Press Release Summary:
- MIROW BRAND operate with a supply voltage as low as +2.3 V with a current draw of only 5 uA
- Allows sensor operation below the energy and voltage level required to cause a spark or ignitions in most explosive environments
- Permit simultaneous use of both a low-voltage and a limited-energy system which eases the construction of intrinsically safe circuits
Original Press Release:
Reduced Operating Power Inductive Proximity Sensors for Increased Safety
Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., Aug. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Mercury United Electronics, Inc. announces the release of their MIROW BRAND Inductive Proximity Sensors. These 2-wire and 3-wire Inductive Proximity sensors have the industry's lowest operating current and voltage.
MIROW BRAND Inductive Proximity Sensors can operate with a supply voltage as low as +2.3V with a current draw of only 5uA.These are the lowest voltage, current, and power levels available on the market. This allows sensor operation below the energy and voltage level required to cause a spark or ignitions in most explosive environments. The MIROW BRAND sensors allow simultaneous use of both a low-voltage and a limited-energy system, which eases the construction of intrinsically safe circuits. A short YouTube video demonstrating the voltage and, current, performance can be viewed at the following link: https://youtu.be/d7wlVLCkx8M.
Intrinsic safety is fundamentally a low energy technique and consequently the voltage, current and power available is restricted. A circuit is described as intrinsically safe if the current and voltage are limited to such an extent that no spark or thermal effect can cause a potentially explosive atmosphere or cause liquids to ignite. The voltage is limited in order to keep the energy of the spark below the ignition energy of the surrounding gas. The thermal effect, i.e., excessively hot surfaces, is prevented by limiting the current.
