Humidity, Moisture Sensors
Moisture Sensors are designed to detect and respond to the presence or a change in the amount of humidity along with Pressure, Temperature, and Light. The output types are Analog Voltage, Capacitance, Digital, Frequency, I2C, LCD Display, LCD, PDM, PWM, Resistive, SDM, SPI, ZACwire, and ZigBee with accuracy ranging from ±1.5% RH to ±7% RH.
Magnets - Sensor Matched
Sensor-matched magnet products are magnets that are specifically indicated for use with one or more magnetic sensor products, and which often incorporate some sort of overmolding or packaging to facilitate mechanical mounting in an end application. Though most magnet-based sensor systems can be used with any magnet having suitable characteristics, availability of matched magnets allows sensor manufacturers to describe the behavior of their products in terms of a magnet of known characteristics.
Motion Sensors - Accelerometers
Accelerometers are designed to detect and respond to changes in acceleration like movement or vibrations. The Accelerometer types are Analog or Digital in the X, Y, or Z axis with an acceleration range of ±0.5 g to ±2000 g and a sensitivity of 1 to 500 k (LSB/g) with output types of Analog Voltage, Bluetooth, Digital, DSI, IEPE, I2C, PCM, PWM, RF, and SPI.
Motion Sensors - Gyroscopes
Gyroscopic motion sensor ICs and modules are used for measuring or maintaining orientation and angular velocity on one or multiple axes. Axes may include X (pitch), Y (roll) and Z (yaw) in rotation ranges from 100 to 6000 degrees. Gyroscopes (gyros) are selected by sensitivity, analog or digital, voltage supply, case style and output type such as analog, I2C and SPI.
Motion Sensors - IMUs (Inertial Measurement Units)
Motion Sensors - IMUs (Inertial Measurement Units) is a device that measurers velocity, orientation, and magnetism using an Accelerometer, Gyroscope, and Magnetometer to get the direction, proper acceleration, and location. The other types of sensors include Temperature, Inclinometer, and Barometric Pressure.
Optical Sensors - Photodiodes
Products in the photodiode family are used for detection and measurement of light. Based on the interaction of light with a semiconductor junction similar to that found in rectifier diodes, devices adapted for a wide range of purposes are available. Some are adapted for sensitivity over narrow wavelength ranges, others for sensitivity over a wide range. Some are suitable for detection of high-speed signals such as encountered in fiber optic communications, others for detection of extremely low levels of light (even individual photons) with applications ranging from medical imaging to distance measurement.
Position Sensors - Angle, Linear Position Measuring
Angle and linear position measuring sensors use capacitive, Hall effect, inductive, LVDT, LVIT, magnetoresistive, optical or resistive technology to determine the position of the sensor's actuator relative to a reference point. Angle position sensors are differentiated by their electrical or mechanical range in either a limited or continuous rotation range. Linear position sensors are differentiated by ranges from 0 up to 400 inches. Other considerations include actuator type, output type and signal, mounting type and percent linearity.
Pressure Sensors, Transducers
Pressure Sensors or Transducers are designed to detect and respond to the presence or a change in the amount of force on the device. The pressure types are Absolute, Compound, Differential, Gauge, Sealed Gauge, Switch, Vacuum, and Vented Gauge with operating pressures from -100PSI (-689.48kPa) to 20000PSI (137895.15kPa).
Solar Cells are designed to convert solar (light) energy into electrical energy. The types of cells are amorphous, monocrystalline, and photovoltaic with a power max ranging from 7.95µW to 50W. The size / dimension of the cells range from 0.193” L x 0.154” w x 0.061” H (4.90mm x 390mm x 1.55mm) to 29.300” L x 27.800” W x 1.417” H (744.00mm x 706.00mm x 36.00mm).
Specialized Sensors are devices designed for specific requirements or for niche applications. The sensor types are accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, pressure, temperature, humidity, light, air quality monitor, analog-to-frequency converter, anemometer, battery sensor, biometric, bubble detector, button press, camshaft, capacitive, contact sensor, depth gauge, dry contact sensor, fingerprint, force sensing, gas, geiger tube, infrared, joystick, and laser power, among others.
Temperature Sensors - NTC Thermistors
NTC Thermistors, or Negative Temperature Coefficient Thermistors, are devices that change resistance in response to changes in temperature. With negative coefficient parts, their resistance decreases as their temperature increases. They are typically defined with variables such as the parts base resistance value at a set temperature, usually 25°C, and B values, the performance curve of temperature vs. resistance calibrated between two fixed points.
Temperature Sensors - PTC Thermistors
Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) thermistor temperature sensors are devices that exhibit an increase in resistance in response to an increase in temperature. Thermistors produce an output signal that is relatively large and easy to measure compared to many other temperature sensor types, though their characteristics tend to be less stable and less suitable for precise temperature measurements. PTC thermistors in particular are often adapted for over-temperature detection applications, and often exhibit a distinctly nonlinear temperature-resistance relationship that makes them useful for detection of an imprecise "high" temperature condition, though poor for making accurate measurements.
Ultrasonic Receivers, Transmitters
Ultrasonic Receivers and Transmitters are designed to detect and transmit high frequency sound waves, respectively. They are characterized by frequency, rated voltage, and beam angle. Their typical operating frequency range are 50Hz, 10kHz to 65kHz, 20kHz, 25kHz, 28kHz, 38kHz to 42kHz, 40kHz, 42kHz, 49.5kHz, 58kHz, 60kHz, 300kHz, 1MHz, 2.45mHz, and 168MHz.
