NXT-Level Image Processing – Now Available

NXT-Level Image Processing – Now Available

The industrial revolution is underway – and the brand new vision app-based camera families IDS NXT rio & rome strive to play a major role in the midst of it. Starting from May, the first models will be available as design-in samples. Customers can choose between different protection classes (IDS NXT rome comes with IP65/67), sensors and variants with artificial intelligence.

The new models communicate via GigE Vision and are optionally equipped with various CMOS sensors from 1.3 MP to 5 MP. The basic functions of the IDS NXT cameras can be...

Optimized Solution of Constant Force Spring for Carbon Brush

Optimized Solution of Constant Force Spring for Carbon Brush

Ming Tai Industrial Co., one of leading manufacturers of steel strip springs, develops wide variety of high precision constant force springs for carbon brushes application. It ensures the carbon brush works consistently by dependably exerting constant pressure to increase brush life and to reduce electrical wear. Carbon brushes can also be used for earth return current units to divert static and induced electric currents in a motor shaft away from the bearings, and to protect them from pitting and damage.

Constant force spring keeps carbon brush to rub against...

Unmatched Precision in Distance and Thickness Measurements with Confocal Sensors

Unmatched Precision in Distance and Thickness Measurements with Confocal Sensors

Confocal chromatic sensors provide the latest modern technology for displacement, distance, position and thickness measurements combined with maximum precision and high speed. A large range of sensors and different controller interfaces open versatile fields of application, e.g. in the semiconductor industry, glass industry, medical engineering and plastics production.

Especially when measuring on reflecting and shiny targets, confocal chromatic sensors provide high accuracy whereas laser sensors are overdriven due to the high light intensity. This is a major advantage in a ‘live’...

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...

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.

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.
