Precision sensor manufacturer Micro-Epsilon has introduced a range of protective housings for its scanCONTROL laser profile sensors and its thermoIMAGER range of infrared thermal imaging cameras. The protective housings enable the sensors and cameras to operate in extremely harsh environments, opening up both technologies to a variety of applications that were previously unsuitable.

When selecting a non-contact capacitive displacement sensor, a number of key factors need to be considered, including target size and shape, guarding method and bandwidth. As well as clean environments, the sensors can also operate in dirty, dusty industrial areas too, says Chris Jones of Micro-Epsilon.

Travelling from A to B at record pace in the Hyperloop – that’s the vision of Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk, who is pushing the development of this innovative transportation technology. But this high speed mode of transportation requires precision sensors to take over important measurement tasks. Compact infrared temperature sensors from Micro-Epsilon check the surface temperature of drive wheels, battery voltage, current, engine temperature, engine speed, ambient pressure and pressure in pneumatic systems.

A robust, portable, non-contact capacitive bench test kit for measuring the thickness variation of automotive brake discs is now available from Micro-Epsilon. The new capaNCDT DTV (Disc Thickness Variation) case is a special purpose portable test kit for car repair shops, brake disc manufacturers and automotive suppliers. The kit is specifically designed for non-contact measurement of brake disc thickness variation for bench tests, quality assurance and warranty claims purposes.

BLOODHOUND SSC reached a major milestone in October, as it made its first public run at the Aerohub in Newquay. However, the event wasn’t just about driving the car successfully down the runway and showing it to spectators; it was also about testing the car and putting it through its paces, in particular, testing of hundreds of on-vehicle sensors that they were performing correctly under such extreme operating conditions.
