Sensor ICs

Allegro MicroSystems (Worcester, MA) offers two new current sensor ICs for AC or DC current sensing. Both the ACS724KMA (5 V) and the ACS725KMA (3.3 V) are set in a high-isolation SOIC16 wide-body surface mount package that provides reinforced isolation. The differential sensing technology protects against interfering common-mode magnetic fields from adjacent current traces or motors. Typical applications include motor control, load detection and management, switched-mode power supplies, and overcurrent fault protection.

Touchless Variable Gap Sensor

PIHER Sensors and Controls S.A. (Brighton MI), a Meggitt company, has introduced a two-piece magnetic Hall effect variable gap sensor that maintains stable electrical output and specified linearity on mobile shafts, despite radial and axial movement. A circular arc magnet is attached to rotating shafts or assemblies, such as boom loaders, skid steers, buckets, and hitch arms; the electronics module is attached to the chassis.

Sensor Kits

The UFS (Universal Fluid Sensor) line of sensor kits from Pillar Point Electronics (Sarasota, FL) uses an infrared (IR) emitter and microprocessor to detect the presence of air in tanks or lines containing non-particulate bearing liquids, such as fuel, water, and hydraulic fluid. The UFS-AN is a modified AN912-2D bushing. Designed for in-tank applications, a clear, cylindrical cast acrylic prism is potted into the fitting in contact with the fuel or other non-particulate bearing liquid. Custom versions of the product can be made for specific applications. For Free Info Visit http://info.hotims.com/61062-152
