Inductive path sensors come in miniature format
The Inelta ILAT Series Miniature LVDT Sensors provide precision measurements of position and path in the range of single-digit millimeters. The sensors of this series are available in Models ILAT 2, ILAT4 and ILAT10 for the exact measurements of ±1 mm, ±2 mm or ±5 mm traveling distances. Owing to their tiny dimensions with a housing length of 79 mm and a diameter of only 8 mm at a weight of 30 g (including cable), the sensors...
Hoffmann + Krippner announces polymer strain gague printed onto a PCB
Hoffmann + Krippner, Inc. has announced that their new P-DMS Polymer Strain Gauge is now shipping. This compact and cost-effective solution for measuring pressure is based on Hoffmann + Krippner’s industry leading and patented sensor paste technology printed onto a PCB board.
Everything you need to know about membrane keyboards
Hoffmann + Krippner is proud to announce that its whitepaper about the History and facts about Membrane Keyboard Technology is now. Invented over 30 years ago, membrane keyboards and switches were at first ridiculed as a low-cost but unreliable input technology. However, after decades of improvements, the membrane switch has now been established as an effective solution for many different technical applications.
Displacement & position sensors suit confined spaces
Utilising differential sensing technology, the extremely slim, inductive displacement Inelta IZAL series sensors from Hoffmann + Krippner ensure precise path length measurements in applications with highly confined spaces. Although the 4mm diameter housing of these LVDT sensors are barely larger than a matchstick, their interior provides a complete and powerful differential transformer measuring system with a core and coils.
Achieve precise valve position in hydraulic applications
In cooperation with the German manufacturer INELTA, Hoffmann + Krippner now offers a family of robust and customer-specific hydraulic valve position sensing solutions used in a wide range of industries such as oil & gas, power generation or wherever a precise valve position in hydraulic applications is required.
How to choose the right potentiometer sensor
Hoffmann + Krippner has announced a new whitepaper: How to choose the right potentiometer for reliable sensing, to help design engineers understand how membrane potentiometer sensors work and how to pick the right type of membrane potentiometer for their project.
Sensor solutions target IoT & M2M applications
At the Sensors Expo, Hoffmann + Krippner demonstrated how their unique SensoInk and Sensofoil intelligent sensing technologies can be used for IoT applications such as process automation, position tracking and real time supply chain support.
Smart steering wheel drives you to safety
Sensing technology, which can be used to measure both position and pressure, can be used to add an extra level of safety in cars. SensoFoil, from Hoffmann + Krippner, can be integrated into steering wheels to allow the steering wheel to sense the pressure and position of the driver’s hands.
Intelligent sensing: the bread & butter of your IoT kitchen
At Sensors Expo, Hoffmann-Krippner will demonstrate how its SensoInk and SensoFoil intelligent sensing technologies can be used for IoT applications such as process automation, position tracking and real time supply chain support. SensoInk is a reliable, accurate analogue sensing solution based on printed polymer pastes, with low power requirements, operating at 5V.
Membrane potentiometers replace linear & rotary position sensors
Hoffmann + Krippner's whitepaper, The Membrane Potentiometer - A Competitive Alternative to Traditional Linear and Rotary Position Sensors, introduces the advantages and disadvantages of the membrane potentiometer’s special design and also outlines its possible applications including industrial controls, robotic systems, forklifts, doors, gates and even gaming.
