Thermal-imaging sensors that detect and capture images of the heat signatures of human bodies and other objects have recently sprung into use in thermostats to check facial temperatures in a contactless attempt to screen for COVID-19 at several building entrances.
The specialist reading for sensor industry including the world's first eight-channel detector and other new members of the LRM family.
Food wastage is a major problem across multiple fronts. A new wireless temperature sensor could save money and help the environment.
The FLIR Vue® TZ20, the first high resolution, dual thermal sensor gimbal purpose-built for the DJI®Matrice 200 Series and Matrice 300 airframes is now available in Australia.
Vaccines for COVID-19 have been created by researchers at record speed. The first two vaccines distributed largely in the United States are mRNA-based and necessitate ultracold storage (-20 °C for one and -70 °C for the other).
Researchers have demonstrated that stretching shape-memory polymers embedded with clusters of gold nanoparticles alters their plasmon-coupling, giving rise to desirable optical properties. One potential application for the material is a sensor that relies on optical properties to track an object or environment's thermal history.
Precision sensor manufacturer Micro-Epsilon has introduced a range of inductive displacement sensors that monitor the clamping position in machine tools. The sensors are extremely compact and robust (IP67), while providing high temperature stability and high repeatability, even in harsh machine tool environments.
NRG Systems, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of smart technologies for a range of wind, solar, and meteorological applications, announced today the opening of North America’s ZX Lidars service and support center at its headquarters in Vermont, USA. NRG Systems introduced the UK-based Lidar OEM’s technology to North America in 2019, expanding distribution of ZX remote sensors to the global wind market through its Value Added Reseller network less than a year later.
NewTek HAR Series of Hermetically-Sealed Linear Position Sensors provide critical position measurement in the monitoring and control of steam turbine valves in power plants. Ideal for power plant rehabilitation programs, these AC-operated LVDTs serve as OEM replacements for legacy applications, offering the same fit, function, and reliability as original units.
