Wheel Speed Sensor


The "hall effect" wheel speed sensor is highly robust and designed specifically for high reliability automotive applications. It does not require a magnet to trigger it, just a moving metal "target". The sensor is supplied with 4m cable, and is ready for direct connection to the DL1 etc.

- Better signal to noise ratio than variable reluctance sensors.
- Sensor electronically self adjusts to slight variations in runout and variations in temperature.
- Fast operating speed – over 100 kHz
- EMI resistant
- Wide continuous operating temperature range.
