Polytec offers laser Doppler vibrometer for characterising the dynamic behaviour of MEMS
Laser Doppler vibrometer
Polytec has introduced the UHF-120 laser Doppler vibrometer (LDV), which, featuring a frequency range of up to 1,200MHz, is designed for the characterisation of high-frequency dynamic behaviour of micro components and HF transducers.
According to the company, the laser Doppler vibrometer enables engineers to investigate the dynamics of micro components such as MEMS, transducer technologies and combinations of micro- and nanotechnology with ultrasonic actuation, characterising mechanical responses at these frequencies and displacements.
It suits such tasks because laser-based, non-contact optical testing avoids mass loading from direct contact to provide the entire frequency range split into phases, as well as allowing analysis of transients and decay phases in the time domain.
Polytec’s UHF-120 ‘ultra-high-frequency’ vibrometer has an extended bandwidth that allows characterisation of out-of-plane vibration frequencies bandwidth up to 1.2GHz and the velocity range to more than 100m/s.
The Opto Diode ODD-5W 5mm²photodiode from AP Technologies has features including: TO-5 hermetic package; circular active area; and low capacitance.
Fibre-optic links from OMC are suitable for designers of industrial automation systems who are widely adopting Smart Factory/Industry 4.0 working practices that rely on the collection and feedback of large amounts of equipment performance data, which is then used to fine-tune production processes and increase efficiency. They are particularly useful in ensuring reliable communication in noisy and hazardous environments.
JCC Lighting Products, a manufacturer of commercial and domestic lighting, has improved the electrical safety testing of its range of LED products using a low-power multifunction HAL LED tester from Clare, part of the Seaward Group.
OMC is now offering ruggedised 1mm core polymer fibre-optic cable with a reinforced jacket incorporating aramid tension members to address challenging environment applications. These include short-distance datacoms, industrial and office networking, medical illumination and sensing, signs, signalling and lighting.
The SSL5015TE LED driver integrated circuit (IC) from NXP Semiconductors is now available from Mouser Electronics. The SSL5015TE is designed to fulfil a variety of lighting applications, including retrofit LED lamps and driver modules for LED lighting.
