MicroPressure Sensors with IoT Ready Interfacing

Written By:

Featuring a 5mm x 5mm package footprint, Honeywell’s MPR MicroPressure sensors are small, ported pressure sensors that can be used in medical, industrial and consumer applications. In addition, these compact pressure sensors are an easy-to-use option with a wide pressure range and IoT ready interfacing. MPR series sensors are available in pressure ranges up to ±2.5 bar. They integrate a 24-bit ADC and an ASIC that provides a calibrated and compensated measurement over an SPI or I2C interface. The sensors are highly accurate but are also specified with a Total Error Band, which goes beyond a typical accuracy spec and provides true performance over the compensated temperature range, allowing for greater interchangeability and less testing and calibration in manufacturing. Multiple gel options, including medical and food grade, allow the sensors to be used with various liquid media and gases. In stock at Mouser.com.

LPG is present in almost every household today either in a cylinder or from piping, but what fraction of these households has devices to detect leaks? Given that many people lose their lives on account of the same, it is surprising that not much has been done. It is actually very simple to build your very own LPG leakage detector and here you will learn how to do just that.

This article explains how one can change the direction and speed of mini DC motor using very simple circuit built using readily and easily available handy components. First we will see how we can change the direction of motor and then we will see how we can vary the speed of DC motor. Then I will explain very simple DC motor controller circuit that changes direction as well as varies the speed of DC motor. So let us start
