The high sensitivity Hall-effect switches
have been optimized to operate over the supply range of 2.5V to 5.5V and use a micropower sleep function to give an average supply current of only 8[micro]A.
* Hall-effect switches
utilize a chopper-stabilized architecture with an internal bandgap referenced to achieve reliable operation over a wide -40[degrees]C to +125[degrees]C temperature range with minimal switching point drift
Diodes Incorporated has introduced a new family of high-performance, unipolar Hall-effect switches
designed for operation over a supply range of 3.0 V to 28 V in consumer and industrial applications.
Position sensors used in these limit switches contain mechanical reed or Hall-effect switches
. Both types are available in a normally-open or normally-closed configuration.
