Where to use hall-effect sensor:

A hall-effect sensor as then name suggests works with the principle of hall-effect and is used to detect magnets. Each side of the sensor can detect one particular pole. It can also be easily interfaced with a microcontroller since it works on transistor logic.

So if you are looking for a sensor to detect magnet for measuring speed of a moving object or just to detect objects then this sensor might be the perfect choice for your project.

 

How to use Hall-effect sensor:

There are two main types of hall-effect sensor, one which gives an analog output and the other which gives a digital output. A3144 is a digital output hall sensor, meaning if it detects a magnet the output will go low else the output will remain high. It is also mandatory to use a pull-up resistor as shown below to keep the output high when no magnet is detected.

 Circuit using A3144 Hall effect Sensor

In the above circuit diagram the resistor R1 (10K) is used as a pull-up resistor and the capacitor C1 (0.1uF) is used to filter any noise that might be coupled with the digital output.

 

Applications:

  • Used to detect magnets(objects) in automation systems
  • Used in magnetic door alarm system
  • Measure speed in automobiles
  • Detect the pole of magnets in BLDC motors
