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 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.

Ensenso 3D Camera with Onboard Data Processing

Ensenso 3D Camera with Onboard Data Processing

Ensenso XR is the first model of the 3D camera series offered by IDS to feature on-board processing. This means that it calculates the 3D point clouds itself and sends them via Gigabit Ethernet or Wifi to a host PC for further 3D data analysis.
Ensenso XR is ideally suited for multi-camera systems, as it reduces the load on bandwidth and connected PCs, for example. Depending on the parameterization, the 1 GigE models of the new camera family are about twice as fast as those of the Ensenso X series. Bin picking applications that are designed for the fastest possible clock rate, for example,...

Power Analyzer and Data Acquisition System for Testing Electrical Drives

Power Analyzer and Data Acquisition System for Testing Electrical Drives

HBM eDrive Testing is the revolutionary system for testing electrical inverters and electrical machines. Mechanical signals (e.g., torque) and electrical signals (current, voltage) are acquired simultaneously, helping you to better understand the electric drive and its losses in minutes rather than days. This is important for the optimization of the drive as well as the increase in efficiency.

In contrast to conventional power analyzers, HBM eDrive Testing offers unique data acquisition and analysis capabilities in addition to power measurement.
