Smart Infrared Camera IRSX impresses with unique app and job concept
In order to attract attention in the field of temperature-measuring smart infrared cameras, not only innovative technology is required. Above all, it also requires special features that often make the use of the camera in thermal process control possible in the first place. Like the IRSX smart infrared camera from AT – Automation Technology.
Thanks to its high-precision calibration model, the AT smart infrared camera already impresses with a very high measurement accuracy of +/- 2°C. However, what makes it particularly interesting for industrial use is its variety of different apps that are not only available, but can also be exchanged at any time, allowing the functionality of the camera to be changed flexibly.

New Nd:YAG Doublets Eliminate Chromatic Aberration and LT Series Lenses Achieve Autofocus for 1.1” Sensors
Edmund Optics® just released TECHSPEC® Nd:YAG Air-Spaced Achromatic Focusing Doublets, which achieve diffraction-limited performance at 1064nm, and TECHSPEC® LT Series Fixed Focal Length Lenses, which feature high-resolution, dynamic autofocus for 1.1” sensors.
TECHSPEC® Nd:YAG Air-Spaced Achromatic Focusing Doublets are designed for use with high power Nd:YAG laser systems to minimize spot sizes in such applications as laser welding and aluminum, steel, and plastics processing. These doublets are more economical than aspheres and provide superior achromatic performance than single lens elements designed for the same applications. Read more ›
Simply brilliant – object handling for glossy and metallic parts
With the LumiScan Object Handling product family, HD Vision Systems is now offering industrial companies a convenient option for automatically detecting, gripping and placing workpieces in an oriented manner. With LumiScan BinPick in sizes S, M and L, gripping in every box and from every pile is a success. LumiScan MotionPick, on the other hand, supports the safe gripping of moving parts – for example from a conveyor belt.
The solutions based on light field technology offer users reliable detection of metallic or shiny objects. In addition, the LumiScanX sensor as part of the systems, minimises occlusions of objects in cluttered piles through its integrated camera array. Read more ›
