Category: Measurement technology
Whether in mechanical or electrical engineering, measurement technology components are being used in more and more devices and systems. Reliably precise measuring devices and highly sensitive sensors are required to detect and reduce measurement deviations. The field of Industry 4.0 in particular, with its associated complex control and regulation technology, is dependent on flawless measurement technology products.
In the online magazine “Electronic Competence”, we provide insights into product innovations, trends and current developments!
What role do sensors play in measurement technology? What do energy meters and multimeters have to be able to do? Or: How do developments in the field of measurement technology shape control processes in industry and everyday life?
Optical, non-contact measurement technologies are in the fast lane and have long been just as established in mechanical engineering as tactile methods. Which method will have the edge in the future, or will both techniques be needed for ideal output? Bürklin Elektronik sheds light on the trend development and draws future-oriented conclusions.
For more economic and functional safety in the operation of modern machines and systems, the integration of intelligent devices is required. IO-Link systems offer a solution by integrating them into existing circuits, systems, production facilities and other constellations. We explain what an IO-Link system is, how it is structured and what advantages it brings to the application.
Especially for automation, the precise and reliable collection of information by means of sensor technology is becoming increasingly important in numerous industrial sectors. Find out which measurement techniques and processes are available, what is important when measuring and in which industrial applications intelligent measurement and evaluation systems are becoming increasingly relevant.
Automation is making its way into almost every area of life. This includes the way people get around. The mobility of the future is characterized more than ever by technology - recognizable, for example, in the field of autonomous driving. Find out now what requirements the individual components have to meet in order to meet the expectations for the automation of mobility.
Semiconductor electronics is partly responsible for the world's technological progress. What role does the discovery of silicon play? How has semiconductor electronics evolved since its genesis and what innovative technologies will accelerate progress?
Current flows when voltage is present. Without voltage, there is no current. And to be able to measure electrical voltages, you need voltmeters - also known colloquially as voltmeters . Everything you need to know about the rudimentary structure, basic operation and possible applications of voltmeters is now available for you to read.
Ultrasonic testing and sensors play an important role in the industry in detecting defects in workpieces. But how does ultrasonic testing actually work? In our article, you'll learn not only the basics of UT testing, but also when and why a sound wave is reflected. Read on to discover how this technology helps improve the quality of products.
A world without semiconductors? Hardly imaginable nowadays. Without programmable logics, microprocessors and controllers, nothing would work in our digital and engineered world. And it will stay that way. In recent years, however, it has become clear that microchips and the like are not a dime a dozen. What are the reasons for the acute semiconductor shortage? And: Where are the sought-after components still available?
