ELECTRONICS/SENSORS: All Sensors Corp.’s new Basic Low Voltage Pressure Sensor product family consists of two product series, the Basic Low Voltage (BLV) Series and the Basic Low Voltage Reference (BLVR) Series. Both the BLV and BLVR are based upon All Sensors’ CoBeam2™ Technology. CoBeam2 Technology helps reduce package stress, as well as greatly improves position sensitivity when compared with competitive sensors. The BLV Series device utilizes a single die technology while the BLVR Series utilizes a dual die reference technology to reduce all output offset or common mode errors. The BLV and BLVR Series devices provide a high output signal at a low operating voltage. This is the result of an extremely sensitive sensing element capable of operating at low supply voltages. Lower operating voltages result in improved errors due to warm-up shift. The BLV and BLVR afford design engineers a new basic pressure sensor capable of low pressure measurement with improved energy efficiency. The Basic Low Voltage (BLV) Series is available in 1, 5, 10, 20 and 30 inH2O pressure ranges. The Basic Low Voltage Reference (BLVR) Series is also available 1, 5, 10, 20 and 30 inH2O pressure ranges.
The sensors are offered in a pc board mountable package. Multiple port configurations are available including gage and differential devices.
The BLV and BLVR employ All Sensors’ CoBeam2 Technology. Both devices provide a basic, uncompensated mV output. The BLVR Series device employs a dual die reference technology to reduce all output offset or common mode errors. The BLV Series device is specified at 1.8V excitation with 1mW power consumption. The BLVR (dual die) is specified at 3.3V excitation with 7mW power consumption. Low operating voltage offers increased energy efficiency.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
