NEW! Nanopower Magnetic Sensor Evaluation Kit
The ridiculous low power of NVE's ADL-Series nanopower magnetic sensors is shown with an analog meter driven by an amplifier with a gain of 1000, providing a 100 nanoamp scale.

The self-contained demonstrator runs on a three-volt coin cell, with each of the three ADL sensor power ranges—the continuous duty ADL921; and the ADL021 and ADL121, which are internally duty-cycled for power consumption in the nanowatts.

In addition to ridiculously low power, ADL-Series sensors are the most sensitive and smallest sensors in their class, with magnetic operate points as low as 20 Oersteds and parts that fit on the head of a pin.

Key ADL-Series sensor features are:
  • Sensitive (as low as 20 Oersted)
  • Ultralow power (as low as 72 nW)
  • Ultraminiature 1.1 mm package
ADL sensors and demonstrators are in stock for immediate delivery.

Non-Frightening Two-Wire Interfaces
Two-wire sensor interfaces can be frightening, but NVE parts make them easy.

With the sensor off, the two-wire interface circuit must draw a minimal residual current, typically about 1.5 mA. With the sensor on, the circuit has to provide enough current to drive a significant load such as a motor or solenoid.

This reference circuit uses an NVE DC001-10 regulator to wide operating latitude over the input voltage range:

The residual current is dominated by the regulator’s quiescent current, which is less than 1 mA and relatively constant over input voltage. A Zener diode can be used instead of a voltage regulator in many applications.
