Description

PACKAGE INCLUDES INLINE RESISTOR PILL FOR A 12v APPLICATION. This will be a 2.4K resistor with black and brown wires.

Red anodized aluminum hall effect crankshaft or camshaft position sensor. Also suitable for use as a vehicle speed sensor (VSS).  Threads are M12 and mounting nuts are included.  Runs off 5 to 24 volts, and gives a nice square wave so there’s no variable voltage issues. Has a 1 meter long, 3 wire pigtail. Here’s what the wires do:

Brown – Supply voltage; connect to either VREF for 5 volt operation or 12 volt switched power.

Black – Output signal. On an MS3Pro, this connects to the CKP+, CMP+, or digital frequency inputs. On a MegaSquirt, connects to pin 24. We just set our MegaSquirt up for the VR conditioner and it works great. V3.0 MicroSquirts can also do this, but older MicroSquirts will need to use the Hall effect input. Note that this sensor requires a pull up resistor. This tees into both the supply voltage and the output signal wire. Use a 1K resistor when powering it with 5 volts (not included) or a 2.4K resistor (included) when powering it with 12 volts.

Blue – Ground.

Be careful if you are switching to this from a previous version of our sensor. The wire colors do not match, and this version requires a pull up resistor.

    Hall Effect Crankshaft Position SensorI bought this item, it's not dirt cheap to me. But, I purchased it. Using it with ms2 extra. Had to do few steps, solder few wires to make it work. Instructions online available step by step. It was easy enough and the felling was rewarding that I did it. The sensor works beautifully, it does the job very nicely, so far I have no complains. Would say much sharper than the pickup sensor for sure. (Project: rotary engine Rx7) thanks diyautotune.

    The better solutionsRobert,from Italy,
    This is the better ,cheapiest solution to drive a Classic europea 4 cylinder engine.
    I install on Classic Opel,20xe,16 e .
    Have about 20 cars runs MS 2, and some of that runs micro,the quickest solutions.
    Thanks DIY,Good device,hope it test cheap!!!

    Well MadeA very clean installation - fit the v3.0 board perfectly. I won't go back to drilling and filing my own end plates.

    Huge Upgrade from MS1Very easy to swap out my MS1 processor for an MS2. Much faster and more functionality from 16x16 tables to stepper-style IAC to expanded trigger wheel options. Very happy.

Will I need to add a pullup to use this sensor?

  • Yes, you must add a voltage pullup; this sensor does not have a pullup built in.

How does this sensor differ from the previous threaded Hall effect sensor you sold?

  • This one is made by a different manufacturer. While the size is the same, this one has a much larger temperature range and does not require quite so close a sensor gap. It also requires a pull up resistor, as noted above.

The sensor came with a resistor – what are the specs on the resistor?

  • We now supply them with a 1K ohm, 1/4 watt resistor for use with 5 volt supply voltage.

    This sensor does not have red or white wires. The colors are coded as follows:

    Brown – Supply voltage; connect to either VREF for 5 volt operation or 12 volt switched power.

    Black – Output signal. On a MegaSquirt, connects to pin 24. We just set our MegaSquirt up for the VR conditioner and it works great. V3.0 MicroSquirts can also do this, but older MicroSquirts will need to use the Hall effect input. Note that this one requires a pull up resistor. This tees into both the supply voltage and the output signal wire. Use a 1K resistor (now included with the package) when powering it with 5 volts or a 2.4K resistor when powering it with 12 volts.

    Blue – Ground.

    Our supplier recommends using a 2.4K ohm, 1/4 watt resistor if using a 12 volt pull up.

    Set the V3.0 board up for the VR input circuit - it works great with Hall effect sensors too.
