Nanopower magnetoresistive sensor ICs satisfy a variety of needs

25-02-2015 | Farnell element14 | Test & Measurement

Honeywell Nanopower magnetoresistive sensor ICs are now available from
Farnell element14. The devices feature omnipolar sensing, so that it does
not matter whether a North or South pole is applied, simplifying
installation and potentially reducing system cost.

The ICs feature low power consumption and a push-pull output that does not
require a pull-up resistor. The sensor ICs can operate from a supply voltage
as low as 1.65V, promoting energy efficiency. They are available in two
magnetic sensitivities to accommodate a variety of application needs.

Typical applications include industrial mobile equipment (i.e., handheld
computing equipment, scanners); water, electric and gas utility meters;
building access control; reed switch replacement for battery-operated
security systems; industrial smoke detectors. Medical: exercise equipment;
infusion pumps; drawer position sensing (e.g., medical cabinets); hospital
beds. White goods: lid, door and drawer position detection; fluid flow.
Medium-sized consumer electronics: battery-optimisation position sensor.
