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...

Pneumatic Leveling Mounts for Good Sound and against Bad Vibrations

Pneumatic Leveling Mounts for Good Sound and against Bad Vibrations

The song ‘Good Vibrations’ by the Beach Boys is a hit. The opposite of this are shocks, oscillations and vibrations that ruin the listening experience. The engineers at the electronics company BaiRuiKe Technology Co., Ltd. know how critical hi-fi purists are. In Shenzhen, near Hong Kong, they develop and manufacture high-quality tube amplifiers and the corresponding components.

In order to demonstrate the performance of the audio products to visitors from all over the world, they are received in a specially designed demonstration room. When...

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
• Better...
