to detect speed, direction, or position of a moving ferrous metal or magnetic target. Sensing is accomplished without contacting the target, and there are no moving parts. This eliminates mechanical wear of the sensor or target.
Honeywell offers a comprehensive line-up of Hall-effect, magnetoresistive, and variable reluctance sensors which provide electrical compatibility to most control system interfaces. We also offer a variety of sensor package types designed to enable mounting flexibility and wire harness interface compatibility.
The Honeywell Speed and Position portfolio has been developed to support potential transportation and industrial customer application requirements.
Make a selection to narrow in on the product that's right for you.
Hall-effect and mag speed sensors provide digital output directly to controller; no signal conditioning required.
VRS sensors generate analog voltage output when target rotates past sensor. Separate electrical interface needed to process output to digital signal.
