08 Series of Inductive Sensors are for limited space distance measurement
and positioning applications involving metal targets. The sensors measure 4.7 x
8 x 16 mm and have resolutions of <0.001 mm at sensing distances up to 2 mm
and offer high linearity and repeat accuracy.
08 Series sensors feature an integrated 0 to 10V output to allow them to be
directly connected to the analog outputs of a control system and eliminates the
need for measuring boards or processing units. These IP67-rated sensors are
contained in a die-cast zinc/nickel-plated housing to prevent damage during
installation and operation.
IWFM 08 Series Inductive Sensors are designed for use in factory
automation and assembly/handling applications including:
solar cell/PV manufacturing
These sensors are also useful in highly precise end use
applications such as:
ABI Research, a firm based in the UK that specializes in analyzing global connectivity and other emerging technologies, estimates there will be 40.9 billion active wirelessly interconnected “things” by 2020. The driving force is the usual suspect: the Internet of Things.
Just in time for Earth Day, chemicals leader Bayer MaterialScience reported from the UTECH Europe 2015 polyurethane show on programs and applications using its materials to help reduce energy usage. The company also gave an update on its CO2-based PU as that eco-friendly material comes closer to production.
Solar and wind energy are becoming more viable as a source of energy on the electric grid. For decades, the major drawback to solar and wind was that they’re temperamental. A cloudy day kills solar and a still day renders the wind turbines useless. Automation tools, however, are providing a path to help these renewables become practical.
In honor of Earth Day, the National Security Agency has launched the STEM Recycling Challenge in Maryland schools to encourage kids to think about where the garbage they throw out every day actually goes. The agency has also introduced “Dunk,” a muscular blue cartoon recycling bin wearing shorts and sneakers.
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.
