"Flat Pack" sensors are 35 x 55 x 15 mm, and the housing is for the conveying and material handling industries, or any application where space may be limited. The four available sensing principles include: Inductive Sensing, with ranges of 10 or 15 mm; Capacitive Sensing, with adjustable range from 3 to 25 mm, Photoelectric Diffuse Sensing, from 50 to 200 mm; or Through Beam Sensing, up to 5m. The sensors are constructed with impact-resistant polycarbonate, featuring ultrasonic welding to ensure an IP 67/NEMA 4X protection rating.

In many engineering workplaces, there’s a generational conflict between recent engineering graduates and older, more experienced engineers. However, a recent study published in the psychology journal Cognition suggests that both may have something to learn from another group: 4 year olds.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
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.
