IDS NXT rio & rome: Redefining Industrial Cameras

IDS NXT rio & rome: Redefining Industrial Cameras

Whether used as fully-fledged standard industrial cameras, as multifunctional devices with vision apps or even with artificial intelligence: models of the IDS NXT platform are capable to solve a wide range of vision tasks.

Equipped with standard industrial housing, high-performance hardware components and the unique vision app approach, the new camera families IDS NXT rio and rome are redefining industrial cameras. At VISION 2018, IDS introduced not only new models, functions, sensors and communication interfaces, but also showed how on-camera neural networks could be used. Furthermore,...

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...

Worldwide unique laser sensors

Worldwide unique laser sensors

Micro-Epsilon's optoNCDT 1320/1420 laser sensors based on the triangulation measuring principle perform non-contact displacement, distance and position measurements. Due to their low weight combined with compact size, the optoNCDT 1320/1420 sensors can be easily integrated into restricted installation spaces and are ideally suitable for applications where high accelerations occur e.g. on the robot arm or in pick-and-place machines. The high-performance optical system projects the small light spot sharply onto the measurement object which...

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...

Power Spring for Draw Wire Encoder Application

Power Spring for Draw Wire Encoder Application

Power Springs are formed by winding a strip of material on an arbor and into a case or retaining ring to create a compact power source. Power spring features
retractable, tensioning and loading function. When it comes position movement and high adjustment of machine and appliance, precise positioning performance and easily operating are required at first priority. 

In medical devices field, Ming Tai's power spring had been employed in Draw-wire Encoder for positioning of MRI and x-ray machines, which has gained great performance.

Draw-wire...

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 Precision Mechanical Position Sensor

High Precision Mechanical Position Sensor

With the new MP600 mechanical sensor family, Microprecision Electronics presents a low voltage position switch with NC and NO contacts. The travel between the two contacts is factory set at a distance ranging from  0.3mm to 1.5mm.

This allows two position detection without hysteresis and with a repeatability of less than 5µm.  One single sensor can be used to control high and low limits of a process, or home position and overrun position of a linear movement. 

Other Key Features are:

Temperature Range -40°C...
