NEW: Worldwide Smallest Draw-Wire Sensor

NEW: Worldwide Smallest Draw-Wire Sensor

With a weight of only 8 g and a size of just 19 x 19 mm, the Micro-Epsilon wireSENSOR MT19 is used for displacement and distance measurements with a measuring range of 40 mm.

Enabling wire accelerations of up to 60 g, the sensor is particularly used in applications where high dynamics are required (crash tests, simulators or test benches). The miniature design enables installation into very small spaces. Through-bores in the housing support easy mounting.

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,...

Save Time and Hassle with One Integrated Solution for Control & Automation

Save Time and Hassle with One Integrated Solution for Control & Automation

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...

Limit Switch with Integrated LED Status Indication

Limit Switch with Integrated LED Status Indication

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...

The New SWaP-C Neutrino LC

The New SWaP-C Neutrino LC

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.
