At the Southern Manufacturing show, Micro-Epsilon will present its full 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.

On display will be the Scancontrol 2600/2900 — a 2D/3D laser profile scanner that is compact and lightweight, making it suitable for a wide range of measurement tasks in highly automated production environments.

Other highlights include the EddyNCDT 3100 displacement sensor, which benefits from Micro-Epsilon’s Embedded Coil Technology (ECT) that enables ultra-compact designs to be produced.

The company will also showcase its latest Thermoimager TIM 450 inline infrared thermal imager as well as its Thermometer CSmicro, which it says is one of the smallest infrared temperature sensors currently available, having a diameter of just 14mm.

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, ‘Measure your Strength’, using the high-precision Capa6200 sensor series.

The Southern Manufacturing show will take place from 12–13 February 2014 in Farnborough. Micro-Epsilon will be at stand V89.
