Model 906 sensors are water resistant and suitable for industrial applications, including environments where dirt, dust, grease, or moisture are present. The 906 standard sensor has a threaded aluminium body, and is supplied with a mounting bracket and 10 ft of cable. The quadrature (bidirectional) option has two sensors and is designed for applications requiring both speed and direction information.
These speed sensors use magnet-sensing Hall Effect IC's to produce a digital pulse signal to interface with speed switches, tachometers, counters, signal conditioners, or PLC's. Hall Effect sensors provide true zero speed operation with square-wave output and immunity to electrical noise.
