Fully Integrated DC/DC Converter for Intelligent Sensor Systems


From just one chip and a variable input voltage of 4 V to 36 V iC-DC generates two stabilized output voltages that can be adjusted between 1.5 V and 5.5 V for the compact voltage supply of industrial sensors and small subsystems. The combination of switching converter plus two back-end linear regulators minimizes the amount of space required for the power pack and achieves a good residual ripple of typically 10 mVpp – ideal for the supply of precision analog circuits ...

Board Mount Pressure Sensors Offer the Flexibility of Self-Calibration, Industry-Leading Stability, Accuracy and Repeatability


The TruStability® NSC Series offers a ratiometric analog output for reading pressure over the specified full scale pressure span and temperature range. Because they are uncompensated and unamplified, they offer infinite resolution on the pressure signal. The frequency response is limited only by the end user’s system. Ranging from 1 psi to 150 psi (60 mbar to 10 bar), these sensors will operate as specified from -40 °C to 85 °C [-40 °F to 185 °F]. They are available in absolute, differential, and gage types ...

Sensor Signal Conditioner IC for Automotive, Industrial Automation and White Goods Applications


ZMD AG has introduced the ZSSC3008 sensor signal conditioning integrated circuit (IC). The ZSSC3008 is a cost-effective solution for resistive bridge sensor systems that require second-order linearity correction for a wide range of sensors. "Customers using the ZSSC3008 benefit from its non-linear compensation feature for improved accuracy" says Steve Ramdin, ZMDI product manager. "This compensation feature, for example, makes it possible to use less expensive transducers, providing customers in industrial, medical and automotive markets with solutions that are high performance and cost effective." The ZSSC3008 is optimized for those applications with sensors that do not require temperature compensation because they have an intrinsically low temperature coefficient (TC) ...

User-Friendly, Cost-Effective CA-6 Online Analyzer for Phosphate Measurement


The easy-to-use and economical CA-6 Online Analyzer from Electro-Chemical Devices uses colorimetric analyses to accurately and reliably measure phosphate and total phosphate levels. The CA-6 Analyzer is available in models measuring phosphate at 0-5.0 mg/L, 0-50.0 mg/L or 0-200 mg/L and total phosphate at 0-2.0 mg/L, 0-20.0 mg/L or 0-100 mg/L. Phosphate and total phosphate levels are important indicators of water quality. Sources of phosphates include sewage, industrial waste and fertilizers. Excessive phosphates can lead to extensive algae growth called “blooms” which can have serious ecological consequences ...
