Omnipolar Hall-effect sensor suits 3.6 to 24-volt operation

Allegro MicroSystems, Inc. claims its new A3245 sensor is the industry’s first omnipolar Hall-effect device suited for 3.6 V to 24 V operation. The omnipolar feature allows the new digital switch to easily replace reed switches, and eliminates the need for signal conditioning and magnet orientation for simple position sensing applications during manufacturing.
