Post Hall effect magnetic sensor module(HCSENS0021)
Image

This sensor accepts a GND and +5V supply, and has a single digital output which goes low (GND) when a magnetic field is detected. An on board LED will also indicate the presence of a magnetic field.

Pinout
PIN 1: GND
PIN 2: +5V
PIN 3: DATA OUT

Code:
/* FILE:    ARD_Vibration_Sensor_Module_Example
   DATE:    05/06/13
   VERSION: 0.1

This is a simple example of how to use the Hobby Components hall effect sensor 
module.

The sensor accepts a GND and +5V supply, and has a single digital output
which goes low (GND) when a magnetic field is detected.

This example sketch will simply output a message to the UART when it
senses this pin going low.

SENSOR PINOUT:
PIN 1: GND
PIN 2: +5V
PIN 3: DATA OUT

Hi, Having trouble with this sensor - the red LED is lit but no change when magnet (strong) is near by. Please can you confirm pin out on the actual device as the pins are not numbered.. :roll: .:

PIN 1: GND -> G
PIN 2: +5V -> R
PIN 3: DATA OUT -> Y

Many thanks.

Yes that is correct, however I believe the LED should only illuminate when a magnetic field is placed near the sensor. If it is on all the time then something is wrong.
