Ensenso XR: 3D Data Directly from the Camera

Ensenso XR: 3D Data Directly from the Camera

When 3D image processing is used in compute-intensive applications, interfaces and CPU power quickly become a bottleneck. Wouldn't it be convenient if the 3D camera already did some of the computing? Ensenso XR is the first stereo vision camera offered by IDS that processes 3D data directly in the FPGA. The camera family initially consists of XR30 and XR36 models. They are very robust thanks to IP65/67 protection class, feature 1.6 MP Sony sensors and can detect objects at working distances of up to 5 metres.

Since the camera calculates 3D data itself, a high-performance...

uEye ACP: Individual Cameras Based on a Modular Principle

uEye ACP: Individual Cameras Based on a Modular Principle

Custom-made products are required whenever standard industrial cameras reach their limits. Especially for small projects, however, development and cost expenditure are often disproportionately high. Thanks to its flexible modular design principle, the new uEye ACP concept from IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH enables individual, economical solutions to be created – even from single units. With just a few clicks, users can put together their own individual board level camera model using an online configurator and request a quote directly from the manufacturer.

Compact 3-Phase Mains Filter

Compact 3-Phase Mains Filter

FMAD NEO is the latest single-stage filter family for 3-phase systems with a neutral line. Especially compact with high performance, the new filter series is ideally suited for use in today's more portable industrial machines, designed to occupy less floor space in manufacturing plants.

Three-phase control cabinets almost always have severe space constraints. SCHURTER addresses this problem with a completely new filter design, which is much more compact than older generations. The new, almost cubed, design makes optimum use of available space in...

Infrared Temperature Sensors for Almost Any Application, Even ATEX Zone 0

Infrared Temperature Sensors for Almost Any Application, Even ATEX Zone 0

With over 35 years’ experience in temperature measurement, Calex manufactures non-contact sensors for a wide range of uses in industrial manufacturing and condition monitoring. For example, ExTemp sensors are ATEX and IECEx certified Intrinsically Safe for use in hazardous areas including Zone 0. They provide a near-instant reading of surface temperature at a very affordable price.

Temperature ranges from -20°C to 1000°C are available. The sensor’s 90% response time is just 240 ms, and a linear 4-20 mA output is provided to transmit the measurement to instrumentation...

MP600 Sensors - Sensing 2 Positions within Microns

MP600 Sensors - Sensing 2 Positions within Microns

Microprecision introduced a family of “swiss made” sensors for position detection. The new MP600 series of mechanical sensors very accurately detects two positions within a single, compact electromechanical component. Two independent commutations can sense two previously defined positions to within a few microns of accuracy.

The distance between the two positions can be set specifically for each application, between 0.3mm and 1.5mm. The fixed NC and NO contacts activate with no measurable hysteresis.

Repeatability is less than...
