Honeywell Introduces NBP Series Basic Board Mount Pressure Sensors


High Quality and High Resolution in a Cost-effective Solution

MINNEAPOLIS, July 10, 2012 - Honeywell (NYSE: HON) announced today the release of its new Basic Board Mount Pressure Sensors, NBP Series, the newest offering in its board mount pressure sensor product portfolio. These are a cost-effective, basic performance, mV output, unamplified, uncompensated, high quality and high resolution solution for customers seeking high-volume, economical board mount pressure sensors.

Honeywell's NBP Series is ideal for customers who want to do their own compensation, calibration, and amplification to make use of the maximum resolution of the bare sensor output, leveraging a custom algorithm required for their application. The NBP Series offers the value you expect from Honeywell, including: manufacturing excellence, prompt prototype delivery, availability throughout the product development cycle, and superior application support.

"Honeywell's Basic Board Mount Pressure Sensor is an exciting new product," said Jacky Leff, global product marketing manager for Honeywell Sensing and Control. "It offers our customers everything they need in an economical basic board mount pressure sensing solution: high quality, high reliability, and product availability."

The NBP Series can be used in a wide range of applications. Potential medical applications include pressure monitoring for wound therapy machines, hospital beds, oxygen concentrators, and blood pressure monitors. Potential industrial applications include HVAC transmitters, air movement control, environmental control, level indicators, leak detection, industrial control, and other commercial applications.

With more than 100 years of manufacturing and engineering excellence, Honeywell designed this device to Six Sigma standards. The NBP Series features a durable design that operates over the full temperature range of -40 °C to 150 °C [-40 °F to 302 °F]. Numerous packaging styles, pressure ranges, housings, gel coating, and
porting help to meet specific application needs and simplify integration. The sensor's compact package size (as small as 7 mm x 7 mm [0.276 in x 0.276 in]) is smaller than most competitive board mount pressure sensors, allowing for easy placement on crowded printed circuit boards or in small devices.

Honeywell Sensing and Control's website offers configuration options, product specifications, technical materials, and more to assist customers in their application needs.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
