The EEx HOG 161 incremental heavy-duty encoder from Baumer is compliant to both ATEX Directive 94/9/EG for potentially explosive atmospheres (II 2 G Ex d e IIC T6 Gb) and IECEx scheme (Ex d e IIC T6 Gb), allowing deployment in any of the 30 countries worldwide that have adopted the IECEx standard.
S8 Series of photoelectric sensors is an innovative solution for diffuse proximity detection of transparent objects without a prismatic reflector, even for the detection of highly reflective objects like glass.
A plant-wide energy monitoring solution, EnergyPAQ from Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc., helps users reduce energy consumption and costs by providing accurate measurement of the amount of energy used within their facilities.
Balluff’s new line of miniature sensors include inductive, photoelectric, magnetic, capacitive, and ultrasonic; compact inductive couplers, space-saving I/O modules, and RFID in miniature versions are available for each sensor.
A new range of Background Suppression (BGS) Photoelectric Sensors in Carlo Gavazzi’s PA18 and PH18 housings provide precise distance detection and a fine distinction between a target and its background, with the flexibility of an industry standard housing.
With Balluff’s BVS vision sensor with built-in infrared lighting and integrated daylight filter, visible ambient light cannot affect image quality or stability of an inspection, greatly increasing inspection and process reliability; and because the sensor’s light is invisible to the human eye, it removes intrusive flickering to the operator, eliminating the need for shielding or desire to tamper with the sensor to minimize the lights effects.
Available in four sensing modes, the R2 Series Ultra-Small Sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs feature a 24 mm x 7.5 mm x 11.2 mm housing, industry standard mounting footprint, a flush and wear-resistant antistatic glass lens and a 45° cable outlet to maximize mounting flexibility.
