Advantages and disadvantages of hall effect transducer

There are some advantages of hall effect transducer which are given below,

  • High speed operation over 100 KHz possible. Whereas at high frequencies the inductive or capacitive sensor output begins to distort.
  • Non contact operation so there is no wear and friction, hence unlimited number of operating cycles.
  • When packed immune to dust, air, water where as capacitive sensor may get triggered by dust.
  • It can measure zero speed.
  • Highly repeatable operation.
  • Capable of measuring large current.

There are some disadvantages of hall Effect transducer which are given below,

  • It may be affected by external interfering magnetic field.
  • Large temperature drift.
  • Large offset voltage.
