MAGNASPHERE is also a superior replacement for Hall Effect switches. (1) Does not require a third wire as a power source. (2) Does not drain battery supply during stand-by. (3) Operates on similar magnetic field strengths. (4) Does not require RFI/EMI protective filter. (5) Does not sense only one magnetic polarity. (6) Uses similar PCB “real estate” area. (7) Does not require shielded wire harness. (8) Robust to shock forces and impact.
