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...

Optimized Solution of Constant Force Spring for Carbon Brush

Optimized Solution of Constant Force Spring for Carbon Brush

Ming Tai Industrial Co., one of leading manufacturers of steel strip springs, develops wide variety of high precision constant force springs for carbon brushes application. It ensures the carbon brush works consistently by dependably exerting constant pressure to increase brush life and to reduce electrical wear. Carbon brushes can also be used for earth return current units to divert static and induced electric currents in a motor shaft away from the bearings, and to protect them from pitting and damage.

Constant force spring keeps carbon brush to rub against...

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.

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...
