You must have done a lot of walking, Rob, to get info on all these sensors and control devices. They seemed to be everywhere I went at that show, in my quest for materials, 3D printing & assembly news.
Thanks for sharing Rob. There are a lot of incredible projects in this list.
Beckhoff Automation's EP1816-3008 EtherCAT Box can be very effectively used for energy and money conservation. It might be integrated with the already present EVs to enhance their battery time.
The other product that amazed me was the Bosch Rexroth's EasyHandling system solution. "Rexroth notes that Easy Handling can reduce engineering, assembly, and commissioning time by up to 80 percent." If these stats are correct, then it is truly a great accomplishment for industrial point of view. 80 percent less time in commissioning means 80 percent more production time. Time really is money, when you talk about big industries.
