Sensors in Household Appliances (Sensors Applications Vol. 5) by G. Tschulena


Sensors in Household Appliances

Although sensors have been used in household appliances for decades, they have gone mostly unnoticed by the users. In recent times, however, the importance of sensors has grown significantly due to increasing automation and more use of microelectronics, both of which require more sensors. Parallel to this development, the capabilities of sensors are increasing and their prices are shrinking. These factors are the argument for presenting this new book. It begins with market data of the household appliance industry, followed by the description of the larger application areas for sensors and measurement systems in washing machines and for the washing process, followed by combustion processes in heating stations, and by small appliances like infrared ear thermometers. Selected types of sensors are explained, such as temperature sensors for the kitchen, Reed switches as magnetic sensors for limit detection, and gas sensors and their use, UV sensors, positions sensors and pressure sensors. The expected technical developments of the next decade are sketched and analyzed regarding an increased utilization of different sensors.
