786nm Laser Diode Modules

Lumics GmbH (Berlin, Germany) has broadened its portfolio of single-mode fiber pigtailed butterfly 14-pin modules by adding 786nm to that product line as a standard wavelength. Modules are now available in the following wavelengths: 786, 793, 808, 850, 915, 980, 1012, 1025, 1032, 1064, 1070, and 1080nm. Other customized wavelengths between 750 — 1100 nm are available on request. The Lumics' hermetically sealed BTF14 modules are manufactured as per Telcordia standard GR-468-CORE. The modules can be either cw or pulsed. They are available with up to 500mW output power cw, or up to 2W pulsed. Lumics offers all BTF 14-pin modules also with a laser diode driver e.g. as a compact, table-top solution. www.lumics.com

Precision Laser System

Prima Power Laserdyne (Champlin, MN) has announced availability of the LASERDYNE 430 Series of precision laser systems with up to 20 kW QCW (quasi continuous wave) fiber lasers. This laser system is designed for ease of use in cutting, welding and drilling of 2D and 3D components requiring precision and consistency. The 430 BeamDirector(R) system adds Laserdyne's third Generation BeamDirector(R) (BD3Y), giving users a unique capability for drilling cylindrical and shaped holes, bevel cutting, and welding a wide range of materials including aluminum, copper, stainless steel and titanium. Combining higher velocity and acceleration, the third generation BD3Y provides C (rotary) axis motion of 900 degrees, and D (tilt) axis motion of 300 degrees. www.primapowerinterface.com/430/

Wide Angle IP Surveillance Cameras

Toshiba Surveillance & IP Video Products (Irvine, CA) has introduced two new full HDTV (1080p) mini-dome IP cameras featuring 110° horizontal viewing angles to capture up to 20 percent more area than cameras equipped with standard 93° angle lens. The outdoor-ready IK-WR05A and indoor IK-WD05A are pre-focused for objects at close range up to infinity. In addition, both models are ONVIF Profile-S compliant for simplified integration with third-party ONVIF products and have 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology to eliminate the need to run electrical cables for power. Both cameras will stream live video at 30 frames-per-second at full frame rate, two-megapixel (1920 x 1080) resolution. www.toshibasecurity.com

Achieving Total Data Awareness: How Traceability Improves Manufacturing

Traceability has variable and narrow definitions depending on the industry, product, and application. As a result, narrow solutions are often adopted yet only deliver the required data scope for a subset of a specific product. The issue with this approach is twofold: First, it only delivers a short-term solution, as traceability requirements expand continuously. Second, it neglects a significant opportunity to achieve real process intelligence and control.
