With pre-amplification and temperature compensation
Servoflo Corp. is pleased to announce a new line of pre-amplified 3V pressure sensors from Fujikura of Japan. Accepting a supply voltage of 3V ±0.15V dc, the X3 Series come in a variety of models including differential, gauge, and absolute pressure versions. With a rated, measurable pressure range of 50 to 1000 kPa, the X3 Series has an accuracy of ±5 percent full-scale from 0 to 50C. The factory-calibrated high-level output provides a 1.5V dynamic range to allow for good resolution and sensitivity. On-chip amplification and temperature compensation make the Fujikura X3 Series easy to use. A variety of package styles are available, including dual in-line, horizontal pressure port DIP, 3- and 6-mm pressure ports, and surface mount designs. Non-corrosive gas is used in all models except for the XFGMC which accepts some, non-corrosive liquids. Applications for the Fujikura X3 Series include altitude compensation, industrial automation, pressure switches, barometers and altimeters, pneumatic and medical devices.

The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
