High-Tech Sensors for Heavy-Duty Applications



Industry’s First Analog 3-axis, High-g MEMS Accelerometer


Analog Devices has introduced the industry’s first commercially available analog, 3-axis, high-g MEMS accelerometer. The ADXL377 measures acceleration of high-impact events resulting from shock and vibration, within the full-scale range of ±200 g with no signal saturation. This measurement range, combined with an analog output that continuously captures impact data, make the ADXL377 an ideal sensor for contact sports where the detection of concussive forces can reveal indictors of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), With a bandwidth of 1600 Hz, the ADXL377 is also ideal for use in industrial equipment where shock levels must be closely monitored. ADI’s new 3-axis accelerometer also eliminates the need for alignment and the placement of orthogonal sensors, which significantly simplifies design. The board space requirement is reduced by up to five times that of typical solutions requiring multiple, single-axis accelerometers ...

New High-Resistance Miniature Foil Strain Gages


MALVERN, Pa. — May 2, 2012 — Vishay Precision Group, Inc. announces the release of a new series of high-resistance miniature foil strain gages through its Micro-Measurements brand. Available in a wide array of configurations including linear, half-bridge, full-bridge, and shear patterns, these miniature strain gages are particularly advantageous in applications that can benefit from their small size and higher resistance. The new strain gages feature a modified-Karma alloy with gold-coated or copper-coated solder tabs, and an epoxy overcoat for grid encapsulation. Built using the same rigorous standards as traditional Micro-Measurements gages, the new line of strain gages is based upon an advanced manufacturing technology that provides high resistance in a small package (10,000 Ω is available in a 1 mm sq. grid area). This small grid area helps to increase transducer output in a number of applications such as pressure sensing. A tight tolerance of ±0.2 percent is typical on resistance values ranging from 1,000 Ω to 20,000 Ω. Self-temperature-compensation is standard and modulus compensation is available. Creep compensation is offered on all miniature strain gage patterns ...

Triangulation Sensor with High Ambient Light Suppression


The new iC-LO device is a triangulation sensor specifically designed as a system on chip for the assembly of diffuse reflective photoelectric sensors with switching outputs. Thanks to the high integration of the functions, which includes the photodiodes, LED driver, microcontroller interface, signal conditioning circuitry, and signal filter unit, the overall system is extremely small. Besides the iC-LO, all that is needed to create a triangulation measurement setup are a transmitting LED and a low-cost microcontroller ...

Low-cost Differential Pressure Sensor Features High Measurement Accuracy


Sensirion, the world's leading sensor manufacturer, has launched the SPD500 low-cost positive differential pressure sensor. This fully calibrated and temperature compensated sensor is suitable for measuring differential pressure in the range of 0 to 500 Pa and is able to detect even minute pressure differences (less than 10 Pa). With a zero-point accuracy of 0.2 Pa, the sensor offers both low cost and excellent specifications. Integration of the sensor element and signal conditioning circuitry on a tiny CMOS silicon chip enables noise-free and precise amplification and digitization of sensor signals. As a result, the differential pressure sensor achieves extremely high measurement accuracy and outstanding long-term stability. The underlying CMOSens® technology allows the microchips to be produced in large volume at competitive end-user prices with consistently high quality. With an accuracy of 4.5% of the measured value, zero-point stability and I²C digital output, the new differential pressure sensor is especially suitable for applications in the HVAC industry. Like all other sensors in the SPD600 series, the new sensor is available in two different versions. The SDP500 is designed to be screwed directly to a manifold with O-ring sealing, while the SDP510 is designed for tube connections ...
