KEMET Advances Its Latest Environmental Sensor Solutions for Industrial Applications


Reading time ( words)

KEMET, a subsidiary of Yageo Corporation, a leading global supplier of electronic components, continues to strengthen its solutions for industrial applications with its range of environmental PIR sensors. By utilizing the pyroelectric effect, these thin-film PZT sensors have both high sensitivity and fast response times to ensure rapid and accurate detection of gas, flame, motion, food and organic compounds for industrial automation, lighting, power generation and distribution, among many other applications.

Built with hybrid micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) technology, these high-quality environmental sensors are packaged in a small surface-mount device (SMD) for use in portable and battery-powered detectors. Their capacity for low power consumption, low maintenance, and low sensitivity to mechanical and thermal shock allows for stable performance and a lifespan of up to 15 years, making them ideal for small, smart, or IoT (Internet of Things) devices in industrial, consumer, automotive and medical applications. Compatibility with industry-standard I2C communication enables plug-and-play connectivity to microcontrollers making these sensors easy to configure, tune, and calibrate.

KEMET’s environmental PIR sensors, which use the standard semiconductor manufacturing process, are well-suited for industrial applications. These components are positioned for growth in the environmental sensor market. According to a 2020 report from 360 Market Updates, the global environmental sensor market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.4 percent from 2020 to 2025 and reach USD 1550.1 million by 2025.

KEMET’s range of environmental sensors is available immediately via KEMET distributors.

Mr. Laminate Tells All: Who Would Like a Mil-Spec Audit?

01/05/2016 | Doug Sober, Essex Technologies Group
I remember when IPC-4101 was completed and released in December 1997 and the question came up “should IPC create a policeman program to enforce it?” To a person that helped create IPC-4101, absolutely no one wanted such an audit program ever again. Including me and the IPC staff liaisons. Maybe we should have rethought that position.
