SENSORS: Pepperl+Fuchs Dura-VueTM MLV12 Series Photoelectric Sensors are now available in diffuse mode with background evaluation. Dura-VueTM background evaluation sensors provide a sensing range from 50 to 150 mm, with a 4 mm light spot that enables the sensors to detect even the smallest targets. They are engineered to detect all targets regardless of color or shape, making them well-suited for use in material handling and packaging applications. Dura-VueTM series sensors feature a harsh-duty IP67 rated metal-framed housing with swivel connector and deliver reliable operation in temperatures as low as -40F. Users will also benefit from highly visible front and rear LED status indicators, cross-talk protection and high immunity to ambient light.
When you think of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, you may imagine complex humanoid contraptions made of metal and wires that move like a Terminator Series T-90. But what actually happened at the much-vaunted event was something just a bit different.
Traditional dev kits are based on a manufacturer’s microcontroller, radio module, or sensor device. The idea is to aid the design engineer in developing his or her own IoT prototype as quickly as possible. A not-so-traditional IoT development kit released by Bosch aims to simplify IoT prototyping even further.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
