Solid-State Pressure Switch

 

Norgen-Herion's new Model 33D Solid-State Pressure Switch provides highly reliable switching and long life - up to 100 million cycles. It is available in ranges from vacuum to 10,000 psi and fully programmable for NO, NC, or "window-mode" operation. Real-time LCD display with selectable pressure units has amber backlight for high visibility. Switch features programmable delays, LED status indication, tamper protection, and industry standard M12 electrical connector. All-stainless steel wetted parts provide compatibility with a wide variety of fluids. Options include dual switch outputs or a secondary analog output.

Solid-State Pressure Switch 33D

Low Cost, Miniature Piezoelectric Accelerometer

 

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif.  - The Endevco Model 5128 is a low-cost, miniature piezoelectric accelerometer designed specifically for high-volume OEM applications. The unit can be configured as a single, biaxial or triaxial accelerometer within the same TO-9 package. Designed to provide high-performance integrated vibration measurement of machines, structures or vehicles, the accelerometer provides 1.5 pc/g sensitivity, an amplitude response of 1 to 3,500 Hz, and is hermetically sealed. Mounting hardware and cabling are eliminated. The Model 5128 is ideal for integration into electronics packaging and may be mounted by either adhesion or soldering.

New Industrial Piezoelectric Accelerometers

 

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif. - Endevco Corporation's new 5230/5231 series of piezoelectric accelerometers is designed specifically for vibration measurement in the rugged environments of industrial machinery monitoring. The accelerometers incorporate an integral 2-conductor, double-shielded, 20 AWG cable for ease of installation. Additional features include 100 mV/g sensitivity, 80 g pk dynamic range, an extremely low noise floor, an active 2-pole low-pass filter for resonance suppression, and hermetic sealing to ensure long-term operation with excellent stability. Signal ground is isolated from the mounting surface and outer case to prevent ground loops. Faraday shielding limits sensitivity to ESD to a minimum. The accelerometers operate within a temperature range of -58F to 257F (-50C to 125C).

Fillfactory IBIS4 CMOS Image Sensor

 

This low cost type 2/3" CMOS Image Sensor combines high sensitivity with excellent image quality and high readout speeds. Readout modes comprise of progressive scan, combined with windowing and sub sampling. The already excellent linear dynamic range of 66 to 76dB can be extended up to 1QOdB by using the double slope integration mode. Due to its high resolution of 1280 (H) X 1024 (V) effective pixels, the IBIS4 is well suited for digital photography, progressive-scan digital video and many more.

IBISX4 CMOS Image Sensor

FUGA 1000 CMOS Image Sensor with Interface to Microprocessors

 

This sensor distinguishes itself from classical CCDs with its random adressability and logarithmic photoelectric transfer. The FUGA1000 can view scenes with vastly different luminance's in the same image without even the need for setting an exposure time. With their on-chip ADC, FUGA1000 is intended to interface to microprocessors without additional circuitry. The dynamic range of the FLJGA1 000 is beyond six decades - that is 1 20dB! It is suitable for Welding Imaging, Profile Measurement, Laser Spot Tracking and many more. The resolution of this 2/3" type CMOS Image Sensor is 1 024 (H) X 1 024 (V).
