A new family of Hall sensors is designed for contactless detection of positions and speed in automotive, industrial, and consumer applications. The HAL 2xy family comes by way of Micronas, a supplier of application- specific IC system solutions for consumer and automotive electronics.

In the automotive sector, the HAL 2xy is used for position detection of power windows, sliding roofs, hatchback, foot pedal, fan control, and other applications. Industrial application examples include flow measurement, end-position detection, and rotational speed measurement. In white goods, the Hal 2xy is well-suited for position detection tasks, such as those in washing machines and induction cookers.
