The Q14 proximity sensor, part of the Uprox(reg) family of sensors, features a depth of 14 mm, allowing it to function in confined spaces. The Q14 has an extended sensing range of 10 mm relative to its small size and can be fully embedded in steel without sacrificing any range. The sensor can be mounted further away from the target, minimizing sensor damage and replacement costs. Green and yellow LEDs indicate "power on" and "output energized" to keep users informed of operating status.
The new composites manufacturing innovation center is intended to be a source of grand challenges for industry, like the kind that got us to the moon under JFK. These aren't the words its new CEO Craig Blue used, but that's the idea and the vision behind the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI).
