First Inference Camera with OPC UA

First Inference Camera with OPC UA

The all-in-one AI system IDS NXT ocean enables completely new machine vision applications. Perfectly coordinated workflows and easy-to-use tools ensure that image processing with artificial intelligence becomes manageable for everyone.

The system requires neither special knowledge in deep learning nor camera programming to create and execute individual neural networks. Only sample images and knowledge on how to evaluate them (e.g. "good" / "bad") are needed. This makes the start into AI-based image processing particularly easy. With the latest software update,...

ACE Air Springs for Good Sound and against Bad Vibrations

ACE Air Springs for Good Sound and against Bad Vibrations

The song ‘Good Vibrations’ by the Beach Boys is a hit. The opposite of this are shocks, oscillations and vibrations that ruin the listening experience. The engineers at the electronics company BaiRuiKe Technology Co., Ltd. know how critical hi-fi purists are. In Shenzhen, near Hong Kong, they develop and manufacture high-quality tube amplifiers and the corresponding components. In order to demonstrate the performance of the audio products to visitors from all over the world, they are received in a specially designed demonstration room.

That’s NXT: when the camera calls the shots

That’s NXT: when the camera calls the shots

To enable a robot to act in a situation- and goal-oriented manner, an industrial PC is usually required to process image data. But there is another way: the intelligent, vision app-based IDS NXT cameras are able to carry out the image processing for localising pre-trained objects themselves and trigger commands such as "gripping" and "placing". This makes a PC for "pick and place" unnecessary and enables applications such as the correct positioning of tool parts in a toolbox.

The all-in-one AI system IDS NXT ocean is designed for completely new...

New High-Speed Pyrometer CT 4M from Optris

New High-Speed Pyrometer CT 4M from Optris

With very fast processes, requirements for the pyrometers used for temperature measurement are especially onerous.
Typical examples are plastics processing machinery, such as those used for blow-molding PET bottles, which work on very short cycle times.

Another application is the monitoring of rail vehicles, where the temperature of the wheelset bearings are measured as the train wheels pass the pyrometer, to be able to detect components running hot in good time.

Optris now offers the new high-speed pyrometer CT...

Three Main Applications of Spring in the Carbon Brush Industries

Three Main Applications of Spring in the Carbon Brush Industries

Ming Tai Industrial Co. manufactures both single coil type constant force springs and twin coil type constant force springs for carbon brush application. Basically, there are three main applications: commutator, slip ring, grounding/lightning protection. Constant force spring plays different role of function in each application respectively.

1. Commutator

Commutator is one common component in certain electric motors and electrical generators. For example, traction motor is used for propulsion of vehicles, locomotives. Historically, the series wound DC motor...

AI-Based Image Processing for Factory Automation

AI-Based Image Processing for Factory Automation

The integration of the industry protocol OPC UA is another milestone for the IDS NXT platform. The intelligent IDS NXT cameras can now communicate with machines and controllers in the same standardised language to exchange tasks and results instantly.

The implementation of this key technology enables the integration of smart cameras into factory automation without the need for additional hardware or programming.

This is unique in the market. Standardised communication via OPC UA also creates the foundation for "plug and produce" of...

How to Mitigate the Effects of Pulsating Flow

How to Mitigate the Effects of Pulsating Flow

A new technical article from Titan Enterprises discusses how variation in flow velocity can impact flow measurement accuracy and how to mitigate any undesirable effects. It is well known that flowmeters are sensitive to effects such as pulsating flow in systems using diaphragm, peristaltic or piston pumps which can generate errors in flow measurement.

In a pulsating flow system, the velocity profile of the flow undergoes a dramatic change during each cycle of pulsation compared to even flow conditions. According to theory, to accurately...
