The OHB3040 consists of a ceramic Hall-effect sensor (OMH3040) and a rare earth magnet mounted in a low-cost plastic housing. The magnet produces optimum magnetic flux at the Hall-effect sensor location. The sensor has an open collector transistor output, which is activated when the slot is open. When the slot is blocked by a ferrous material that reduces the magnetic flux density at the Hall-effect sensor location, the open collector output transistor switches off. The device provides up to 25 mA of sink current. Output characteristics are constant at switching frequencies from DC to over 200 kHz. The OHB3040B has Hi-Reliability processing level B while the OHB3040S has Hi-Reliability processing level S.
