Module offers faster face recognition

Module offers faster face recognition
The HVC face recognition module from Omron Electronic Components Europe boasts a maximum recognition speed of up to ten times that of the existing unit. With the module, any embedded developer can add face recognition functionality to a system without the need to understand the algorithms or the optical design. The HVC-P2 B5T is available at Rutronik with 50° camera or 90° camera.

Silicon-carbide coating protects flow sensor modules

Silicon-carbide coating protects flow sensor modules
The FS1012 and FS2012 MEMS-based flow sensor modules from Integrated Device Technology (IDT) are now being shipped by distributor Mouser Electronics. The solid-state sensor element design eliminates cavities and diaphragms typically found in similar devices and features a protective silicon-carbide coating, making it a robust and reliable flow sensor element compatible with food-grade applications.

Wireless sensors keep marine steering on course

Wireless sensors keep marine steering on course
TorqSense wireless sensors from Sensor Technology are playing an important role in new product development for Hydraulic Projects Limited (Hy-Pro), one of the UK’s developers and suppliers of hydraulic drive units for marine steering and autopilot systems. The sensors, which accurately measure shaft torque in rotary drive systems, are providing the essential data that Hy-Pro needs to refine the design of the electrically powered pump assemblies used in the high-performance hydraulic steering systems that the company supplies for use in yachts and other small pleasure craft.

Proximity sensors handle extreme environments

Proximity sensors handle extreme environments
The IHM Series Aerospace Proximity Sensors benefit from Honeywell’s 30 years expertise in designing proximity sensors for defense and commercial aircraft. They are now available in Europe through TTI. The sensors reduce downtime and maintenance costs by detecting more internal failure modes accurately and reliably in extreme environments than competitive products on the market, thanks to a proprietary circuit.

Heavy duty liquid level switch

Heavy duty liquid level switch
SST Sensing’s Optomax Industrial Glass devices are targeted at installation within harsh industrial environments. Thanks to their stainless steel construction and glass sensor tip, these single point liquid level switches are said to exhibit elevated operational robustness. As a result, these devices are highly suited to applications where they are exposed to extreme temperatures (up to 125°C) and high pressures (up to 600bar).
