World’s Smallest Capacitive Humidity Sensor from IST
Innovative Sensor Technology has added the World’s smallest capacitive humidity sensor to its line of thin-film sensors. Measuring just 1.85 mm x 1.85 mm, the P14 202 is capable of measuring from 0 to 100% relative humidity in a temperature range of -50°C to +150°C. The assembly of the sensor is fully automated, and the contacts are designed for soldering and bonding.
New Acceleration Sensor with USB
The new JoyWarrior24F14 by Code Mercenaries sets a new price/performance benchmark for USB based acceleration sensors. At just Euro 19 per unit (at 100) JW24F14-MOD offers resolutions down to 125 µg. JoyWarrior24F14 modules are based on a MEMS sensor and measure with 14 bit resolution in the ranges ±1g, ±1.5g, ±2g, ±3g, ±4g, ±8g, or ±16g, delivering 125 results per second. Connection via USB allows easy use with any computer model. Since ...
SMART Position Sensor, 225 mm Linear Configuration
Honeywell today introduced the SMART Position Sensor 225 mm Linear Configuration, its second non-contacting linear position device that joins the SMART Position Sensor 75 mm Linear Configuration introduced in December 2009. The 225 mm SMART Position Sensor senses the position of a magnet relative to a sensor from 0 mm to 225 mm [0 in to 8.86 in].
New: CP-2U(T)N low power and compact ±45° Angle Sensor
PEWATRON offers the new Midori low power sensor, which is ideally suited for battery operated devices. The magnetoresistive technology allows for a superb low current consumption of 0.6 mA typical at 9 V. Thus consuming more than 20 times less current than a comparable Hall-effect based device.
New transducers from LEM measure traction energy with unprecedented accuracy
New standards in Rail Traction are preparing the sector for more widespread trans-European, cross-border train operation, imposing stringent requirements in energy monitoring. Anticipating these new demands, transducer specialist LEM has created a measurement technology that enables unprecedented levels of accuracy in on-board monitoring of train power consumption.
Highly accurate, 8-channel temperature sensor reduces board area
Maxim introduced the MAX6581, a ±1 degree Celsius accurate, 8-channel temperature sensor. It has seven remote sensing channels to monitor ASICs, FPGAs, CPUs, and boards with multiple hot spots. Each remote channel includes series resistance cancellation and beta compensation for best accuracy. Because the MAX6581 contains eight channels of temperature sensing, but requires only a single I2C address for these eight channels, it reduces board area...
High-Speed Digitizer for Distributed Temperature Sensing
Temperature detection is vital for its added security value in applications such as subway/metro tunnels, mining, warehouse, and oil & gas facilities. The traditional method of measure temperature is to deploy measurement devices at specific locations. This is not practical when the area to measure spans several miles. Distributed temperature sensing (DTS) is a technology based on optical time domain reflectometer (OTDR) technologies. DTS systems...
New piezoresistive pressure sensors from PEWATRON
The PHPSD series are piezoresistive pressure sensors with a measuring range of 0...10 mbar up to 7 bar. These sensors are available with or without temperature compensation and amplifi er, as well as with a choice of either digital or analogue output signal in each case.
Penny + Giles’ extends output options on rugged single/dual output rotary position sensors
Penny + Giles, a business group of Curtiss-Wright Controls and a designer and manufacturer of position sensors, solenoids, and manual controllers has expanded the output options of the company’s rugged SRH501P and SRH502P contactless rotary position sensors. The newly announced analog voltage output options make these sensors ideal for use in Factory Automated systems and Process Control machinery.
