AI- Tek Instruments DH Series are differential based, zero-speed, precision, single-channel, speed sensors. At power-up, they calibrate themselves to the unique magnetic signature of their installed application and continue to update the calibration as the sensor is running.
The experts at AI-Tek have been designing and manufacturing Hall Effect sensors for harsh applications for over sixty years. With a dedication to providing reliable and accurate sensors, the Magnetic Hall Effect Sensor DH Series product line is developed specifically for the industrial, rail, military, and automotive industries.
AI-Tek has taken its years of experience in designing and manufacturing Hall Effect sensors for harsh applications and has developed a line of durable products for industrial, rail, military, and automotive use.
This unique combination of differential sensing technology and calibration makes these sensors highly tolerant of installation misalignment, target geometry and composition, target run-out, vibration, and air gap changes.
In comparison, the RH series are single-element based, zero speed, single-channel speed sensors and are an excellent choice for general-purpose speed sensing. Unlike the Magnetic Hall Effect Sensor DH Series that requires rotational alignment at installation, the RH requires no alignment. Air gap adjustment is precise and easy and similar to a VR type sensor.
The Magnetic Hall Effect Sensor DH Series can sense each change in target movement, regardless of speed, from zero to 15 kHz frequency range, generating a steady pulse train of frequency proportional to the target speed. Typically, each time a gear tooth (or any ferrous discontinuity) passes in front of the sensor the output changes state. This type of sensor is known as a “P” type because it uses N-P-N transistor logic (as opposed to the “N” type, which uses P-N-P transistor logic).
