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.

1 review for Hall Effect Threaded Body Crankshaft Position Sensor

  1. 3 out of 5

    Used on EG33 for Crank and CamI used two of these hall sensors for crank and cam position. The crank sensor seems to work great, but for the CAM this sensor is mounted on the head and is exposed to excessive heat. (The data sheet for this sensor shows only 105 Degrees C for maximum operating temperature.) The car works fine until the engine is hot and you shut the car off, once it heat soaks this sensor cannot get a good reading and the ECU cannot get sync to start the engine. Starts back up once it cools off, but eventually I have had this sensor fail. I don't this sensor is at fault, but hopefully this helps others with their choices for their car.

    I'm not sure that a hall sensor of this type exists that can tolerate the heat exposed directly on the head of an EG33.

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.
