Different Data Outputs Offer Design Options on New Digital Temperature Sensor from Measurement Specialties
TSYS02 combines low power, high accuracy in an ultra-small TDFN8 package
Hampton, Va. May 2013 – Measurement Specialties (NASDAQ: MEAS), a leading global manufacturer in sensor-based measuring of pressure/force, position, vibration, temperature, humidity and fluid properties, has released the TSYS02 family of compact digital temperature sensors that easily integrates into a variety of industrial control, HVAC/R and heating/cooling systems.
The series’ outstanding performance-cost ratio makes these sensors ideal for automotive and medical applications, and the SMT-compatible package enables the sensors to be used in high volume applications for on-circuit temperature control.
Designed with ease-of-use and flexibility in mind, these fully-calibrated sensors come in three different data output options:
TSYS02D: I2C (Inter-Integrated Circuit) for integration into digital interface bus systems; TSYS02P: PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) for integration into simple control units; TSYS02S: SDM (Sigma Delta Modulation) for integration into analog circuitries.
The 16-bit temperature sensing resolution combined with the low power and highly accurate characteristics make these sensors cost-effective replacements for thermistors, NTCs (negative temperature coefficients) and RTDs (resistance temperature detectors).
Available in an ultra-compact TDFN8 surface mount package, the TSYS02 measures only 2.5 mm x 2.5 mm, while drawing a maximum of 12.5 µA. Operating temperature range is -40°C to +125°C.
Every TSYS02 is factory-calibrated to provide a high accuracy of ±0.2°C. Custom calibration is also available to meet specific application needs.
Pricing for a TSYS02 is $1.85 (US) per unit in quantities of 10,000. Delivery time is dependent upon quantity ordered.
