How to Specify Pressure Sensors for Hydraulic Applications

How to Specify Pressure Sensors for Hydraulic Applications

Hydraulic applications rely on fluid power or the use of pressurized fluids to generate, control and transmit power. These types of systems can produce high power and high forces in small volumes and have long service lives. Fluid power is used in a wide range of industrial applications including self-propelled scissor lifts, injection molding, machine tools, steel making and metal extraction, paper industries, textile machinery, disability lifts and security and parking barriers.
 
Pressure sensors are critical components in these systems, where they are used...

How Haydon Kerk Pittman supports XENEX in its fight against the COVID-19 virus

How Haydon Kerk Pittman supports XENEX in its fight against the COVID-19 virus

Haydon Kerk has developed a Dual Guide Rail specifically for the Xenex Robot application. The Xenex robot uses ultraviolet light to disinfect and sanitize the surrounding area.

The Haydon Kerk Dual Guide mobilizes the UV light as it ascends and descends out of the robot. A field-friendly solution for Xenex’s disinfecting robot – helping hospitals reduce infection rates by 50-100% and contributing to the fight against COVID-19.

Cost-Effective Isolated Miniature GO Sensors

Cost-Effective Isolated Miniature GO Sensors

A fast measurement speed, achieved within tight cost and size constraints while integrating the primary conductor in SO packages without compromising the necessary insulation, is often as critical as the other high performances for current measurement in motor-drive applications.

A unique sensor from LEM International with an integrated primary conductor achieves optimum temperature accuracy, measuring from -40 to +125 °C in a surface mounted SO8 or SO16 package. 
  
• 10-30 A nominal current
