Infrared detectors suitable for fit and forget applications

Infrared detectors suitable for fit and forget applications
LASER COMPONENTS has introduced industrial grade thermal detectors, from their research and production facility in Arizona. These detectors work on the principle that photons incident on the polycrystalline thin film, promote electrons across the bandgap increasing the conductivity of the material, in turn decreasing the resistance of the substance.

High speed quality checks down to high-performance camera testing

High speed quality checks down to high-performance camera testing
Whether sauces, snacks or ready meals have to be filled and packaged, high throughput and quick format changes matter in the packaging systems and food industry, and to the highest standards of quality and hygiene, too. For this purpose, the sensors used have to be able to do one thing above all: meet high demands for power, flexibility and hygiene all at the same time.

CMOS sensor features on-pixel polariser for object detection

CMOS sensor features on-pixel polariser for object detection
  Sony Semiconductor has released its new Preguis IMX250 sensor with a four-directional polarisation square pixel array, providing higher contrast for more detailed pictures in less time. The 5.07MP sensor, with a 2/3" optical format, has a 2448x2048 pixel array utilising a 3.45µm pixel size. The IMX250 reaches a frame rate of 144fps at 10 bits.

How lighting sensors can help keep people safe

How lighting sensors can help keep people safe
Increasing safety in Graz's Volksgarten is a key goal of both the local authorities and the 'GEMEINSAM.SICHER in Graz' association. Together with Zumtobel Group Services (ZGS), they have launched a pilot project to install intelligent luminaires in part of the public garden in the Austrian city, using vandal-resistant fittings that deliver high light levels and smart connectivity.

Optical sensors enable short-wave blue LED lighting

Optical sensors enable short-wave blue LED lighting
A minimal sensor area of only 1.9x3.3mm is sufficient for the optical sensors in the iC-PNH series to scan encoder code discs and generate sine signals in top hi-fi quality. Evaluation is executed by interpolation ICs using a Nonius calculation, e.g. iC-MN and iC-MNF, permitting a very high angle resolution of more than 21 bits, even with code disc diameters of only 26mm. All devices of this series can be used with short-wave blue LED lighting for an high accuracy due to a sharper projection.

Miniature laser sensors with precise detection ability

Miniature laser sensors with precise detection ability
Designed with IO-Link technology, the new O300 miniature laser sensors from Baumer are especially for the reliable detection of very small objects and gaps. Thanks to a laser beam which focuses to within 0.1mm and the high repeat accuracy of 0.1mm, objects can be positioned with high precision and follow-up processes controlled exactly.

Next-gen photoelectric sensors pilot the future of sensing

Next-gen photoelectric sensors pilot the future of sensing
SICK’s next-gen W16 and W26 smart sensors with ‘BluePilot’ alignment are at the helm of a streamlined portfolio of photoelectric sensors, radically-upgraded to optimise ease-of-use with complete object detection reliability. The W16 and W26 proximity, reflex and through-beam sensors are manufactured at a purpose-built, fully-automated production facility in southern Germany. They mark the culmination of a two-year, multi-million euro research and development project involving extensive consultation with SICK customers worldwide.
