Brushless Flat DC-Servomotors with more torque

Brushless Flat DC-Servomotors with more torque

More and more applications in the areas of robotics, prosthetics, laboratory automation, medical device technology, pumps, and aircraft cabin equipment require high torque in a very short length.  FAULHABER has raised the bar in the area of high performance, external rotor, slotted drives with the introduction of the FAULHABER BXT family of flat brushless DC motors.

Thanks to innovative winding technology and an optimised design, the motors are just 14, 16 and 21 mm in length but deliver torques up to 134 mNm, within a diameter of 22 mm, 32 mm and 42 mm respectively. They...

High Speed, High Sensitivity Thermal Cameras

High Speed, High Sensitivity Thermal Cameras

FLIR X6900sc SLS and FLIR X8500sc SLS thermal cameras provide the faster frame rates, shorter snapshot speeds, and wider temperature ranges needed for the most demanding scientific research applications. These outstanding thermal cameras feature strained layer superlattice (SLS) detectors filtered for longwave infrared. These SLS detectors produce high frame rates and wide temperature ranges, as well as integration times that are more than 12 times faster than their midwave counterparts.

FLIR combined this advanced technology with popular features of high-speed visible cameras,...

High-Pressure Flowmeter Measures Liquid Refrigerants

High-Pressure Flowmeter Measures Liquid Refrigerants

Titan Enterprises offers a high-pressure turbine meter for measuring the flow of liquid refrigerants. Incorporating steel reinforced polymer components, to give a pressure rating of 40 Bar, the low inertia turbines of the flowmeter have proven ideal for measuring the low viscosities (0.3 to 0.4 centipoises) encountered with volatile refrigerant fluids measured in the liquid form. With careful sensor selection the pressure drop through the flowmeter is low enough to prevent gas break-out and ensure reliable flow measurement from -25°C to +125°C.

For...

uEye LE with IMX273: excellent image quality

uEye LE with IMX273: excellent image quality

The 1.6 MP global shutter CMOS sensor provides enormous sensitivity, low noise levels and a high dynamic range. The integration into the uEye LE camera family from IDS allows numerous new USB 3.1 Gen 1 cameras. Due to low space requirements, they are particularly well suited for equipment manufacturing and space-critical applications.

From April 2019, uEye LE models will complement the already available uEye CP, uEye FA and uEye SE variants with IMX273 from the Sony Pregius...
