Mouser adds TE Connectivity’s AmbiMate sensor module MS4 series

Mouser Electronics has announced that it now stocks the AmbiMate sensor module MS4 series from TE Connectivity (TE). The module incoporates four core sensors on a single PCB assembly, designed for easy integration in a variety of host products in building automation, lighting, and smart home applications.

AmbiMate sensor modules are pre-engineered and assembled, allowing manufacturers to devote valuable design resources to other important tasks.

TE’s AmbiMate sensor module MS4 series include sensors for motion, light, temperature, and humidity. There are optional additions which include sensors for sound, CO2, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The modules offer multiple attachment options to easily integrate the pre-assembled PCB into the host board. The MS4 series sensor modules share a common seven position connection, allowing a single PCB footprint to accommodate every available sensor configuration, says Mouser.

The sensor modules are suitable for building automation applications where environmental data can inform product decisions. Engineers can use one or more modules to capture VOC and CO2 concentrations and evaluate air quality. TE’s AmbiMate sensor modules with an integrated microphone can augment motion detection by listening for sound events. A network of modules can detect occupancy, humidity, temperature, and light levels, allowing building controllers to adjust indoor lighting, HVAC equipment, energy management, and other environmental controls in specific zones of a building.

Mouser claims to stock the world’s widest selection of the latest semiconductors and electronic components for the newest design projects. The Mouser Electronics website offers advanced search methods to help customers quickly locate inventory. Mouser.com also houses data sheets, supplier-specific reference designs, application notes, technical design information, and engineering tools.

For over 75 years, TE Connectivity has produced connectivity and sensor solutions, that are proven in the harshest environments. The company has enabled advances in transportation, industrial applications, medical technology, energy, data communications, and the home.
