At the DSEI exhibition, Micro-Epsilon will present a range of measurement products suitable for military, defence and security applications. The company’s sensors are used to measure distance, position, vibration, dimensions, surface profile, thickness, temperature and colour using both contact and non-contact measurement techniques.

Micro-Epsilon’s Embedded Coil Technology (ECT) for non-contact eddy-current sensors will be showcased on its stand. Other highlights include a range of non-contact thermal imagers, temperature sensors, laser displacement sensors and confocal, capacitive, time-of-flight, draw-wire and colour-recognition sensors.

For those involved in vehicle/aircraft research and development and test (RD&T) programmes, Micro-Epsilon offers a range of high-precision, non-contact measurement sensors and systems, many of which are miniature, high-performance (accuracy, resolution, repeatability and sensitivity) sensors that offer the latest digital communications/fieldbus network interfaces, intelligent integrated software and closed-loop control.

The company’s products can be found in a number of military/defence RD&T applications, including non-contact sensors for optical missile testing systems; measuring small temperature differences on aircraft/vehicle braking systems/rotor blades; measuring vibration/load on aircraft wings; aircraft steering systems and landing gear; and miniature lightweight thermal-imaging cameras for UAVs.

The DSEI exhibition will be held on 10–13 September 2013 at the Excel in London. Micro-Epsilon will be exhibiting on Stand N3-271.

On show at DSEI

  • The EddyNCDT 3100 displacement sensor is the first standard, catalogue sensor to benefit from Micro-Epsilon’s ECT, which enables ultra-compact designs to be produced.
  • ECT is said to provide almost unlimited scope in terms of the external design and geometrical shape of the sensor, which can be adapted to suit virtually any application. The sensors offer extreme mechanical robustness, resulting in longer service intervals and higher temperature stability.
  • The sensors are suitable for harsh operating environments, including high vibration, impact shocks and extreme operating temperature ranges (-193°C to +600°C).
  • The Thermoimager TIM 450 inline infrared thermal imager is a high-resolution camera that offers both improved image resolution and detects even smaller temperature differences.
  • The TIM 450 is able to capture and store thermal video and images with extremely high optical resolution (382 x 288 pixels) at a full frame rate of 80Hz. A new detector provides thermal sensitivity of 40mK.
  • The Thermometer CSmicro is a miniature infrared temperature sensor with a diameter of 14mm. Its electronics unit is fully integrated in the cable and the sensor includes an LED for self-diagnostic functions or for displaying the current measured temperature. It is particularly suitable for high-volume OEM applications.


With over 45 years experience and more than 15,000 customers worldwide, Micro-Epsilon understands the need for accurate, robust, intelligent sensors and measurement systems.
