Prox sensor detects carbon fiber composites

Also at the show, Astyx Inc. (formerly known as Microwave Technology and Sensors) showed a proximity sensor that detects the distance of near-field (about half an inch) targets, including carbon fiber composites, as well as all types of metals. The new prox sensor represents a departure of sorts for sensing technology, which previously had been unable to detect such composites with great accuracy. Astyx Inc. President Peter Schmitz says the new sensor can detect its distance from a carbon fiber to an accuracy of about 10 mum at a measuring range of about 1 mm. For more information on Astyx, go to
