With unparalleled mounting flexibility, 360 degree status indicators
The low-cost Tru-Vue series photoelectric sensors are compact and feature versatile side-mount or snout-mount options to satisfy various application needs and highly visible 360 degree LED indicators for status indication in all directions and from poor vantage points. They are well suited for material handling, conveyor and assembly applications and can be surface mounted or mounted like 18-mm cylindrical sensors by the threaded nose. Additionally, their compact housing and small 29-mm housing depth make them flexible enough to be mounted where conventional 18-mm cylindrical sensors cannot. Enhanced status LEDs provide diagnostic functions beyond just power and output status. Available sensing modes include diffused, polarized retro-reflective, and non-polarized retro-reflective. Five electrical connection options are available, including cabled, and both pig-tailed and integral connector types. Pepperl+Fuchs http://rbi.ims.ca/4912-547
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.
