The MAC335 is a stationary
universal code reader that is able to read all common 1D and 2D codes (25
different code symbologies). This compact reader with small mounting dimensions
is designed for stationary reading. The MAC335 can read codes within a range from
20 to 300 mm. This means codes can be read reliably without having to mechanically
adjust the lenses or use different lenses or other code reader versions. Its
high resolution of 1.3 megapixels enables it to read both very small and large
codes without having to change settings.
functionality enables the reader to be linked into all common programs and
permits evaluations to be carried out on the reader itself. It is also possible
to perform assignments directly on the reader, for example that this engine
belongs to the vehicle group manufactured on this conveyor, and similar tasks.
This feature often means there is no need for a PC to be installed downstream
for evaluation purposes.
get around the problem of familiarization with operating different code
readers, Pepperl+Fuchs has
developed a standard operator interface, the Vision-Configurator. Using this,
all parameters can be set intuitively and, among other features, images from
the reader can be displayed. This code reader can additionally be parameterized
without the use of operating software via the use of Data Matrix control codes.
The Strati EV car printed at IMTS is made of SABIC's LNP STAT KON AE003. SABIC tells Design News why this carbon fiber-reinforced compound was chosen by Local Motors and Oak Ridge National Laboratories.
The 2014 Ig Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Dr. Kiyoshi Mabuchi and his team members for their work measuring the slipperiness of banana peels. Turns out they're slipperier with the yellow side up.
Many scientists have been working battery-free ways to power wearable electronics that can replace bulky battery packs, particularly through the use of energy-harvesting materials. Now a team of researchers in China have upped the game by developing a lightweight and flexible solar cell that can be woven into two-way energy-harvesting fabric.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
