DESCRIPTION The SS361CT/SS461C latches are small, sensitive and versatile digital Hall-effect devices that are operated by the magnetic field from a permanent magnet or an electromagnet. They are designed to respond to alternating North and South poles. These bipolar sensor ICs have enhanced sensitivity which often allows for the use of less expensive magnets. They offer reverse polarity protection and deliver a stable output over a -40 °C to 125 °C [-40 °F to 257 °F] temperature range. Operation from any dc supply voltage from 4 Vdc to 24 Vdc is acceptable. FEATURES AND BENEFITS Enhanced sensitivity: will operate from only 50 Gauss typical, at 25°C [77 °F], 80 G max. at -40 °C to 85 °C [-40 °F to 185 °F], and 95 Gauss over the full temperature range, allowing the use of smaller, potentially lower-cost magnets or wider air gaps Subminiature, SOT-23 surface mount package (SS361CT) supplied on tape and reel allows for a compact design with automated component placement, helping to reduce manufacturing costs Small, leaded, flat TO-92 package (SS461C) allows for a compact PCB layout Bipolar latching magnetics respond to alternating North and South poles, making these products well-suited for accurate speed sensing and RPM (revolutions per minute) measurement Wide operating voltage range of 4 Vdc to 24 Vdc makes these sensors useable in a wide range of applications Built-in reverse voltage capability enhances the protection of the sensor and the circuits with which it is used Robust design: will operate up to 125 °C [257 °F] RoHS-compliant materials meet Directive 2002/95/EC These Hall-effect devices are available in two package styles: the SS361CT in the miniature SOT-23 surface mount package and the SS461C in the leaded, flat TO-92-style package. The SS361CT’s small size requires less PCB (printed circuit board) space, allowing it to be used in smaller assemblies. The SS361CT is available on tape and reel (3000 units per reel). The SS461C is available in a bulk package (1000 units per bag).

Honeywell recommends allowing 10 µs for output voltage to stabilize after supply voltage has reached 5 V. NOTICE The magnetic field strength (Gauss) required to cause the switch to change state (operate and release) will be as specified in the magnetic characteristics. To test the switch against the specified magnetic characteristics, the switch must be placed in a uniform magnetic field. Table 2. SS361CT/SS461C Absolute Maximum Ratings1 Characteristic Min. Typ.

However, the electrical and mechanical characteristics are not guaranteed as the maximum limits (above recommended operating conditions) are approached, nor will the device necessarily operate at absolute maximum ratings.
