Heated humidity sensor for weather observations

Heated humidity sensor for weather observations
Dedicated for use in radiosondes and weather balloons, E+E Elektronik has released the HMC03M humidity sensor. The sensor is characterised by a short response time even at low temperature. An integrated heating resistor ensures measuring performance under condensation and icing conditions. This makes the sensor suitable for weather observations in the upper atmosphere. The HMC03M combines on a silicon substrate a capacitive relative humidity (RH) sensor and a heating resistor.

Angular position sensors target industrial markets

Angular position sensors target industrial markets
Manufacturer of electromechanical switch and sensor solutions for the industrial market sector, ZF Switches & Sensors, can now offer designers a complete range of angular position sensors based on Hall Effect technology which responds to magnetic fields generated by a (rare-earth) magnet. The sensors provide a linear change in voltage output corresponding to the rotation of the actuator. The ANG series of sensors are non-contact angular position sensors which provide a linear change in the voltage output corresponding to an angular rotation of the input shaft.

Inertial modules support unmanned aerial vehicles

Inertial modules support unmanned aerial vehicles
MEMSIC has announced the addition of the VG380 to its portfolio of inertial modules. These new vertical gyros provide highly accurate pitch and roll (with respect to gravity), in both static and dynamic conditions, at a very attractive size and price points. The static and dynamic accuracy is specified at +/-0.2 and +/-1.0 degrees (respectively) over the -40C to +85C temperature range. The VG380 is offered in two package/interface options, VG380SA and VG380ZA.
