The PHR Crank Hall Effect sensor is designed for builders and tuners needing a more stable and/or reliable sensor for motor speed and sync. A lot of ECU's can use these sensors for getting a cleaner and more consistent reading. This leads to faster starts, fewer tigger faults, more accurate ignition timing as well as several other benefits.
The benefits of using Hall Effect Sensors over VR (Magnetic) sensors is a long list:
- Resistance to Electro Magnetic Interference (EMI)
- Very little or no filtering required
- No minimum engine speed to produce a minimum trigger voltage. Important with a slow cranking motor especially with low battery voltage
- Triggers precisely on trigger edge and not on trigger voltage threshold position in VR's waveform (which can vary with motor speed)
- Easy Cam and Crank Syncing
- Precise Ignition Timing
- No Ignition Timing Float
- Immune to Target Runout
- Rotational Alignment to target is not critical
- High Speed Operation (up to 15khz)
Some benefits specific to the PHR Cam and Crank Hall Effect Sensor Kit are:
- Direct bolt-on
- Brackets made from Billet Aluminum
- Uses DTM Connectors and Terminals
- Large Operating Temperature Range
- Works with all aftermarket ECU's.
- Uses Stock Trigger Wheel and Cam teeth
- Made in the USA
UPDATE: Confirmed to work on 36-2 crankshaft trigger wheel and 3 tooth camshaft triggers for VVT-i motors!
Using Haltech Engine Management. We do not have any settings for any other engine management systems, so please do not ask. As we get more confirmation of them working on other systems we will post them here. With confirmation of good triggering Haltech, it confirms that this sensor is capable of reading the 36-2 trigger wheel quite successfully. It should be able to work successfully on most other engine management systems without any problems so long as they can accept a hall effect sensor. Testing has been successful to 8000 rpm. We have not done testing above that.
