Hall based SOI floating switch - MLX92361

Product description

The MLX92361 is a revolutionary Hall switch providing better assembly yield and reliability in fluid level measurements. With Its isolated floating output, the MLX92361 only requires power to directly drive the load.

The MLX92361 is a monolithic sensor IC sensitive to normal or lateral magnetic field. It has two output pins, OUTA and OUTB, which are connected to an electrically isolated switch.

The MLX92361 can be pre-programmed to output direct or inverted signal from one of the two sensitive axes – X(Y) or Z. The signal available on the output pins is the result of a comparison between the applied magnetic field and the pre-programmed magnetic thresholds BOP and BRP for the selected sensitive axis.

The MLX92361 can be pre-programmed to act as magnetic latch or unipolar switch or omnipolar switch.

MLX92361 - MLX92362 - Melexis

Note that a series of ICs can be connected in a single module, and synchronized via the same 3-wire interface thanks to the built-in daisy-chain function.
