Precision displacement, distance and position measurement under pressure

Precision displacement, distance and position measurement under pressure

The eddyNCDT 3005 from Micro-Epsilon is a new, powerful eddy current measurement system for fast, high precision displacement measurements. Due to its pressure-resistant, thermally stable and compact design, the eddyNCDT 3005 is ideal for machine integration.

Non-contact eddy current sensors from Micro-Epsilon are designed for extremely high precision measurement of displacement, distance, position, oscillation and vibration, etc. to micrometer accuracies. Pressure, dirt, oil or high temperatures have almost no influence on measurement precision. This eddy current measurement system...

Confocal Midrange Controller with one and two Channels

Confocal Midrange Controller with one and two Channels

The confocalDT 2421 and 2422 controllers open up new possibilities in precision distance and thickness measurement on different surfaces. The two-channel variant is an innovation whereby two confocal sensors are connected to a controller.

Particularly for diverse measurement tasks in the glass industry where typically high throughput rates occur, the new confocalDT 2421 and 2422 confocal controllers are ideal. Therefore, it is possible to perform multi-track measurements on flat glass, two-sided thickness measurements and multipoint...

IDS NXT: Extended product range and updated firmware

IDS NXT: Extended product range and updated firmware

IDS adds a new model to its family of vision app-based industrial cameras. IDS NXT vegas with 1.3 MP CMOS colour sensor, liquid lens with autofocus, ToF sensor for distance measurement and integrated lighting will be available from the end of April. Plus: updates for firmware and cockpit.

What makes IDS NXT so special?

1. The freely programmable platform is not restricted to specific tasks. Users can change and set up their preferred vision tasks in a very short time. This eliminates the need to switch devices.

2. The image processing engine of devices like...

Tailored Asset & Component Labels

Tailored Asset & Component Labels

Asset and component traceability, from production to maintenance and even spare part service contracts, becomes easier because more information can be printed in a legible way on durable labels. This can also result in better compliance with legal requirements such as UL certification, safety standards and environmental responsibilities. 

Brady’s asset and component labels can be created with the highest flexibility.
This includes:
-    small prints of text in every language, symbols and special characters
-    improved serialisation...

RTS - Reflowable Thermal Switch

RTS - Reflowable Thermal Switch

SCHURTER introduces its new RTS, a particularly compact overtemperature protection device using advanced SMD technology. It is suited for the highest demands of protection in power semiconductors.

RTS stands for "Reflowable Thermal Switch". It was developed to protect highly integrated power semiconductors like MOSFETs, ICs, IGBTs, Triacs, SCRs, etc. from overheating. Before mechanical activation, the RTS can be mounted using conventional reflow soldering techniques with temperature profiles up to 260 °C.

Industrial Cameras: Maximum Flexibility due to App-based Approach

Industrial Cameras: Maximum Flexibility due to App-based Approach

IDS NXT – which is the name of the novel vision app-based industrial cameras from IDS – can be explained best by a smartphone analogy: Without apps, smartphones would be ordinary mobile phones. They turn them into versatile devices that perform a great number of helpful tasks. IDS transfers this principle into the world of image processing.
The newly developed, freely programmable platform is no longer restricted to specific tasks. Users can install various different vision apps on their IDS NXT devices and can even develop individual apps with the help of the IDS Software Development...

More Power in the Hand

More Power in the Hand

The new 2668 … CR DC motor from FAULHABER offers considerably more power than comparable drives, and is the most powerful copper-graphite commutated DC-micromotor in its size class on the market. Thanks to a bigger NdFeB magnet and a high copper content in the winding, it supplies a rated torque of 70 mNm. As a result, it weighs just 189 g with a diameter of 26 mm. Furthermore, it reaches full power extremely quickly with its high pulse torque. The 2668 … CR is thus especially well suited for professional high-performance tools such as pruning shears...
