Precision displacement, distance and position measurement under pressure

Precision displacement, distance and position measurement under pressure

The eddyNCDT 3005 from Micro-Epsilon is a new, powerful eddy current measurement system for fast, high precision displacement measurements. Due to its pressure-resistant, thermally stable and compact design, the eddyNCDT 3005 is ideal for machine integration.

Non-contact eddy current sensors from Micro-Epsilon are designed for extremely high precision measurement of displacement, distance, position, oscillation and vibration, etc. to micrometer accuracies. Pressure, dirt, oil or high temperatures have almost no influence on measurement precision. This eddy current measurement system...

Patented retention system for pressure hoses

Patented retention system for pressure hoses

The energy contained within a pressure hose, in case of disconnection from the fitting, can be very dangerous to anyone or anything in its vicinity.

The patented system STOPFLEX of OP srl, has been designed to arrest the trajectory of the flexible hose, thus avoiding that the energy contained inside may trigger a frightening "whip effect".

The cable secures the hose to the plant protecting both the operators and components.

The bend, equipped with a rubber gasket, remains perfectly secured, simultaneously allowing the hose to swell according...

SMD Solid-state Fuse for the Most Demanding Applications

SMD Solid-state Fuse for the Most Demanding Applications

SCHURTER's new High Current Fuse, HCF, is an extremely robust SMD fuse, designed using solid-state / thin-film technology. The HCF is especially suited for use in particularly harsh applications, where the reliable interrupt of high currents is critical.

SCHURTER's experience, acquired from the development of solid-state fuses for the space industry, and the cooperation with ESA, have led to the development of the HCF. The new HCF has a similar structure as the two ESA-certified types SCHURTER MGA-S and HCSF. Fuses used in Space applications meet the...

More Power in the Hand

More Power in the Hand

The new 2668 … CR DC motor from FAULHABER offers considerably more power than comparable drives, and is the most powerful copper-graphite commutated DC-micromotor in its size class on the market. Thanks to a bigger NdFeB magnet and a high copper content in the winding, it supplies a rated torque of 70 mNm. As a result, it weighs just 189 g with a diameter of 26 mm. Furthermore, it reaches full power extremely quickly with its high pulse torque. The 2668 … CR is thus especially well suited for professional high-performance tools such as pruning shears...

Industrial Cameras: Maximum Flexibility due to App-based Approach

Industrial Cameras: Maximum Flexibility due to App-based Approach

IDS NXT – which is the name of the novel vision app-based industrial cameras from IDS – can be explained best by a smartphone analogy: Without apps, smartphones would be ordinary mobile phones. They turn them into versatile devices that perform a great number of helpful tasks. IDS transfers this principle into the world of image processing.
The newly developed, freely programmable platform is no longer restricted to specific tasks. Users can install various different vision apps on their IDS NXT devices and can even develop individual apps with the help of the IDS Software Development...

Massive weight reduction of the high current filters FMER SOL and FMCC SOL

Massive weight reduction of the high current filters FMER SOL and FMCC SOL

SCHURTER reduces the weight of the high current filters FMER SOL and FMCC SOL. The successful AC and DC filter series with currents up to 2500 A have big housings and heavy weights. The product weight was significantly reduced with an optimized potting compound. In the FMER SOL series, filters with a rated current higher than 250 A are able to benefit from this weight reduction, while in the FMCC SOL series all variants do.

The FMER SOL filters are designed for rated currents from 25 A to 2300 A at 55 °C ambient temperature, and voltages up to 1200 VDC. The filter...

High Temperature Endoscope

High Temperature Endoscope

Resolve Optics has supplied several high temperature Short Wavelength Infrared (SWIR) endoscopic viewing systems to enable inspection of the blades in a gas turbine while in operation. To enable inspection during gas turbine operation required that the SWIR endoscope had to operate up to 950° C at the tip with 150PSI pressure and be able to withstand severe vibration. To overcome the negative effects of high temperature and pressure – Resolve Optics created a novel design which allowed introduction of cool air at high pressure at the mid-section of the endoscope....
