Rotation Direction Sensors

Rotation Direction Sensors

The wear-free, magnetic Hall sensors are used for rotation direction detection. The magnetic field which is produced by a permanent magnet is output as a signal according to the direction of rotation. The sensor is available with a connection cable (200 or 1,000 mm), with or without the M8 connector and as 5V or 36V variant.




  • High tolerance for misalignment
  • Max. air gap of 5.2 mm
  • Detection possible on front and longitudinal side
  • Sensor can be mounted in normal and supine position

Application examples

  • Direction of rotation detection in gearboxes
  • Direction of rotation detection in pole wheels
  • Gear sensor
