Scientific Technologies Inc. introduces the world's most compact Type 3 safety
laser scanner - the OS32C
Safety Laser Scanner. Its 104.5-mm profile, 1.3 kg weight and 5W power
consumption (3.75W in standby mode) combine with innovative features such as highly
flexible and easily configurable detection zones to make the OS32C a powerful
Some of the OS32C's most significant benefits include:
and easier equipment commissioning and troubleshooting with Patented Individual
to four times faster MTTR than other safety laser scanners, with lower
maintenance cost and manufacturing down time cost from equipment damage.
monitoring over LAN via the integrated Ethernet Port.
profile equipment designs thanks to the world's smallest footprint, which
is particularly significant in material handling applications.
power consumption, which is perfect for battery-powered mobile
Safety Laser Scanner features a 270-degree detection angle that enables a
single scanner to provide presence detection, including two warning zones and
one safety zone, on two sides of a machine.
Its small size also means that it can be used inside a machine.
vertically, the OS32C serves as a complete intrusion detection solution. The
unit's innovative Reference Boundary Monitoring function constantly monitors
reference points and turns off the safety outputs when a shift in its physical position
is detected. This prevents unauthorized mounting modifications to the laser
Safety Laser Scanner is also a robust and flexible collision avoidance solution
that can provide front/rear monitoring, or 270-degree monitoring, in AGV
applications. The OS32C's light weight and compact body make it easy to
install, and its low power consumption minimizes battery load. For complex AGV tracks
up to 70 zone set combinations can be set, each with one safety zone of up to 3m
and two warning zones of up to 10m. The two warning zones can be set to support
various purposes, such as warning sound and speed control.
With erupting concern over police brutality, law enforcement agencies are turning to body-worn cameras to collect evidence and protect police and suspects. But how do they work? And are they even really effective?
A half century ago, cars were still built by people, not robots. Even on some of the country’s longest assembly lines, human workers installed windows, doors, hoods, engines, windshields, and batteries, with no robotic aid.
DuPont's Hytrel elastomer long used in automotive applications has been used to improve the way marine mooring lines are connected to things like fish farms, oil & gas installations, buoys, and wave energy devices. The new bellow design of the Dynamic Tethers wave protection system acts like a shock absorber, reducing peak loads as much as 70%.
