Hall Effect Sensor

Application ID: 98351

A Hall effect sensor is a semiconductive material with an anisotropic conductivity that is a function of the magnetic field. A magnet, mounted on a wheel, is rotated around nearby the sensor and the variation in the electric potential across the sensor is modeled.
