High-Sensitivity Infrared Detectors

Cal Sensors (Santa Rosa, CA) has launched a line of IDA (Integrated Detector Assembly) lead selenide and lead sulfide high-sensitivity infrared detectors with integrated electronics enclosed within a compact, hermetically sealed TO-8 package. Covering the 1.0 to 5.5 μm infrared region, IDA detectors provide sensitivity of 1.5E10 Jones. IDA lead selenide (2.8 × 1010 cm Hz1/2 w-1 peak D*) and lead sulfide (1.5 × 1011 cm Hz1/2 w-1 peak D*) detectors are available in both 1mm and 2mm square sizes. The detectors come with integrated electronics in an industry standard T0-8 package IDA lead selenide (2.8 × 1010 cm Hz1/2 w-1 peak D*) and lead sulfide (1.5 x 1011 cm Hz1/2 w-1 peak D*) detectors are available in both 1mm and 2mm square sizes.

Image Dimension Measurement System

The IM-6000 Series image dimension measurement system from Keyence Corp. (Woodcliff Lake, NJ) includes an Intelligent Pattern Analysis Search System (iPASS) that locates, identifies, and measures parts placed anywhere within the unit’s 100mm field of view, eliminating the need for an x-y stage. A Part Evaluation Library stores the images, measurement functions, and specifications of parts and provides automatic Pattern Search, part recognition, and measurement without setup the next time inspection of the same parts are performed. It can perform up to 99 distinct measurements, including angle, radius, inner/outer diameter, and circular and linear pitch, with the press of a button.

Temperature Controllers

VueMetrix (Martinsried, Germany) has introduced Vue-TEC-15 and Vue-TEC-24 temperature controllers that are microprocessor- controlled and feature advanced fault diagnostics, user-settable operational limits, and an extensive library of interface commands. They are switch mode DC/DC converters with smoothing filters to improve power conversion efficiency. Operating point is regulated automatically. Vue-TEC 15 is rated at 120 watts and the Vue-TEC 24 is rated at 200 watts. An auxiliary second serial port on the Vue-TEC allows it to communicate internally with another controller. They are available in packaged form or as a circuit board assembly. They are suitable for driving Peltier effect devices to deliver temperature regulation of small thermal loads such as laser diode and heat sinks, non-linear laser crystals, and infrared detectors.
