Magnetic fields are equal parts fun and useful. We've got compass sensors, hall-effect sensors, and reed switches to integrate with your next project.
  1. Magnetic contact switch (door sensor) ADA375 Adafruit in Australia - Express Delivery Australia Wide

    Magnetic contact switch (door sensor)

    SKU: ADA375
    This sensor is essentially a reed switch, encased in an ABS plastic shell. Normally the reed is 'open' (no connection between the two wires). The other half is a .. read more Learn More

  2. A3213 Hall Effect Sensor 014-A3213EUA-T

    A3213 Hall Effect Sensor

    SKU: 014-A3213EUA-T
    Unlike other Hall-effect switches, either a north or south pole of sufficient strength will turn the output on; in the absence of a magnetic field, the output is off. Learn More

  3. Reed Switch COM-08642 Sparkfun Australia - Express Delivery Australia Wide

    Reed Switch

    SKU: COM-08642
    This is a small device called a reed switch. When the device is exposed to a magnetic field, the two ferrous materials inside the switch pull together and the switch closes. When the magnetic field is removed, the reeds separate and the switch opens. This makes for a great non-contact switch. This switch can carry up to 1.2A. Learn More

  4. Triple Axis Magnetometer Breakout - MAG3110 SEN-12670 Sparkfun Australia - Express Delivery Australia Wide

    Triple Axis Magnetometer Breakout - MAG3110

    SKU: SEN-12670
    Freescale’s MAG3110 is a small, low-power, digital 3-axis magnetometer. The device can be used in conjunction with a 3-axis accelerometer to produce orientation independent accurate compass heading information. It features a standard I2C serial interface output and smart embedded functions. It’s also a tiny QFN package which isn’t very easy to play with so here is our easy to use breakout board. This board breaks out all of the pins for the MAG3110 to a standard 0.1" header and also supplies the necessary filtering capacitors so that you can easily use it in your next navigation project.

  5. Hall Effect Sensor - US1881 COM-09312 Sparkfun Australia - Express Delivery Australia Wide

    Hall Effect Sensor - US1881

    SKU: COM-09312
    The US1881 is an integrated Hall effect latched sensor. That’s nice but what does it do? Holding a magnet near the sensor will cause the output pin to toggle. This makes for a robust presence sensor. A reed sensor also works nicely, but can be limited by the glass encapsulation and size. A hall effect sensor is much smaller, but can handle less current than a reed switch. Learn More

    This is the Magnetic Door Switch Set, a small reed switch assembly specifically designed to alert you when doors, drawers, or any other aperture opens. These types of switches are primarily used in home security systems. One half of the assembly set on a window or door frame and the other attached to the window or door itself.
