Need the easiest way to measure a magnetic field? Use the Hall sensor from the Troyka Module series. It’s easy to work with and extremely easy to use - no soldering, no small components, no confusion. Nothing needs to be set up, everything is ready for you to use!
The Hall sensor can be found in many different applications. In addition to measuring the proximity of an electric field and determining the magnetic pole, the Hall sensor can be used as a tachometer, door sensor, shaft position sensor (when operating a brushless motor), or a water level sensor. It’s even possible to use two Hall sensors to create an encoder.
The Hall sensor is based on the SS49E chip.
This module from the Troyka Module series can be neatly placed on the front panel of your device, fastened with М3 screws.
The output of the sensor is an analog signal. In the absence of a magnetic field, the sensor outputs half the supply voltage. When a magnetic field appears, the value decreases toward zero or increases toward supply voltage as a function of the polarity of the magnetic field and is proportional to its intensity.
Troyka Shield. The most straightforward method. Connect the module to a pin group on Troyka Shield with the 3-pin jumper cable and you’re ready to interface with it from your Arduino.
Troyka Slot Shield. The best choice for quick prototyping. Using slots on the shield, you can get rid of cables. The module will be held securely in place using both pin headers.
Breadboard. For advanced use. Troyka pin headers have 0.1” spacing which is compatible with any breadboard. Simply wire the module like you would do with any IC.
