ELECTRONICS: TRI-TRONICS CO. INC. has introduced the first “True Color Sensor” designed to perform as well as an instrument or a spectrometer. The new SMARTEYE® ColorWiseTM Sensor will solve the most difficult color applications at higher speeds than color cameras or other sensors and is ideal for intricate color sorting or inspection problems found in today’s high speed packaging and production lines.
A unique four-channel monitor provides users with a continual visual confirmation of performance. With a choice in speed versus resolution, the performance of the sensor is controlled by the operator, providing a wider range of application solutions.
Features and benefits include: Low cost color solution vs. cameras, other sensors or spectrometers; solves difficult shade-to-shade or color-to color applications; selectable outputs, timers, resolution, speed, etc. to fit any/all applications; four-channel monitor for at-a-glance performance feedback; four digital outputs and three analog outputs; selectable speed versus Resolution; selectable color versus Color + Intensity and captures color from HMI, PLC or remote button.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
