Product Details Supplier Info More products

Micro-Epsilon will present a range of sensor technologies — including non-contact eddy-current and laser displacement sensors, infrared temperature sensors, thermal-imaging cameras, draw-wire sensors and colour recognition sensors — at the Engineering Design Show on 2–3 October 2013 at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry.

The company’s stand (C35) will stage a number of live working demonstrations, where sensors will be set up to capture measurements from a variety of real-world applications.

Visitors will also be able to take part in Micro-Epsilon’s Sensor Challenge to test their knowledge of the various non-contact measuring techniques.

Products on show

Scancontrol 2600/2900 2D/3D laser profile sensors

  • These are compact and lightweight and as such are suitable for a range of measurement tasks in automated production environments.
  • They are small enough to be mounted on robot arms or on plant and machines where space is restricted.
  • The sensors offer measuring rates of up to 1,280 points per profile; measuring ranges are from 53mm up to 390mm.
  • Various interfaces are available, including Gigabit Ethernet, RS422 and digital and encoder inputs.

EddyNCDT 3100 displacement sensor

  • This is the first standard, catalogue sensor to benefit from Micro-Epsilon’s Embedded Coil Technology (ECT), which enables ultra-compact designs to be produced.
  • The sensor offers improved flexibility and multi-sensor capability through an integrated calibration facility within the sensor head.
  • Its mechanical robustness results in longer service intervals and higher temperature stability.
  • The displacement sensor is suitable for harsh operating environments, including high vibration, impact shocks and high operating temperatures.
  • Custom ECT sensor versions can be developed for high-volume OEM applications.

Thermoimager TIM 450 inline infrared thermal imager

  • This high-resolution camera is able to detect small temperature differences.
  • It can 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, enabling the camera to detect even smaller changes in temperature.
  • Presentation and analysis of the images, videos and profiles are optimised by bi-spectral technology and an intelligent software developer kit.

Thermometer CSmicro infrared temperature sensor

  • This is claimed to be one of the smallest infrared temperature sensors currently available; it has a diameter of just 14mm, with the electronics unit now fully integrated in the cable.
  • The device includes a light-emitting diode (LED) for self-diagnostic functions or for displaying the current measured temperature.
  • The sensor can be used in a range of OEM applications, particularly where installation space is restricted.
