Opto Diode Introduces the SXUV300C 331 mm2 Photodiode

The company’s full line of IRD ultraviolet photodiodes enables a broad range of UV measurements.

Dec. 15, 2014 - Camarillo, CA - Opto Diode (www.optodiode.com), an ITW company, introduces the SXUV300C photodiode with a large, 22.05 mm x 15.85 mm rectangular active area. These photodiodes detect energy from extreme ultraviolet (UV) wavelengths of 1 nm to 1000 nm. With 331 mm2 of active area, the SXUV300C offers a sizable surface for reflective scatter measurements of high-powered UV lasers. In addition, these photodiodes provide excellent, stable responsivity even after prolonged exposure to high-powered UV radiation.


The company's full line of IRD ultraviolet photodiodes enables a broad range of UV measurements. The IRD product line supports the direct measurement of photons or low-energy electrons, high-power laser measurements in the 1 - 190 nm spectral range, or 100% quantum efficiency from 190 - 1100 nm. Designed to maximize measurement repeatability and reliability, the SXUV300C is ideal for new or existing high-powered UV laser-monitoring systems.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
