Versatile sensors help reduce manufacturing costs
10 March 2009
Honeywell has introduced its SS361RT and SS461R Bipolar Latch, Hall-Effect Magnetic Position Sensors, giving customers the opportunity to help reduce manufacturing costs.
Versatile sensors may help reduce manufacturing costs
The SS361RT and SS461R sensors' enhanced sensitivity enables the use of less expensive magnets in some applications. The SS361RT sensor's very small footprint takes up less space on the printed circuit board, typically allowing for a reduction in costs. The SS361RT sensor is supplied on tape and reel, allowing for automated, high-volume, lower-cost pick-and-place assembly.
Honeywell designed the SS361RT and SS461R sensors for potential use in industrial, medical, and transportation motion control applications.
Honeywell's SS361RT and SS461R sensors feature a 3 V supply voltage capability for low-voltage applications. The sensors are available in two package styles, providing application flexibility. The SS361RT's miniature SOT-23 surface mount package utilizes a tape and reel format; the SS461R's flat TO-92 style is available in bulk.
