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:
Robots that walk have come a long way from simple barebones walking machines or pairs of legs without an upper body and head. Much of the research these days focuses on making more humanoid robots. But they are not all created equal.
The IEEE Computer Society has named the top 10 trends for 2014. You can expect the convergence of cloud computing and mobile devices, advances in health care data and devices, as well as privacy issues in social media to make the headlines. And 3D printing came out of nowhere to make a big splash.
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.
