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.
What should be the perception of a product’s real-world performance with regard to the published spec sheet? While it is easy to assume that the product will operate according to spec, what variables should be considered, and is that a designer obligation or a customer responsibility? Or both?
Biomimicry has already found its way into the development of robots and new materials, with researchers studying animals and nature to come up with new innovations. Now thanks to researchers in Boston, biomimicry could even inform the future of electrical networks for next-generation displays.
