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.
The UTD20 is a customized transducer that features a piezo-resistive silicon sensor for differential pressure applications. Outputs are voltage or UART digital. Measuring ranges from 0 to 1.5 bar–the measuring range and zero set point can be set. Accuracy is < ±0.5 % of the nominal range (total performance) and temperature range is from -40 to 85° C. Other features include: • Sensor preconfigured […]
Sensirion presents the advanced EK-P4 evaluation kit, which simplifies the evaluation of Sensirion’s differential pressure sensors even further. The kit combines all the features required for test measurement, including a flow element, so first measurements can be made cost-effectively and exceptionally quickly. The evaluation kit consists of a USB stick connected to a PCB on […]
If a specific pressure point is critical for safe system operation, a pressure switch can make monitoring pressure rather straightforward. For its electronic pressure switches, Suco Technologies now offers a programmable device called the PPD05. With the kit, the user can program the upper and lower set point, set the time delay between the set […]
by Randy Frank, Contributing Editor Many applications use pressure sensor measurements to calculate other key parameters such as flow, altitude, water column height, fluid depth, weight and more. In industrial applications, the most common use of pressure sensors to calculate another parameter is flow. In fluid flow applications, several factors determine the pressure drop that […]
A new low-pressure sensor called the DLHR Series works over lower pressure ranges of 0.5 to 60 in. H2O, an improvement over previous devices. Developed by All Sensors Corp., the DLHR Series is said to provide higher resolution than any other fully compensated low-pressure sensor currently available on the market. All error compensation takes place […]
Similar to many applications, when a pressure sensing switch is required, there can be several factors that determine if a particular switch meets all the required design criteria. The right pressure range, environmental ruggedness and long life could be initial requirements. In some instances, something as seemingly simple as the connector can be a knockout […]
At Sensors Expo 2016, Bernd Zimmerman, a field application engineer from Sensirion shows how the company’s SDP3x differential pressure sensor can be used to measure air flow in medical and other applications. An evaluation kit with the sensor, an interface and viewer software is available to simplify design-in. For more information, click here.
Based on its patented sensor paste technology printed onto a printed circuit board (PCB), Hoffmann + Krippner’s P-DMS polymer strain gage can address a variety of applications. Potential applications include inventory control for grocery store shelves and vending machines, inside shoes to measure pressure distribution as someone stands or walks, hazardous area applications where a […]
In a sample application product presence needs to be verified—objects in a blister pack—before the sealing process occurs. The product and blister pack material can be various colors and textures, and in some cases, they will be close to the same color as the product. A properly specified sensor will therefore have a small, focused […]
