A new product release on the market constitutes a first for the pressure sensor industry.
The innovative BDS (Basic Dual Sensor) Series Pressure Sensor from All Sensors allows engineers to obtain simultaneous absolute and differential pressure readings from one device for the first time.
Available with a basic millivolt output, the sensor has two pressure ports that are balanced to optimise common mode response, while output offset and temperature errors are substantially reduced by electrically cross coupled sensing elements.
Deemed to be perfect for industrial and medical flow applications with high turndown ratio requirements, the product also uses minimal physical space on customers' PC boards, thus resulting in fewer pneumatic and mechanical failures.
In related news, Siemens motion sensors have recently been employed to monitor the operation of the screw conveyor in cement production in the United Arab Emirates.
The Milltronics MFA 4p motion sensor is being used with remote sensing probes by a leading cement producer in the country.
