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
United Launch Alliance will fly 3D-printed flight hardeware parts on its rockets starting next year with the Atlas V. The company's Vulcan next-gen launch vehicle will have more than 100 production parts made with 3D printing. The main driver? Parts consolidation and 57% lower production costs.
The new small-form-factor EZ-BLE PRoC (Programmable Radio on Chip) module is a derivative of the existing PRoC BLE Programmable Radio-on-Chip solution. The EZ-BLE PRoC module integrates the programmability and ARM Cortex-M0 core of the PRoC BLE, two crystals, an onboard chip antenna, a metal shield, and passive components.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
