SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EMFIT, the Finnish company known for its electroactive ferroelectret sensors, sensor-integrated systems and the EMFIT QS quantified sleep monitor, expands into new IoT areas with the introduction of the C-Series™ quasi-piezoelectric coaxial cable.
EMFIT’s coaxial design ensures self-shielding for use in high EMI (electromagnetic interference) environments. It has a unique, strong electromechanical response from the cellular ferroelectret polymer, allowing compression, stretch or vibration to generate a charge or voltage proportional to the stress.
The cable can be spliced using standard coaxial splicing techniques. Extremely rugged, EMFIT’s C-Series cable stands up to heavy loads and water. It includes a narrow band of EMFIT’s proprietary electroactive material wound around the inner conductor comprised of 20 AWG stranded silver-plated copper wire. The cable is then braided, and jacketed with an extruded high-density polyethylene. Various lengths are available, with a standard spool of 50 meters.
“EMFIT is now positioned to offer a newly expanded range of IoT applications using the new C-Series cable sensor with embedded signal acquisition electronics, mobile data connectivity, and EMFIT’s real-time over-the-Internet operating server software,” says Heikki Raisanen, EMFIT co-founder and CEO.
EMFIT’s C-Series™ coaxial cable sensing technology works for:
- Vehicle classification and weigh-in-motion (WIM)
- Security, such as fence and perimeter intrusion detection
- Acoustic microphones and hydrophones
- Structural and machine vibration monitoring
EMFIT is the world’s leading manufacturer of electroactive cellular ferroelectret sensor and actuator film for numerous applications, including bedding, paper manufacturing, sports equipment, musical instruments, touch-sensitive human interfaces, smart building and more. EMFIT’s product development has been focused on health tech with current expansion to new IoT applications in a real-time operating sensory platform. Founded in 1990, EMFIT is headquartered in Finland with subsidiaries in USA and China. www.emfit.com, @emfit_qs, facebook.com/EmfitCorp
