High-temperature versions of MEC switches now for the price of standard versions.

ompany MEC, Dutch producer of top-class push-button switches Multimec, Unimec and others comes with good news for developers and producers of electronics. Well-known reliable push-buttons were in majority of cases available in so called standard version (L6, -40...+115°C) and in a high-temperature version (H9, -40...+160°C). From now on, all types will be gradually available only in a „high temperature“ ver ...

Howto Measure RTD (Resistance Temperature Detectors) over long distances

There is a multitude of process parameters nowadays that need to be measured in the industrial environment (temperature, pressure, humidity, force etc.). Out of these, undoubtedly the most common one is temperature, as it influences most manufacturing parameters. It is no wonder then that many solutions have been developed over time to measure it. There are a few general categories any industrial temperatur ...

Non-Contact Body Temperature Meter

One of the most commonly used medical instruments nowadays is the thermometer. The thermometer is used to monitor or measure the body temperature of a sick person. The idea of creating a thermometer started from a device called thermoscope, a thermometer without a scale. Several inventors developed it until Sir Thomas Allbutt invented the first practical 6-inch medical thermometer able to sense a body tempe ...

Building your own Simple Laser Projector using the Microchip PIC12F683 Microcontroller

The 8 pins PIC12F683 microcontroller is one of the smallest members of the Microchip 8-bit microcontroller families but equipped with powerful peripherals such as ADC and PWM capabilities. This make this tiny microcontroller is suitable for controlling the DC motor speed. In order to demonstrate the PIC12F683 capabilities and to make this tutorial more attractive, I decided to use the PIC12F683 microcontrol ...

Even the humidity & temperature sensors can be „3G“

Even the actual series like SHT1x and SHT2x belong to a top in this segment. Forthcoming series SHT3x (SHT30, SHT31 and soon also SHT35) addresses mainly those of you, requiring maximum accuracy even in limit values (humidity below 10% and above 90%), miniature dimensions and ultra low power consumption. So a main difference of a new SHT31 compared to SHT21 is, that a typical +-2% is maintained in a whole r ...

12F675 Tutorial 5 : A Temperature data logger using PIC EEPROM. using pic microcontroller

EEPROM is useful for storing long term data such as data logger information and this PIC microcontroller EEPROM project saves the temperature from an LM35DZ IC to the PIC's internal long term data storage area.  The project follows on from the last project using the virtually the same hardware. It stores temperature readings internally at regular intervals until full and after this it turns on the LED. The ...

Low cost temperature data logger using PIC and Processing

This project describes an easy and inexpensive way of adding a digital thermometer and data logging feature to a PC. It involves a PIC microcontroller that gets the surrounding temperature information from the Microchip MCP9701 sensor, and sends it to a PC through an USB-UART interface. The USB port of the PC is also used to power the device. The open-source Processing programming platform is used to develo ...
