Mass Flow Sensors Establish New Performance Standards


Posifa Microsystems, Inc., a leader in Advanced MEMS Sensor Development, has unveiled its new line of Low-flow Mass Air Flow Sensors. The PMF2000 family, which incorporates the latest MEMS and microelectronics innovations, eliminates the field failures associated with pressure shock, humidity and contamination that have for years plagued other manufacturers. By replacing the common “membrane-cavity” structure with a proprietary “solid-state” thermal isolation structure on the sensor die, Posifa’s sensors bring new levels of reliability to their customer’s applications. Additionally, the sensor die incorporates a pair of thermopiles surrounding a central heating element to detect changes in temperature gradient caused by mass flow, delivering ultra-high signal-to-noise, and unsurpassed repeatability ...

Sensors Expo & Conference Delivered new Sensors and Sensing Technologies


Over 4,000 engineers, scientists and industry professionals from around the world gathered at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL June 6-7, for the Sensors Expo & Conference, the leading event in North America focused exclusively on sensors and sensor-integrated systems. More than 150 exhibitors have demonstrated the newest technologies for sensors and sensors-related industries. "Following the inspirational opening-day keynote by SENSEable City Laboratory Associate Director Assaf Biderman, the content delivered in the conference sessions was compelling and very well attended, meanwhile there was such positive energy on the Expo floor," said Wendy Loew, Event Director. "The show floor was buzzing with excitement as attendees travelled to exhibitors' booths to see the latest in sensing advancements." ...

Ultrasonic Sensor features Amazing 1 mm Resolution


MaxBotix Inc., has released the HRLV-MaxSonar-EZ for sale to the public. The 1 mm resolution is so stable, that when measuring typical objects at a distance of one meter, the readings do not change by more than 1 mm. The best stability is available with the TTL and RS232 serial outputs with a typical error of  ± 0.1% at one meter. The pulse width has a stability of ± 0.2 %, while the rail to rail analog voltage output has a resolution of 5 mm. Most low cost ultrasonic rangefinders will report the range to smaller size targets as farther than the actual distance. In addition, they will also report the range to larger size targets as closer than the actual distance. The HRLV-MaxSonar-EZ sensor line correctly compensates for target size differences. This means that, if an object is large enough to be detected, the sensor will report the same distance regardless of target size ...

Industry’s Lowest Power MEMS Accelerometer


Analog Devices, Inc.has introduced the industry’s lowest power MEMS accelerometer. The ADXL362, 3-axis, digital MEMS accelerometer operates at 300 nA in motion sensing wake-up mode, consuming 60 percent less current than the closest competing sensor in the same mode. In full measurement mode, the ADXL362 uses 2 μA at a 100 Hz data rate, using 80 percent less power than competing MEMS accelerometers operating at the same frequency. This extremely low power consumption allows the ADXL362 to be used in applications that require battery life expectancy of months or years, and where battery replacement can be impractical or dangerous to the equipment or operator ...

New Low-pressure-drop Digital Flow Meter


Swiss sensor manufacturer Sensirion is launching the new digital SFM3000 mass flow meter for high-volume applications in medical devices, process automation and burner control. The flow channel is designed to achieve a very low pressure drop of less than 3 mbar through the sensor element. The flow meter bi-directionally measures the flow of air and other non-aggressive gases at rates up to 200 slm with high accuracy and very high speed. It outputs a 14-bit digital signal at a 2 kHz update rate. The signal is internally linearized and tempera-ture compensated. Furthermore, the new mass flow meter operates from a 5 Vdc supply voltage and features a digital 2-wire interface, mak-ing it easy to connect directly to a microcontroller ...

MEMS Sensors Help Reduce Fuel Consumption


Rising fuel prices and growing demand for clean technology are putting pressure on car manufacturers to develop new solutions that cut fuel consumption. The development of automatic stop-start systems, for example, is booming. Thanks to their excellent product properties, Murata’s MEMS sensors play a major role in these systems. Murata's high accuracy MEMS inclinometers provide a robust means of measuring vehicle inclination in a wide range of environmental conditions. The internal mechanical gas damping of Murata’s MEMS sensors prevents them from picking up external signals that can cause errors to the inclination measurement, and the HW realization of the system is easier. High accuracy versions of the SCA8X0 and SCA21X0 sensor series are widely used in automatic stop-start applications, as well as the gyro-combo sensor SCC1300 when integrated with the ESC system ...
