Calibration business strengthened

Endress+Hauser has been providing high level calibration solutions to the process industries for many years. To strengthen this position, the group has now acquired a minority share in Irish company CompuCal Calibration Solutions (CCS). The stake will ensure appropriate access to CCS’ technology and the further development of the calibration management software package “CompuCal”. Automated […]

Protection for machine operators

Reer’s Admiral optoelectronic safety barrier is designed to protect users exposed to risks arising from the use of dangerous machines. Admiral, with its two safe static outputs, can work without external control units with all the safety functions integrated inside the emitter and the receiver complying perfectly with the requirements of EN 61496-1 and IEC […]

Load sensor for force measurement on structures

Vishay’s Model 178 extensometer is a load sensor designed for force measurement on any load-bearing structure. This extensometer provides the total solution for weighing, level control, stress and fatigue monitoring. The design also allows multiple sensors to be permanently mounted for more complex stress profiling and analysis. The Model 178 extensometer provides the solution for […]

High-linearity analogue variable-gain amplifier

The Max 2092 high-linearity analogue variable-gain amplifier (VGA) is a monolithic SiGe BiCMos attenuator/amplifier/error amplifier with an alarm circuit designed to interface with 50 Ω systems operating in the 700 MHz to 2700 MHz frequency range. The device features a gain range of 18,1 dB to -22,3 dB, a noise figure of 5,2 dB, OIP3 […]

Light control film for controlled viewing

In this light control film, the microlouvers allow for controlled viewing so an unauthorised observer’s line of sight is blocked. It is ideal for confidential viewing on CRTs, automatic teller machines (ATM) and anywhere privacy viewing is desired. The microlouvers also help block out annoying off-axis light while maximising the transmission from the display to […]

Sensor for continuous level monitoring in almost all liquids

Ifm Electronic’s efector gwr operates to the principle of guided wave radar and measures the level using electromagnetic pulses in the nanosecond range. The sensor is suited to continuous level monitoring in almost all liquids including aqueous media, coolants, cleaning agents and oils. Efector gwr offers high flexibility due to its modular sensor system. Versions […]

Limiting amplifier and burst mode laser driver

The Max 3710 limiting amplifier and burst mode laser driver provides a highly integrated, low-cost, high-performance PMD solution for Gpon/Epon/Onu applications in modules or directly on the Onu board. The low-jitter laser diode driver provides transmit burst mode average power control (APC) of laser bias current as well as an integrated modulation current control loop (extinction […]

New encoder designed for elevators

Eltra has announced a new incremental encoder, the EH80PF, purpose-built for geared traction drives in elevator applications. The new encoder incorporates design features said to make it reliable and suitable for elevator environments. The EH80PF hollow shaft accepts shaft sizes from 30 mm to 44 mm and custom bores are available. Keyed shaft, set-screw, and […]
