Sensors Survey 2005: Quick Poll Results


It is my great pleasure to thanks all our members and visitors for participation in our Online Sensor Survey 2004: What Do You Use Most ? From 2 May 2004 up to the end of 2004 we have received 355 votes and comments with the following results: voltage output sensors - 46 %; current output sensors - 19 %; digital output sensors - 16 %; frequency output sensors 12 %; duty-cycle output sensors 2 % and other - 5 %. The last one includes phase-shift output sensors, charge output sensors and other options.


Taking into account the IFSA market forecast 'Forecasts and Modern Sensors Market: Today's Revolution Changes' and 'Sensors and Transducers: Frequency Output Versus Voltage Output' the market share for frequency-time domain sensors and digital sensors on its basis will be increased in the next five years.


Today there are a lot of manufactures producing digital output sensors with different interfaces and buses capabilities. It is still difficult to find the one to suit the smart sensors' requirements. As usually, sensor interfaces and buses are strongly associated with their field of application. Smart sensors are a new kind of application. So, our next Survey 2005 is about modern sensors interfaces and buses. As usually, our online mini survey will work like a mini forum. You are very welcome to answer only one survey questions ' What do you use most in your sensors and sensor systems ?' and give your comments and suggestions at http://www.sensorsportal.com/HTML/Polls.htm. Click the ' view results' and than 'comments' to see current results and opinions. In order to use it you must have Internet Explore 5.0 or Netscape 6.0 or higher browse version. In addition we will also publish this Survey in ASCII text format and online in IFSA Newsletter. Happy ping and nice Net surfing in 2005 !
