ADI Receives Best of Sensors Expo Award

June 16, 2010

The ADIS16223 digital tri-axial vibration sensor was recognized for its ability to simply, effectively, and affordably monitor the condition of manufacturing equipment.

NORWOOD, MA /BUSINESS WIRE/ -- Analog Devices (ADI), a global leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal-processing applications, has received a Silver "Best of Sensors Expo" award for the ADIS16223 iSensor digital tri-axial vibration sensor. The ADIS16223 was recognized for its industry-leading integration, accuracy, and cost-efficiency. It is designed for industrial process equipment, including turbines, industrial motors and bearings, lifts, stability controls, robotics, and any equipment where the ability to more easily isolate and monitor the vibration source leads to improved diagnostic accuracy or better maintenance.

The Sensors "Best of Sensors Expo" awards honor the most exciting new products that were on display at the Sensors Expo & Conference, which took place June 8–9 in Rosemont, IL. All entries were judged on the basis of potential impact, application, distinctiveness, timeliness, and availability.

"The awards program recognizes cutting-edge solutions in the sensors marketplace," said Melanie Martella, Executive Editor of Sensors magazine. "All of the nominations demonstrated exceptional innovation, integration, and ease-of-use. We believe this year's winners will be leaders in the sensors marketplace and offer our congratulations to the companies recognized."

About the ADIS16223 iSensor
Analog Devices' ADIS16223 iSensor accelerometer is a triple-axis, digital vibration sensor system that enables simple, effective, and affordable manufacturing equipment condition monitoring. The ADIS16223 combines ADI's proprietary iMEMS (integrated microelectromechanical system) technology with sensor signal processing, data capture, and a programmable SPI interface. The SPI and data buffer structure provide convenient access to wide-bandwidth sensor data and allow user-configurable embedded low and band-pass filtering. The ADIS16223's 22-kHz sensor resonance and 72.9-Ksps sample rate are intentionally matched for optimal machine-health applications, providing the high-frequency monitoring that allows a system operator to identify failing equipment long before costly damage is sustained. An internal clock drives the data sampling system, filling the buffer memory for user access. The configurable embedded data capture saves system power while allowing device tuning to multiple applications, as well as in-system adaption to end-equipment life-cycle changes.

About ADI
Innovation, performance, and excellence are the cultural pillars on which Analog Devices (ADI) has built one of the longest standing, highest growth companies in the technology sector. Acknowledged industrywide as a world leader in data-conversion and signal-conditioning technology, ADI serves over 60,000 customers, representing virtually all types of electronic equipment. Celebrating over 40 years as a leading global manufacturer of high-performance integrated circuits, used in analog and digital signal processing applications, ADI is headquartered in Norwood, MA, with design and manufacturing facilities throughout the world.
