This white paper presents how the latest generation of PI hexapod controllers with integrated EtherCAT interface now makes it very easy for users to integrate hexapods into automation systems without the need to perform challenging kinematic transformations.
BaySpec offers the OCI-FSWIR dispersive SWIR imaging spectrograph designed to cover the 900 nm to 1700 nm wavelength range. This spectral engine is a "true push-broom" imager, enabling a hand to move the imager or sample to finish the scan.
With better performance and lower cost, short-wave infrared line scan cameras are proving their worth in a variety of machine vision systems, from inspecting and sorting food to detecting cracks inside solar cells.

As the U.S. continues to increase its security at border crossings, airports, and other points of entry, biometrics will play an important role. Fingerprints and other direct contact means will become final identifiers of persons.
There are many solutions available that attempt to correct a poor environment in order to mitigate its undesirable effects. A typical solution is to use a vibration isolation table, and sometimes facilities are completely renovated in order to establish a "metrology" grade environment.

Partnering with a glass company to incorporate glass-to-metal sealing into medical instruments can boost reliability and longevity by offering superior electronics protection and providing unmatched capability to be autoclaved thousands of times.
Thermographic imaging is accomplished with a camera that converts infrared radiation (IR) into a visual image that depicts temperature variations across an object or scene. This article is part two of a handbook by FLIR that discusses the use of IR detectors in thermographic imaging.
