Next-Gen Strain Gages Exploit Advanced Sensors Technology


Next-Gen Strain Gages Exploit Advanced Sensors Technology
Micro-Measurements
April 20, 2015

Employing some advanced sensor technology, the company’s next-generation strain gages address the demand for sensors needed to manufacture precision transducers. The Micro-Measurements Advanced Sensors strain gages offer a tighter resistance tolerance, improved gage-to-gage repeatability, and better stability than standard strain gages. They are built on a new manufacturing process using state-of-the-art equipment and tooling. Including tighter-tolerance products with shorter manufacturing lead times, the process has also allowed for the development of a new multi-axis gage that incorporates both a tee-rosette and dual-shear gage on the same backing.

Pressure Sensors Brandish ATEX/IECEx EX d IIC Certifications


Pressure Sensors Brandish ATEX/IECEx EX d IIC Certifications
American Sensor Technologies (AST) Inc.
April 20, 2015

The company’s AST46DS explosion-proof pressure transducer and AST54ED explosion-proof differential transformer are now certified according to ATEX and IECEx Ex d IIC flame proof requirements. The certifications qualify the pressure sensors for safe operation in explosive gas and dust environments, addressing both Europe (ATEX) and international (IECEx) standards. Designed with a voltage output signal with low current consumption, the AST46DS allows battery-operated devices to operate longer between battery maintenance or replacement. Offering a local display of the output signal or pressure and zero function to correct for any zero offsets, it is available with 316L or Inconel 718 for corrosive liquids or gases. The AST54ED produces an analog output signal and is available with line pressures up to 5,000 psi. It will measure differential pressure across filters or orifice plates.

PMICs Raise Integration Bars


PMICs Raise Integration Bars
Intersil Corp.
April 20, 2015

The ISL9590x power-management integrated circuits (PMICs) support the trend toward slimmer ultrabooks while hoisting integration levels to allegedly pass current industry levels. Measuring 5.5 mm x 5.5 mm, they enable the industry’s first credit card-size motherboards for high-end ultrabook and tablet computers powered by two-cell Li-ion batteries. The single-chip ISL95908 PMIC delivers eight voltage rails to support subsystem peripheral power requirements for Intel IMVP8 platforms and the single-chip ISL95906 provides eight power rails for VR12.6-compliant systems. Both PMICs integrate a controller, power and driver MOSFETS, VTT LDO regulator, independent enable and power-good indicators, I2C interfaces, and fault protection/monitoring for eight synchronous buck regulators. Additionally, they deliver 90% efficiency. Pricing for both is $7 each/3,000. For datasheets, visit:

CAM App Accelerates Productivity And Automation


CAM App Accelerates Productivity And Automation
DP Technology Corp.
April 20, 2015

The ESPRIT 2015 computer aided manufacturing (CAM) application promises to increase productivity for a full range of machine tool applications by generating more efficient toolpaths while also saving time by providing improvements in computer numerical control (CNC) programming productivity. The release also provides new and improved features specifically in the areas of intelligent machining, strategic machining, CAD-CAM data exchange, and Cloud-Enabled CAM. Intelligent machining features include unique five-axis cycles that reduce cycle time. This makes it possible to completely machine blades in a single setup. The Port Roughing cycle is a new feature that creates a five-axis roughing operation to remove the material inside an area where the tool must enter through a restricted opening. The shape of the toolpath is an offset of the port surfaces, starting at the surface and proceeding inward at a constant step over.

GNSS Module Enables High-performance Positioning


GNSS Module Enables High-performance Positioning
Telit Wireless Solutions
April 20, 2015

The SE868-V3 GNSS module combines GPS, Glonass, Beidou, Galileo, and SBAS tracking and can navigate to -162 dBm and track to -166 dBm, providing improved performance in harsh environments. It is pin-to-pin compatible with the former SE868-V2 as well as the JF2. This advanced GNSS module can track GPS and Glonass or GPS and Beidou constellations simultaneously and is Galileo ready. Residing in an 11 mm x 11 mm QFN package, the module contains a baseband processor, SQI Flash memory and GNSS chip with integrated low-noise amplifier. Additionally, the SE868-V3 supports ephemeris file injection (A-GPS) as well as Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS) to increase position accuracy. Its onboard software engine is able to locally predict short-term ephemeris starting from data broadcast by GNSS satellites received by the module and stored in the internal Flash memory.
