Hall Sensors

Reed Sensors vs. Hall & Electromechanical

Standex-Meder Electronics

This tutorial will focus on the following sensor technologies – reed sensors, hall sensors and electromechanical sensors. These sensors all provide a switching function either directly or indirectly. An overview will be given on the key specifications, and how these parameters compare to each other for the different technologies.
