New Speed Sensor from Cherry Targets Harsh Environments

Cherry's new GS102301 gear tooth speed sensor is perfect for any application where rugged, dependable speed sensing is required. This digital output Hall Effect sensor is self-adjusting over a wide range of magnetic flux densities, eliminating the need to optimize the sensor position within a small magnetic flux operating range. This feature also compensates for target run out. The single hall plate design is immune to alignment issues, allowing unlimited mounting positions.

This addition to Cherry's family of near-zero speed sensors operates in temperatures ranging from -40 degrees C to 140 degrees C and meets IEC60529 IP68 standards for water immersion. The sensor also contains circuitry that protects it from EMI and ESD and is reverse battery protected. The device requires a minimum input of 3mA to function properly.

Only 2.80" long, in a straight, threaded housing, this sensor will fit into a standard M20 x 1.5 o-ring port and withstands a maximum installation torque of 15 ft lbs. The Viton o-ring comes pre-installed. The durable Stanyl® plastic housing, with its resistance to environmental extremes, makes it suitable for a wide range of speed sensing requirements in transmission, engine and braking applications. The device has been tested for environmental exposure per SAE J1455 Section 4.4.1, which includes immersion in engine and transmission oils.

Manufactured with an open collector output, the GS102301 requires a customer supplied pull-up resistor. Operating voltage is 5 to 30VDC at the nominal operating range. The GS102301 mates with the Packard Metri-Pack 150.2 sealed female connector assembly 3F.
