Non-Destructive Testing of Advanced Materials

Non-Destructive Testing of Advanced Materials

Thermal imaging is a trusted non-destructive technique which can detect internal defects in advanced materials through target excitation and the observation of thermal differences on the sample surface.

The FLIR A6750sc SLS thermal imaging camera from FLIR Systems comes standard with Lock-In, Transient, and Pulse capabilities enabling you to undertake meticulous Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) or stress mapping of advanced materials, resolving temperature differences as low as 1 mK.

5G is Advancing Autonomous Driving

5G is Advancing Autonomous Driving

5G will have an undoubtable impact on the innovation of autonomous vehicles. Its ultra-low latency will play a critical role in automotive connectivity, its fast and reliable data connection will allow you to download up-to-date 3D maps in near proximity and it also ensures that all mission-critical wireless services seamlessly work up to 500 km/h (310 mph).

5G is the future of autonomous driving and autonomous applications. Discover more by reading our latest white paper!

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...

High Precision Mechanical Position Sensor

High Precision Mechanical Position Sensor

With the new MP600 mechanical sensor family, Microprecision Electronics presents a low voltage position switch with NC and NO contacts. The travel between the two contacts is factory set at a distance ranging from  0.3mm to 1.5mm.

This allows two position detection without hysteresis and with a repeatability of less than 5µm.  One single sensor can be used to control high and low limits of a process, or home position and overrun position of a linear movement. 

Other Key Features are:

Temperature Range -40°C...

Unmatched Precision in Distance and Thickness Measurements with Confocal Sensors

Unmatched Precision in Distance and Thickness Measurements with Confocal Sensors

Confocal chromatic sensors provide the latest modern technology for displacement, distance, position and thickness measurements combined with maximum precision and high speed. A large range of sensors and different controller interfaces open versatile fields of application, e.g. in the semiconductor industry, glass industry, medical engineering and plastics production.

Especially when measuring on reflecting and shiny targets, confocal chromatic sensors provide high accuracy whereas laser sensors are overdriven due to the high light intensity. This is a major advantage in a ‘live’...

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...
