Applications & Technologies

Sensors are devices which receive and respond to signals. A sensor's sensitivity indicates how much the sensor's output changes when the measured quantity changes.

Pressure

MCUA pressure sensor measures pressure, typically of gases or liquids. Pressure is an expression of the force required to stop a fluid from expanding and is usually stated in terms of force per unit area. A pressure sensor transducer generates an electronic signal as a function of the pressure imposed. Pressure sensors are used for control and monitoring in thousands of everyday applications.

Optical

PowerA photoelectric sensor, or photoeye, is a device used to detect the distance, absence, or presence of an object by using a light transmitter (often infrared) and a photoelectric receiver. They are used extensively in industrial manufacturing. There are three functional types: opposed (a.k.a. through-beam), retroreflective, and proximity-sensing.

Thermal

RFThermal sensors range from bare thermocouples and Resistive Temperature Devices (RTDs) to more sophisticated infrared non-contact sensors that can directly, consistently, and accurately measure a material's temperature. In many systems, temperature control is fundamental. There are a number of passive and active temperature sensors that can be used to measure system temperature, including: thermocouples, resistive temperature detectors, thermistors and silicon temperature sensors. These sensors provide temperature feedback to the system controller to make decisions such as over-temperature shutdown, turn-on/off cooling fan, temperature compensation or general purpose temperature monitor.
