The Honeywell HMC1501 and HMC1512 are miniature surface mount sensors for linear, angular, or rotary displacement designed for magnetic saturating field sensing. The HMC1501 contains a single saturated-mode Wheatstone bridge sense element that creates an output voltage with respect to the direction of the magnetic flux passing over the sensor surface. The HMC1512 contains dual saturated-mode Wheatstone bridge elements co-located to provide an extended range of angular displacements. Both sensor types are cost effective and space-efficient solutions for high volume OEM designs. Applications for the HMC15xx sensors include Position Sensing, Rotary speed and angle detection and non-contact precision location measurement systems.

The HMC15xx sensors utilize Honeywell’s Anisotropic Magnetoresistive (AMR) technology that provides advantages over hall-effect based magnetic sensors. They are able to resolve better than tenths of a degree or tenths of millimetres, withstand large variations in magnet-to-sensor gaps, and exhibit insensitivity to shocks and vibrations. Honeywell’s Magnetic Sensors are among the most precision and reliable position sensors in the industry.
