Macnica to announce new IoT/M2M sensor shield has contactless strain sensor

Macnica today announces development of a new IoT/M2M sensor shield "Mpression CiP-1" which has contactless strain sensor designed based on inductive sensor technology. CiP-1 expects to be used as environment sensor shield. The inductive sensor has been applied to contactless strain sensor which can check the load distortion of metal plane or the screw loose. When problem is detected, user can analyze why the issue is happened from environmental parameter information captured by Ambient Light, Temperature and Humidity Sensors on CiP-1.

CiP-1 has Texas Instruments' inductive sensor (part number : LDC1612), ambient light sensor (OPT3001), temperature/humidity sensor (HDC1000) and contactless temperature sensor (TMP007) on board.

CiP-1 plugs on TI' evaluation development platform, CC3200MOD Launchpad as a sensor shield and the sensor data can be monitored through Wi-Fi network. Also cloud connection has been already conducted on Amazon Web Service. (Figure.2) The captured data by CiP-1 with CC3200MOD LaunchPad can be transmitted to cloud system and the data is visualized on AWS.
