Sensors Unlimited Inc. (SUI; www.sensorsinc.com) has introduced reportedly the world's smallest dual-wavelength, visible and near-infrared camera—the Visible-InGaAs SU320Mvis 1.7RT MiniCamera. Built around SUI's proprietary InGaAs focal plane arrays, the camera weighs less than 11 oz (300 gm) without the lens and features a 320 × 240 pixel array with a 40-micron pitch. It can simultaneously deliver a 12-bit digital RS-422 digital output and EIA-170 analog video output for display on commercial TV monitors. Intended applications include industrial machine vision, hyperspectral imaging, and laser beam profiling.
Why would the biggest connector company in the world design and build the first fully functional 3D-printed motorcycle? To show TE Connectivity's engineers what the technology can really do in making working load-bearing production parts, and free up their thinking when approaching design problems.
The enhanced ST8 includes new functionality designed to help users accelerate design speed and improve the user’s ability to leverage synchronous technology. The update offers greater flexibility in choice of platform and purchasing options, according to the company.
“How can European standards affect me, especially since I only use machines built in the US?” This is a common question, and one way to answer this is to look at how machine safety is enforced, where the information comes from, and how well you can prove you followed the regulations.
