Universal Frequency-to-Digital Converter UFDC-1M-16

Toronto, ON, Canada - SWP, Inc. New model of fast, two-cannel Universal Frequency-to-Digital Converter UFDC-1M-16 is designed for sensors systems applications requiring high speed frequency-to-digital conversion. In comparison with the previously model of UFDC-1 the new converter has increased up to 16 MHz internal reference frequency and decreased in 32 times conversion speed. The IC has wide frequency range from 1 Hz to 7.5 MHz (120 MHz with prescaling), programmable relative error from 1 to 0.001 % at appropriate non-redundant conversion rate from 6.25 ms to 6.25 ms and three popular communication interfaces for sensors applications: I2C, SPI and RS-232 ...

7290D variable capacitance accelerometer

The Endevco Corporation's Model 7290D Variable Capacitance Accelerometer with onboard, microprocessor-based temperature compensationis designed to provide very high thermal stability and global 2.5% total dynamic accuracy required for measurement of relatively low-level accelerations in laboratory test and measurement, automotive and aerospace applications including both military and commercial flight testing over the entire military spec temperature range of -55 °C to +125 °C. A Transducer Electronic Data Sheet (TEDS) conforming to IEEE 1451.4 has been included to store serial number and calibration information ...



Square Wave Output, Digital Sensor Technology Platform, inGen Linear Direct™ from INPROX Sensors (Boston, Massachusetts), is ready for custom development and license in critical OEM applications for automotive, aerospace, medical device and appliance markets. inGen, is a revolutionary, low cost patented technology suite of continuous output, harsh duty, non contact, precision sensors. These digital sensors run on an innovative, proprietary IC capable of interfacing directly with microprocessors without the need of any signal conditioning; internally or externally. Offering new capabilities in the areas of position, speed, temperature and pressure, inGen sensors utilize a specially tuned oscillator, which in turn produces a ‘frequency of oscillation’; an output in the form of a square wave that is read as a pulse train by digital microprocessors ...


Offset Conditioning Network

The MBW-303 Wheatstone Bridge Offset Conditioning Network from Microbridge Technologies, Inc. is comprised of four eTC Rejustors (re-adjustable resistors), the world's first fully analog, passive electronic Temperature Compensation (eTC) dividers, configured in a Bridge. Designed for Wheatstone bridge sensors in automotive, healthcare, consumer, and instrumentation markets, this single chip solution compensates for offset errors and offset drift in a Wheatstone bridge, solving the problem at the source. The MBW-303 simplifies the design process allowing sensor offset calibration and temperature compensation after final assembly, which negates all cumulative errors associated with the assembly processes, such as manufacturing tolerance errors, error introduced by stress, etc. ...


SCP1000 pressure sensor

Pilot watches made by Swiss De Havilland use VTI Technologies' Pressure Sensors for Precision Barometer and Altimeter Functions. The watches record times of take-offs and landings, flight duration, allowing the user to register both block to block and total flight time. The watches feature unique innovations that enhance flight data accuracy and usability of the watch. The DH-02 model is equipped with VTI's SCP1000 pressure sensor enabling altitude to be estimated to the accuracy of one foot. This entirely new interface, based on a rotating bezel, allows the user to adjust altitude and pressure (as in instrument panels) and to set the time - one of the intelligent features seen for the first time in the watch. Also, a completely new proprietary control system based on the magnetic fields has been introduced to give precise control of the functions of  watches" ...


500QD Load Cells

DS Europe is proposing Series 500QD Load Cells with a built-in analog or digital electronics. Main feature of series 500QD are: Measuring ranges: 0 to 2-3-6-12-25-60-110-220-330-550-1000-2000-3000-4000Kg FS; Accuracy: <  ±0,023% (up to 60Kg ) and 0,05 ( from 110 to 4000Kg FS); Analog outputs: 2 mV/V, 5 V, 10 V e 4-20 mA; Digital outputs: RS485, RS422 (Modbus and DSEnet protocols) and CANopen (profile DSP406). Digital output advantages: Differential data transmission allows high protection against electromagnetic noise, high resolution (24 bit A/D converter), cabling cost saving (parallel of many load cells on a single digital input port on PLC or computer), load cell zeroing ...


LCB500 load cells

FUTEK’s popular LCB500  Tension / Compression Load Cell is designed for possible use as a rod end load cell with mounting plates.
