Honeywell announces new SS39ET subminiature Linear Hall Effect Sensor IC

The new Honeywell SS39ET Series' SOT-23 subminiature footprint takes up less space on the PC board, allowing more design flexibility and cost savings. The SS39ET Series are designed to monitor magnetic fields from a permanent magnet or an electromagnet. All packages can be supplied on tape for automated, lower-cost assembly. These devices respond to both North and South poles, and can be powered with voltages as low as 2.7 V.

HONEYWELL EXPANDS PORTFOLIO WITH NEW SS39ET SERIES LINEAR HALL-EFFECT MAGNETIC POSITION SENSOR IC



Low-cost, Versatile SOT-23 Subminiature Surface Mount Package Ideal for Compact Designs with Tight Space Requirements


MINNEAPOLIS, March 6, 2012 - Honeywell (NYSE:HON) is extending its Linear Hall-effect Sensor Integrated Circuits (IC) product line with the addition of the new SS39ET Series to its SS49E and SS59ET portfolio of low-cost Linear Hall-effect devices.

With the launch of the SS39ET Series, Honeywell's Linear Hall-effect product family now consists of three package styles with different lead configurations:

• SS39ET: subminiature SOT-23 surface mount package (tape and reel format)

• SS49E: leaded flat TO-92 package (bulk packaging, 1000 units per bag), SS49E-T2 (straight leads), and SS49E-T3 (formed leads) on tape in ammopack (fan-fold) format

• SS59ET: miniature SOT-89B surface-mount package (tape and reel format)

"With the launch of the new SS39ET Series, customers can choose the package style and size to meet their application needs," said Josh Edberg, senior global product marketing manager for Honeywell Sensing and Control. "Customers will appreciate the SS39ET Series' SOT-23 subminiature footprint that takes up less space on the PC board, allowing more design flexibility and cost savings in their application."

The SS39ET Series are designed to monitor magnetic fields from a permanent magnet or an electromagnet. All packages can be supplied on tape for automated, lower-cost assembly. These devices respond to both North and South poles, and can be powered with voltages as low as 2.7 V.

A wide temperature range of -40 °C to 100 °C [-40 °F to 212 °F] allows use in many environments, and the thermally balanced, integrated circuit provides stable operation over the full temperature range. Thin film resistors improve accuracy and provide a stable output. The energy-efficient, low current consumption of 6 mA at 5 Vdc and the 2.7 Vdc to 6.5 Vdc supply voltage range allow circuit design flexibility.

Potential industrial applications for the SS39ET Series include:

• Anti-tampering magnetic field sensing in smart remote utility meters
• Basic current sensing for motor load monitoring, detection
• Pump control in heavy-duty equipment and household appliances
• Simple linear or angular displacement sensing
• Handlebar/throttle position sensing in e-bikes and scooters
• Current sensing in appliances
• Speed adjustment trigger in tools and appliances
• Magnetic code reading in safes, security, and building access control systems.
Potential medical applications for the SS39ET Series include:
• Position sensing in infusion pumps

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
