Automotive Application: Hall Effect Sensor in Multisim

NI Employee (retired)

Hello Circuit Designers,

The Multisim team works closely with the rest of the design segment at NI, at addressing how our tools can help engineers in different industries such as the Automotive segment.

Today, I want to share with you a circuit that simulates the operation of a Hall Effect Sensor (HES) widely used in Automotive and Industrial applications. In principle, a HES produces an output voltage (AC or DC) that is proportional to a magnetizing flux. This concept could be implemented in many applications such as:

- Current sensors and transducers

- Position and motion sensing

- Automotive ignition and fuel injection

- Wheel rotation sensing

Here is the design, try simulating it in Multisim and let me know how it fits your application.
