2SS52M Series position sensors have magnetoresistive material integrated on silicon and encapsulated in a plastic package. The integrated circuit provides a digital output in response to very low magnetic fields. Though this signal is identical to our digital Hall effect sensors, it can be achieved by magnetoresistive sensors at much greater sensor-to-magnet distances. OPERATING MODE 2SS52M sensors are operated by magnetic fields (North or South pole) parallel to the magnetoresistive element.
NOTE: Due to the inherent high sensitivity of 2SS52M sensors, stray magnetic fields which are parallel to the IC may affect operation.
