LORD Corporation to Showcase Expanded Sensing Offerings at Sensors Expo 2016

(Cary, N.C. – June 8, 2016) – LORD Corporation – a leader in the inertial and wireless sensing systems – will showcase a variety of expanded sensing offerings at the upcoming Sensors Expo & Conference, to be held June 21-23, 2016, in San Jose, CA.

According to Andy Winzenz, Commercial Director, Sensing, LORD Corporation continues to expand and unify its sensing offerings. “Building on the acquisitions of the assets of two sensing companies, MicroStrain® and Stellar Technology, Inc., during the last few years, LORD is also expanding its ability to develop solutions for our customers with unique sensing needs,” said Winzenz.

Technology acquired from MicroStrain and Stellar are now both part of the LORD Sensing brand. In 2014 LORD completed the acquisition of the assets of Stellar Technology, Inc., a privately-held sensing solutions company headquartered in Amherst, New York, specializing in pressure, load, force, torque, displacement and temperature sensors. The acquisition of the assets of MicroStrain, Inc. in 2013 strengthened LORD Corporation’s sensing portfolio through the addition of inertial measurement systems, micro-displacement transducers, wireless sensor networks and innovative software technology. Solutions range from rapidly deployed test and measurement to customized OEM solutions. Applications include structural health monitoring, condition-based maintenance, navigation and control, environmental monitoring, and rotating component health.

“We are excited to share our expanded sensing products and capabilities at the Sensors Expo,” said Winzenz. “Today we can provide customers with an ever-growing range of standard and customized solutions. You will find a variety of product and sensing system demonstrations throughout our booth.”
One of the highlighted products is the Torque-Link wireless sensor, providing torsional strain measurements from shafts spinning at speeds up to 4,200 rpm, without the need for expensive wiring or burdensome slip-rings. Other wireless-enabled demos featured at Sensors Expo include LORD Sensing “cable-less” pressure, load, and temperature sensing systems and the new SensorConnect™ programmable interface for data aggregation, storage, and analysis.

Another product being showcased is the new Demod-DVRT2 high-performance displacement sensor signal conditioner. Utilizing its dramatically reduced noise floor, this new electronics package improves sensing resolution as much as 10 times the previous generation product.

As part of an inertial sensor display, LORD will showcase its new 3DM-GX5 line of inertial products, including GNSS/INS, AHRS, and IMU units. The GX5’s innovative Auto-Adaptive AHRS accelerometer has been proven to provide outstanding accuracy during field tests, with an almost negligible roll error during turns and other sudden course shifts.
