Hall sensor

In a Hall sensor, an electric voltage called Hall voltage is generated. The required electric and magnetic processes take place in the smallest of spaces on the Hall IC, which requires an external power supply (positive terminal: connector 1, negative terminal: connector 2).

The Hall sensor can record a rotational position without contact. In FluidSIM, a trigger wheel with 8 teeth is used and is displayed during the simulation. The rotational position and the rotational speed can be modified during the simulation.

The Hall sensor is modeled as a simple electronic switch. If there is a tooth in front of the sensor, connector 1 is switched through to connector 3.
