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.
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...
Building new machines for today’s factories requires sophisticated control and automation that can only be delivered through multiple solutions and components – including a PLC, HMI, and VFD (Variable Frequency Drive). As all components must be integrated, selecting the right combination is crucial to the efficiency and success of the machine development project.
Why risk multi-vendor complexity?
Researching different products from multiple companies can be a major drain on time as well as confusing, with different offers and delivery schedules. And, when you have questions...
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. The first models are already 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 individually...
5G will have an undoubtable impact on the innovation of autonomous vehicles. Its ultra-low latency will play a critical role in automotive connectivity, its fast and reliable data connection will allow you to download up-to-date 3D maps in near proximity and it also ensures that all mission-critical wireless services seamlessly work up to 500 km/h (310 mph).
5G is the future of autonomous driving and autonomous applications. Discover more by reading our latest white paper!
Thermal imaging is a trusted non-destructive technique which can detect internal defects in advanced materials through target excitation and the observation of thermal differences on the sample surface.
The FLIR A6750sc SLS thermal imaging camera from FLIR Systems comes standard with Lock-In, Transient, and Pulse capabilities enabling you to undertake meticulous Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) or stress mapping of advanced materials, resolving temperature differences as low as 1 mK.
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.
Resolve Optics is a well established supplier of specialist endoscopic systems for hostile environments where radiation, extremes of temperature / pressure or contact with corrosive liquids and gases would render standard products unusable.
To enable inspection inside of operating furnace and boilers, Resolve Optics has supplied several specialist endoscopes to non-invasively analyse high temperature processes including incineration, recycling, smelting and chemical manufacturing.
