sensor will fit into a space as short as 6mm allowing it to fit in tight
spaces. The SuperShorty models have the capability to install sensors directly
into grippers or fast moving machinery, with frequency ratings up to 3 kHz,
such as pick and place machinery - without adversely affecting their performance
size or weight. All models are reverse polarity protected, short circuit
protected, IP65 or IP67 rated and have a current capacity of 150 mA.
SuperShorty is available in three housing styles: 6.5 mm smooth metal, M8
threaded stainless steel, and 6.5 mm plastic - all offering maximum flexibility
in most micro sized application. The smooth or knurled plastic housing
offers the user the ability to install the sensor by press fit or glue rather
than mounting hardware or tapped holes. With 90-degree cable exits, the
sensors can also be used in small spaces while eliminating cable bend issues. SuperShorty
inductive sensors with 1.5 mm sensing range are available in both PNP and NPN
and both normally open and normally closed versions. Connection options
include cable out, M8 quick disconnect and pigtail versions with M8 connectors.
The 3D printing revolution seems to have a knack for quickly moving technology ahead by way of collaborative effort and even a little friendly competition -- all of course in the name of scientific advancement.
Advantech has launched a new series of motion-control I/O modules to meet the increased demands that come with more distributed industrial systems that require control of a growing number of axes and devices.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
