Then just call it a crank position sensor tester.

Oh and y'all too

why would you call it a crank position sensor tester, when you also use it to test Cam position sensors, wheel speed sensors, output shaft speed sensors, etc.

I install on occasion Hall effect systems on ambulances. Great for measuring accurate amps without large bricks bolted in near the batteries and also senses and displays voltage. Hall effect parts are easy to install and weigh a lot less, and attach to existing battery cables. Inpower llc makes the system I usually install.

As with many things in physics, it's name comes from the guy that discovered it:
It was discovered by Edwin Hall in 1879
