3D low power magnetic sensors

The sensor offers accurate three-dimensional sensing with extremely low power consumption in a small 6-pin package. Capa­ble of detecting the magnetic field in the x, y, and z-direction, the sensor is ideally suited for the measurement of:

For consumer and industrial markets

Thanks to its small package and low power consumption, the TLV493D-A1B6 can be used in new applications, replacing potentiometer and optical solutions. Featuring contactless position sensing and high temperature stability of the magnetic threshold, this system con­cept keeps getting smaller, more accurate and more robust.
