Air Flow Sensor, Etc. About Five Cars With Sensors

Friday, March 17th, 2017

Car Sensor A car computer system input devices, which run the car in various conditions of information, such as speed, temperature of various media, Engine Operating conditions, etc. into the computer lost the telecommunications number to the engine in top working condition. Many vehicle sensors to determine when the sensor malfunction should not only consider the sensor itself, but should consider the failure of the entire circuit. Therefore, to find fault, in addition to check the sensors, we should also check the wiring harness, connectors and sensors and electronic control unit of the circuit between. Now we come to know about the car’s main sensor.

Air Flow Sensor Air flow sensor is inhaled into the air Telecommunications No. sent to the electronic control unit (ECU), as the decision to spray one of the fundamental signal. According to different measuring principle, can be divided into rotary vane air flow sensor (PREVIA Toyota station wagon), Karman vortex air flow sensor Tour (Toyota Lexus LS400 sedan), Hot-wire Air Flow Sensor (Nissan Maxima car

VG30E engines and domestic passenger TJ6481AQ4 Tianjin Sanfeng equipped with the Volvo B230F engine) and the hot-film air flow sensor for the four types. Volume flow rate for the first two types, the latter two for the mass flow type. Currently the main use of hot wire and hot-film air flow sensor air flow sensor two.

Inlet pressure sensor Inlet pressure sensor can detect the engine load conditions within the intake manifold absolute pressure, and converted into electrical signals and sent to the computer with the speed signal, as the decision to the basic fuel injection amount of injector basis. Domestic Audi 100 Car (V6 engine), Santana 2000, Beijing Cherokee (25L engines), Toyota Crown 3.0 car all adopts such a pressure sensor. Is now widely used Semiconductor Pressure-sensitive Resistance Inlet air pressure sensor.

Throttle Position Sensor Throttle position sensor installed in the throttle, the throttle is used to detect the opening. It is through the lever body and throttle linkage, and thus reflect the different engine operating conditions. This sensor can be the engine of the different conditions tested and enter the electronic control unit (ECU), thereby control the amount of different fuel injection. There are three types: contact-type switch Throttle Position Sensor (Santana 2000 and Tianjin trimodal bus), linear variable resistor-type throttle position sensor (Beijing Cherokee), integrated throttle position sensor (Audi 100 V6 engine).

Crankshaft Position Sensor Also known as crank angle sensor, a computer-controlled ignition system, the most important sensors, whose role is to detect the TDC signal, crank angle signal and engine speed signals, and entered into the computer so the computer can press cylinder The ignition sequence of instructions issued by the best ignition timing. Crankshaft position sensor, there are three types: electromagnetic pulse crankshaft position sensor, Crankshaft Position Sensor Hall Effect (Santana 2000 and Beijing Cherokee), the photoelectric effect-type crankshaft position sensor. Crankshaft position sensor is different, its control and the control precision are different. Crankshaft position sensor is usually installed on the crankshaft pulley or sprocket side, some installed in the camshaft front, and some are installed in Distributor (Santana 2000).

Knock Sensor Knock sensor installed in the engine’s cylinder on the situation at any time to monitor the engine knock. Currently used are resonant and non-resonant two categories.

Eeonyx Leading Innovation Through Pioneering Fabric Pressure Sensors

Monday, May 30th, 2016

In the high- tech San Francisco Bay Area is a company that is the epitome of industrial innovation. Created in 1995, the Eeonyx Corporation, offers an advanced product line-up including textiles, foams, felts and powders that each offer specifiable degrees of conductivity. The company’s innovative offerings have been applied cross a broad range of industries.

From military applications, within static-controlled clean rooms, and for antennas; to applications for traditional commercial clientele, Eeonyx products are held in high regard for their flexibility of usage. Indeed, company engineers are constantly discovering applications for these superb products. Eeonyx’s proprietary, conductive coating technology forms the core element of their extensive array of products. Their current product catalogue includes Eeonomer composites [? ], EeonTex textiles, EeonFoam lossy foams, EeonFelt broadband absorbing felts, EeonStat fabric for clean room garments, and EeonYarn electro-conductive yarns.

EeonFoams are open cell polyurethane conductive foams with polymer coatings. These conductive foams are perfect for application in a number of different industrial environments regarding damping cavity resonances, EMI suppression and static dissipation. In terms of static dissipation, EeonFoams have become prevalent within tightly controlled industrial application areas, where the risk of build-up from static charge can potentially have catastrophic consequences.

In addition to their conductive foams, the Eeonyx Corporation has developed piezoresistive [pressure sensing ] fabric that is now being utilized to transform traditional operating practices across a plethora of industries. EeonTex fabric consists of a simple, thin fabric layer, which can conform to the often-complex 3D surfaces required for certain applications. Another additional benefit to fabric pressure sensors by Eenonyx is that they are highly cost effective and have been proven reliable in a number of extreme environments. They also offer high levels of resistance to conditions commonly encountered in industrial environments, such as mechanical abrasion, humidity, high temperature, and UV radiation. The difference between these particular fabric pressure sensors and traditional products is that they don’t simply surround the sensor; they ARE the sensor. When a physical object touches the EeonTex fabric, the pattern is altered, sending precise, actionable data to the connected hardware concerning factors such as velocity, size and dynamic movement of the pressure.

