Dual Pressure and Temperature Sensors

Different types of dual pressure and temperature sensors Within our range we have two different types of dual pressure and temperature sensors; EPTT - Eurosensor Pressure Transducer Temperature, meaning the two sensors are combined within the same housing - the temperature sensing element is...

Difference between a Sensor and a Transducer

The main difference between a sensor and a transducer is the output signal. Both a sensor and a transducer are used to sense a change within the environment they are surrounded by or an object they are attached to, but, a sensor will give an output in the same format and a transducer will convert...

Piezo Sensor Applications

Piezo sensors are used to measure the change in pressure, acceleration or strain by converting them into electrical charge. They offer very high sensitivity which makes them very well suited to applications within patient monitoring.  Piezo Sensor Applications Piezo sensors are used for...

What is a Linear Potentiometer?

Linear potentiometers are often rod actuated and connected to an internal slider or wiper carrier. The rod will be connected to a device or object which requires measurement. The linear potentiometer proportionally divides an applied regulated voltage over its operational range and provides a...

What is an LVDT?

LVDT stands for Linear Variable Differential Transformer, the device is constructed of a primary coil, one or two secondary coils, a ferromagnetic core (or slug), a tube or bobbin, a shield and a shaft. The ferromagnetic core is attached to a moving object and moves in a linear motion within the...
