Low-noise Aerospace-qualified Magnetometer


Bartington Instruments has recently been taking enquiries from customers about our Mag629 three-axis magnetometer and we’d like to clarify what a versatile piece of equipment it is. Users of this magnetometer have traditionally been from the defence sector, perhaps not surprisingly since the Mag629 complies with a number of Military Standards, including those related to temperature and vibration. However, the 629’s robustness means it is capable of operating in particularly harsh environments and its two-piece construction enables its use in an extremely wide range of applications. For example, the Mag629 is ideal for airframe compensation on standard aircraft but can just as easily be mounted on land or sea-based vehicles ...

Advanced Ultra-Flat Position Sensor for Use in Space


A new contribution to the group of sensors with satellite applications will come from Hoffmann + Krippner, Inc.; the company was recently selected by MOOG Inc., a worldwide designer, manufacturer, and integrator of precision motion control products and systems, to develop and produce a line of innovative position sensors for space-flight applications. Once qualified, these ultra-flat membrane potentiometers will feature noiseless operation and technical capabilities that were previously unknown. These two companies have recently signed an exclusive multi-year agreement that enables MOOG to use these sensors not only in their own products but also for other space applications ...

Temperature and Humidity Sensor for Construction and Energy-Saving Applications


Wireless telemetry specialist Radio-Tech has developed Ecosense, a battery-powered temperature and humidity sensor for internal and external applications. Ecosense is available in three versions: internal, external (reading both temperature and humidity), and surface (reading only temperature conducted through a wall). The sensor “chirps” every five minutes, transmitting its data to Radio-Tech’s RT:Wi5 data hub (or a modbus receiver); the information collected is then sent directly to the relevant server ...

Interoperability of High Power Vibration Energy Harvesting with Low Power Wireless Sensor Networks


Chicago, IL - Perpetuum Ltd., of Southampton, UK and Dust Networks® of Hayward, California, have demonstrated using the GE Bently Nevada Insight. Mesh that energy harvesting-powered wireless sensor networks are a practical reality even in the most demanding applications. Industrial condition monitoring systems can have high volume data transmission requirements and the consequent impact on power budgets is significant. However, the combination of Dust Networks’ low power SmartMesh® WSN products with High Power Vibration Energy Harvesters from Perpetuum, delivers an effective solution to meet market needs, as demonstrated this week at the Sensors Expo conference in Chicago, Illinois ...
