New Liquid Level Sensor Technology Chosen By Major Supermarket Group


The UK's largest supermarket group has opted for the Optical Level Sensor to monitor liquid levels in its refrigeration packs. Invented and developed by Product Innovation, 500 units have been ordered and delivered with further orders expected in the near future and the company is now looking for exclusive distributors in the US. The unique and patented OLS (Optical Level Sensor), measures liquid level directly rather than calculating it from secondary effects as in capacitance and ultrasonic devices. It accurately measures the liquid level regardless of dielectric constant, conductivity or temperature ...

Ultra-Thin Absolute Pressure Transducer for Surface Air Flow Measurements


February 8, 2010, San Juan Capistrano, California, USA – Meggitt Sensing Systems, a division of Meggitt PLC has announced the debut of Endevco® model 8515C, a miniature, high-sensitivity piezoresistive pressure transducer, designed for surface air flow and other aerodynamic measurements requiring high output in a small, lightweight package. The ultra-low profile design of Endevco® model 8515C has an overall thickness of 0.030 inch (0.76mm) and diameter of 0.250 inch (6.3 mm). Units are available in ranges of 15 and 50 psia, with 200 mV full scale output, and frequency responses of 180 kHz and 320 kHz, respectively. The transducers offer stable performance over an temperature operating range of -65 to +250 °F (-54 to +121 °C), with combined non-linearity, non-repeatability and pressure hysteresis error of less than 0.50 % FSO. In addition, model 8515C is designed to survive 10,000 g shock and 10,000 g acceleration, with minimum 5X burst pressure, making it the best performing pressure transducer of its kind in the industry ...

Solid State Linear Accelerometers Provide Precision Single, Biaxial or Triaxial Measurement Capabilities



January 25, 2010 - Sherborne Sensors has introduced the A545 series, a range of single, biaxial and triaxial solid state linear accelerometers, designed to measure acceleration and deceleration within demanding environments, and within the same, compact package size. Available in ranges from ±2 to ±500g, A545 series accelerometers feature an advanced MEMS sensor, incorporating air damping. Unlike fluid-damped devices, air damping is essentially independent of temperature, which enables the transducer to reliably perform over a wide temperature range. Sensors are fully compensated for temperature effects on both sensitivity and zero, and incorporate positive mechanical stops. Housed within a robust, lightweight, (less than 40 gm), durable light alloy package with solder pin connectors, the A545 series confers excellent shock resistance, and provides reliable over-ranging protection ...

New MagnetoPot Brings Non-contact Position Measurement in Membrane-style Packaging


Towcester – UK – January 2010: The MagnetoPot is new non-contacting linear potentiometer based upon a fully sealed membrane strip and a simple magnet that together provide position feedback from 8 mm to 1200 mm in a low profile and robust design with exceptionally long life capability. Manufactured by USA based membrane sensor experts Spectra Symbol, and available exclusively in the UK from Variohm EuroSensor, the MagnetoPot is ideal for hydraulic and pneumatic position sensing and other medium precision position feedback applications such as liquid level monitoring. A rotary version is also available for compact, low profile angle sensing. The MagnetoPot is similar in concept to a traditional membrane type potentiometer but rather than use a contacting wiper to connect the collector to the resistive element, relies upon the interaction of a non-contacting external magnet and an encapsulated magnetic or ferromagnetic strip to determine the electrical output and hence relative position. The thin IP 65 membrane has a typical membrane thickness of less than 3.5 mm - allowing the position sensor to be discretely installed with either the magnet or the membrane strip attached to the moving component ...
