BEI Sensors introduces the Programmable Hall Device (PHD), an easy way
to take control of customizing the output of BEI Hall effect sensors.
This compact programming unit interfaces between a PC and BEI Hall effect
sensors, and provides users with the ability to field program output functions
that meet specific requirements. The PHD can be used for both analog and
PWM outputs. Additional features include the ability to set high and low
clipping points, program binary/switch output, and program multiple points
along the assembly movement trajectory for even greater output precision.
The PHD software that it included makes programming simple with a user-friendly
screen where output routines can be created, stored and recalled for later
use. The PHD software offers a real-time graphical representation of the
sensor output allowing verification of the sensors functionality
after programming. The system also gives users the ability to lock the
sensor to preventaccidental reprogramming. With the PHD, BEI Hall
effect position sensors can even be programmed directly in place using
the actual assembly movement as the sensor input. This allows users
to match the full range of the assembly precisely with the sensor output.
BEI Sensors can also provide users adaptations to the PHD system to fit
their exact application.
