High-magnification zoom lens systems can achieve greater working distances with the addition of the Zoom Xtender. The Xtender increases the versatility of the Zoom 6000 and 12X Zoom systems by extending their reach yet still maintaining internal focus and parfocal zooming. It also allows the operator to keep computer-controlled motorization and detents intact.
The American-made PosiTest DFT coating thickness gage has been updated to include a flip display for right-side-up viewing in any position and a built-in wrist strap for added convenience and security. The gage is available in two models, Ferrous for steel or Combo for all metals. Fast, repeatable measurements and no calibration required for most applications make it ideal for paint applicators and inspectors.
A complete line of modular CMM fixturing in ¼ to 20 thread size for holding parts during inspection is available. This system offers fixture plates, fixture towers, a wide selection of standoffs and pin rest pads, magnetic rest pads and soft-touch clamps. Hard-coat, black anodized aluminum CMM fixture plates have ¼-20 tapped holes on ½-inch centers and are alpha-numerically labeled for documenting fixture setups. Standard fixture plate sizes start at 12 inches by 12 inches and go up to 28 inches by 40 inches to cover most CMM measuring ranges. Special fixture plate sizes can be quoted. ½-inch, ¾-inch and 1-inch diameter standoffs come in ½-inch, ¾-inch, 1-inch, 2-inch and 3-inch height increments to allow quality managers to build repeatable part fixtures that offer optimal part access for measurement with a coordinate measuring machine. After a part has been located and positioned, soft-touch clamps provide light clamping force for holding parts in position under touch probing.
The ACW is a wireless transmitter, controller and display. It can be powered by either current transformers or potential transformers in existing power line installations. The patent-pending technique of the device uses the signal (voltage and/or current) to power the RMS-DC converter and wireless transceiver for volts, amps, hertz or watts (or all four) that operate from 315 to 928 megahertz. The receiver can be powered from 5 to 32 VDC or 90 to 265 VAC and comes in a NEMA 4X case. Industrial, mil-spec or nuclear grades are available. 902 to 928 megahertz spread spectrum is for U.S. applications; 315 to 870 megahertz is for foreign installations.
The Hand-Operated Marker (HOM) is for use with non-contacting video extensometers, allowing marks to be placed on a specimen with consistent size, color density and spacing. Inks will stretch along with the specimen, unlike traditional stick-on paper dots that may move as the material is being strained, which can introduce error. Printed dots provide the advantages of improved edge sharpness, uniformed density across the dot and a smoother-shaped outline than hand-drawn dots. Well-defined printed dots improve dot tracking algorithm performance and allow greater tolerance to video image error sources, such as background color and density variations.
The DVT 535C entry-level color vision sensor is not limited to a single machine vision function such as color sorting, but can handle a much broader range of applications with a compete set of color tools for sorting, color match and defect detection.
When used with an IR LED illuminator, the CS8620Hi near-IR RS-170 analog camera can achieve detailed surface inspection of superficial irregularities, blemishes or defects not easily observed in the visible spectrum.
Lasiris laser line generators are able to project from three to 99 parallel lines with a high degree of uniformity across the lines. Multiline patterns are compatible with all Lasiris lasers that emit from 375 to 1,550 nanometers.
The BOS 6k miniature-32 by 20 by 12 millimeter-photoelectric sensor enables transparent objects to be identified regardless of shape, color or composition. The new retroreflective sensor’s low hysteresis makes it suited for detecting transparent objects such as glass bottles, test tubes or transparent films in industrial and packaging applications.
