2Dex™ Plug-and-Play Hall Sensors

2Dex™ Plug-and-Play Hall Sensors

2Dex™ Plug-and-Play Hall Sensor Features

  • Convenient quick connector simplifies installation
  • Selectable teslameter cable length
  • Integrated thermistor for temperature compensation
  • Sensor calibration data stored on the connector
  • Small active area
  • Single or 3-axis configurations
  • Wide operating temperature range

Multiple package types

Due to the directional nature of magnetic fields, the positioning and orientation of the sensor are critical for accurate measurements. 2Dex sensors are offered in a range of package types to simplify the process of mounting a sensor in just the right location

Simplify experimental setup with 2Dex™ plug-and-play sensors

Use a 2Dex Hall sensor without having to build your own measurement circuit or apparatus. Lake Shore plug-and-play 2Dex sensors connect directly to the F71/F41 teslameters. This gives you the measurement simplicity and performance of a teslameter/probe combination with the installation flexibility of a Hall sensor.

These sensors include several features that significantly improve their accuracy and ease-of-use:

  • The sensor is calibrated for maximum accuracy, with the calibration data stored on the sensor connector
  • Perform automated temperature compensation thanks to the integrated temperature sensor
  • Easily position the sensor by detaching the teslameter cable using the convenient inline quick connector
  • Optimize teslameter placement with various teslameter cable lengths

Inline connector

Quickly disconnect the sensor from the larger teslameter cable to more easily route cables and mount the sensor.2Dex plug-and-play Hall sensor to teslameter cabling diagram

Easy extensions

In situations where a slightly longer sensor lead is required before transitioning to the thicker teslameter cable, extension cables can be placed inline without the need to cut or solder wires.

Copper wire cable extension

Single-axis sensors can be extended to 75 cm with just one extension cable. Two extension cables extend the sensor wiring to 75 cm for 3-axis sensors, with one extension supporting the x-axis and thermistor, and the second extension covering the y-axis and z-axis.

Choose standard copper wire to match the rest of the circuit, or phosphor bronze wire to minimize heat leak in cryogenic system environments.

Ongoing service

To maintain optimum performance of these sensors, recalibration services are available for all plug-and-play 2Dex sensors. Choose part numbers ending in CERT for recalibration of a sensor and an update to the sensor EEPROM to achieve specified accuracy. Part numbers ending in DATA include calibration data as well.

For US customers who need a quick turnaround, our expedited recalibration service allows you to skip the queue and minimize your downtime.
