MVPro Friday news round-up: from new sensors to new cameras

Every Friday we give you a snap shot of the week’s machine vision news; some we’re covered, some we’re about to cover and some we just don’t want you to miss.

The week started with news that SICK had introduced a new ultrasonic flow sensor.

We then moved onto news that Precision Glass & Optics has installed a new optical monitoring system.

Bragging rights go to Princeton Infrared Technologies who say they have introduced the world’s first and only MegaPixel, shortwave-infrared camera with no ITAR export restrictions.

We ended the week with news that FRAMOS and PYXALIS had extended their friendship, forged over a few years, into a formal agreement. The announcement from FRAMOS makes interesting reading, no doubt explaining to their other sensor suppliers the rationale behind the renewed collaboration.

AIA is currently on the look-out for speakers on a variety of vision and imaging topics. They are in demand for the The Vision Show & Conference, hosted by AIA, which takes place on April 10-12, 2018 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. The show is expected to attract over 3,000 attendees with some 300 people attending conference sessions. It is held just once every two years.

Deadline for initial ideas is 15 September, 2017.

And talking about conferences, here’s another date for your diary. The MCMA TechCon is a conference on motion control, motors and related automation technologies. They say there will be excellent presentations, networking opportunities with top suppliers and a chance to walk away with practical tips that helps your company save time, and money. It’s on 16-18 October, 2017, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

There was an update from Axiomtek, with word of their 15″ industrial touch panel PC (right). The P1157E-500 adopts a 15” XGA TFT LCD display, featuring an IP65-rated front bezel and 5-wire resistive touchscreen with 250 nits brightness. Ideal, said the company, for multimedia kiosks and factory automation applications. The IP65-rated P1157E-500 supports the 7th generation Intel Core, Celeron and Pentium processors in an LGA1151 socket with the Intel® H110 chipset. It has five OSD membrane keys on the front panel to provide an easier way to adjust the display, volume and brightness. Moreover, users only need to remove four screws to open the back cover for quick assembly.
