MP600 Sensors - Sensing 2 Positions within Microns

MP600 Sensors - Sensing 2 Positions within Microns

Microprecision introduced a family of “swiss made” sensors for position detection. The new MP600 series of mechanical sensors very accurately detects two positions within a single, compact electromechanical component. Two independent commutations can sense two previously defined positions to within a few microns of accuracy.

The distance between the two positions can be set specifically for each application, between 0.3mm and 1.5mm. The fixed NC and NO contacts activate with no measurable hysteresis.

Repeatability is less than...

New variants with ground choke

New variants with ground choke

SCHURTER extends its successful power entry module series C20F with versions including a ground line choke, designed for suppressing high-frequency interference on the ground conductor. Additionally, the new variants have a bigger X-capacitor for better symmetrical attenuation.

The C20F filter series combines an IEC C20 appliance inlet with a high-quality mains filter. The particularly wide metal flange makes contact with the housing surface over a large area, thus enabling optimum filtering and shielding.

MP600 Limit Sensors - Detect 2 Positions within Microns

MP600 Limit Sensors - Detect 2 Positions within Microns

Microprecision presents a family of ultra-precise mechanical position sensors “made in Switzerland”. The new series of mechanical sensors MP600 detects two discrete positions in a single compact and pre-wired component, sealed to IP67.

Without measurable hysteresis, the two independent commutations (NC + NO) have a repeatable precision within just a few microns. The distance between them can be set specifically for each application, between 0.3mm and 1.5mm. The MP600 operates in a temperature range between -40 and +130 ° C.

uEye ACP: Individual Cameras Based on a Modular Principle

uEye ACP: Individual Cameras Based on a Modular Principle

Custom-made products are required whenever standard industrial cameras reach their limits. Especially for small projects, however, development and cost expenditure are often disproportionately high. Thanks to its flexible modular design principle, the new uEye ACP concept from IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH enables individual, economical solutions to be created – even from single units. With just a few clicks, users can put together their own individual board level camera model using an online configurator and request a quote directly from the manufacturer.
