Newark, a division of Avnet, has increased its range of high-quality sensor products with a new particulate matter laser sensor from Panasonic Industry Europe GmbH.
The SN-GCJA5 is designed for air quality monitoring, air conditioners, building automation, smart homes, HVAC, air purifiers, internet of things (IoT) devices, test and measurement and environmental monitoring.
The particulate matter sensor features an optical sensor assembly to provide reliable operation over a long lifetime, detecting particles as small as 0.3 microns. The technology allows the sensor to provide a fast response when detecting smoke, environmental dust and other unwanted dangerous pollutants.
Other features include a high precision laser diode for high accuracy, sensitivity and quick response, auto calibration function, optimized air pathway structure that minimizes dust accumulation to avoid tracking for electrical safety and onboard microcomputer to analyze wave profile and outputs for mass density through I2C and UART interface.
