NEW: Worldwide Smallest Draw-Wire Sensor

NEW: Worldwide Smallest Draw-Wire Sensor

With a weight of only 8 g and a size of just 19 x 19 mm, the Micro-Epsilon wireSENSOR MT19 is used for displacement and distance measurements with a measuring range of 40 mm.

Enabling wire accelerations of up to 60 g, the sensor is particularly used in applications where high dynamics are required (crash tests, simulators or test benches). The miniature design enables installation into very small spaces. Through-bores in the housing support easy mounting.

High Precision Mechanical Position Sensor

High Precision Mechanical Position Sensor

With the new MP600 mechanical sensor family, Microprecision Electronics presents a low voltage position switch with NC and NO contacts. The travel between the two contacts is factory set at a distance ranging from  0.3mm to 1.5mm.

This allows two position detection without hysteresis and with a repeatability of less than 5µm.  One single sensor can be used to control high and low limits of a process, or home position and overrun position of a linear movement. 

Other Key Features are:

Temperature Range -40°C...

Power Spring for Draw Wire Encoder Application

Power Spring for Draw Wire Encoder Application

Power Springs are formed by winding a strip of material on an arbor and into a case or retaining ring to create a compact power source. Power spring features
retractable, tensioning and loading function. When it comes position movement and high adjustment of machine and appliance, precise positioning performance and easily operating are required at first priority. 

In medical devices field, Ming Tai's power spring had been employed in Draw-wire Encoder for positioning of MRI and x-ray machines, which has gained great performance.

Limit Switch with Integrated LED Status Indication

Limit Switch with Integrated LED Status Indication

Microprecision Electronics SA now introduced its MP100/200 series microswitches with an optional integrated LED indicator light. 

These microswitches with integrated LED status indicator have been designed for use at 24V in industrial automation applications. They allow a simple, visual control of the switching function, which can be very cumbersome to perform, in particular when the switch is mounted far away from the connected controller. Also, a broken cable will be instantly recognisable. In addition, the LED facilitates the intuitive calibration...

New Models for uEye CP Camera Family from IDS

New Models for uEye CP Camera Family from IDS

IDS has integrated the high-resolution 12 MP IMX226 rolling shutter sensor into the uEye CP camera family, giving increased resolution, speed and sensitivity. The new models are available with GigE or USB3 interfaces and are available from May.

Thanks to the BSI ("back-side-illumination") technology of the SONY STARVIS series of sensors, the IMX226 is perfect for tasks that require optimal results even in low light conditions. It delivers extremely low-noise images and is therefore ideally suited for applications in areas such as microscopy, logistics and traffic monitoring.

The New SWaP-C Neutrino LC

The New SWaP-C Neutrino LC

Flir System cooled midwave infrared (MWIR) cameras have long held a tactical advantage over uncooled longwave infrared (LWIR) cameras in many airborne and ground-based missions.

While cooled MWIR cameras are highly sensitive, they are also larger, heavier, require more power, and cost more than uncooled LWIR cameras. Recent advancements in High Operating Temperature (HOT) MWIR technology open up new possibilities.
