Infrared thermometers, rather than having to come into contact with a body to determine its temperature, do so by measuring radiated energy. Fast and reliable temperature measurements of moving, very hot or difficult-to-access objects are thereby made possible. The use of infrared sensors is also possible for very high temperatures, where a contact sensor or contact probe would be destroyed or would have a very short service life.
offering extreme resolution and high measuring rates, laser triangulation sensors accurately measure displacement, position and vibrations on an engine manifold, powertrain or car body
the very small diameter of all-new sensor models enables the technology to be mounted simply on the turbocharger for monitoring
With multiple sensor categories gaining traction amid the current recessionary times, this feature analyses the various new age applications and technologies that are making the rounds in the Indian sensor segment and suggests the themes of future developments in this domain.
Eddy current displacement sensors are one of the main pillars of non-contact industrial measurement technology, being used to measure distances, displacements or positions of any electrically conductive target. The principle offers many advantages that no other procedure can replicate. The conventional sensor design is now being supported by new developments in materials and components. This makes handling these sensitive sensors easier, while extending the number of applications.
The automation of rolling mills, strip treatment plant and handling processes can no longer be imagined without the use of non-contact measurement technology. Besides the width and coil weight, the coil diameter is one of the most important items of production information.Coil diameter is used not only for the finished coil, but also for the production speed control or as a criterion indicating the approach of a coil end. Optical systems, with the help of which position and distance can also be measured, work particularly accurately and reliably.
Modern sensors and measurement systems are helping to make medical interventions more secure, automate research, and to design more ergonomic medical devices.
Modern sensors and measuring systems facilitate medical operations, they automate research and they contribute to the ergonomics of medical equipment.
Automation in medical technology is no longer an alien concept. Increasing cost pressures and staff shortages call for new techniques to be used to improve operational efficiencies.
Draw-wire sensors, rope length gauges, rope length transmitters or string pots are just some of the names of the widespread forms of displacement measurement sensors, all of which are based on a principle like that of the household tape measure.
Increasingly complex processing, optimisation of raw material costs or new standards mean there is a continually growing demand for sensor technology. Optical measuring techniques are becoming more and more important here.
