New Flow Meter for Compressed Air and Gases


Only by knowing your exact compressed air and process gas costs will you be able to unearth significant savings potentials. Irrespective of pressure and temperature, the EE771 flow meter from E+E Elektronik measures mass flow or volumetric flow in your supply system with the greatest accuracy. The flow meter can be used effectively to measure the consumption of compressed air, nitrogen, helium, argon, oxygen or other non-corrosive gases. The design of the new EE771 flow meter is based on the direct thermal mass flow measuring principle. At its heart is an E+E hot-film sensor element proven over several million installations in the automotive industry ...

Magnetic Rotary Position Sensors


Elmhurst, IL - New to the POSIROT® family of magnetic rotary sensors is the PRAS21 series. This non-contact position sensor uses an external position magnet to provide an absolute output signal over a 0 to 360 degree measurement range. By using an external magnet, this sensor provides continuously wear-free operation. The measurement range is 360 degrees and may be ordered with smaller measurement ranges in 15 degree increments. The sensor output is an analog voltage signal, 0.5 V to 4.5 V. Other outputs are available upon request ...

Low Power and Compact ±45° Angle Sensors


PEWATRON offers the new Midori low power sensor, which is ideally suited for battery operated devices. The magnetoresistive technology allows for a superb low current consumption of 0.6 mA typical at 9 V. Thus consuming more than 20 times less current than a comparable Hall-effect based device. The compact sensor weights only 10 g, offers a superb low torque of 0.05 mNm and is therefore the ideal sensor for medical devices, portable equipment and micro-robotics. The sensor operates from -40 °C up to +100 °C ...
