New Dual Axis Inclinometer Based on MEMS Technology


ASM Sensors Inc. has introduced a new dual axis inclinometer, PTAM5, based on MEMS-technology. This inclinometer is fitted with an extremely robust housing that has been designed for outdoor use in harsh environments. The measurement range for the single axis version is +/- 180° while the dual axis version is capable of +/- 60°. Inclinometers that are used in outdoor applications such off-highway equipment, windmills and off-shore locations must be designed to handle severe weather conditions, temperature fluctuations and tough contamination. The new tilt sensor, PTAM5, comes with a robust stainless steel housing to protect it for these adverse factors. The inclinometer is easily and securely installed with four M8 bolts ...

New Optical, 6-channel Incremental Encoder IC for the Electronic Commutation of Small Motors


The new optical sensors iC-LTA and the iC-PT series supply incremental and commutation signals in the smallest possible design space. They are based on a flat optoQFN that is a mere 0.9 mm thick with a ultrathin glass lid. The optimized phased array structure of the photochips means that a minimal scanning area of just 1.9 mm x 3.1 mm is enough to generate 2,500 pulses from a code disc measuring only 26 mm across, for example ...

Capacitive Sensor Signal Conditioner Benefits Battery-powered Applications


ZMD AG (ZMDI) has expanded its family of capacitive sensor signal conditioners (SSCs) with the addition of the wide-dynamic-range ZSSC3122 cLite device. Thanks to new design technology, the chip delivers 14-bit resolution and 0.25 % full-scale-output accuracy. A built-in sleep mode lowers current consumption to <1uA for temperatures up to 85 °C, making the ZSSC3122 ideal in low-power battery applications, as well as industrial and rugged environments. MEMS sensing elements, such as pressure sensors for hydraulic control systems, humidity sensors and liquid level gauges also benefit from these features ...
