Press Release Summary:
Measuring 1.95 mm dia x 3.6 mm long, SQ-MIN-200 Omnidirectional Tilt and Vibration Sensor offers motion detection to size-constrained devices such as RFID tags, GPS trackers, pet monitors, Bluetooth ear pieces, wrist watches, and hearing aids. Micromechanical sensor operates over industrial temperature range and draws less current than self-discharge of CR2032 coin cell. Able to fit on standard 2-pad SMT landing, sensor enables active motion detection to last 20 years on one battery.
Original Press Release:
SignalQuest Introduces Omnidirectional Tilt and Vibration Sensor with Ultra Low Profile (1.95 mm dia x 3.6 mm Long) and Nano-Power Operation (100 nA Full Active).
Lebanon, NH - SignalQuest Inc. today introduced the SQ-MIN-200 Omnidirectional Tilt and Vibration Sensor, the second product in a new line of extremely low profile, nano-power, micromechanical sensors. With industry leading form factor, industrial temperature rating and intrinsic nano-power design, the SQ-MIN series offers motion detection to a range of size-constrained devices such as RFID tags, GPS trackers, pet monitors, Bluetooth ear pieces, wrist watches, and hearing aids. Measuring at just 1.95 mm in diameter by 3.6 mm in length, the SQ-MIN package will fit on a standard 2- pad SMT landing. Following the success of the SQ-SEN series tilt and vibration sensors, the SQ-MIN will make ultra long battery life and movement based functionality accessible for extremely small device applications. With a current demand below the self discharge of a CR2032 coin cell, the SQ-MIN allows products needing active motion detection to last 20 years on a single battery.
The SQ-SEN tilt and vibration sensor series was the first to bring US manufacturing standards at globally competitive prices to high volume mechanical sensor markets. The SQ-SEN-200 omnidirectional movement sensor has emerged as the recognized choice in RFID, GPS, and microprocessor "wake up" applications.
Guided by a culture of integrity, passion, and persistence, SignalQuest is a world leader in precision microsensor design and manufacturing. Core products include electronic sensors that measure tilt angle, acceleration, shock, vibration, and movement as well as application specific inertial measurement devices. The company supports designers with application expertise and custom integration to reduce time to market. SignalQuest's products carry worldwide patents and are manufactured in the USA with state of the art, fully automated production lines, which provide unmatched levels of quality and consistency.
