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...

GO. A breath of fresh air in power electronics

GO. A breath of fresh air in power electronics

A fast measurement speed, achieved within tight cost and size constraints while integrating the primary conductor in SO packages without compromising the necessary insulation, is often as critical as the other high performances for current measurement in motor-drive applications.

A unique sensor with an integrated primary conductor achieves optimum temperature accuracy, measuring from -40 to +125 °C in a surface mounted SO8 or SO16 package. 
  
• 10-30 A nominal current
• Better than 1.3 % accuracy @ +25°C 
• Differential Hall...

Brushless DC-Servomotors with Ø 16 mm

Brushless DC-Servomotors with Ø 16 mm

The new 1660 ... BHx series sets new standards: with respect to dimensions and weight, it delivers high speed and power values with low vibration and heat development, something inconceivable until recently. This drive series is thereby predestined for handpieces with high power requirements in applications with limited installation space.

The BHx series made by FAULHABER are new high power slotless brushless motors in 16 mm diameter based on a 2-pole technology. Through their robust, compact design and outstanding performance data, the motors of this new product family are particularly...

Preserve Your Process Integrity While Measuring Flow

Preserve Your Process Integrity While Measuring Flow

The new MetraFlow ultrasonic flowmeter from Titan Enterprises incorporates a chemically resistant Perfluoralkoxy Alkane (PFA) tube onto which are mounted high sensitivity ultrasonic sensors. There are no dead areas, changes in fluid direction or obstructions, just a tube. As a result - MetraFlow can make non-intrusive flow measurements preserving the cleanliness of your process.

Applications including drug production, electronic device creation, medical research and food manufacture, require that a flowmeter has no inclusions or dead areas as this can lead to contamination...
