    06/10/15 | MR303 Linear Encoder Wins Sensors Expo Innovation Award
    Micronor was presented with the 2015 BEST OF SENSORS EXPO SILVER INNOVATION AWARD for the new MR303 Fiber Optic Linear Encoder. Mat Dirjish, Executive Editor of Sensors Magazine presented the awards at Sensors Expo & Conference at the Wednesday reception on June 10, 2015 at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, California.
    “The caliber and magnitude of the nominations received directly reflects the increased momentum and innovative spirit of the sensors industry,” said Dirjish. “We are pleased to shine a spotlight on the trail blazers of this industry, evangelizing the power of sensors to make a significant impact on our world. We extend our congratulations to all the winners and look forward to their continued contributions to this industry.”
    The MR303 is the world’s first commercially-available MRI Safe linear position sensor system for OEM motion control applications. With 100µm resolution and 50µm accuracy, this innovative sensor is the ideal solution for medical, MRI, robotic and industrial applications where position and speed must be precisely monitored, and electromagnetic immunity and invisibility is required. The high precision linear encoder provides the means for performance enhancements of existing MRI systems as well as enabling new MRI applications and medical devices. Applications include MRI cradle position monitoring, MRI robots and MRI phantom training organs.

    02/12/15 | Micronor Exhibits at SPIE Photonics West
    MICRONOR exhibited at the SPIE Photonics West Exhibition and Conference held 10-12 February 2015 at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco.
    The booth featured a very "hands on" Touch Me and Turn Me experience of our fiber optic position and temperature sensors. The two Microsoft Surface tablets in the background displayed the real-time spectral analysis and parameter output taking place inside the corresponding signal conditioners. For temperature, a TS3 probe in the front was connected via a fiber optic cable running on the floor of the booth to a FOTEMP2 benchtop interface unit mounted in the corresponding rear pedestal. For position, a MR332 absolute rotary encoder was connected via a fiber optic link to a MR330-1 Controller Module.
    The show also marked the debut of the new MR302 Series Fiber Optic "Mini" Rotary and Linear Encoders. Download the new Fiber Optic Kinetic Sensors brochure.

    10/01/14 | Inherently Safe ESTOP Operates to 2500 Meters
    MICRONOR introduces the MR380 Fiber Optic Emergency Stop Pushbutton System which is an inherently safe, ESTOP functional safety compliant solution for industrial automation, robotic, medical, mines and other harsh/hazardous environmental applications. The system consists of a passive ESTOP pushbutton Sensor which connects to a remote DIN rail mount Controller Module via an industry standard OM1 duplex 62.5/125 multimode fiber optic link. The MR380 series has a generous system loss budget, allows for long distance operation, complex routing and daisy chaining of multiple swtiches.

    05/23/14 | ECN Article features Micronor MRI Safe Fiber Optic Sensors
    The May-2014 issue of Electronic Component News (ECN) magazine features the Micronor article Fiber Optic Sensors Enable New MRI Applications. The article provides an overview of fiber optic sensors and highlights 3 case studies utilizing Micronor MRI safe sensors:
  • MRI safe patient padaling system (Marquette University)
  • MRI safe treadmill for advanced cardiac stress testing (EXCMR)
  • MRI safe device for studying mechanics of traumatic brain injury (The Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine)
