IDS NXT Ocean – Grab, Label, Train, Run AI

IDS NXT Ocean – Grab, Label, Train, Run AI

Artificial intelligence opens up new fields of application for camera technology and image processing. It can be used, for example, to classify fruit varieties or to identify damaged parts (e.g. apples with marks or colour deviations). 

To cover all possible variances with classical image processing would be very time-consuming and costly. With artificial intelligence, however, these challenges can be solved in no time at all. With IDS NXT ocean, there is now a user-friendly complete solution for industrial applications.

Sound & Vibration DAQ HAT for Raspberry Pi

Sound & Vibration DAQ HAT for Raspberry Pi

Measurement Computing adds a new member to its series of DAQ HATs - professional DAQ modules designed for the Raspberry Pi® platform. MCC 172 is a dual-channel module for acquiring IEPE sensor data.

MCC 172 accepts direct connection of piezoelectric sound & vibration sensors according to the popular IEPE standard. Data can be sampled simultaneously with 24-bit resolution and sampling rates up to 51.2 kS/s per channel. No additional signal conditioning will be required for acquiring aliasing-free signals up to 23 kHz. For higher channel count multiple DAQ HATs...

One of the World’s Smallest Infrared Sensors

One of the World’s Smallest Infrared Sensors

The miniaturized sensing heads are especially developed for the use in small and cramped surroundings and are perfect for applications with limited space, such as midgets instruments and engine constructions. The very advantageous cost-performance-ratio supports the integration of the pyrometers within OEM solutions and simultaneous use of the measurement devices at multiple infrared measuring facilities.

The compact series devices offer inimitable advantages for the installation in applications with high surrounding temperatures, such as within the plastic or paper industry. The...

New variants with ground choke

New variants with ground choke

SCHURTER extends its successful power entry module series C20F with versions including a ground line choke, designed for suppressing high-frequency interference on the ground conductor. Additionally, the new variants have a bigger X-capacitor for better symmetrical attenuation.

The C20F filter series combines an IEC C20 appliance inlet with a high-quality mains filter. The particularly wide metal flange makes contact with the housing surface over a large area, thus enabling optimum filtering and shielding.

Ground choke

New variants of the C20F...

Polarisation Reveals Details That Were “Invisible”

Polarisation Reveals Details That Were “Invisible”

A polarisation sensor makes details visible that remain hidden to other image sensors. IDS now offers the IMX250MZR 5 MP sensor from SONY with integrated on-pixel polarisers in the uEye CP camera family. The models ensure better object detection in cases of low contrast or light reflections. They also provide a convenient way of detecting fine scratches on surfaces or the stress distribution within transparent objects.

Both USB3 Vision and GigE Vision are available as interfaces. Using polarisation filters, the sensor generates an image with four polarisation directions...
