Provide non-contacting detection of rotating ferrous (affects a magnetic field) target such as a gear, shaft or similar mechanism.
Measure target speed and/or direction
Digital or analog output
Output has frequency proportional to rotational target speed
Target must have gear tooth pattern of teeth and slots
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.
