CCD Image Sensors

Eastman Kodak, Rochester, NY, has introduced the KODAK KAI-02050 image sensor, a 2-megapixel CCD image sensor that provides 1600 × 1200 pixels at a readout speed of 60 frames per second. It is designed for applications such as machine vision, industrial inspection, and medical applications. Designed in the 2/3" optical format, and available in color and monochrome versions, the sensor is based on the KODAK TRUE-SENSE 5.5-micron Interline Transfer CCD platform, which incorporates a progressive-scan 5.5-micron pixel. Also introduced is the KODAK KAF-50100 image sensor, a monochrome, 50-million-pixel sensor with an 8176 × 6132 pixel array.

Model RPM10 Photo/Contact Tachometer

Extech Instruments, Waltham, MA, has introduced the Model RPM10 photo/contact tachometer that includes a built-in, noncontact infrared thermometer with laser pointer that provides surface temperature measurement ranging from -4 to 572°F in locations that are unsafe or hard to reach. It features a 6:1 field of view, allowing a 1" spot to be measured at a distance of 6". Combining infrared temperature with RPM measurement, it can be used for evaluating motor performance and detecting bearing or insulation failure. In photo mode, the device uses a laser light source and measures 10 to 99,999 RPM from up to 6.5' from the target. In the contact mode, it measures from 0.5 to 20,000 RPM, while linear surface speed measurements range from 0.2 to 6,560 ft/min, and 0.05 to 1,999.9 m/min. Characters in the display change direction so that readings can be seen regardless of which end of the device is being used. Readings are displayed on an LCD, and memory stores the last maximum and minimum readings. The device is constructed with a double-molded housing, and comes with tips and wheels for RPM or linear surface speed, four 1.5V AA batteries, reflective tape, a rubber boot, and carrying case.
