Programmable Mems Shock And Vibration Sensors Simplify Industrial And Instrumentation System Monitoring

Programmable Mems Shock And Vibration Sensors Simplify Industrial And Instrumentation System Monitoring
Analog Devices is expanding its iSensor intelligent sensor product family with the introduction of two highly-integrated inertial sensors that greatly simplify the complex task of embedded shock and vibration sensing within harsh industrial environments. Based on Analog Devices' iMEMS inertial sensor cores, these fully autonomous system-ready devices are one-tenth the cost and 100 times smaller than previous less-integrated, brick-level sensor modules.

Sensors Provides Cost-Effective Alternative to Linear Encoders in Steel Rolling Mills

Sensors Provides Cost-Effective Alternative to Linear Encoders in Steel Rolling Mills
MTS Systems Corp., Sensors Division's Temposonics linear-position sensors are now available with an improved linearity correction option, which makes them an attractive alternative to the magnetic linear encoders currently used in a number of rolling mills. MTS' magnetostrictive linear-position sensors are much more robust and cost-effective than incremental linear encoders and, with the improved linearity correction option, are able to offer the same high degree of accuracy.

Atmel Targets Mobile Devices with Capacitive Touch Button Controller

Atmel Targets Mobile Devices with Capacitive Touch Button Controller
Atmel has announced a low cost touch sensor IC, which brings capacitive user interfaces to price-sensitive consumer and mobile devices. This AT42QT1040 device is available in a 3mm x 3mm VQFN 20 pin package, making it ideal for use in mobile phones and other handheld devices where PCB space is at a premium. In low power mode the AT42QT1040 draws only 31uA from a 1.8 VDC supply, allowing capacitive sensing to be added with minimal impact on battery lifetime.

OPTEK Enhances Family of Fluid Sensors with Automatic Calibration Circuitry

OPTEK Enhances Family of Fluid Sensors with Automatic Calibration Circuitry
Providing design engineers with a simplified means of detecting the presence of fluid in transparent tubing, TT electronics OPTEK Technology has expanded its family of fluid sensors to include automatic calibration circuitry and a preset trip level feature. Designated the OCB350 Series, the fluid sensor with self-calibration circuitry requires only an optical device and power supply for operation. Like the original OPB350 Series sensors, these devices use an LED/phototransistor to sense the change in refractive properties between full and empty tubing as it passes through the sensor housing, creating multiple output states such as “fluid present,” “no fluid present,” and “no tube present.”

Honeywell's Hall-effect Magnetic Position Sensors Provide Enhanced Sensitivity In A Miniature Package

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 sensor is supplied on tape and reel, allowing for automated, high-volume, lower-cost pick-and-place assembly.

STMicroelectronics Unveils Microcontroller-Based Sensing Capability

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 controls include single or multiple buttons, slider controls, or rotary touch sensors, and colored decals or screen-printed graphics can be applied to show their positions on the control panel.
