First Sensor launches LHD ULTRA Series
First Sensor has just brought out its new LHD ULTRA series, with all sensor types now available as samples – the first of which have already been delivered to customers. The high-precision two in one differential pressure sensors combine two sensing elements with different pressure ranges in a single housing.
Range of APDs optimised for LIDAR applications
The Series 9 from First Sensor offers a wide range of silicon avalanche photodiodes (APDs) with very high sensitivity in the near infrared (NIR) wavelength range, especially at 905nm. With its internal gain mechanism, large dynamic range and fast rise time the APDs are suitable for LIDAR systems for optical distance measurement and object recognition according to the time of flight method.
Sensor features digital signal processing with 15-bit resolution
Supplier of in the field sensor systems, First Sensor has announced its new piezoresistive low differential pressure sensors of the HTD series with measuring ranges from 1 mbar to 7 bar. The small and flat sensors with a footprint of only 8x13mm and a height of less than 7mm are suitable for space-saving manifold assemblies. The HTD differential pressure sensors feature digital signal processing with 15-bit resolution and an SPI interface as...
High-pressure sensors for electro-hydraulic steering systems
Awarded yet another contract to produce high-pressure sensors to support electro-hydraulic steering systems for a tier-1 US supplier, First Sensor recently has seen a significant growth in the market of sensor technology. The agreement covers the period of 2019–2024 and has an anticipated sales volume of €2.5m per year. The sensors will be installed in the pick-up vehicles made by an automotive group with global operations.
Better satellite communication is on its way
First Sensor Lewicki, part of the sensor specialist First Sensor, will be involved in the construction of one of the antennas for the German communication satellite Heinrich Hertz. A contract was signed on June 28th, 2017 by the DLR (German Aerospace Center), the contracting authority, and OHB System AG, thegeneral contractor, for the construction, testing and launch of the satellite. The multi-feed array antenna is related to the mission ob...
