Hydrophone – Underwater Sound Transducers/Sensors

Hydrophone is a microphone designed for recording or listening to underwater sound. Most hydrophones are based on piezoelectric transducers that generate electricity when subjected to a pressure change of sound wave (acoustic energy). Hydrophone helps in detecting or monitoring sound under water. Applications of hydrophones include aquarium audio products, Hydrophone networks for SeaSound effects analysis, marine survey, sea navigation systems, deep ocean research, sea-phone, underwater ultrasonic transducers, and sound detection in liquids.

Force sensors measure the applied force from the proportional deformation of a spring element: the larger the force, the more this element deforms. However, the frequency range of this type of sensor is limited by this element having to be sufficiently elastic to undergo large-amplitude deflections reflecting the load. Force Sensor Construction and Operation Usually […]

Geophones are ground displacement sensors/transducers used for seismic energy measurements. Geophone is also called as seismic geophones or Seismometers. They are designed for measurement of earthquakes, machine vibrations, oil exploration, mining, etc. Wireless geophones are also used is in the application of Remote Ground Sensors (RGS) incorporated in Unattended Ground Sensor (UGS) Systems.

Fluxgate compass is an electromagnetic navigational instrument for determining direction relative to the Earth’s magnetic poles. It consists of a magnetized pointer (usually marked on the North end) free to align itself with Earth’s magnetic field. A compass is any magnetically sensitive device capable of indicating the direction of the magnetic north of a planet’s magnetosphere. Fluxgate compass is used as navigation instrument for aircrafts, ships, boats, and other land vehicles. Fluxgate compass is also used for land surveying systems.

Variometer is also known as a Rate of Climb and Descent Indicator (RCDI), Rate-of-Climb Indicator, Vertical Speed Indicator (VSI), or Vertical Velocity Indicator (VVI). Variometer is one of the flight instruments in an aircraft used to inform the pilot of the near instantaneous (rather than averaged) vertical speed (rate of descent or climb) of the aircraft. Rate of Climb and Descent Indicator (RCDI) is usually called as Vertical Speed Indicator (VSI) in powered flights, and Variometer in gliders.

Chipless sensors have no onboard chip, they require no active power and can be manufactured at a very low cost. The data received by the reader is purely an analog signal representing the electromagnetic response produced by the material active layer and the external stimulus (such as temperature, pressure, humidity, PH, etc).
