(pressebox) Bad Kreuznach, Germany - With its new APO Xenoplan 2.0/24, Schneider-Kreuznach is expanding its industrial optics product range in time for Vision 2008.
The new high-resolution lens was especially developed for 3D measurement and traffic engineering. It features homogeneous brightness control, a large capture area and short focal length.
The focal length of 24 mm, the iris in the range from 2.0 to 16 and the broadband coating from 400 to 1000 nm make this a very versatile lens for industrial applications.

Meriden CT, USA -- The technique involves the deposition of thin films of dielectric and resistor alloy onto metal components, followed by the formation of the strain-gauge layout by laser-cutting to form load cells and pressure sensors.
Devices made in this way offer significant advantages in terms of performance characteristics and suitability for volume manufacture.
This approach allows the creation of a wide range of sensors serving a great variety of applications in the medical, industrial, oil & gas, aerospace, educational and research fields.
One of the more interesting applications of Strain Measurement Devices’ thin film sensor technology in the field of medial devices is the use of ‘tube sensors’ to monitor pressure by measuring the force exerted onto a sensor by the pressure in disposal-set tubing.
Thin-film sensors using this technique have found application in a number of medical devices involving delivery of fluids to the body, such as infusion pumps, insulin pumps, enteral feed pumps, and wound irrigation systems etc.

Sewickley PA, USA -- The latest version of the Micro thermal imaging system for semiconductor failure analysis includes a new thermal imaging camera with 320x240 element uncooled detector and 0.05°C sensitivity, 20 µm microscopic lens, wide angle lens, and 16 bit digital Camera Link interface.
As electronic devices continue to decrease in size, heat generation and thermal dissipation become increasingly important.
Micro can measure and display the temperature distribution over the surface of semiconductor devices, enabling quick detection of hot areas which can decrease efficiency and frequently lead to early failure.

Toronto ONT, Canada -- GAO811 handheld visible laser source is a visible red laser source, which is mainly used in finding communications fiber faults accurately. The laser could not only be reflected out from the macro bend point, overlay layer or the naked fiber position, but also can be jetted from a tie-in which is not linked well.
It can distinguish the faults of a fiber jumper, jumper board, distribution frame and tie-in.
Also, the visible laser source can remedy the limitation of the near blind area of OTDR, and judge fiber faults position accurately.
As such it is an ideal instrument for optical net function and maintenance.
