Sensata Launches New Low Noise Solid State Relays

Sensata Launches New Low Noise Solid State Relays

Sensata Technologies announced the availability of the new Low Noise (LN) series of panel mounted solid state relays designed for use in a wide range of consumer and industrial systems and products where precise power control, long life, reliability and reduced levels of electromagnetic noise are required.

Instead of using moving components as mechanical power relays do, solid state relays rely on silicon-controlled rectifier technology which allows SSRs to provide quieter operation (no clicking), longer life, as well as more precise switching control.

Advantages of Constant Force Spring Applied to Carbon Brush

Advantages of Constant Force Spring Applied to Carbon Brush

Ming Tai Industrial Co., one of the leaders of total solution of steel strip spring, has developed a wide variety of constant force springs for carbon brush application.

In rail vehicles, carbon brush used to constant force springs are widely applied to alternators, auxiliary motors, blower motors, traction motors, slip ring and earth return current units. In wind turbine, it can be applied to slip ring, grounding systems, brush motors as well. 

Constant force spring dependably exert constant pressure to keeps carbon brush to work steady. It...

Monitoring High-Speed Thermal Events and Fast-Moving Targets

Monitoring High-Speed Thermal Events and Fast-Moving Targets

The FLIR A6750 SLS longwave camera is the ideal choice for high-speed thermal events and fast-moving targets. It offers extremely short integration times and windowed frame rates above 4,000 Hz, so you can freeze motion or achieve accurate temperature measurements on moving subjects.

The 640 x 512-pixel IR resolution and high sensitivity produce crisp imagery, well suited to electronics inspections, scientific research, and more.

IDS NXT Ocean – Grab, Label, Train, Run AI

IDS NXT Ocean – Grab, Label, Train, Run AI

Artificial intelligence opens up new fields of application for camera technology and image processing. It can be used, for example, to classify fruit varieties or to identify damaged parts (e.g. apples with marks or colour deviations). 

To cover all possible variances with classical image processing would be very time-consuming and costly. With artificial intelligence, however, these challenges can be solved in no time at all. With IDS NXT ocean, there is now a user-friendly complete solution for industrial applications.

Long Range and High Temperature Measurement

Long Range and High Temperature Measurement

The high-performance FLIR RS8500 thermal camera combines a mid-wave infrared detector and telescope in a single weatherproof housing built for measurement accuracy of long-range and high-temperature targets in harsh environments.

The RS8500 allows for superior measurement accuracy through a MWIR detector, which provides high-definition, large-format thermal images with the ability to deliver data up to 180 frames per second, coupled with a high-resolution, 120-1200-millimeter continuous metric zoom lens.

This new MWIR thermal camera provides the ability...

uEye ACP: Configure Individual, Modular Cameras

uEye ACP: Configure Individual, Modular Cameras

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.

Engineer’s Tips for Application of Variable Force Springs and Variable Torque Spring

Engineer’s Tips for Application of Variable Force Springs and Variable Torque Spring

Variable force spring and variable torque spring are very similar with constant force spring and constant torque spring. But we diversify the radian by winding the steel strip into a coil. Therefore, it can unfold negative gradient, positive gradient compounded in a spring. Here are some relations between load (force or torque) and stroke that can be used on specific occasion.

Pen Type Drug Injector Application

The spring exerts constant force to keep the drug flow fixed, preventing the patient from feeling uncomfortable when applying it. It features stretch force in end...

Polarisation Reveals Details That Were “Invisible”

Polarisation Reveals Details That Were “Invisible”

A polarisation sensor makes details visible that remain hidden to other image sensors. IDS now offers the IMX250MZR 5 MP sensor from SONY with integrated on-pixel polarisers in the uEye CP camera family. The models ensure better object detection in cases of low contrast or light reflections. They also provide a convenient way of detecting fine scratches on surfaces or the stress distribution within transparent objects.

Both USB3 Vision and GigE Vision are available as interfaces. Using polarisation filters, the sensor generates an image with four polarisation directions...

Sound & Vibration DAQ HAT for Raspberry Pi

Sound & Vibration DAQ HAT for Raspberry Pi

Measurement Computing adds a new member to its series of DAQ HATs - professional DAQ modules designed for the Raspberry Pi® platform. MCC 172 is a dual-channel module for acquiring IEPE sensor data.

MCC 172 accepts direct connection of piezoelectric sound & vibration sensors according to the popular IEPE standard. Data can be sampled simultaneously with 24-bit resolution and sampling rates up to 51.2 kS/s per channel. No additional signal conditioning will be required for acquiring aliasing-free signals up to 23 kHz. For higher channel count multiple DAQ HATs...
