Night-Vision Imaging

OleaVision™ See-Through Wall Technology from Olea Sensor Networks (Reno, NV) functions optimally at a distance of 3 to 4 meters from the target surface, requiring no contact with the wall. The lightweight device, smaller than a typical smartphone, “sees” through most wall materials, regardless of whether the monitored subject is moving or motionless. Using thermal energy, OleaVision enables first responders and armed forces to identify human beings during search-and-rescue operations. For Free Info Visit http://info.hotims.com/61062-405

Vision Sensors

The SBSI series of vision sensors from Festo (Hauppauge, NY) feature rugged IP67 housing, built-in lighting, and EtherNet/IP capability. SBSI sensors, which read 1D and 2D bar codes, can be ordered as components, portions of a subsystem ready for assembly, or parts of a plug-and-play module.

Surface Profiling Sensors

OGP® (Rochester NY), a division of Quality Vision International (QVI®), has introduced its TeleStar® Probe sensor. TeleStar Probe, a self-contained off-axis partial coherence interferometric range sensor for surface contour measurement, offers measured point resolution in the sub-micron (< 0.1 micron) space. The sensor scans up to 500 data points per second, with 1.0-micron accuracy and 0.1-micron repeatability.

Magnetic Position Sensors

The new AS5170 and AS5171 automotive sensors from ams AG (Premstaetten, Austria) were developed as SEooC (Safety Element out of Context) devices, as defined in the ISO26262 functional safety standard. The magnetic position sensors have a System-in- Package (SiP) format. The space-saving package enables the placement of the sensor device in environments that are prohibitive to PCB-based packages.

Surface Sensors

Sensofar Metrology (Terrassa, Spain/Scottsdale, AZ) has released two new surface metrology systems. The S lynx, a non-contact 3D surface profiler, integrates confocal, interferometry, and focus variation techniques into the same sensor head. The S onix, an ultra-compact 3D surface sensor, is purpose-designed for high-speed in-line process measurement and process control tasks. The S onix sensor system features a single measurement technique: interferometric – VSI.

Wireless Switches

New wireless, batteryless limit switches from Steute Industrial Controls (Ridgefield, CT) include an internal electrodynamic energy generator. Displacement of the actuator generates power to send a uniquely coded signal to one or more compatible, easily-programmed receivers. If the limit switch does not receive the confirmation signal within 15 ms, a second signal is transmitted. The receiver accepts up to 10 discrete signals per channel.

Product of the Month: May 2016

Molex, Lisle, IL, offers Soligie® printed electronic sensor systems that provide a thin, flexible alternative to rigid printed circuit boards (PCBs) or copper flex circuits in a range of applications in the medical, industrial, consumer, defense, and other industries. An integrated design and manufacturing process produces printed electronic sensor systems that incorporate a wide variety of components on printed electronic substrates. The printed electronic components and interconnects can be fabricated on flexible substrates such as plastic, paper, and foil. The sensor solutions measure temperature, shock, and humidity, providing physiological, environmental, and biochemical monitoring, and virtually any other sensor application requiring a thin, flexible electronic form factor. Designs start with a flexible substrate onto which functional circuits are printed and components are added. The substrates are suitable for integrating sensors, batteries, RFID devices, thin displays, LEDs, and other passive devices.
