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.
Mouser Electronics is now stocking the LUXEON 5258 light-emitting diodes (LEDs) from Lumileds. Engineered to serve as a single 4.8mm optical light source, the LUXEON 5258 is a multi-die package LED that provides precise beam control and high luminance from a single package. The LEDs are targeted at a range of general-purpose lighting and directional lighting applications including retrofit lamps, spotlights and luminaires.
Many lasers are limited to firing pulses based on an internal clock source and cannot be asynchronously triggered from an external signal such as from Aerotech’s PSO feature.
Amplicon has partnered with high-tech manufacturer Belden. This new partnership will give Amplicon customers access to the full Belden range, which includes hundreds of connectivity and networking products targeted at a variety of markets.
OMC is re-introducing transmitter/receiver pairs housed in the FDH1 SMA ‘top hat’-style housing to accommodate the larger diodes that are being specified by demanding applications, and also to withstand the harsh operating conditions that are commonly experienced by equipment used in the military, industrial and other hi-rel sectors.
OMC has introduced a new service, enabling engineers to choose exactly the right fibre-optic diode for their application and have it mounted in their preferred package.
