SENSORS EXPO 2015: EXERGEN EXTENDS MEDICAL TEMP SENSORS TO INDUSTRIAL OEMS

Embedded Computing Design 17-06-2015

I never expected a briefing to begin with a product that is being used to in place of rectal thermometers, but I guess now I can cross that off my bucket list. Exergen is a manufacturer of non-contact temperature sensors, which are currently being used by Philips and GE Healthcare in clinical thermometers. What sets these IR temperature sensors apart Read More...

CASE STUDY

NEUWAVE

NeuWave Medical Inc. develops devices that deliver energy to the human body to treat a variety of serious medical conditions. The company’s Certus® 140 Microwave Ablation System is the premier soft tissue ablation offering worldwide. It is a platform product with expanding capabilities that can be used in interventional or in surgical specialties, during both minimally invasive percutaneous procedures and in open surgery. The Certus 140TM uses microwave energy at 2.45GHz to maximize power delivery and to create large, predictable ablation zones. The product’s small diameter 17-gauge ablation probe more effectively decreases bleeding and other complications when compared with larger diameter probes. Read More...

WHITEPAPER

A CERTIFIED-EMISSIVITY BLACKBODY

As a practical matter, most commercial infrared thermometers are calibrated with “homemade” blackbodies of unknown and uncertified emissivities. This design for a water-immersible certified-emissivity blackbody is intended to provide a simple and inexpensive, but accurate reference for emissivity, referenced to recognized standards and proven mathematical constructions. Francesco Pompei, Exergen Corp. All infrared (IR) thermometry is based on the concept of emissivity, which eventually leads mathematically to the concept of a blackbody. It is the blackbody that provides the only theoretically rigorous link between temperature and the radiated energy of precise quantifiable characteristics. Emissivity is a coefficient from 0 to 1 that compares the emitted energy of an object to that of a theoretical blackbody at the same temperature. Although not always stipulated, the mathematical concepts of emissivity and blackbody require uniform temperature. Read More...

SHOW NEWS

Mission accomplished!! Showtime is over and we are getting ready for – hopefully -- a restful and energizing short break. As some of you may know, we exhibited at Sensor + Test in Nuremberg/Germany and Sensors Expo in Long Beach, California in May and June respectively this year. Making the best out of a show is hard work BUT, as we all know, the outcome can be very rewarding.We introduced our new methodology called Sensoranics (URL Sensoranics press release) at both shows, and we were delighted to see that the news was received with great interest. During both shows, we also spoke with numerous innovative small companies, and with giants like Samsung, (we are now having some interesting discussions with them). The media was also intrigued, and as a result, our products and solutions received good coverage in f.i. Embedded Computing and Automation. We were covered in print, online – and even appeared on TV. Not bad at all.
