Sensirion's SDP2108-R is a sensor solution for measuring air flows in medical
ventilation applications. The new differential pressure sensor in the popular
SDPx108 family combines high speed and high accuracy with an extended measuring
range of 0 to 3500 Pa.
The SDP2108-R is based on the SDP1108-R, which
covers a smaller measuring range of 0 to 500 Pa, and it has similar mechanical,
electrical and physical characteristics. The SDP2108-R differential pressure
sensor is fully calibrated and temperature compensated. It also features a very
fast response time of 8 ms and provides an analog output signal with a range of
0-4 V. The root square output enables very accurate measurements at small
differential pressure levels, while at the same time allowing the sensor to
cover a wide dynamic measuring range.
The SDP2108-R features extremely high precision and utilizes the
principle of thermal flow measurement to achieve sensitivity and accuracy even
with extremely small differential pressures. Unlike membrane-type differential
pressure sensors, the SDP2108-R exhibits high stability and freedom from zero
With an extended measuring range of 0 to 3500 Pa
and a fast response time of 8 ms, the SDP2108 has been developed specifically
for medical technology. In particular, it is an ideal solution for patient
ventilation applications. The SDP2108-R is also a solution for time-critical
applications in process automation and HVAC control systems.
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.
