Differential Pressure Sensors for Flow Measurement in Bypass Configuration


The Swiss sensor manufacturer Sensirion recently added new differential pressure sensors to its proven SDP600 series. The SDP601 and SDP611 sensors are differential pressure sensors specifically calibrated for measuring mass flow in a bypass configuration. In a bypass configuration, an orifice or a linear flow restrictor is used to generate a differential pressure in a flow channel. The resulting pressure is measured over the orifice or the linear flow component. The difference be-tween the pressures before and after the orifice correlates to the volumetric flow in the channel, depending on the specific characteristics of the flow re-striction component. The mass flow can therefore be calculated from the measured pressure drop (differential pressure) over the orifice ...

6 Degrees of Freedom Inertial Measurement Unit, 6-D Motion Variant

Honeywell announced its Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), 6-D Motion Variant, 6DF Series, designed to provide motion, position, and navigational sensing from a durable single device over six degrees of freedom. The six degrees of freedom is achieved by using MEMS (microelectromechanical system) technology to sense translational movement in three perpendicular axes (surge, heave, sway) and rotational movement about three perpendicular axes (roll, pitch, yaw). Because the movement and rotation along the three axes are independent of each other, such motion is said to have "six degrees of freedom" ...
