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.
MIT students modified a 3D printer to enable it to print more than one object and print on top of existing printed objects. All of this was made possible by modifying a Solidoodle with a height measuring laser.
