Wearables manufacturers are integrating capacitive sensor technology in their testing and development stages in order to gauge and optimise fit and function for their customers. The issue of form and fit is extending well beyond traditional apparel to more specialised items such as bras, gloves, shapewear, compression stockings, diapers and eyeglasses for the burgeoning wearable technology market.
Sensor networks are made easy with Libelium's Waspmote Plug & Sense! In robust IP65 housing, the product offers scalable deployment of wireless sensor networks, minimal maintenance costs and compatibility with cloud platforms.
Claimed to require just one-sixth of the board space taken up by other sensors, the Infineon TLI4970 current sensor measures alternating and direct currents up to ±50 A. The digital sensor does not require external calibration.
The ATM/GR is a robust electronic pressure transmitter (0/4-20 mA) featuring two independent switching contacts that are adjustable across the full range of the sensor. Available with numerous user-defined configurations (eg, connection and output signal), the transmitter has long-term stability and is capable of providing safety features in a range of industrial or process applications where pressure or level limits are critical.
Customised sensors monitor and control the robotic drilling arm that is boring into the Martian surface.
The DTM digital pressure transmitter is a compact unit with robust stainless steel assembly, incorporating a piezoresistive measuring element.
Sensors and other electronics are usually made of rigid and stiff material such as metals and plastics - they cannot be stretched, twisted or thrown and should be handled with care. But that is about to change with the advent of stretchable electronics.
The digital and analog differential pressure sensors from Sensirion offer high accuracy and resolution, especially at low differential pressures.
Banner Engineering has introduced its latest iVu touch screen vision sensor family, the iVu Plus - adding ethernet connectivity and more advanced inspection capabilities to the platform.
Dytran Instruments has introduced the model 1022V IEPE force sensor, designed to offer low-mass dynamic measurement capabilities within the company’s smallest and most lightweight package.
With compact housings in stainless steel or titanium, measuring ranges of up to 1000 bar and reverse polarity/short-circuit protection included, the ATM.ECO/Ex and ATM.1ST/Ex pressure sensors are suitable for use in hazardous areas.
The Waterpilot FMX21 is a robust submersible pressure sensor for hydrostatic level measurement, in fresh water, wastewater and saltwater.
Bestech Australia has released the FS 6500 FBG accelerometer from FiberSensing.
Microchip has announced the PICDEM inductive touch development kit that makes it easy to develop inductive touch-sensing applications using standard 8-, 16- or 32-bit PIC microcontrollers or 16-bit dsPIC digital signal controller.
Dytran Instruments has released a series of ring-style charge output force sensors.
