Mini laser sensor

15 April, 2003 | Supplied by: Micromax Pty Ltd

Banner Engineering has introduced the World-Beam QS18LE series laser emitters designed for use as a DC powered 'laser pointer' in an industrial housing as well as the emitter half of an opposed mode sensor pair.


Varnish sensor

20 March, 2003

Despite the use of computer simulation, wind tunnel testing is still required to measure pressure changes and airflow speeds on the surfaces of new aircraft and automobile prototypes. Such testing is now done less with smoke visualisation and threads but more frequently with high-tech sensors which have the least influence on air flows. Film sensors made from piezoelectric materials provide one alternative. However, such films are difficult to apply - especially on rounded surfaces - and they do not adhere well under windy conditions. These disadvantages have been overcome with a varnish developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Plymer Research IAP.


Flexible screens ready to roll

21 January, 2003

In the future, powering up your laptop may require you unroll it first. Engineers at the University of Toronto have constructed flexible technology that could lay the groundwork for future generations of bendable television, computer and mobile phone screens.


Remote measurement

Developed specifically to work with existing web browser technology, the Fieldgate FXA 520 gateway is designed for remote process measurement monitoring, diagnosis and configuration of HART-compatible sensors and actuators.


VOC sensor

07 January, 2003 | Supplied by: Adilam Technologies

Figaro TGS2620 is a volatile organic compound (VOC) sensor with high sensitivity to alcohol and organic solvent vapours.


Heat stress monitor

07 January, 2003 | Supplied by: TRE Associates

The RSS 214 DL is a handheld micro processor based wet bulb globe thermometer that measures environmental factors that contribute to heat stress.


Mass flow sensing for high accuracy measurement

05 January, 2003 by Sam Kresch, Product Manager, Fluid Components International

Accurate flow measurement impacts process safety, throughput, recipe, quality and cost, affecting bottom line profit or loss. Obtaining accurate flow measurement begins with selecting the best flowmeter technology for the specific application media


LCD touchscreens

12 November, 2002 | Supplied by: Active Components Australia Pty Ltd

Active Components has available a range of LCD touchscreens from Truly Semiconductors.


Fluorescent displays

12 November, 2002 | Supplied by: Tenrod Australia Pty Ltd

Noritake has introduced the 7000 series, the low cost feature rich graphic capable character range of VDF modules. This range of VFDs is both character and graphic capable and features the new user definable windowing function that provides the user with independently controlled windows that is capable of displaying text and graphics simultaneously.


Bendable screens

04 November, 2002

It has been reported that DuPont, Sarnoff and Lucent technologies will work together to develop a display technology that could lead to thin, flexible monitors that can be wrapped around curved surfaces or rolled up and put away or carried. The project is to be sponsored by the Advanced Technology Program at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).


Control Sensors

08 October, 2002 | Supplied by: Thermo Fisher Scientific

The MTS range of displacement sensors provides a method of position feedback. The magnetostrictive technology allows these sensors to be used in a wide range of applications including those where there may be high shock and vibration such as moulding machines, saw milling and hydraulic cylinders.


Sensor for Transplant Organs

08 August, 2002

Scientists at University of Ulster have developed sensors that are inserted in transplant organs to monitor if there has been any deterioration in the organs condition since being removed from the donor.


LCD Manufacturing

25 June, 2002

Using the two company's joint venture, Philips Electronics and LG Electronics plan to expand capacity of LCD panels and large-screen desktop monitors. Production will begin in the first half of 2003.


Philips invents technology for paintable displays

28 May, 2002

Scientists from Philips have fabricated flat panel displays through simple coating techniques similar to painting. Philips claims that this makes displays cheaper, thinner and provides great design freedom.


LCD Monitor

09 April, 2002 | Supplied by: Schneider Electric IT Australia

APC has announced its all-in-one, 1U combined liquid crystal display monitor/keyboard drawer that optimises space I racks and enclosures.
