Digital temperature sensor from ams with higher accuracy for cold storage
ams introduced the AS6200C, a digital temperature sensor IC which offers highly accurate measurements in the temperature range -20°C to +10°C for use in applications such as refrigerators and data loggers in cold-chain storage equipment to meet demanding targets for system-level accuracy.
The AS6200C’s measurements are accurate to ±0.2°C between -20°C and 10°C, the temperature range over which storage equipment for perishable goods operates. The sensor’s accuracy is guaranteed over the device’s supply voltage range of 1.8V to 3.6V.
AS6200C includes a sensor front end, 12-bit ADC, and digital logic in a small WL-CSP package. The digital output is available over an I2C interface to microcontroller. The device also does on-board digital signal processing saving the user from calibration, and its linearized output requires no compensation by an external microcontroller.
The AS6200C is designed for use in equipment for storing and transporting food, pharmaceuticals, flowers and other perishable goods, as well as in domestic and commercial refrigerators. It is very well suited to data loggers that comply with the EN12830:1999 class 1 standard.
The AS6200C is available in production volumes. Unit pricing is €0.60 in order quantities of 1,000 units.
An evaluation board for the AS6200C digital temperature sensor is available from the ams ICdirect online store. For sample requests or more technical information, go to www.ams.com/temperature-sensor/AS6200C.
