Precision over long distances

  Leuze distance sensors have a reputation for accuracy over both small and large distances. They are used everywhere geometric parameters such as height or width need to be determined, and are characterised by high resolving capacity at high measurement rates. The Leuze ODSL 30 is capable of measuring distances on black objects (up to […]

Communication unit for open networks

  Panasonic has developed a solution for transferring data between controllers and the sensors required. Until now, communication between intelligent sensors and controllers has been realised via serial or parallel interfaces built into the sensors. At the same time, simple sensors capable of displaying the digital status of 1 or 0 only were developed for […]

Compact IR camera with wide temperature range

  Instrotech has announced the availability of the Optris PI camera featuring online thermal imaging systems, claiming impressive cost-to-performance ratios.   Developed to thermally determine objects and automatically detect hot or cold spots, typical applications are research and development; test stations; process automation and portable measurement tasks. The instrument covers a range of temperature measurements between […]
