Electronics sensor company overfunds with Crowdcude
Innovative electronics company, Nanusens, has closed a highly successful round of crowd funding via Crowdcube. £604,680 was raised in just 30 days from 750 investors. This was 300% overfunding as the target was £200,000. This brings the total raised via Crowdcube rounds to £1,805,950 or around €2m.
Cost effective innovations to be showcased at Sensor + Test
Global industrial technology company, Sensata Technologies, will be featuring its range of pressure sensors and switches for use in boiler, pump and HVAC applications at Sensor + Test from June 25th to 27th. Highlighted in the exhibit will be Sensata’s new 116CP Pressure Sensor, which features a patented design derived from automotive grade pressure sensing technology.
RGB-IR solution for automotive cabin monitoring systems
Developer of advanced digital imaging solutions, OmniVision Technologies, and Fullhan Microelectronics, a provider of chips and solutions for video surveillance products, have announced a joint solution for capturing and processing high quality colour (RGB) and infrared (IR) automotive interior images, day and night, with a single camera.
Ultrasonic sensor series offers flexibility and efficiency
A new series of ultrasonic sensor has been introduced by Pepperl+Fuchs with the UCC*-50GK series. Only two sensor versions are required for covering a wide range of applications. Intended for distance measurement, the UCC*-50GK uses ultrasonic pulses to measure the distance to the target and reports information through one of three sensor outputs. Versatile configuration options make the sensor incredibly adaptable.
Evaluation kit for environmental sensors with modular approach
It has been announced that Sensirion, the expert in environmental sensing, has relaunched the evaluation kit SEK-Environmental Sensing with a new modular approach. The SEK-Environmental Sensing allows engineers to evaluate sensors and develop innovative sensor applications even more quickly and easily.
Portfolio expansion with new high precision inclination sensor
The new F199 from Pepperl+Fuchs is optimised for high accuracy inclination measurement. Like other inclination sensors, the F199 provides measurement feedback of the angle tilt of machines or machine elements relative to gravitational force. The F199 precisely measures angles from 0-360° with less than 0.01° resolution and absolute accuracy of ±0.15° across the entire measuring range.
Modular angle encoder with circular scale variants
A new family of optical scanning angle encoders has been developed by HEIDENHAIN for demanding applications requiring constant speed control or high positional stability. The modular design of the ERP 1000 encoders includes numerous circular scale variants and HEIDENHAIN’s HSP 1.0 signal processing ASIC (application-specific integrated circuit), its first ever use in an angle rather than a linear encoder.
Embedded Vision Alliance awards image sensor as 'Product of the Year'
Smartphone cameras increasingly require 3D vision capabilities as differentiating factor. Hence, Infineon Technologies developed the REAL3 IRS2381C, a premier 3D imager sensor solution especially designed for the mobile device market. The Embedded Vision Alliance now awarded the 3D Time-of-Flight (ToF) single chip solution as 'Product of the Year' in the category 'Sensors'.
Miniaturised board-mount pressure sensors with ratiometric voltage
Due to their compact dimensions the miniaturised pressure sensors, which are available in multiple variants, can be used in various applications in confined spaces. They are suitable for the measurement of static and dynamic pressure in non-corrosive gases and even in liquids, if they are used for relative pressure measurements. Possible applications are industrial process control, medical instrumentation and HVAC applications.
Bandwidth vs. power tradeoffs in hall effect position sensors
Some applications, especially those that are battery-powered, require Hall sensors with low power consumption.
