  • Speed and Direction sensor is based on magnetic Hall's effect Technology.
  • GTS-DO is Dual Output Magnetic Proximity sensor such that channel A lags or leads Channel B if used along with a gear wheel.
  • The signal of the channel goes high with leading edge of tooth and goes low on trailing edge of the gear.
  • GTS-DO is used to detect the direction as well as speed using a gear wheel. Hence we can consider that GTS-DO along with Agear wheel can simply replace a Optical encoder.
  • The main USP of the Product is it is IP67 protected with Extremely High speed functional capability upto 15kHz and upto zero speed on lower end .

  • For sensor Best performance we recommend minimum target width of 2.5mm. However smaller dimension target may work but depends on the application and sensor precise mounting.
  • This sensor only detect ferrous / magnetic material.
  • Sensor performance also depends on the air gap between the sensor sensing surface and the target.
  • Sensor is available with inbuilt water sealed connector.
