The Great Search: Analog Magnetic Proximity Sensor #TheGreatSearch #digikey @DigiKey @adafruit
(Video) This Great Search is by special request! Viewer 2231puppy has asked us to find them a part on DigiKey and we’re happy to oblige! They tweeted: “@adafruit If you haven’t already picked out a category for The Great Search tonight, I’d love to see one on analog hall effect sensors for detecting magnet proximity. Thanks!”
No problem, there are thousands of magnetic sensors available, with different outputs and configurations. Let’s go looking for one with analog/ratiometric output, wide power voltage range, and through-hole packaging for quick prototyping – We’ll show you how to find the perfect one on DigiKey tonight!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
