Hi guys, i just finished my arduino homing sensor with stepper motor using the guides on youtube. When I was prototyping everything was fine until I tried running my hall effect sensor 210 inches each wire for ground wire, 5v, and the signal.
My hall effect sensor would always input 0 which is low on my arduino even though the magnet still doesn’t come in close proximity with the sensor, while using the long 210 inches wire.
The fix I did was just shorten the wire to 36 inches.
Anyone know whats the cause of this? Or is there any way I can make it work with the 210 inches wire. I even put a dedicated 5v 4A power supply for the sensor and it didn’t even work. I thought that with a stronger power supply the sensor can send signals over long distances but it failed, any advice I appreciate it very much, I am new in arduino thank you!
