Hall Effect with analog and digital output – New Hall Sensor Module for Arduino - Black Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Straightforward operation - no instructions required. Can be used with or without Arduino. Digital output interfaces directly with TTL or CMOS logic circuits. Small footprint with optional bolt to anchor. No soldering required. Pins have standard .1" (2.54mm) spacing. Two LEDs onboard. One to indicate power, the other indicates the state of the switch.
The only minor negative for my application is that that the pins add significantly to the height of the circuit board. I would prefer that the pins had the 90 degree bend to come parallel to the board instead of perpendicular. But that's an easy fix.
I am using this item along with some of the magnets from DX to operate as non contact switches for a variety of projects.
Well worth the price. Better than building my own. Very easy to use. I want more of these.
