This had me thinking about a recent thread on variable regen braking: Modifying a Hall Brake lever for Variable Regen Braking
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m already constructing a 2WD and this would be a good place to separate yet another signal cleanly. The choice is whether to do this as:
- 2-Channel Magnetic Reed Switch, or
- 2-Channel Hall Effect with (relative) linear feedback.

jateureka wrote:If the brakes worked with that controller before you removed and remounted the switch and magnet then one other possibility is that the brakes are not actually using reed switches but are using hall sensors as switches. Some hall sensor switches are polarity sensitive in that you have to mount the magnet with either N or S facing the switch to get the desired output.
