AutomationDirect has extended
its industrial sensors to include the PEW series of stainless steel dc proximity sensors. The shielded 8 mm sensors are flush-mountable
and feature a 2 mm sensing range. Available with either M8 or M12 quick
disconnects, they are equipped with LED status indicators visible at wide
angles, and have PNP outputs. Also added are the LF40 series rectangular
inductive dc proximity sensors. Two shielded and two unshielded models are
available with 20 or 35 mm sensing ranges. The rectangular plastic PNP sensors
provide either normally-open or normally-open/normally-closed complementary
outputs. LF40 series sensor prices start at $39.
An envelope is a common packaging item, usually made of thin flat material. It is designed to contain a flat object, such as a letter or card.
Traditional envelopes are made from sheets of paper cut to one of three shapes: a rhombus, a short-arm cross, or a kite. These shapes allow for the creation of the envelope structure by folding the sheet sides around a central rectangular area. In this manner, a rectangle-faced enclosure is formed with an arrangement of four flaps on the reverse side.
The company says it anticipates high-definition video for home security and other uses will be the next mature technology integrated into the IoT domain, hence the introduction of its MatrixCam devkit.
Siemens and Georgia Institute of Technology are partnering to address limitations in the current additive manufacturing design-to-production chain in an applied research project as part of the federally backed America Makes program.
Most of the new 3D printers and 3D printing technologies in this crop are breaking some boundaries, whether it's build volume-per-dollar ratios, multimaterials printing techniques, or new materials types.
