Welcome to Thomasnet. Below you will find comprehensive information on the types of products, their suppliers and manufacturers, sensor applications in industry, considerations, and important attributes.
In our day-to-day life we fre quently use different types of sensors in several applications such as IR sensor used for operating television remote, Passive Infrared sensor used for automatic door opening system of shopping malls and LDR sensor used for outdoor lighting or street lighting system, and so on.
In this article we will discuss about a few types of sensors and their applications in brief. But, primarily we must know what is a sensor. A device that detects the changes in electrical or physical or other quantities and thereby produces an output as an acknowledgement of change in the quantity is called as a Sensor. Generally, this sensor output will be in the form of electrical or optical signal. The most frequently used different types of sensors are classified based on the quantities such as Electric current or Potential or Magnetic or Radio sensors, Humidity sensor, Fluid velocity or Flow sensors, Pressure sensors, Thermal or Heat or Temperature sensors, Proximity sensors, Optical sensors, Position sensors, Chemical sensor, Environment sensor, Magnetic switch sensor , etc.
Typical applications of different types of sensors such as application of Speed sensor for synchronizing the speed of multiple motors, Temperature sensor application for industrial temperature control, application of the PIR sensor for automatic-door-opening system, Ultrasonic sensor application for distance measurement, etc.
Sensors used for detecting speed of an object or vehicle is called as Speed sensor. There are different types of sensors to detect the speed such as Wheel speed sensors, speedometers, LIDAR, ground speed radar, pitometer logs, doppler radar, air speed indicators, pitot tubes and so on.
PIC microcontroller based project for speed synchronization of multiple motors in industries using wireless technology is a typical application of the speed sensor.
The main motor and receiver motors used in this project are BLDC motors that are controlled using PWM control with the radio frequency wireless communication mode. Full speed will be displayed on display unit and required speed of all motors can be obtained by entering the desired percentage using the keypad. This entered percentage is matched with running RPM by maintaining appropriate DC power to motor with automatic adjustment of pulse width output of microcontroller.
A device which gives temperature measurement as an electrical signal is called as Temperature sensor. This electrical signal will be in the form of electrical voltage and is proportional to the temperature measurement. There are different types of sensors used for measuring temperature, such as Contact type temperature sensors, Non-contact type temperature sensors. These are again subdivided as Mechanical temperature sensors like Thermometer and Bimetal.
Electrical temperature sensors like Thermistor, Thermocouple, Resistance thermometer and Silicon band gap temperature sensor. Design of Industrial Temperature Controller for controlling temperature of devices used in industrial applications is one of the frequently used practical applications of the temperature sensor. In this circuit IC DS, a digital thermometer is used as a temperature sensor, thermostat, which provides 9-bit temperature readings.
An electronic sensor used for measuring the infrared light radiation emitted from objects in its field of view is called as a PIR sensor or Pyroelectric sensor.
Every object that has a temperature above absolute zero emit heat energy in the form of radiation radiating at infrared wavelengths which is invisible to the human eye, but can be detected by special purpose electronic devices such as PIR motion detectors. PIR sensor itself is split into two halves, which are sensitive to IR and whenever object comes in the field of view of the sensor, then positive differential change will be produced between two halves with the interception of the first half of the PIR sensor.
Similarly, if the object leaves the field of view, then negative differential change will be produced. There are different types of sensors used for detecting the motion and these PIR sensors are classified based on angle wide area over which they can detect motion of the objects like degrees, degrees and degress angles. Automatic Door Opening System is a typical application of PIR sensors which is intended for automatic door closing and opening operations based on body movement near the door.
PIR-sensor-based-automatic-door- opening system circuit mainly consists of a PIR sensor, an micrcontroller, a driver IC, a door motor.
If a body movement is present near the door, then infrared radiation emitted from the body will cause the sensor to produce sensing signal which is fed to microcontroller. The door motor is then controlled and operated by the microcontroller through driver IC.
This project is intended for operating doors of shopping malls, theatres and hotels. The transducer used for converting energy into ultrasound or sound waves with ranges above human hearing range is called an ultrasonic transducer. The distance measurement at inaccessible areas is a typical application of ultrasonic sensors.
The circuit consists of an ultrasonic module, LCD display and microcontroller. The ultrasonic module is interfaced with the microcontroller and this ultrasonic transducer consists of a transmitter and receiver. The waves transmitted by transducer are received back again after the waves are reflected back from the object. The velocity of sound is considered for calculating time taken for sending and receiving waves. The distance is calculated by executing a program on microcontroller, and then it is displayed on the LCD display.
There are many sensors such as humidity sensor, gas sensor, pressure sensor, water sensor, leaf sensor, rain sensor, tilt sensor, rate sensor and so on, which are being used in many applications.

Generally, we use conventional wall socket switchboards for switching on industrial appliances or home appliances such as fan, cooler, industrial motors, and so on. But, it is very difficult to operate the switches regularly. Hence, home automation and industrial automation systems are developed for ease of controlling all the required electrical and electronics loads.

History has shown that advancements in materials science and engineering have been important drivers in the development of sensor technologies. For instance, the temperature sensitivity of electrical resistance in a variety of materials was noted in the early s and was applied by Wilhelm von Siemens in to develop a temperature sensor based on a copper resistor.
A pressure sensor is a device for pressure measurement of gases or liquids. Pressure is an expression of the force required to stop a fluid from expanding, and is usually stated in terms of force per unit area. A pressure sensor usually acts as a transducer ; it generates a signal as a function of the pressure imposed. For the purposes of this article, such a signal is electrical.
World of Sensors
We live in a World of Sensors. You can find different types of Sensors in our homes, offices, cars etc. All these and many other automation tasks are possible because of Sensors. Before going in to the details of What is a Sensor, What are the Different Types of Sensors and Applications of these different types of Sensors, we will first take a look at a simple example of an automated system, which is possible because of Sensors and many other components as well. The example we are talking about here is the Autopilot System in aircrafts. Almost all civilian and military aircrafts have the feature of Automatic Flight Control system or sometimes called as Autopilot. An Automatic Flight Control System consists of several sensors for various tasks like speed control, height, position, doors, obstacle, fuel, maneuvering and many more.

Sensors are everywhere. Sensors have been around for a long time. The first thermostat was introduced in the late s and infrared sensors have been around since the late s. Broadly speaking, sensors are devices that detect and respond to changes in an environment. Inputs can come from a variety of sources such as light, temperature, motion and pressure. Sensors output valuable information and if they are connected to a network, they can share data with other connected devices and management systems. They can warn you of potential problems before they become big problems, allowing businesses to perform predictive maintenance and avoid costly downtime.
Пока этого, по-видимому, не случилось: цифра 16 в окне отсчета часов заставила бы его завопить от изумления. Сьюзан допивала уже третью чашку чая, когда это наконец произошло: компьютер пискнул. Пульс ее участился. На мониторе появилось символическое изображение конверта - это значило, что пришло сообщение по электронной почте. Сьюзан бросила быстрый взгляд на Хейла, но тот был всецело поглощен своим компьютером.
Что. Скажи. Сьюзан словно отключилась от Хейла и всего окружающего ее хаоса. Энсей Танкадо - это Северная Дакота… Сьюзан попыталась расставить все фрагменты имеющейся у нее информации по своим местам. Если Танкадо - Северная Дакота, выходит, он посылал электронную почту самому себе… а это значит, что никакой Северной Дакоты не существует.
