About sensor calibration

By mvuilleu, in Measures, august 31,2012.

All of our USB sensor modules perform their measurement with the help of digital sensor chips, which are factory calibrated. It's our recipe to guaranty the announced precision of our modules, even when the sensors are moved away. However, we have recently introduced in all our sensor modules an additional adjustment function, allowing your to perform a correction to the measures on the fly. So, what's the need to correct a measure if it is already good? Doesn't this recalibration risk to reduce the measure precision rather than to enhance it?

One of the most common uses of the Yocto-Temperature is to monitor the temperature in server rooms. Many customers have asked us about applications using our modules under Windows and able to send warning emails in case of temperature increase. To the point that we decided to create one, just like this, because we are really nice people :-)

MK802 and IPhone: a fireworks remote control.

By martinm, in Internet of Things and Tiny PC, august 02,2012.

In Switzerland, the first of August is national holiday. It's also the opportunity for every one to play with pyrotechnic devices: using fireworks is strictly forbidden the rest of the year. No need to say, during that night every one is having a field day. At Yoctopuce we were wondering if we could fire fireworks using an iPhone. Well this was an opportunity for us to try.
