Pressure sensors perform a vital role in the development of effective robotic solutions for an ever-increasingly diverse and in some cases highly specialised manufacturing applications. One recent example of this is a high-precision pressure monitoring application for concrete processing using 3D printing robots resulting in automated concrete prints, without the need for complex formwork.
The development of miniature laser distance sensors which provide exceptional measurement performance are a vital component in today’s more compact machines and systems, helping manufacturers to meet the ever-present demands for optimum efficiency. The new miniaturised OM20 and OM30 laser sensors available from sensing and instrumentation specialist BAUMER are a good example being perfectly suited to handling precise measurement tasks, despite their ultra-compact size.
Wearable fitness trackers are rapidly growing in popularity. A barometric pressure sensor enables the wearable to detect changes in the user’s elevation, for example when walking up or down stairs, for calculating the number of calories that the user is burning.
A soft, flexible sensor system created with electrically conductive yarns could help map problematic pressure points in the socket of an amputee's prosthetic limb, researchers from North Carolina State University report in a new study.
AMETEK STC, a world-leading manufacturer of pressure measurement equipment under the brand U.S. Gauge, is pleased to announce the launch of its new webshop, store.ametekstc.com, for the pressure measurement industry.
iFit, a global leader in interactive connected fitness technology, today announced the upcoming release of iFit ActivePulse automatic heart rate training. iFit’s cutting edge technology uses complex algorithms so an iFit subscriber’s heart rate controls the treadmill in real time, automatically adjusting the speed and incline to maintain the optimal heart rate zone.
eLichens will exhibit its latest Indoor Air Quality Station including their own high-end NDIR CO2 sensor at the CES 2021, digital event, from January 12 to 13.
FreshAir, an industry leader in the development of sensors to detect and alert for hazardous chemicals, announces its unique and highly effective FreshAir1 Smoking Detection System. The FreshAir system is ideally suited for use in hotels, casinos, and other hospitality industry settings.
The Measuring Division of Kaman Precision Products, Inc., the world leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance position measurement systems, highlights the DIT-5200L non-contact displacement measuring system, ideal for fast-steering mirrors, servo control position feedback, stage positioning, and angular displacement indication, as well as X-Y orbit position feedback and stylus position.
Photoluminescence (PL) is light emission from a substance after the absorption of photons stimulated by temperature, electricity, pressure, or chemistry doping.
