Photoelectric Sensors
Sometimes known as photo eyes, photoelectric sensors emit a beam of light that is used to detect the presence or absence of items and equipment, or changes in surface conditions.  When the emitted light is interrupted or reflected back by the object, the change in light patterns is measured by a receiver, thus the target […]
LWIR (Long-Wave Infrared Imaging) Becomes More Accessible
We live in a day and age where new technologies are being brought to the market at what seems like lightening speed. One advancement leads to another, and then another. New products, based on emerging technologies are continuously being launched.   One such technological advance is long-wave infrared – LWIR – imaging, also known as thermal […]
Using Lidar Technology In Archeology
Lidar, short for light detection and ranging – is a key tool for archeologists around the world. Using lidar technology in archeology is quickly taking the place of radar in the attempts to detect more buildings and other structures.
Passive Infrared Sensors
The use of motion detectors to keep an eye on the public has been increasing steadily over the past decade.  These ubiquitous pyroelectric eyes (passive infrared sensors) can detect everything from thieves breaking into a house to when customers enter the supermarket. Early designs were unreliable, as they would often time out, leaving the operator […]
Using CCTV At The Workplace And At Home
One of the most popular and cost-effective ways of providing security in the home and place of work is with CCTV cameras and equipment. CCTV cameras can act as a very successful deterrent to thieves and burglars, certainly making them think twice at the very least. Banks, and other financial institutions have employed the use of cameras for several […]
Images From Space
Globally, the fascination with deep space began in the early 1900’s. Since them, imaging satellites are launched in an ongoing effort to see space more accurately. The images from space sent back will help researchers and scientists gain a clearer understanding of our planetary neighbors and how they affect life on earth.
