Choosing The Proper Accelerometer For Measurement Success And Sanity from Sensors | Online Selecting the correct accelerometer technology for a measurement application is vitally important for obtaining accurate results. Your measurement results are only as good as your accelerometer selection criteria. In this article, we look at the different types of accelerometers available on the market, and the considerations around each type.   BASIC ACCELEROMETER TYPES In broad terms, accelerometers are classified into two categories: AC-RESPONSE and DC-RESPONSE. An AC-response accelerometer, as the name implies, is a sensor which hasRead More
Introducing the SGX SensorTech EC410 Electrochemical Oxygen Sensor SGX electrochemical sensors detect gases by producing a chemical reaction between the gas and oxygen contained in the sensor. This reaction produces a small current, which is proportional to the concentration of the gas present. The sensor is, in effect, a type of fuel cell, hence all electrochemical oxygen sensors are of the self-powered, diffusion limited, metal-air battery type, comprising an anode, a semi-solid electrolyte paste and an air cathode. The cell comprises an enclosure containing two electrodes, a flat PTFE tapeRead More

SGX SensorTech MEMS Pellistor VQ548MP & VQ548MP-DA Pellistors are solid-state devices used to detect gases which are either combustible or which have a significant difference in thermal conductivity to that of air. The detecting elements consist of small ‘pellets’ of catalyst-loaded ceramic whose resistance changes in the presence of the target gas hence the term ‘pellistor’ being a combination of ‘pellet’ and ‘resistor’. The earliest form of catalytic gas sensor used heated bare coils of platinum wire to burn the gas. The heat generated by the burning process produced aRead More
TDK InvenSense Introduces ICP-101xx Barometric / Altimeter Modules   TDK InvenSense has released the ICP-101xx pressure sensor family, based on MEMS capacitive technology which provides ultra-low noise at the lowest power, enabling industry leading relative accuracy, sensor throughput, and temperature stability. The first product is the ICP-10100 device. This pressure sensor can measure pressure differences with an accuracy of ±1 Pa, an accuracy enabling altitude measurement differentials as small as 8.5 cm, less than the height of a single stair step. This family also, consuming only 1.3 µA @1 Hz,Read More
