CONTROL PLATFORM A new control platform for Sigma Systems’ cryogenically and mechanically cooled thermal chambers and plates has been introduced by Thermonics. Burn-in and testing of components, sensors, and PCBs typically involves temperature cycling from two to four points, which can be time consuming to set up and run. The new TS Controller provides touch-screen and remote interfacing to set up and transfer thermal profiles, view data and trends, and log diagnostics. Setting up test parameters (from -185 to +500°C) such as set points, ramp speed, hold time, probe source, auxiliary ports, and number of temperature loops is faster than previous systems. Display status includes temperature data and trends for the device under test, the chamber and set points. Diagnostics such as cryo valve usage, ambient temperature, chiller and blower runtimes, and enclosure temperature assists with maintaining system performance. An optional independent fail safe protects units under test from damage.

The HP-O probe’s 3 millimeter diameter and measurement range of up to 20 millimeters provide access to points that are not accessible to tactile probes. The device exerts no physical impact on a part, delivering force free measurement of blisks, blades, gear profiles and flank lines, without a loss of accuracy. With an acceptance angle of ±30 degrees, the probe can measure difficult to access features at a scanning speed of 1,000 points per second for rapid throughput.

I-360 SUITE HANDHELD SCANNING DEVICES Automated Precision Inc. announced the newest generation of its I-360 suite of handheld probing and scanning accessories to the Radian Laser Tracker. All three models in the I-360 suite have been updated. The wireless I-Probe model now offers a third port for attaching styli which offers measurement accuracies greater than 3 thousandths of an inch. The I-Scan II model has a new HD camera that can collect points across surfaces that are traditionally difficult for scanners to measure. The I-360 model is a combination unit of the I-Probe and I-Scan II that weighs only 2.5 pounds and can be used for a wide range of applications. AUTOMATED PRECISION INC.
