Canfield Connector's Series 8F small,
rugged reed type proximity sensor is designed for applications where critical
magnetic sensing is required. This compact magnetic sensor is small enough to
fit most space requirements and its cylindrical shape is useful for mounting in
either a simple hole or cylindrical opening. The 8F has a tough nylon shell
that is over-molded with polyurethane to create an environmentally resilient
seal from the elements, is corrosion and washdown resistant, compatible with IS
(Intrinsically Safe) barriers and is NEMA 6 and IP67 rated. Also available in a
tab mount version, the 8F can operate in a temperature range from -20 to + 80C,
is shock resistant to 30G and vibration resistant to 20G. A 9 ft cord or an M8
quick connect connector is standard and the 8F is available with either a
normally open or normally closed switch type. Canfield Connector is certified
to ISO 9001 with design and the Series 8F is manufactured in the USA.
When you think of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, you may imagine complex humanoid contraptions made of metal and wires that move like a Terminator Series T-90. But what actually happened at the much-vaunted event was something just a bit different.
Traditional dev kits are based on a manufacturer’s microcontroller, radio module, or sensor device. The idea is to aid the design engineer in developing his or her own IoT prototype as quickly as possible. A not-so-traditional IoT development kit released by Bosch aims to simplify IoT prototyping even further.
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.
