White paper: understanding machine vision verification of 1D and 2D barcodes download

MicroscanMon, 31 Mar 2014

Legible, accurate barcodes have never been more important than they are today, when automated supply chains depend on data accuracy to ensure the reliable performance of global operations. Machine vision verification is one tool that can be used to ensure that barcodes meet a consistent level of quality for readability in an automated process, and that bad codes are identified before they result in costly fail­ures. This white paper from Microscan introduces 1D and 2D barcode verification ...

Technical article: 10 things you need to know about infrared windows — chapter 10 downloadweblink

IRISSThu, 27 Mar 2014

Studies show that traditional open-panel infrared (IR) inspections are both time consuming and a poor use of high-value resources (electricians and thermographers). Bolted panels are designed to make access to energised conductors difficult. Furthermore, the use of bulky personal protection equipment (PPE) makes the process even more difficult. This article from IRISS provides an IR window cost-benefit analysis.

IRISSThu, 20 Mar 2014

Companies implement an infrared (IR) window programme for a variety of reasons, but most tend to fall into a few categories: standards compliance; safety; risk management; cost savings/efficiency; and data management. This article from IRISS discusses each of these areas in detail.

Technical article: ultrasonic disintegration of cell structures download

Hielscher USAWed, 19 Mar 2014

According to Hielscher, ultrasonication is an effective means to break cell structures. This effect can be used for the extraction of intracellular materials, for example starch from the cell matrix. Ultrasonication generates alternating high-pressure and low-pressure waves in the exposed liquid. During the low-pressure cycle, the ultrasonic waves create small vacuum bubbles in the liquid that collapse violently during a high-pressure cycle. This phenomenon is termed cavitation. The ...

Technical article: specmanship vs reality — data from sensors and transducers download

Sherborne SensorsTue, 18 Mar 2014

Sensors and transducers are used throughout the worlds of science, technology and industry to measure and control physical events. They range from simple devices such as thermocouples to sophisticated sensors used in aerospace applications. Most sensors output their data in an electronic form of one sort or another and it is this signal that forms the analogue of the physical quantity being monitored. But if you want to either specify a sensor or acquire meaningful data from a sensor, ...
