Micronas HAL102TQ-I

Hall Switch Family Designed for White Goods and Industrial Applications   

Package: SOT89 SMD

Ordering Code: HAL 102TQ-I

Interface: 3-Wire

Switching Behavior: Latching, High Sensitivity

Temp. Range: -20°C to +125°C

Switching Points [mT] at 25°C: BON 2.6 - BOFF -2.6


Micronas offers the world’s broadest range of Hall-effect sensors, which are increasingly being utilized in a variety of industrial applications, including factory and process automation; building, home, and office automation; medical applications; mobility and robotics controllers; agriculture and heavy machinery; garden and power tools; and household items such as washing machines, tumble dryers, induction cookers, and heating and cooling (HVAC) systems. 

The HAL 102 Hall switch is designed for home appliances and industrial applications. The sensors are produced in CMOS technology and include a temperature-compensated Hall plate with active offset compensation, a comparator, and an open-drain output transistor. The active offset compensation leads to magnetic characteristics which are robust against mechanical stress effects. In addition, the magnetic characteristics are constant in the full supply voltage and temperature range. The comparator compares the actual magnetic flux through the Hall plate (Hall voltage) with the fixed reference values (switching points). Based on the reading, the output transistor is switched on or off.       

The HAL 102’s high temperature stability and constant switching points over a wide supply voltage and temperature range make it optimal for various industrial applications.
