Fast Piezo Focusing Systems for Microscopy introduced at BIOS: Digital and more Affordable


San Francisco, CA - Piezo systems specialist PI introduces a new, more affordable series of Fast Piezo Focusing devices at the 2011 BIOS (Biomedical Optics) meeting, the world’s largest and most prestigious international biomedical optics and imaging conference, held in conjunction with SPIE’s Photonics West.

The new PIFOC® system packages are designed to improve results in fast focusing & lens positioning as well as in deconvolution / 3D imaging, and to reduce costs at the same time.

Optical Rotary Encoder with Ethernet POWERLINK Interface


Real-Time Interface

Ethernet POWERLINK is an open and completely software based solution that is promoted by the EPSG (Ethernet POWERLINK Standardization Group). It is a real-time protocol that is based on the CANopen back bone. The encoders from FRABA POSITAL have a jitter for synchronization that is less than 1 micro seconds.

New Encoder from MicroE Systems’ Is World’s Smallest with Nanometer Resolution


MicroE Systems’ new Mercury II™ 6000 series of encoders sets a new benchmark for small sensor size with high resolution and accuracy. The sensor is only 8.2mm high, weights just 3 grams and provides output resolution as fine as 1.2 nanometers. The small, high-performance encoder system will enable a broad range of new capabilities in compact motion control stages and positioners through a combination of accurate nanometer-level positioning, compact system design, and unprecedented affordability for this level of performance.

OCD II CANopen – High Performance Absolute Rotary Encoder


High Performance - The new OCD II CANopen series has been designed to be more compact and have better performance. Like all OPTOCODE encoders, the new models use a tried and tested optoelectronic scanning method to record positional values. The single-turn sensor provides a resolution of up to 16 bit per revolution (0.05º) and the Multi-turn unit registers a maxi-mum of 16,384 revolutions (14 bit), thereby covering an overall measuring range of 30 bit. Use of a fully integrated CAN controller has optimized the architecture and reduced the cost.

Optical Sensor for Rotational Speed Measurement of Large and Hollow Shafts


Hamilton, New Jersey - OPTIPACT motion sensors from FRABA provide an innovative and easy-to-implement way of determining rota-tional or translational velocities of machinery or product in a wide variety of applications. OPTIPACT sensors are built around an optical system similar to a digital camera: the velocity of a moving object is determined by monitoring the rate at which an image of the object travels across the surface of the optical sensor.
