Pressure Transducers for Railway Applications


March 2013 - Pressure sensors specified for railway applications require a particularly focused approach in both development and manufacture. Applications range from monitoring brake servo control circuits through to air conditioning controls inside carriages. Common requirements across all applications are durability and robustness in design, higher and tighter specification requirements as well as the need for elevated levels of reliability. These transducers include advanced specifications such as EN 61373 and DIN EN60068-2-27 for shock and vibration, and EMC sensitivity protection to EN50155 and EN50121. Furthermore, fire grade protection to class UL94 and ingress protection ratings to IP69K are commonly required, along with dielectric strength to over 700 VDC for one minute. Using advanced FIT rate analysis, an MTBF life of over 480 years was determined for one particular application. The SML 16.0 series from Variohm EuroSystem's German manufacturing partner ADZ – Nagano has been designed for such requirements and application conditions. This pressure transmitter is suitable for working in ambient temperatures ranging between 50…105 °C, with a precision of <1% F.S. in the range between 40…85°C (in accordance with DIN 16086) ...

German Sensor and Measuring Industry: Stable and Optimistic Market Review


Berlin, 1 March 2013 - The AMA Association for Sensor and Measuring Technology (AMA) polled its members on the economic development in 2012. The German sensor and measuring industry can look back to an overall stable year compared to the previous years of economic turbulence. The annual revenues show a slight increase in turnover of one percent compared to the results of the year before. The overall outlook for the sensor and measuring industry seems to further brighten. Asked about expectations for the year 2013, the AMA members anticipate a growth in revenue of four percent plus. This confidence is reflected by the industry’s job market. In 2012 the member enterprises employed almost three percent more personnel and for the current year a further demand is expected. Short-time work in the sensor and measuring industry was not called for last year ...

ISSYS Inc. Awarded a Patent for Wireless, Implantable Hemodynamic Pressure Monitor (IHM) for Chronic Monitoring of Cardiovascular Diseases


Ypsilanti, Michigan, March 19, 2013 - Integrated Sensing Systems, Inc. (ISSYS) announced that the U.S Patent Office has granted a patent entitled "Method for Monitoring a Physiologic Parameter of Patients with Congestive Heart Failure" (US Patent No. 8,014,865). This patent covers miniature, wireless, batteryless, implantable hemodynamic sensors that are anchored within the heart for non-invasive monitoring of cardio physiological hemodynamic parameters, such as pressure, in order to provide advanced chronic patient management.


ISSYS' wireless, batteryless, sensor and anchor are delivered either via a catheter in an outpatient procedure or as an adjunct device during an already-establish procedure such as coronary artery bypass graft (CABG). The biocompatible anchor allows the miniature telemetric sensor to be stabilized within the heart and monitor left side of the heart (either left atrium or left ventricle). This is a very difficult task due to the stringent biocompatibility requirements of the left heart ...
