Product Details Supplier Info More products

Micro-Epsilon will present its full range of products — including non-contact eddy-current and laser displacement sensors, infrared temperature sensors, thermal-imaging cameras, draw-wire sensors and colour recognition sensors — at the Sensors and Instrumentation exhibition on 25–26 September 2013 at the NEC in Birmingham.

To encourage visitors to interact with the products, the stand 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 invited 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 scanner

  • This compact, lightweight scanner is suitable for a range of measurement tasks in highly automated production environments.
  • The sensor is small enough to be mounted on robot arms or on plant and machines where space is restricted.
  • It offers 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 sensor to benefit from Micro-Epsilon’s Embedded Coil Technology (ECT).
  • ECT is claimed to offer a breakthrough in eddy-current sensor design and manufacture, enabling ultra-compact designs to be produced.
  • ECT provides 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 sensor offers extreme mechanical robustness, resulting in longer service intervals and higher temperature stability.
  • It 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 not only offers improved image resolution but also 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, enabling the camera to detect even smaller changes in temperature.

Thermometer CSmicro

  • This is one of the smallest infrared temperature sensors currently available — it has a diameter of just 14mm and the electronics unit is now fully integrated in the cable.
  • The sensor includes an LED for self-diagnostic functions or for displaying the current measured temperature.
  • It can be used in a range of OEM applications, particularly where installation space is restricted.
