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.

New variants with ground choke

New variants with ground choke

SCHURTER extends its successful power entry module series C20F with versions including a ground line choke, designed for suppressing high-frequency interference on the ground conductor. Additionally, the new variants have a bigger X-capacitor for better symmetrical attenuation.

The C20F filter series combines an IEC C20 appliance inlet with a high-quality mains filter. The particularly wide metal flange makes contact with the housing surface over a large area, thus enabling optimum filtering and shielding.

uEye ACP: Individual Cameras Based on a Modular Principle

uEye ACP: Individual Cameras Based on a Modular Principle

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.

Micro Switches & Actuators

Micro Switches & Actuators

Microprecision introduced a new range of microswitches MP83, for general purpose use. Versatile, these snap action switches are IP40 protected. They are complementary to the MP300 range of pre-cabled switches with IP67 protection. Economic, this range is designed to operate in temperatures from -60°C to +130°C. They are UL/EN certified with a power rating of 250VAC/16A, with a standard activation force of 0.8N. If required, a high force variant is available and allows the use of a telescopic actuator, with a pin or roller...

GO series - A Breath of Fresh Air in Power Electronics

LEM International GO series

A fast measurement speed, achieved within tight cost and size constraints while integrating the primary conductor in SO packages without compromising the necessary insulation, is often as critical as the other high performances for current measurement in motor-drive applications.

A unique sensor with an integrated primary conductor achieves optimum temperature accuracy, measuring from -40 to +125 °C in a surface mounted SO8 or SO16 package. 

10-30 A nominal current Better than 1.3 % accuracy @ +25°C  Differential Hall...
