Hall effect sensors

Recommended Posts


I'm building a flight yoke and have fitted it with potentiometers. I am however considering swapping them for hall sensors as in the past I've  found potentiometers dont last last long before they begin to spike. I have used steel in the construction that is in close proximity, about 30mm away from where the magnets and hall sensors will be located. Will this interfere with the magnetic field or in any way affect their operation?
