Post what you have so far, software and schematic and we will have a look. Also say what you observe and what you hope to observe, along with the component part numbers you are using.


Thanks for the help everyone! Got the sensor working very well...went with the A1302 hall sensor and can use it to sense my magnet a good half foot away!


Good for you! Do you have a project in mind that will require a Hall effect sensor?

Personally I'm a fan of old fashioned reed switches, cheap and simple.......

If a reed switch gets permanently magnetised it jams closed - hall effect sensors have no moving parts, are smaller and less breakable.  Reed switches also affect the field they sense whereas hall devices don't.

Im using it for my biomedical project to locate a magnet inside the body for orthopedic purposes...works very well so far!
