Sensor Uses 'Charge Transfer Technique'

Pittsburgh, Pa.— QProx QTM1001 is said to be the first commercially available OEM sensor to use the new "charge transfer technique." This technique uses digital pulses instead of timing constants, or radio-frequency signals, to provide robust sensing. Qprox sensors make use of simple, customer-supplied sensing electrodes of almost any physical shape, connected to the module by up to 50 f...

Pittsburgh, Pa.— QProx QTM1001 is said to be the first commercially available OEM sensor to use the new "charge transfer technique." This technique uses digital pulses instead of timing constants, or radio-frequency signals, to provide robust sensing. Qprox sensors make use of simple, customer-supplied sensing electrodes of almost any physical shape, connected to the module by up to 50 ft of coaxial cable. A large number of possible settings are programmed via a patent-pending "cloning" method, where settings are copied from information stored in the E2S development board.
