Another great technology integrated in Grayhill’s encoder and joystick products is the Hall Effect technology.
The Hall effect sensor magnetically detects the position of another moving part such as the shaft in a joystick or encoder.
This relational position can be outputted from the device in a variety of formats, including I2C, open collector or push-pull output.
Hall effect technology has the advantage of working in low voltage applications and often features a sleep mode to conserve power.
