Hall effect magnetic sensor module(HCSENS0021)

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: OUT

Code: Select all

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.

Hi, I have just receive one of these from you, the LED was on constantly and running the demo sketch it was showing the !MAGNETIC FIELD DETECTED! message when there is no magnet near it.

It seems the connection details are not clear as the pin with the square pad and the S next to it is Pin 3 and not Pin 1 as expected (square pad normally indicates Pin 1), wired this way it works correctly with the LED coming on when a magnet is near the sensor.

Thanks for pointing this out. I've added a diagram to the first post which hopefully should clear up any confusion.
