Gas Sensor Modules

The new Komfy™ Switch with camera by D-Link features the iAQcore indoor air quality module from ams (Cupertino, CA). The iAQcore, a miniaturized, low-power gas sensor, uses a MEMS-based VOC component. The device provides an output of ppb TVOC and ppm CO2 equivalent units via an I2C interface.

Image Sensors

OmniVision Technologies (Santa Clara, CA) has released the OV16860, a 16-megapixel PureCel® Plus-S image sensor. A 1.3-micron pixel architecture enables full resolution recording at 45 frames per second. The sensor also supports high dynamic range (HDR), phase detection autofocus (PDAF), and slow-motion video recording. Additionally, the OV16860 provides a nominal operating digital voltage (DVDD) spec of 1.0V. 1080p high definition (HD) video can be achieved at 120 FPS via high speed D-PHY and C-PHY interfaces. The OV16860 fits into a 10.5 x 10.5 mm module. For Free Info Visit http://info.hotims.com/61058-146

Pressure Sensors

TE Connectivity (Berwyn, PA) has announced the 86BC, a 16-mm piezoresistive silicon pressure sensor packaged in a 316L stainless steel housing. O-ring mounting supports integration into industrial applications. The header-less unit utilizes silicon oil to transfer pressure from the steel diaphragm to the sensing element. A ceramic substrate is attached to the package containing laser-trimmed resistors, for temperature compensation and offset correction. An additional laser trimmed resistor adjusts an external differential amplifier and provides span interchangeability to within ±1%. Other features include 0-100mV output, -40 °C to +105 °C operating temperature, 1.0% interchangeable span, solid state reliability, and ±0.3% pressure non-linearity.

Temperature Sensors

Exergen Corp. (Watertown, MA) has announced the Extreme IRt/c non-contact temperature sensor. A custom-designed housing protects the sensor from extreme vibrations, shifts in pressure, and other acute ambient changes. The sensor was originally developed for a defense contractor whose client needed to measure the temperature of equipment mounted on the exterior of military aircraft.

Submersible Position Sensors

Macro Sensors (Pennsauken, NJ) has introduced submersible LVDT Position Sensors for use as part of subsea measurement systems. The SSIR 937 Series Submersible LVDT Position Sensors withstand deep sea environments with external pressures to 5000 psi. Designed for use in either pressure-balanced, oil-filled containers or directly in seawater, the 0.94-inch (24-mm)-diameter technologies are available in standard ranges of 2.00 inches (50 mm), 3.00 inches (75 mm), or 4.00 inches (100 mm). To minimize the number of pressure-sealed connections and I/Os, a 4-20mA two-wire, loop-powered I/O is utilized. The 4-20mA I/O also reduces noise over long transmission lines. A data acquisition system on the platform above supports offset management. For Free Info Visit http://info.hotims.com/61058-149
