WCP Hall Effect

The hall effect board makes it easy to limit and home robot mechanisms, and can be used in place of any mechanical switch. The hall effect board detects when a magnet is near it, and switches on or off. The digital hall effect sensor is not sensitive to vibration or shock like mechanical switches, and won’t give false readings during robot movement. The board comes complete for easy FRC use, with two leds to give users a quick understanding of how their robot is functioning. The boards have #4 holes for mounting using #4 screws or .125" rivets.

A neodymium magnet is available for purchase and comes with a rivet hole in the center. This can easily be attached to almost robot mechanism.
