This New Product Brief (NPB) is part of a video series highlighting the features, applications, and technical specs of newly-released products.

HONEYWELL VG481V1 Back Biased Hall-effect Speed Sensor ICs

Honeywell VG481V1 Back-Biased Hall-effect Speed Sensor ICs use a dual-peak-detecting circuit to provide accurate speed sensing and zero speed capability, even for applications with run-out and other variations. 

The back-biased sensors are a cost-effective and highly integrated devices that are easy to use. The internal voltage regulator allows the ICs to operate from a 4V to 24V input and is protected against reverse voltage connection, while the open collector output is rated for 20mA and has short circuit protection. The sensors are housed in a TO-92-style package and are AEC-Q100 Grade 0 qualified with a -40°C to +150°C operating temperature range, making them ideal for use in tachometer, stability control, and other automotive applications as well as speed sensing in consumer applications such as fitness equipment.
