Future Electronics Offers Wide Range of Panasonic Sensors for Automotive & Industrial Applications

Montreal, Canada – July 28, 2016 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, has announced immediate shipping availability of Panasonic sensors for automotive and industrial applications.

Panasonic’s PIR Motion Sensors (PaPIRs), offer simplified circuitry with fully integrated sensor design. With only 1micro A current consumption, these no-lead (Pb) eco-friendly sensors are suitable for battery-driven wireless equipment.

Panasonic’s Grid-EYE infrared array sensors are 8×8 (64) pixel array infrared detection sensors, with digital output (I2C) for thermal presence, direction and temperature values. The built-in lens includes a 60-degree viewing angle, and its compact SMD design uses MEMS technology. Applications include digital signage, security, lighting control, kiosks/ATMs, medical imaging, automatic doors, thermal mapping, people counting and robotics.

Panasonic’s light sensor NaPiCa is a visible light sensor (Silicon Photo IC) that detects light and converts into electrical current. It consists of a photodiode and built-in amplifier. And optical filter provides spectral response similar to human eye sensitivity. Applications include LCD backlight control, commercial and residential lighting brightness control, and security lighting.

For air pressure, Panasonic offers high precision gauge pressure sensors available with and without amplifier, and with or without a glass base in DIP terminal. Pressure ratings range from -100 to 1,000kPa. Applications include pressure switches, pneumatic devices, blood pressure monitors, clean rooms, oxygen concentrators, respiratory equipment, and air beds.

Panasonic’s acceleration sensors offer electrostatic capacitance detection, high sensitivity and reliability. 2-Axis and 1-Axis acceleration sensors are available, as well as ceramic package type and stand alone accelerometers.
