Wireless Driveway Monitor with Talking Receiver Announces Visitors

The Wireless Battery Driveway Monitor with 4-Channel Voice Receiver (STI-V34150) detects when a vehicle enters or leaves a protected driveway. Ideal for home or office, it uses a patented magnetometer sensor system. Movement of any large metallic (iron or steel) object close to the driveway sensor triggers a signal from the transmitter to the indoor receiver, causing the receiver to sound a voice...

Capacitive Sensor Ensures Optimum Images for Surgical Microscopes

Surgical procedures require a perfect view of the operating area. Surgeons often use surgical microscopes for support. A high-precision capacitive sensor is used to stabilise the microscope's field of view. The lenses of a surgical microscope are attached to long tripod arms. These enable the surgeon to accurately position the microscope and provide the surgical team with more space to manouvre....
