Introduction: Hall Effect Sensor - NI Multisim
Build a magnetic switch using a Hall Effect sensor in Multisim. 5 to 10 minute newbie special!
A Hall effect sensor is a transducer that varies its output voltage in response to a magnetic field. Hall effect sensors are used forproximity switching, positioning, speed detection, and current sensing applications.
In its simplest form, the sensor operates as an analog transducer, directly returning a voltage. With a known magnetic field, its distance from the Hall plate can be determined. Using groups of sensors, the relative position of the magnet can be deduced.
