Many people take clean air as a given. However, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates (2014) that 4 million deaths globally are caused, at least in part, by air pollution. WHO also estimates (2016) that more than 90% of the world’s population lives in regions where air pollutant levels are higher than the WHO specified […]
Murata has introduced the IMG-CB Series of very accurate, highly stable CO2 sensors aimed at gas detection applications in the agricultural and building energy management system (BEMS) markets. Murata’s high-performance CO2 sensors are based on non-dispersive infrared sensor (NDIR) technology, which is now the most popular type of sensor technology used in CO2 measurement. Murata’s […]
In simple terms, an aphrometer is a manometer for measuring the pressure in champagne and sparkling wine bottles. When the aging process is completed, a disgorgement process removes the sediment and then an aphrometer is used to check the pressure in the bottle. Traditional cork and crown cap aphrometers make invasive measurements, typically in the […]
At CES 2017, Vincent Maxime, Product Manager from Enerbee describes how the use of airflow, temperature, humidity, CO2, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and pressure measurements with the Bluetooth connectivity of the Enerbee Smart Vent can provide a visual indication of the healthy or unhealthy status of various rooms in your home.
For sensors and many other products, smaller size, higher performance and/or longer life are all very desirable attributes. The Zirconia Miniature series oxygen sensors from SST Sensing Ltd achieves all of these. Offered in 12-mm diameter metal cans, the 5-pin sensor has a response time of as little as 4 seconds and covers an oxygen […]
At Sensors Expo 2016, John Geis from IDT explains an environmental sensor demo board with gas, temperature and ultraviolet sensing. For more information, click here.
Safety is one of the oldest concerns for the automotive industry and today’s cars and trucks implement a wide array of products and systems with many sensors to make vehicles safer. With 1.25 million road traffic deaths globally in 2013 according to the World Health Organization (WHO), there is still a huge challenge ahead. Surprisingly, […]
Even smaller, even stronger – this is how we might describe the new LRM-254 detector by InfraTec in just a few words. This miniaturized four channel detector in TO39 housing, with an aperture of only five millimeters, has just expanded the product range of the Dresden manufacturer, InfraTec. A mere glance at its appearance gives […]
