The AmbiMate sensor module MS4 series from TE Connectivity is in stock at Mouser Electronics. Incorporating four core sensors on a single printed circuit board (PCB) assembly, the modules enable easy integration in a variety of host products in building automation, lighting, and smart home applications.
AmbiMate sensor modules are pre-engineered and assembled, allowing manufacturers to devote valuable design resources to other important tasks.
The modules all include sensors for motion, light, temperature, and humidity, while optional additions include sensors for sound, CO2, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
They offer multiple attachment options to easily integrate the pre-assembled PCB into the host board, and they share a common seven position connection, allowing a single PCB footprint to accommodate every available sensor configuration.
The sensor modules are suitable for building automation applications where environmental data can inform product decisions.
For example, engineers can use one or more modules to capture VOC and CO2 concentrations and evaluate air quality.
With an integrated microphone the modules can augment motion detection by listening for sound events.
A network of modules can detect occupancy, humidity, temperature, and light levels, allowing building controllers to adjust indoor lighting, HVAC equipment, energy management, and other zonal environmental controls.
