A team of seven academic institutions will work together on a national research project to increase the security and privacy of high-tech products used in smart homes.
Oxford YASA Motors, a company created to commercialise the revolutionary YASA motor developed by Oxford University’s Energy and Power Group, is finding that a TorqSense non-contact speed and torque sensor from Sensor Technology is an invaluable aid in the refinement of its world-leading motor designs.
Research at the University of Manchester has demonstrated servo systems with vastly improved dynamics with the most challenging of loads. The key to the increased performance is a torque transducer from Sensor Technology employing Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) techniques to deliver high-bandwidth, non-contact solution.
The German company InnoSenT has developed a new radar solution for close range. The product iSYS-5005 impresses with reliable and precise detection thanks to complex 24 GHz MIMO radar technology and advanced signal processing.
Precision sensor manufacturer Micro-Epsilon has extended its range of miniature controllers for inductive displacement sensors with two new multi-channel models. Together, the complete range of controllers opens up a wide field of potential applications from test & development, machine building and automation tasks.
ifm electronic has launched a new multi-function vibration sensor that provides a comprehensive real-time condition monitoring solution for electric motors and other simple machines. Benefits include cost-effective continuous monitoring of equipment, early warning of potential problems, elimination of unnecessary routine maintenance and reduced downtime.
Today’s process and control sensors are benefitting from important technical advances enabling users to explore and develop new control concepts, especially for automation applications.
The electricity that lights our homes and powers our appliances also creates small magnetic fields that are present all around us. Scientists have developed a new mechanism capable of harvesting this wasted magnetic field energy and converting it into enough electricity to power next-generation sensor networks for smart buildings and factories.
Factory automation continues to develop year on year and pumps are increasingly required to supply real time operating data to control networks so that their performance can be monitored and adjusted to meet constantly changing production requirements.
The DGC-06 controller series from MSR-Electronic is used for monitoring and warning of toxic and combustible gases and vapors as well as in the Freon refrigerant sector of the gas measurement technology.
