Lower noise photodiode-preamplifier combo
A manufacturer of infrared LEDs has introduced a lower noise component photodiode-preamplifier for low-light tasks, such as fluorescence.
The NIR/Red Enhanced 6mm2 ODA-6W-100M Photodetector-Preamplifier, made by Opto Diode Corp., features shielded amplifier electronics and is more compact than discrete solutions.
The high-sensitivity combo device is ideal for assembly in tight or limited spaces.
The combo is housed in a hermetically sealed TO-39 can for easy integration.

Remote center of compliance device
There’s a new remote center of compliance tool that can be used to correct alignment errors for peg-in-hole automated assembly applications.
ATI Industrial Automation has released its Compensator device that automatically makes corrections for lateral and rotational misalignment. The device can reduce contact force and eliminate virtually any galling and jamming of assembly machines.
The device provides rapid insertion correction, which allows high-speed automated machines to be productive by minimizing scrap, downtime and machine damage.
