The hottest industrial sensors have a good market

  • Detail

Industrial swing out sensors have a good market performance and more diversified applications

although the recent discussion on CMOS and charge coupled device image sensors used in mobile devices is in full swing, don't forget that there are a large number of other types of sensors used in other devices, including HVAC, motion control, hydraulic systems, robots and other industrial systems

these sensors perform a variety of measurement tasks, including acceleration, pressure, torque, temperature, position beneficial environment, flow velocity and horizontal plane. Accurate measurement has always been a key requirement for industrial equipment, and the volume of devices and their ability to withstand harsh environments should not be underestimated

it is worth noting that the design and manufacturers of sensor devices used in industrial equipment include not only sensor professional companies, such as American Sensor Technology Corporation (AST), macrosensors and mtssensors, but also semiconductor companies, such as analog devices, Dallas Semiconductor, Meixin integrated products and Ti

according to market research firm freedoniagroup, the U.S. industrial sensor market is expected to grow from $2.2 billion in 2005 to $2.6 billion in 2010. In the entire U.S. sensor market, industrial sensors account for about 21%

freedonia believes that on September 17, 2014, Solvay polymer business department will participate in the 13th International Automotive Training Institute (CTI) Symposium on automotive transmission, hybrid and electric drive technology held in Suzhou. The key areas of sensor development will be advanced proximity and positioning sensors, photochemical sensors, CMOS devices and thermal imaging sensors, And those sensors that use advanced technologies such as micro electro mechanical systems (MEMS)

Omron electronics has successfully developed a hurricane type MEMS flow sensor d6f-p, which can detect instantaneous flow velocity with high sensitivity even in dusty environments, thanks to the dust isolation system (DSS) developed by OMRON

although this bidirectional flow velocity detection device is mainly aimed at the wind speed control of home and office air conditioners, it can also be used in measuring equipment, medical products and semiconductor equipment. The size of d6f-p is about 50% smaller than the previous generation products in Omron product line

another MEMS based sensor is from ADI. Using its iMEMS motion signal processing technology, the company has developed an industrial device that can be used to realize motion analysis and navigation dead reckoning functions that were previously only dedicated to national defense, aviation and other high-end equipment

this model ad maintains the industry-leading level. The inertial measurement unit (IMU) of is16355 can detect subtle changes in linear acceleration and angular motion, according to ADI

in addition to navigation, adis16355 multi axis motion sensor can also be used in highly sensitive robots and other motion control devices, in which IMU helps to ensure that precision movement can be accurately repeated thousands of times, ADI said

in addition, according to TI company, the latest tmp421 and tmp422 temperature sensors released by the company are the industry's smallest remote junction temperature sensors with built-in local temperature sensors. Both single remote channel tmp421 and dual remote channel tmp422 can provide (maximum) ± 1 ℃ remote sensor accuracy and (maximum) ± 1.5 ℃ local temperature sensor accuracy range

tmp421 and tmp422 also include dual wire/smbus serial interface and multi address function. These two devices are said to be suitable for a variety of application devices, such as telecommunications equipment, industrial controllers, processors and FPGA temperature monitoring and storage area (SAN)

Maxim also introduced a low-voltage digital temperature sensor, which allows up to 27 addresses to be connected to an I2C communication bus. This DS75LX sensor can work in the voltage range of 1.7v~3.7v. In the whole power supply voltage range and wide temperature range (-25 ℃ ~100 ℃), the factory calibration accuracy can reach ± 2 ℃ (maximum), while in the whole working temperature range of -55 ℃ ~125 ℃, the accuracy can reach ± 3 ℃ (maximum)

ds28ea00 is a sensor product launched by Dallas Semiconductor Company. It is a single line digital temperature sensor with an accuracy of ± 0.5 ℃. It has chain signaling and protocol functions, and can automatically determine the physical location of each sensor in the environment where multiple sensors are connected to a single common line

typical applications of this sensor from Dallas Semiconductor include rack mounted equipment, such as wireless base stations, central office switches, enterprise servers, HVAC and process monitoring. The device is packaged with 8-pin microsop
