The use of plastic manifolds enables the three-dimensional configuratio...
STMicroelectronics Takes Pressure Sensors to New Heights
From 750m below ground to the top of Mount Everest, smart phones and other portable devices will soon be able to pinpoint their height variation relative to sea level to better than one meter, thanks to the most recent MEMS sensor from STMicroelectronics.
New Contactless Linear and Rotary Position Sensors Launched at Professional Motorsport World Expo 2010
Penny + Giles, designer and manufacturer of high reliability position sensors for the motorsport industry, will be launching a range of new contactless Hall-effect linear and rotary position sensors, at Professional Motorsport World Expo 2010.
Honeywell Extends Zephyr Airflow Sensor Product Line With Analog Version
Honeywell today announced the introduction of the Honeywell Zephyr Analog Airflow Sensors that provide an analog interface for reading airflow over the specified full scale flow span and temperature range. These new analog sensors join the Honeywell Zephyr Digital Airflow Sensors that were launched in April 2010. The analog version offers the same features and benefits as the digital version, and is designed for customers that are either replaci...
Digital sensor from OSRAM combines proximity and ambient light sensors in one compact unit
The SFH 7770 from OSRAM Opto Semiconductors combines the functions of a digital ambient light sensor with those of a digital proximity sensor. It determines the ambient brightness, detects the presence of an object nearby and can even tell whether the object is moving closer or moving further away. It means that applications in cell phones and smart phones, for example, can be controlled without touching the phone. Apps open like magic, and the b...
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.
