Delivering technology for advanced building industrial automation implementations

Transfer Multisort Elektronik (TME) has released two new products that will help customers develop electronic systems with next-generation features and functionality. Its two latest additions will be key in helping to make working and living spaces smarter and safer.

Firstly, there are the Sonoff TX touch switches. Developed for integration into the modern home and office settings, these units are simple to mount. They can be added to new systems or retrofitted into existing ones. Illuminated buttons (up to three on each unit, depending on the model) show the user they have been activated. There is also scope to operate them through mobile devices or voice by connecting to Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant over a Wi-Fi network or LAN infrastructure. The touch switches are offered in two different size formats (86mm x 86mm x 35mm or 120mm x 74mm x 38mm) and run off a 100VAC to 240VAC supply. White and black coloured enclosure versions are offered to fit in with the aesthetics of the surrounding environment they are being installed into.

The company has also strengthened the portfolio of DFRobot gas sensors. These pre-calibrated sensors arrive in a kit, with a base module accompanied by cabling. The cable permits connection to any microcontroller board, including ESP32, Raspberry Pi and Arduino models. Communication with the sensor element can be done through three different interface options. These are analog, I2C or UART. The sensors are optimised for integration into equipment serving many applications where air quality must be constantly monitored due to limited air circulation. Among the places they can be deployed are mines, warehouses and processing plants. Versions can be selected for oxygen (O), carbon monoxide (CO), hydrogen sulfide (H2S), chlorine (CL2), ammonia (NH3), sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), ozone (O3), hydrogen (H2), hydrogen chloride (HCL), hydrogen fluoride (HF) and phosphine (PH3) sensing.

As Adam Kuczyński, co-founder and Business Development Director at TME, states: “Greater levels of automation are now being demanded in both a domestic and an industrial context. Through the high accuracy air monitoring and sophisticated user interface technologies that TME can offer, we are helping to enhance such environments.”
