Three-Axis Magnetic Sensor

MEMSIC (Andover, MA) offers the MMC3630KJ magnetometer for portable devices. The magnetometer includes an integrated monolithic 3-axis AMR sensor and a signal conditioning ASIC. The BGA package measures 1.2 × 1.2 × 0.5 mm, and the MMC3630KJ reaches ±30G range. With 600Hz magnetic sensing bandwidth, the series includes a self-degaussing feature, which eliminates the output drift due to temperature change and residual magnetics. The products also include an interruption feature, used for motion detection and data acquisition notifications, to lower system-level power consumption.

Pressure Sensors

All Sensors Corp. (Morgan Hill, CA) has announced the SPM 401 Series of stainless-steel, media-isolated pressure sensors. The pressure sensor is compatible with 316L stainless steel, a type of steel that increases corrosion resistance, improves resistance to pitting from chloride ion solutions, and provides increased strength at high temperatures. The piezoresistive sensor chip is housed in a fluidfilled cylindrical cavity and isolated from measured media. The thermally compensated device has a millivolt output of up to 180mV at a 1mA supply current. Devices are available in 1.5, 3, 5, 15, 30, 50, and 100 PSI. Other features include pressure ranges 1.5 to 100 psi; vacuum resistance; O-ring mounting; thermally compensated and passive calibrated (offset) mV output; and supply current of 1 mA.

Night-Vision Imaging

OleaVision™ See-Through Wall Technology from Olea Sensor Networks (Reno, NV) functions optimally at a distance of 3 to 4 meters from the target surface, requiring no contact with the wall. The lightweight device, smaller than a typical smartphone, “sees” through most wall materials, regardless of whether the monitored subject is moving or motionless. Using thermal energy, OleaVision enables first responders and armed forces to identify human beings during search-and-rescue operations. For Free Info Visit http://info.hotims.com/61062-405

Vision Sensors

The SBSI series of vision sensors from Festo (Hauppauge, NY) feature rugged IP67 housing, built-in lighting, and EtherNet/IP capability. SBSI sensors, which read 1D and 2D bar codes, can be ordered as components, portions of a subsystem ready for assembly, or parts of a plug-and-play module.

Surface Profiling Sensors

OGP® (Rochester NY), a division of Quality Vision International (QVI®), has introduced its TeleStar® Probe sensor. TeleStar Probe, a self-contained off-axis partial coherence interferometric range sensor for surface contour measurement, offers measured point resolution in the sub-micron (< 0.1 micron) space. The sensor scans up to 500 data points per second, with 1.0-micron accuracy and 0.1-micron repeatability.

Magnetic Position Sensors

The new AS5170 and AS5171 automotive sensors from ams AG (Premstaetten, Austria) were developed as SEooC (Safety Element out of Context) devices, as defined in the ISO26262 functional safety standard. The magnetic position sensors have a System-in- Package (SiP) format. The space-saving package enables the placement of the sensor device in environments that are prohibitive to PCB-based packages.