The uses for these fabric pressure sensors are nearly endless. For example, a piano teacher has taken advantage of the fabric pressure sensors to enhance her students’ lessons. Her students wear specially designed gloves, created from EeonTex fabric, that relay data to her via a computer screen about the student’s piano playing. She can then use this information to tailor a training program to suit her student’s musical abilities.

Tech firm, RSscan, a Belgian company, came to Eeonyx searching for a solution to their problem with their foot scanners, used in the sports industry. The foot scanners were too sensitive to heat and humidity, too slow for accurate readings, and became unreliable under certain conditions. The team at Eeoynx quickly went to work to devise the perfect product. Eeonyx developed a new fabric coating for the company’s pressure sensors that improved the product’s service life and response time in conditions of varying heat and humidity. RSscan was delighted with the product, which can be scanned 500 times per second, produce the most reliable results, and allow the team to access dynamic data provided for actionable diagnostics. Similarly, within a healthcare environment, these fabrics play a critical preventative role in detecting “hot spots” when patients are bed-ridden, so that nurses can stop a patient from developing bedsores.

Eeonyx is now ideally positioned within the electro-conductive materials marketplace as a leading provider of specialty engineered innovative products to suit their client’s unique requirements. For access to the latest in revolutionary conductive technology, contact Eeonyx today or visit their website at eeonyx and see how they’re solving today’s problems with precisely adapted, uniquely targeted and proven technological marvels.

Eeonyx has a core lineup of products including Conductive foams, textile, felts, conductive plastics, fabric pressure sensors and magnetic fabrics and powders all with specifiable degrees of conductivity. For more information, visit www.eeonyx.com.

It is a well known fact that Liquid level sensors which are being designed by companies are small in size and extremely easy to be installed. There are different applications of sensors today. Floods are a very common problem in recent times. Due to excessive rain, people face lots of problems in their house because water tends to get clogged, creating problems. You need to very careful and install Liquid level sensor so that information about the water level can be communicated to people in advance. Sewage systems are a perfect example of the deposition of rain water which causes huge problems. Sensors can help to warn the users so that they can avoid the problem to a great extent. Sewage water is dirty and considered to be a major health hazard.

• Fuel is in very short supply. Oil is transferred from one place to another in tanks that are filled periodically for transport. It is possible to measure the quantity of petrol using Liquid level sensors They are quite helpful to detect leakages helping save the environment.

• Sensors help to identify the level of liquid and make them more durable and long lasting. Ship travel has become quite popular in recent times. Moreover, different countries around the world engage in trade and commerce that would help to improve their economy.

• Sinking of ships could be detected by installing the Liquid level sensor which will help to determine the quantity of water inside the ship. It will enable the crew and concerned authorities to take preventive measures keeping the ship safe. One of the best examples of the sensors is in the brake component of the automobile.

• Brake fluid plays a very important role in controlling the movement of car. To ensure the component is working you need to confirm that the quantity of liquid is within the prescribed range. To detect its level, appropriate sensors are used that would help to alert drivers that their brakes would need looked at in the near future.

Wimoto launches “Motes” range of tiny, weatherproof smart sensors with crowd funding campaign on Indiegogo

Monday, March 2nd, 2015


Markham, Ontario (PRWEB) May 14, 2013

Wimoto Motes are tiny (about the size of a stack of five quarters) weatherproof sensors that can be stuck unobtrusively just about anywhere. They operate for up to a year on a single battery and wirelessly send information back to an app for iPhone and iPad, with support for Samsung Android devices arriving later this summer. There is also a toolkit allowing owners of computers with Bluetooth 4.0 support to write their own software for them.

Marc Nicholas, Wimoto and Chief Technology Officer and creator of Motes, said “I originally got the idea due to my interest in gardening. But when my son was born, I wanted to monitor the temperature and humidity in his bedroom overnight for health reasons, and I was surprised to find no low-cost, simple iPhone solution existed.” Nicholas demonstrated a prototype of the gardening sensor at Toronto’s Mini Maker Faire in 2011, and left his job in financial services earlier this year to concentrate on the venture full-time.

The Climote is the first in the Motes family, and provides precision ambient temperature, humidity and light level sensor data. Typical uses could include monitoring your wine cellar, humidor, baby’s bedroom, the inside of your refrigerator, or even weather conditions outside.

For those wanting to enter the world of “smart gardening”, the Growmote sends alerts directly to your iPhone or iPad informing a user when to water, thus conserving water and protecting your plants vitality. Equally at home on a lawn, in a vegetable garden, or indoors with potted plants, the device can also provide information on if a plant is receiving enough light or if there is a risk of frost.

Finally, the Thermote features an innovative sensor that allows it to measure the temperature of an object from a distance. This makes it ideal for monitoring water temperature in a hot tub, swimming pool, or aquarium, without having to be submerged, or as a non-contact thermometer for food or medical use when stuck to an iPhone or iPad with the supplied adhesive backing.

All Motes store sensor data in their onboard memory for up to a week when the mobile device is absent, and can be configured to send alerts when thresholds are crossed. A cloud-based upload service will be launched in the Fall that will allow owners to access their data from any web browser and analyze it.

Wimoto Motes will retail for USD$ 49 each but can be pre-ordered for a limited time through the Indiegogo campaign for $ 39 via this link.
