Motion control systems in vehicles require sensing that Hall sensors frequently provide. In some instances, sensing all three directions can improve and simplify the systems design. For these applications, austriamicrosystems introduced the AS5410 linear position sensor based on a 3D Hall platform. The sensor measures absolute position in automotive & industrial applications and provides a […]
Wireless is the must-have attribute for many of today’s consumer and industrial products. When you get two for one, so much the better. With Omega’s UWRH-2 wireless relative humidity transmitter users get both relative humidity and temperature measurements. The battery-powered unit transmits these readings as well as signal strength and battery status back to a […]
KEYENCE LK-G5000 Laser Displacement Sensor uses a newly developed RS-CMOS sensor to provide a sampling rate of 392 kHz – eight times faster than previous models. With ±0.02% Full Scale Linearity and 0.01µm repeatability, the sensor also has several additional capabilities. ABLE (Active Balanced Laser Control Engine) II balances laser emission time, laser power and […]
Touch sensing was demonstrated as an alternative to commonly used magnetic key sensing for authorizing access to a locked door in a previous Sensor Tips video. At the Hospitality Design Expo, at the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas, May 19-21, Jon Nevison demonstrates another option using RFID technology for authorizing access. The implication from […]
Touch sensing is finding many applications in the hospitality industry. In this first of three videos from the Hospitality Design Expo, touch sensing provides access through a backlit and simulated push-button display for a high-tech door.
