New Stainless Steel OEM Pressure Sensors Offer High Accuracy Over a Wide Temperature Range and Digital Outputs

New Stainless Steel OEM Pressure Sensors Offer High Accuracy Over a Wide Temperature Range and Digital Outputs
Sensortechnics’ new SSI stainless steel OEM pressure sensors accurately measure gage or absolute pressures in ranges from 200 mbar up to 35 bar. These devices offer excellent stability and repeatability, achieving a Total Error Band (TEB) better than ±1.5 %FSS over a temperature range of -20…+85 °C. Sensortechnics’ SSI pressure sensors use precision digital signal conditioning and provide both analog 0.5…4.5 V output as well as digital I²C or alternatively SPI interfaces at the same time.

STMicroelectronics Miniaturizes Digital Temperature Sensors for Protection of Portable Products

STMicroelectronics Miniaturizes Digital Temperature Sensors for Protection of Portable Products
STMicroelectronics has announced a super-small and power-efficient temperature sensor allowing portable devices to benefit from features such as intelligent thermal protection. As today’s consumer lifestyles demand unprecedented performance and portability from products such as solid-state drives, notebook computers, eREADERS, smartphones, basestations and digital signage, hard-working electronics are packed into confined spaces and generate heat that can cause failure and poor reliability. ST’s new STTS751 Digital Temperature Sensor (DTS) is mounted on the circuit board to feedback accurate temperature data allowing the system to manage its temperature, for example, by activating a cooling fan or shutting down circuitry.

Imec and Holst Centre report gas sensor chip paving the way to autonomous e-nose

Imec and Holst Centre report gas sensor chip paving the way to autonomous e-nose
Imec and Holst Centre have developed very sensitive integrated sensing elements for gas detection. The polymer-coated microbridges in high-density arrays can detect ppm-level concentrations of vapors using on-chip integrated read-out techniques. The demonstrated technology is very suitable for miniaturization of electronic nose devices thanks to the low power consumption (

Deeter Group Introduces Complete Wireless Sensor System for Industrial Measuring and Control

Deeter Group Introduces Complete Wireless Sensor System for Industrial Measuring and Control
The Deeter Group announced the launch of its Wireless Sensor System for industrial measurement and control. At the centre of the system is the simple-to-use Base Station designed to receive data from remote wireless devices such as the Deeter Liquid Vertical Sensor (LVCS-RF). The base station converts remote sensor input signals into industry standard process outputs. The Base Station acts as the coordinator for an IEEE 802.15.4 wireless sensor network. It operates on one of 16 radio frequency channels available in the 2.4GHz ISM band. The high power transceiver can achieve a range of greater than 1km, subject to local environmental factors. The internationally recognised IEEE 802.15.4 protocol allows several wireless sensor networks to share the same wireless spectrum without interference.
