Over Forty Strainsert Customized Force Sensors are Deployed on the Mars Rover Curiosity


Towcester, UK – September 2012: The USA based premier force sensor manufacturer, Strainsert Company, recently announced that it has supplied over forty customised sensors that have been deployed across NASA's Mars Science Laboratory mission which recently and successfully landed its Mars Rover Curiosity mobile laboratory in the Gale Crater area on the Red Planet. Represented exclusively in the UK by non contact sensor, transducer and measurement experts, Ixthus Instrumentation, Strainsert designed and manufactured mission critical sensors for various functions including the major spacecraft separations (cruise stage, heat shield, descent stage, ballast masts and rover), as well as the retention of the mobility (wheels), high gain antenna, camera mast, robotic arm and mechanisms retaining two spare drill bits ...

New Position Sensor for use in Harsh Offshore Operating Conditions


Elmhurst, IL (August, 2012) - Oil platforms, shipyards, construction and offshore engineering companies all have special requirements for sensors that can meet the tough and harsh environments that they have to work in. Sensor specialists ASM have engineered the WB100M tape sensor for such applications. It is highly resistant to shock and operational to IP68/69K in sea water. The POSITAPE® series of sensors exceeds all expectations when used in areas of difficult access and pulley wheels are used to change the direction of the tape route. On conventional draw wire sensors the use of these pulleys can considerably reduce the life of the draw wire. But with the POSITAPE® range, the stainless steel measurement tape will have at least double the life compared to that of a measurement cable under identical operating conditions ...

Level Sensor with Extremely High Corrosion Resistance at Competitive Cost


For most level sensors, industrial application boundaries are set by the resistance of the wetted parts to aggressive media. This often leads to the selection of sensors that are built using special and costly materials. In some instances the materials used can limit the performance of the sensitive membranes used for hydrostatic measuring sensors. To prevail over these problems, the German sensor specialist ADZ NAGANO, represented exclusively in the UK by Variohm EuroSensor, has developed its PS1 series level and point sensors that use a high quality stainless steel casing with an optional PTFE coating - offering increased durability for particularly aggressive media at reasonable cost ...

SMART Position Sensor, Rotary Configuration


Honeywell is rounding out its SMART position sensor portfolio with the new Rotary Configuration that provides 360° non-contact angular position sensing. With this product, Honeywell offers a SMART Position Sensor that encompasses the most basic geometric configurations: lines, angles, and circles. The new sensor is highly durable, accurate, and cost-effective, enabling design engineers to replace an optical encoder, or to utilize a sensor instead of a resolver which can be expensive and difficult to integrate into a system. The SMART Position Sensor utilizes non-contact magnetoresistive (MR) technology to determine the object’s position, which allows it to accurately sense position in dirty and harsh environments, replacing optical encoders, which utilize light to determine position, to obtain a highly accurate measurement. Resolvers are typically hand-wired devices with extremely high accuracy and durability for use in incredibly precise, non-serviceable aerospace applications ...
