Honeywell's Hall-effect Magnetic Position Sensors Provide Enhanced Sensitivity In A Miniature Package
Honeywell has introduced its SS361RT and SS461R Bipolar Latch, Hall-Effect Magnetic Position Sensors, giving customers the opportunity to help reduce manufacturing costs. The SS361RT and SS461R sensors' enhanced sensitivity enables the use of less expensive magnets in some applications. The SS361RT sensor's very small footprint takes up less space on the printed circuit board, typically allowing for a reduction in costs. Additionally, the SS361RT...
STMicroelectronics Unveils Microcontroller-Based Sensing Capability
STMicroelectronics has announced the availability of its open-source capacitive touch sensing software library for its 8-bit STM8 MCU platform. Touch controls improve the look and feel of end products such as MP3 players, televisions, domestic appliances, or printers, compared to mechanical switches or membrane keypads. Using touch controls also lowers bill-of-materials costs while enhancing reliability because they have no moving parts. Typical ...
Radar sensor offers intelligent detection
Carlo Gavazzi has extended its range of devices for automated doors, lifts and escalators by introducing a family of compact radar sensors offering intelligent detection and simple, flexible installation. The RAD01 and RAD02 radar sensors utilise Doppler shift in a K-Band (24,125GHz) signal to detect motion towards or away from the device, and provide SPDT relay output which operates the door. Sensing is bidirectional in the case of the RAD01 or ...
Contactless rotary position sensor with dual outputs
Penny + Giles has announced the availability of a new low profile rotary position sensor with dual output channels. The SRH280DP, which incorporates a factory programmable Hall effect sensor, has two outputs that can be programmed independently. It provides reliable and accurate rotary position measurement in extreme environments and allows users to improve the safety and integrity of their control systems.
Honeywell Hall-effect Rotary Position Sensor Endures Harsh Conditions, Enhances Precision
Honeywell recently introduced 17 new RPN Series Hall-Effect Rotary Position Sensors that simplify customer use by providing the inputs, outputs and voltage ranges needed for nearly any control system.
