Cost effective material detection solution for industrial applications

Cost effective material detection solution for industrial applications
Renesas has introduced its Material Detection Solution, which can detect materials or liquids easily and cost effectively without sensors by connecting electrodes using Renesas' RX130 capacitive touch-key MCUs. Replacing the sensors with this electrode approach contributes to lower BOM costs while enabling detection at multiple points using a single chip. This allows industrial equipment, OA equipment, and home appliance manufacturers to explore detection systems for cost-constrained applications.
