High Accuracy, Low Power Digital Temperature Sensor from Measurement Specialties

Press Release   •   Feb 08, 2013 14:46 EST

Hampton, Va.
February 2013
– Measurement Specialties (NASDAQ: MEAS), a leading global
manufacturer in sensor-based measuring of pressure/force, position, vibration,
temperature, humidity and fluid properties, now offers the highly accurate
TSYS01 digital
temperature sensor
that integrates a sensing chip and 24-bit ADC
(analog-to-digital) converter into one component. 

Drawing less than 12.5 µA in a
compact QFN16 surface mount package, the fully-calibrated TSYS01 is easily
incorporated into a variety of industrial control, HVAC/R and heating/cooling

The 4 mm x 4 mm sensor features a
wide operating range of -40°C to +125°C, making it a competitively-priced replacement
for thermistors and NTCs (negative temperature coefficients).

Delivering reliable, precise
operation, the TSYS01 is factory-calibrated to provide an exceptionally high
accuracy of ±0.1°C as well as high measurement resolution. Custom calibration
is also available to meet specific application needs.

The selectable digital output of
either I2C or SPI (serial peripheral interface) enables this
versatile temperature sensor to interface with a microcontroller that
calculates temperature based on the ADC
values and calibration parameters.

Pricing for a TSYS01 is 2 Euros per
unit in quantities of 10K to 50K. 
Delivery time is dependent upon quantity ordered.
