| OEM Controller for Fiber Optic E-Stop and Signaling Sensors
With its simplistic design and interfaces, the MR380-0 OEM Controller from Micronor provides a low cost, turn-key solution for OEM manufacturers and control system providers integrating any of the Micronor MR38X series ZapFREE® Fiber Optic Signaling Sensors into their product. The sensor range includes Emergency Stop, E-Actuator, U-Beam, Key Switch, Push Button, Foot Switch and Microswitch sensors.
| New Single-Mode E-Stop Option Reaches To 20km
MICRONOR's MR381/MR387 Fiber Optic Emergency Stop and Emergency Actuator can now reach up to 20km with new single-mode fiber option. This new option complements the existing 850nm and 1310nm multi-mode fiber options to cover the full range of Short, Medium and Long Haul applications. The MR380-1-3 1310nm Single-Mode Controller has a generous 25dB system loss budget which allows for long distance operation, complex routing and daisy chaining of multiple switches.

| MR303 Linear Encoder Wins Sensors Expo Innovation Award
Micronor was presented 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.
| Micronor Exhibited at 2015 Sensors Expo in Long Beach-CA
MICRONOR exhibited at Sensors Expo 2015, June 9-11, 2015 at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, California. The booth featured a very hands-on demonstration of our fiber optic position and temperature sensors. These sensors operate in the spectral domain which eliminates effects of variable optical fiber, cable, connector and bend losses.
As part of the Technical Program, President/Chief Engineer Robert Rickenbach presented Fiber Optic Position Sensors-Applications and Lessons Learned.

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
The show also marked the debut of the new MR302 Series Fiber Optic "Mini" Rotary and
Linear Encoders. Download the new Fiber Optic
