Exhibitors in the Sensors Pavilion at Manufacturing Week are pushing
technology forward in many systems, meeting varied applications in the diverse
industrial automation field.
Mikron Infrared of Oakland, NJ is unveiling a non-contact temperature
measurement system that is one of the first that can work with shiny metals.
Itís also one of the fastest monitors in the market, checking temperature in
just 500 microseconds. The sensor can detect temperatures as low as 122 degrees
F, even with shiny metals. Thatís usually a problem, since reflections can cause
remote sensors to read temperatures of reflected objects, not the desired metal
High accuracy and load capability are the keys of a High Capacity
Series Load cells from Interface Inc. of Scottsdale, AZ. The companyís
proprietary strain gage technology provides high temperature compensation and
high output and circuit efficiency. The lineís capacity runs up to 1,000 kilos.
The system is packaged in frame that can hold 1 million pounds.
Saving time is the key benefit of the EVN series electro mechanical switches
from Honeywell Sensing and Control of Freeport, IL. The switches, originally
developed for use in elevators in Europe, have simplified techniques for
attaching wires, cutting installation time by as much as 50%.
The High Capacity Line from Interface can
weight loads up to 1,000
