Featured Sensors Products
Omron E2B Proximity Sensors, manufactured with a "hot-melt" process, are offered as a cost-effective sensing solution for use in standard industrial environments. Designed with an all-around visible indicator, sensor status can be monitored from any direction. Laser-printed part numbers provide permanent identification, simplifying maintenance.
Omron's New 2SMPB-01-01 Absolute Pressure Sensor offers high accuracy, small size and low current consumption
Takes non-contact sensing to the next level by separating the magnet from the sensor body. The absence of the actuator shaft removes the wear and tear on the bearings caused by radial forces. A choice of a bare or a housed magnet is available.
Honeywell is pleased to announce improved temperature accuracy for its Honeywell HumidIcon™ Digital Humidity/Temperature Sensor portfolio consisting of the HIH6000, HIH6100, HIH7000, HIH8000, and HIH9000 Series.

So far, the 21st century has been a bit rocky for the electronic components industry. The turn of the century began not with the popping of champagne corks but the popping of the tech bubble. The first couple of years were spent working through the inventory hangover from the close of the preceding century and with deals to be had on excess components, the purchase price variance (PPV) became an entrenched metric for the customer base. Now, fifteen years in, the electronic components industry has developed the habit of tracking the rise and fall of the GDPs of the overall economies with in which it lives. Keep reading...

Global Purchasing Index remains in positive territory, but buyers surveyed report weaker confidence, as the index falls 12% compared to March.
Electronics Buyers Optimistic, But Report Slowdown in April.
Buyers of electronic components remained optimistic in April, though their business confidence slowed compared to the first quarter of the year, according to the Global Purchasing Index report for April. Keep reading...

After slipping below the 100-point mark indicating business optimism in December, the Global Purchasing Index surged 19% to a reading of 118 in January as buyers of electronic components reported better business conditions at the start of 2015.
Though GPI panel members reported a 3% drop in new orders from customers during the month, they said they expect orders to pick up later in the first quarter and in the second quarter of the year. They also reported an increase in their purchasing activity along with an increase in their electronic component inventories. Keep reading...
Sensors are available at TTI Inc. from industry leading manufacturers. TTI is an authorized distributor for many sensor manufacturers including: Honeywell, MEDER, Omron and Panasonic.
perform the same data input collection tasks as their larger electro-mechanical counterparts while also introducing some advantages, such as contact-free operation. Sensors that are now captured in MEMS include sensors for measuring pressure, motion, acceleration, temperature, magnetic field, and light, as well as gyroscopes, inclinometers, switches, capacitive touch sensors, and even microphones.
A photoelectric sensor
, or photoeye, is a device used to detect the distance, absence, or presence of an object by using a light transmitter (often infrared) and a photoelectric receiver. They are used extensively in industrial manufacturing. There are three functional types: opposed (a.k.a. through-beam), retroreflective, and proximity-sensing. When space is restricted or the environment too hostile even for remote sensors, fiber optics may be used. Fiber optics are passive mechanical sensing components. They may be used with either remote or self-contained sensors. They have no electrical circuitry and no moving parts and can safely pipe light into and out of hostile environments .
A position sensor
is any device that permits position measurement. It can either be an absolute position sensor or a relative one. Position sensors can be either linear or angular. Poisitioning Sensors are finding their way into more handheld, medical and industrial devices every day. Knowing the position and orientaion of a device or tool is critical for any modern control system to work accurately.
A pressure sensor
measures pressure, typically of gases or liquids. Pressure sensors can also be used to indirectly measure other variables such as fluid/gas flow, speed, fluid level, and altitude. Pressure sensors can alternatively be called pressure transducers, pressure transmitters, pressure senders, pressure indicators, piezometers, and manometers, among other names.
range from bare thermocouples and Resistive Temperature Devices (RTDs) to more sophisticated infrared non-contact sensors that can directly, consistently, and accurately measure a material's temperature. In many systems, temperature control is fundamental. There are a number of passive and active temperature sensors that can be used to measure system temperature, including: thermocouples, resistive temperature detectors, thermistors and silicon temperature sensors. These sensors provide temperature feedback to the system controller to make decisions such as over-temperature shutdown, turn-on/off cooling fan, temperature compensation or general purpose temperature monitor.
Things to Consider
- Temperature and humidity limits
- Internal or external power source
- Physical size limits
