MCC DAQ HATS: Hardware Attached on Top

MCC DAQ HATS: Hardware Attached on Top

In order to bring professional-quality measurement products to the Raspberry Pi platform, Measurement Computing has released a family of HATs (Hardware Attached on Top) specifically for professional Test and Measurement applications.

These devices provide data acquisition features in a small, stackable format with the same quality, comprehensive documentation and support MCC has provided for nearly 30 years.

The MCC 118 allows users to measure 8 channels of 12-bit voltage data at an overall throughput of 100 kS/s. The MCC 134 features...

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...

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.

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...

High-Performance Inductive Displacement Measuring System

High-Performance Inductive Displacement Measuring System

The Micro-Epsilon eddyNCDT 3060 inductive measurement system is based on eddy currents and enables fast, precise displacement measurements in industrial environments. Based on ease of use and smart signal processing, this non-contact system defines a new performance class in inductive displacement measurement. More than 400 sensor models can be combined with the eddyNCDT 3060.

In contrast to conventional inductive sensors, displacement sensors based on eddy currents stand out due to their high accuracy, bandwidth and temperature stability. Furthermore, this measuring...

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.

Ground choke

New variants of the C20F...

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...

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.

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...
