Grecians boss John Cornforth reluctantly released the Dutch keeper earlier in the month, and The Stags were alerted to his talents.
The 28-year-old is seen as a consistent figure, and Mansfield are hoping he can fill the void left by an injury to Kevin Pilkington.
Former Manchester United keeper Pilkington broke his wrist last week, and the club swooped for Van Heusden.
Stags manager Stuart Watkiss said "We did look at one or two younger keepers but, in our current position, we felt a bit of experience was required.
"Arjan had two excellent games against us last season and he has just had his contract paid up by Exeter so this suits both parties."
