That’s the Hall Effect Sensor’s purpose; it’s what makes your Litter-Robot so intelligent. These sensors are designed to react to any magnetic field. When the globe rotates, the magnets inside the globe will trigger the hall effect sensor, allowing the Litter-Robot to know the exact position of the globe.

What does cat sensor fault mean on Litter-Robot?
Sometimes after adding litter or replacing litter in the globe, the total weight of the globe becomes high enough that during the rotation or even while stationary (without cat inside) the cat sensor is triggered. If the Cat Sensor is triggered continuously for more than 2 minutes then the red light starts to blink.
Why does my Litter-Robot keep pausing?
Flashing slowly (about once per second) means the Litter-Robot clean cycle was interrupted. Your cat may have tried to enter the unit as it was cycling, and was detected by the built-in cat sensor; this caused the unit to pause its cycling. It will resume cycling 15 seconds after the cat leaves the globe.
What is a cat sensor?
