  • Utilizing Nano Technology Greatly Improves Metal Oxide Sensor Performance (.pdf)
    Advanced work in chemi-resistive sensing has been in the area of nanoengineered grain structures. The Net Safety metal oxide H2S sensor, available with our next generation gas detector, the Millennium II, shows a substantial performance increase as oxide grain size is reduced to the "nano" level
  • Position and speed of metal components measured with variable reluctance sensor
    Variable reluctance sensors are used to measure position and speed of moving metal components. This sensor consists of a permanent magnet, a ferromagnetic pole piece, a pickup coil, and a rotating toothed wheel. As the wheel rotates, the reluctance of the flux path through the coil changes
  • Metal-faced sensors
    sensors suit 80% of sensing applications today; but plastic-face sensors are not designed to stand up to the harsh conditions of severe industrial environments. Abrasion tests on plastic and metal-faced sensors show how well they withstand metal-to-metal contact. The metal-face sensor shows wear
  • Optimised Metal Strip Measurement
    , the thickness profile of the metal strip is an important feature. There are many different approaches for measuring the thickness profile. A very interesting solution is provided by Micro-Epsilon, a sensor and system manufacturer from Ortenburg.
  • Sensor Sense: Sensors and slag
    temperatures often exceed 1,200 F. Weld flash spews molten metal, forming slag and splatter deposits on the sensor tip and body. Hot metal sparks melt sensor housings to form pockmarks that trap additional slag and splatter. Peak weld currents exceeding 35 kA generate severe electromagnetic interference
  • Tips for Selecting the Right Inductive Sensor
    vacuum-sealed electronics and metal housings designed to protect against shock, vibrations, dirt, and moisture - which means you can use these sensors reliably under a variety of conditions.
  • Sensor Sense: Cylinder-Position Sensors
    sensors detect its position through the metal casing. Magnetic sensors detect the presence of magnetic fields using numerous sensing techniques. Magnetic-inductive (MI) technology was the dominant method for many years. However, within the last 10 years magnetoresistive (MR) sensing technology has
  • Sensor Sense: Fiber-optic sensors
    Industrial sensors using fiber-optic cables often have a role sensing small targets or working under conditions that would hamper other types of sensors. come in both thrubeam and diffuse-beam types. In thrubeam, light from the transmitter (Tx) fiber strand aims directly into the receiver (Rx
