Ultra-sensitive magnetoresistive sensor ICs suit a wide range of applications

02-03-2015 | RS Components | Test & Measurement

Suitable for a wide range of applications due to their ultra-sensitive
characteristics, Honeywell's Nanopower Series magnetoresistive sensor ICs
are now available from RS Components.

The device can be used in applications with large air gaps, small magnetic
fields and where there is a low power requirement. Instillation is
simplified as they do not require the magnetic polarity to be identified and
they will respond to either the north or south pole applied in a direction
parallel to the sensor which potentially could help reduce system costs.

The sensors are particularly efficient and can be operated on a supply
voltage as low as 1.65V with a low average current consumption and a
push-pull output which does not require a pull-up resistor, again reducing
costs.
