Magnetically or RFID-coded safety sensors provide contactless security for doors, hoods and flaps

Many systems and machines require safety devices to prevent unauthorized access or intervention during operation. A simple light grid is in many cases not sufficient, for example, to prevent the escape of noise, heat, dust, etc. from inside presses, robotic cells or injection molding equipment. Conversely, in the food and pharmaceutical industry, hygiene requires that … Continue reading Magnetically or RFID-coded safety sensors provide contactless security for doors, hoods and flaps

Choosing the right PLC panel

Programming logic controller (PLC) panels come in almost every shape and size with some of them being freestanding and others being wall-mounted and choosing the right solution for a particular application can be difficult. David Manney, L&S Electric 11/18/2016 Controlling equipment has always been of interest in industrial applications. Before modern-day computers came into existence, … Continue reading Choosing the right PLC panel

Inductive Factor 1 Sensors

Constant distance towards any metal Inductive Factor 1 sensors offer the great benefit of maintaining the same sensing distance towards all metals. Unlike standard sensors where this value changes, depending on the material. The benefits of Factor 1 sensors are obvious: This uniform distance offers outstanding flexibility in system conception and sensor installation. Contrary to … Continue reading Inductive Factor 1 Sensors

Inductive M12 sensor measures contact-free with 4 nanometer resolution

The resolution of Baumer’s IPRM 12 inductive sensor has been significantly improved. The sensor now measures with a resolution of up to 4 nm, which is to date unmatched in its class. With this performance, it constitutes the ideal solution for monitoring concentricity and vibration of shafts or high precision measurements of manufacturing tolerances and … Continue reading Inductive M12 sensor measures contact-free with 4 nanometer resolution

What Are The Different Types & Applications Of Totalizing Counters?

Totalizers are counters that “total” the number of cycles applied to their inputs. The totalizing function does not provide control outputs or preset limits, although some of our multi-function products have totalizing capability as well as output and control functions. They may be a mechanical counter, electromechanical counter or an electronic counter, all of which … Continue reading What Are The Different Types & Applications Of Totalizing Counters?
