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,...

IDS NXT rio & rome: Redefining Industrial Cameras

IDS NXT rio & rome: Redefining Industrial Cameras

Whether used as fully-fledged standard industrial cameras, as multifunctional devices with vision apps or even with artificial intelligence: models of the IDS NXT platform are capable to solve a wide range of vision tasks.

Equipped with standard industrial housing, high-performance hardware components and the unique vision app approach, the new camera families IDS NXT rio and rome are redefining industrial cameras. At VISION 2018, IDS introduced not only new models, functions, sensors and communication interfaces, but also showed how on-camera neural networks could be used. Furthermore,...

High-Pressure Flowmeter Measures Liquid Refrigerants

High-Pressure Flowmeter Measures Liquid Refrigerants

Titan Enterprises offers a high-pressure turbine meter for measuring the flow of liquid refrigerants. Incorporating steel reinforced polymer components, to give a pressure rating of 40 Bar, the low inertia turbines of the flowmeter have proven ideal for measuring the low viscosities (0.3 to 0.4 centipoises) encountered with volatile refrigerant fluids measured in the liquid form. With careful sensor selection the pressure drop through the flowmeter is low enough to prevent gas break-out and ensure reliable flow measurement from -25°C to +125°C.

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.

The...

Motion Controller from FAULHABER with STO shutdown

Motion Controller from FAULHABER with STO shutdown

FAULHABER has brought to market a new series of Motion Controllers with redundant safety shutdown according to the STO principle (Safe Torque Off). The power supply to the motor is thereby immediately interrupted, preventing it from producing torque. The devices of the MC 5004 P STO series are thereby certified for operation up to safety integrity level SIL3 (IEC 61800-5-2) and up to performance level PL e (EN ISO 13849-1). 

"The new Motion Controllers ensure safety in the collaboration between human and machine, even in an Industry 4.0 environment," emphasises product manager...
