Series Photoelectric Sensors sense distances of up to 30m (98 ft), with
greater signal strength to reliably "see" through more contaminants that
collect on the sensor lens. The new light spot also facilitates easier
alignment, even to small objects or reflectors. The ML100 series is cULus
The ML100 provides
automatic crosstalk protection, meaning that two ML100 sensors can be used
together without any mounting restrictions. They are also highly immune to
ambient light, even in environments using high frequency energy-saving
fluorescent lights. A broader temperature rating (-30 to 60C; -22 to 140F) means
the ML100 provides reliable operation in bothlower temperature and higher temperature environments, including
cold storage areas.
Truchard will be presented the award at the 2014 Golden Mousetrap Awards ceremony during the co-located events Pacific Design & Manufacturing, MD&M West, WestPack, PLASTEC West, Electronics West, ATX West, and AeroCon.
In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
