CA40 rotatable-head proximity sensor is unaffected by strong electromagnetic ac or dc fields, such as resistance-welding operations. Using the CA40 eliminates false sensor triggering and assures reliable sensor operation even in severe ac or dc weld fields. The model's fully rotatable head allows sensing in any of five positions: the four sides or the top of the sensor. The CA40 can sense all types of metals at the same sensing range, including mild and stainless steel, copper, brass, and aluminum.
Two researchers from Cornell University have won a $100,000 grant from NASA to continue work to develop an energy-harvesting robotic eel the space agency aims to use to explore oceans on one of the moons of Jupiter.
Is the factory smarter than it used to be? From recent buzzwords, you’d think we’ve entered a new dimension in industrial plants, where robots run all physical functions wirelessly and humans do little more than program ever more capable robotics. Some of that is actually true, but it’s been true for a while.
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.
