IR Sensors for Measuring Radiation Temperatures

IR Sensors for Measuring Radiation Temperatures
The Smartec infrared sensor SMTIR9901 and SMTIR9902 are sophisticated full silicon infrared sensors. The sensors can be used in measuring the radiation temperature without any contact. For the different radiation temperature ranges various filters are available. The sensor type SMTIR9902 contains a temperature sensor for measuring the temperature of the sensor itself. The temperature range of the sensor-element is between -40°C to +100°C. The sensor is available in a standard TO-05 encapsulation and with a 5.5 um. high pass filter. For small field of view there is an infrared sensor available with a silicon lens.

Saelig Weighs in With Smart Load Sensor

Saelig Weighs in With Smart Load Sensor
Saelig announced LoadSense - an intelligent load sensor that can be integrated with a crane hook, fork lift or other handling device for intelligent feedback of loading events. It has an on-board single-chip computer for recording, analyzing and archiving readings, and wireless communications to transfer data in real time to a host computer. LoadSense provides the real-time information needed to optimize efficiency and increase profitability in a wide range of industrial operations, allowing weight measurement processes to be easily integrated with handling operations. All live data is captured in real time and can be transferred to a database, stored, totaled and analyzed on-the-spot.

Rohde & Schwarz introduces the world's first USB-capable wideband power sensors that can measure up to 40 GHz

Rohde & Schwarz is expanding its portfolio of USB-capable power sensors with the new R&S NRP-Z85 and R&S NRP-Z86. These are the world's first wideband sensors to measure power from 50 MHz to 40 GHz without requiring a base unit. Instead of a base unit, the sensors are connected to a PC via a USB interface. This cost-efficient solution displays envelope power over a dynamic range of -47 dBm to +20 dBm, which is unprecedented in the industry. High-resolution pulse analysis is another exceptional feature. Additionally, the R&S NRP-Z85 and R&S NRP-Z86 provide high-precision continuous-average measurements over the entire dynamic range from -60 dBm to +20 dBm. These performance characteristics make the sensors ideal for a variety of applications in the development and maintenance of microwave and radar systems as well as in the design and production of microwave components.
