TE Connectivity’s new smart current sensors combine 5 products into 1 lightweight package

Programmable sensor offers versatility for commercial aerospace and military engineers

HARRISBURG, Pa.  – June 11, 2019 – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, released its new, multifunction HARTMAN smart current sensor for commercial aircraft and military ground vehicles. TE’s HARTMAN smart current sensor is programmable, allowing for up to five different combinations in a single 10-pin configurable package. By combining multiple features into one part, this sensor reduces the need for additional protective devices, ultimately helping to lower costs.

The HARTMAN smart current sensor allows users to maintain their trip curve throughout the temperature range while giving both current status and trip status of the system. Users can also disable the trip curve when needed. This multifunction sensor offers the following trip curve features:

  • 200 AMP thermal breaker trip times
  • 300 AMP thermal breaker trip times
  • 400 AMP thermal breaker trip times
  • Reverse load detection/trip
  • Turn off thermal breaker

“We have invested a lot of effort in adding features that enhance the HARTMAN smart current sensor’s performance and safety,” said Neil Chitwood, product manager for TE’s Aerospace, Defense and Marine division. “That includes giving the sensor the same trip curve characteristics as the thermal breaker, in addition to adding built-in overload detection status, overcurrent protection on coil current, and on/off thermal breaker capabilities.”

HARTMAN smart current sensors are designed and built to DO-160G. Applications suited for these sensors include power distribution, load shedding, reverse current protection and circuit protection. They are designed for use in commercial jets, business jets, helicopters and military ground vehicles.

Use of Advanced Sensors in Smart Industry Applications

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and ST Microelectronics

In industrial systems, sensors can give us real-time information about the condition and operation critical machinery. By monitoring vibration, temperature, and other factors, we can get early warning of failures and do predictive maintenance - avoiding costly downtime. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Manuel Cantone of ST Microelectronics about the SensorTile Wireless Industrial Node - an integrated solution that makes industrial monitoring a snap.
