ELECTRONICS: Bulletin 871TS inductive proximity sensors were designed to withstand high pressure washdown applications in the food and beverage industry. These sensors also offer a high resistance to corrosion caused by cleansing and exposure to disinfecting agents.The switch body consists of a PPS (FDA Certified) plastic face and threaded stainless steel 316L barrel. These switches meet NEMA 1, 2, 3, 3R, 4, 4X, 6, 6P, 12, 13 and IP67, IP68 and IP69K enclosure standards.
Features include: four-wire operation (complementary normally open and normallly closed outputs); gold-plated 4-pin micro quickdisconnect; 10-30V dc; standard and extended sensing range versions, IP67, IP68 and IP69K enclosure ratings; stainless-steel 316L barrel; FDA Certified, PPS sensing face; extended temperature rating (-40 to 80C (-40 to 176F)); short circuit, false pulse, reverse polarity, overload and transient noise protection; and cULus Listed and CE Marked for all applicable directives.
The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that devices, gadgets, and appliances we use every day will be able to communicate with one another. This potential is not limited to household items or smartphones, but also things we find in our yard and garden, as evidenced by a recent challenge from the element14 design community.
If you didn't realize that PowerPoint presentations are inherently hilarious, you have to see Don McMillan take one apart. McMillan -- aka the Technically Funny Comic -- worked for 10 years as an engineer before he switched to stand-up comedy.
