Laser Distance Sensors
A new laser measurement sensor featuring
a two-line user interface display
LE550 sensor offers a
range, repeatability, accuracy,
■ Accurate measurements from 100 to 1,000 mm.
■ A die-cast housing that is rated IP67, NEMA 6 for use in
■ The ability to be installed in close proximity for precise measurements.
E-Mon (Langhorne, PA)
has announced its new line
of Din-Mon k Wh/k W smart
meters. Housed in standard
DIN rail-mount enclosures, the
single-protocol (Din-Mon D2)
and dual-protocol (Din-Mon
D5) meters facilitate integration
of advanced energy monitoring
into building automation systems,
switchgear, control panels, server racks, renewable energy systems,
and other space-constrained applications. Features include:
■ A 4-line display.
■ Built-in RS-485 communications-protocols include EZ7 (E-Mon
Energy), Modbus RTU, or BACnet MS/TP.
■ Dual protocol communication.
■ 0.333 V output split-core current sensors (standard).
■ Enhanced safety and accurate remote mounting of sensors up to
500 ft from meter.
(Hingham, MA) has intro-
duced the ASM 340
leak detector for medical
applications. The ASM 340
compensates for compo-
nent temperature variations
and elastomeric creep, pro-
viding fast test results for high sensitivity applications. For global
testing the ASM 340 offers the user many decades more in sensi-
tivity than electronic air testing and the added advantage that it can
also be used to pinpoint the leak. Features include:
■ A large selection of interfaces for integration into production lines
and automatic test systems.
■ An integrated SD card and external device for further analysis.
■ Operation from a distance of up to 100 m.
the uCurrent Probe line of ultra-low current
probes, optimized for the wide dynamic current
ranges of today's battery powered products. The
uCP100's high gain amplifier and zoom view option
allows engineers to avoid analyzing current waveforms
using a scope's lowest volts per division setting, typically their least accu-
rate measurement range. Features include:
■ The ability to draw as little as 4 or 5 nA in sleep mode.
■ An input voltage range from 0 V to 20 VDC.
■ 3 measurement ranges.
■ A precision mode with a 2 nA to 40 uA range.
■ A wide-range mode with a 1uA to 400 mA range.
Differential Peak-Detecting Sensor IC
Allegro MicroSystems (Worcester, MA) has introduced a new optimized Hall-effect sensing IC for digital
ring-magnet sensing, or when coupled with a magnet, ferromagnetic target sensing, in three-wire applications. The A1468 sensor IC is targeted at the automotive market and is designed and optimized for
motor bike applications. Features include:
■ Dual Hall-effect elements with a 2. 2 mm spacing.
■ Signal processing that switches in response to differential magnetic signals created
by ring magnet poles.
■ A digital circuit to reduce system offsets.
