New Digital Differential Pressure Sensors with Low Power Consumption


Sensirion recently launched new differential pressure sensors in the SDP600 series. The new SDP6x6 sensor line features especially low energy consumption, making it suitable for long-term battery operation. The SDP606 and SDP616 sensors are designed to enter sleep mode after performing each measurement. They wake up when a “measure” command is received and enter sleep mode again af-ter completing the measurement. The operation currents of a standard SDP600 sensor can be high as 6 mA, but the new SDP6x6 sensor is optimized for operat-ing currents no greater than 400 μA. There is virtually no current drain (<1 μA) in sleep mode ...

Photoelectric Sensors based on new SmartReflect Technology


Baumer introduces photoelectric sensors with the new SmartReflect technology for absolutely reliable object detection. These light barriers recognize objects of any kind and do not require a separate reflector or receiver. They increase process reliability while reducing operating costs. SmartReflect light barriers offer the safest and most convenient type of object detection due to the barrier principle. Contrary to diffuse or through beam sensors, the light beam is created between the sensor and a machine part when using the SmartReflect light barriers. Separate reflectors or receivers are not necessary. For a successful detection color and material of background and objects do not matter ...

Fast, Universal 12-bit Encoder IC for BLDC Motor Control


iC-MH8 is a large-scale integrated systems solution for magnetic sensor applications in fast motor control units. Combined with a diametrically magnetized permanent magnet, the tiny device (QFN28 5x5 package) can be used to create a robust, universal encoder for motor commutation and positioning. The chip includes a Hall sensor array with signal amplification control, two interpolators for incremental (ABZ, 12-bit) and commutation (UVW) signals, differential sine/cosine outputs (1 Vpp to 100 Ω), integrated RS422 line drivers, and a serial SSI/BiSS interface ...

CMMs with Nanometer Uncertainty


TriNano is a new nano/micro CMM to measure objects with sub-millimeter features in three dimensions and with nanometer uncertainty. Current micro CMMs comply with the Abbe principle in 2D or even in 3D, which is a preferred method to reach 3D nanometer uncertainty. Most of these CMMs are the result of academic research, in which the challenge is to achieve the lowest uncertainty over a large measurement range. This resulted in technologically advanced, but expensive systems ...

Vehicle Traffic Monitoring Platform Offering Bluetooth Sensors Communicating over ZigBee


Libelium, a technology leader in wireless sensor networks, announces the launch of the new Vehicle Traffic Monitoring Platform as part of its Smart Cities solution. The platform is capable of sensing the flow of Bluetooth devices in a given street, roadway or passageway while differentiating hands-free car kits from pedestrian phones. Sensor data is then transferred by a multi-hop ZigBee radio, via an internet gateway, to a server. The traffic measurements can then be analysed to address congestion of either vehicle or pedestrian traffic ...
