SENSORS: A broad IR spectrum and wide temperature sensing range from 32 to 2,462F (0 to 1,350C) enable the FT to be used for a variety of applications. The ability to measure IR from distances of up to 3,000 mm (roughly 10 ft) means the sensor head can be mounted far away from harsh environments. An optional air purge enclosure will eliminate dust buildup, increasing sensor stability and decreasing process downtime. The ergonomically designed amplifiers can be panel mounted for easy temperature viewing and setup, or cabinet mounted on a DIN rail. A high-speed response of 10 ms makes the FT the fastest in its class. Combined with a 1.5 mm field of view, the FT-H10 sensor is perfect for thin, fast-moving targets including heat seals, hot melts, heat-treated or hot formed parts. Two visible laser pointers clearly indicate the sensor’s field of view, further simplifying installation. The FT sensors offer multiple functions that expand the scope of applications. The analog output (4-20 mA) can be easily scaled to a user-defined range. Up to four sets of discrete upper and lower-limit outputs and emissivities can be stored to simplify product changeover.
Are you being paid enough? Do you want a better job? According to a recent survey Manpower released just before Engineers Week, employers and engineers don't see eye-to-eye about the state of US engineers' skills and experience.
Two issues have been the bane of the plastics industry for as long as one can remember: The ban on plastic grocery bags and whether the use of bisphenol A (BPA) in plastics such as polycarbonate and PVC is harmful to humans.
One expects to see outlandish apparel at major global fashion events, but New York Fashion Week may have outdone itself, and set a new bar for Paris and Milan, when it put an Ebola jumpsuit in the spotlight.
