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...

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.

NEW: Worldwide Smallest Draw-Wire Sensor

NEW: Worldwide Smallest Draw-Wire Sensor

With a weight of only 8 g and a size of just 19 x 19 mm, the Micro-Epsilon wireSENSOR MT19 is used for displacement and distance measurements with a measuring range of 40 mm.

Enabling wire accelerations of up to 60 g, the sensor is particularly used in applications where high dynamics are required (crash tests, simulators or test benches). The miniature design enables installation into very small spaces. Through-bores in the housing support easy mounting.

Brushless Flat DC-Servomotors with more torque

Brushless Flat DC-Servomotors with more torque

More and more applications in the areas of robotics, prosthetics, laboratory automation, medical device technology, pumps, and aircraft cabin equipment require high torque in a very short length.  FAULHABER has raised the bar in the area of high performance, external rotor, slotted drives with the introduction of the FAULHABER BXT family of flat brushless DC motors.

Thanks to innovative winding technology and an optimised design, the motors are just 14, 16 and 21 mm in length but deliver torques up to 134 mNm, within a diameter of 22 mm, 32 mm and 42 mm respectively. They...

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 Speed, High Sensitivity Thermal Cameras

High Speed, High Sensitivity Thermal Cameras

FLIR X6900sc SLS and FLIR X8500sc SLS thermal cameras provide the faster frame rates, shorter snapshot speeds, and wider temperature ranges needed for the most demanding scientific research applications. These outstanding thermal cameras feature strained layer superlattice (SLS) detectors filtered for longwave infrared. These SLS detectors produce high frame rates and wide temperature ranges, as well as integration times that are more than 12 times faster than their midwave counterparts.

FLIR combined this advanced technology with popular features of high-speed visible cameras,...

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.
