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.
