Omron to showcase sensors for smart homes and cities at Electronica

Omron Electronic Components Europe is to demonstrate a new range of IoT ready sensors for digital signage, building automation and factory automation at next month’s electronica conference at Messe Munich between 13-16 November.

The Omron team will be on hand in hall B3 at Stand: 560 showing how its latest sensors are creating opportunities for both manned and unmanned buildings to become automated. This includes the newly released USB version of their successful 2JCIE Environmental Sensor which gives seven different measurements in one unit.

Commenting, Gabriele Fulco, European product marketing manager of Omron Electronic Components Europe said: “Such sensors are making it increasingly easy for both the direct and indirect environmental factors affecting a facility, to be monitored over the IoT. Sensors paired with cloud based solutions allow for automated response procedures to be put in place based on set thresholds.”

At this year’s electronica at Messe Munich, visitors will be able to see how sensors like the Omron Human Vision Component (HVC) module, which recognises a variety of facial recognition functions and the 2JCIE-BL01 sensor, that measures multiple factors in the localised environment, can be applied to create autonomous, intelligent, smart buildings.

Sensors displayed by Omron in hall B3 at Stand: 560 include:

  • HVC-P2 B5T – Facial recognition sensor that offers ten key image sensing functions: detection of a human face, hand or body, face recognition, gender detection and estimations of age, mood, facial pose, gaze and blink.
  • 2JCIE-BL01/BU01 – Environmental sensors which measure temperature, humidity, light, barometric pressure, noise and acceleration in a single compact module. Comes with embedded memory for data logging and Bluetooth connectivity.
  • B5W-LD Dust Sensor – Able to detect particles as small as 0.5 micron, it also features a high air throughput of around six times that of established alternatives, giving improved sensitivity of response to changes in the environment.
  • Selection of MEMS sensors providing real time measurement data in a miniature controlled environment, such as two different variations of D6F flow sensor, 2SMPB barometric pressure sensor, D6T thermal sensor and D7S vibration sensor.
  • TOF sensor – The TOF (Time of Flight) sensor generates a thermal image of the environment, providing coloured feedback on the depth of field.

Omron’s expert staff will be available in hall B3 at Stand: 560 to answer any questions and demonstrate the above sensors and more that have been designed for digital signage, building automation and factory automation.
