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...

Worldwide unique laser sensors

Worldwide unique laser sensors

Micro-Epsilon's optoNCDT 1320/1420 laser sensors based on the triangulation measuring principle perform non-contact displacement, distance and position measurements. Due to their low weight combined with compact size, the optoNCDT 1320/1420 sensors can be easily integrated into restricted installation spaces and are ideally suitable for applications where high accelerations occur e.g. on the robot arm or in pick-and-place machines. The high-performance optical system projects the small light spot sharply onto the measurement object which...

Save Time and Hassle with One Integrated Solution for Control & Automation

Save Time and Hassle with One Integrated Solution for Control & Automation

Building new machines for today’s factories requires sophisticated control and automation that can only be delivered through multiple solutions and components – including a PLC, HMI, and VFD (Variable Frequency Drive). As all components must be integrated, selecting the right combination is crucial to the efficiency and success of the machine development project.

Why risk multi-vendor complexity?

Researching different products from multiple companies can be a major drain on time as well as confusing, with different offers and delivery schedules. And, when you have questions...

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.

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.

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...

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.
