Sensors for the Internet of Things and M2M applications
13 June 2015
SensoInk and SensoFoil intelligent sensing technologies can be used for Internet of Things applications such as process automation, position tracking and real time supply chain support.
SensoInk is based on printed polymer pastes and can be printed as potentiometers, resistors, switches or keyboard contacts on circuit boards or electronic components. Only two components are required for signal transformation: a printed potentiometer track on a carrier material (such as FR4 or PET foil) and a conductive wiper.
Sensofoil thin-film membrane potentiometers offer a flat design of 0.5mm to 1mm, repeat accuracy of 1mm to 10µm, easy to achieve redundancy and problem-free device integration. The standard linear Sensofoil is available in lengths of 50mm up to 500mm, 40mm wide rotary, and custom sizes and shapes. Sensofoil is available in PET (ultra-thin), Magnet (contactless – long lifetime) or Hybrid technology (extended lifetime and temperature range).
The sensors are designed to detect the presence of objects - such as milk cartons in fridges, etc. The web connected sensor, combined with the intelligent software, can be deployed in smart IoT and Machine to Machine (M2M) applications.
