The F77 Series Ultrasonic Sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs are designed to be an alternative to background suppression photoelectric sensors in dirty and dusty application environments, and in applications where color variations or transparent targets are the norm.
Omron Automation & Safety has introduced the new A22R series of cost-effective 22-mm diameter pushbuttons and selector switches with a gleaming metal bezel that offers panel builders a tasteful contemporary appearance for machine controls. The switch units allow configuration changes to match contact requirements and are quickly serviced with plug-in replacements. The A22R series is available in a wide range of colors; lighted models are notable for their uniform illumination.
Essex, a leader in textile manufacturing equipment, has brought customers breakthrough quality, time and cost benefits with Opti-Sense technology - and a little help from Omron's E3X-DA6P fiber optic sensor and CP1L programmable logic controller.
Designed for applications that require frequent cleaning with chemicals found in food and beverage applications or where the sensor is exposed to wet environments, TURCK’s Q42 long-range inductive proximity sensor using FDA rated materials is available in a top-facing model and front-facing model.
Pepperl+Fuchs’ ML6 Series subminiature photoelectric sensors are now available with dual sensor redundant detection and independent outputs, long-range background suppression sensing models and retroreflective sensing models with no sensing deadband.
Omron Industrial Automation has introduced E3X-HD fiber-optic sensor amplifiers with ultra-stable performance and smart tuning for high-speed, reliable input to open protocol industrial networks, including EtherCAT and CompoNet.
Said to be as reliable as a light barrier and as straightforward as a diffuse sensor, Baumer’s photoelectric sensors with the new SmartReflect principle provide object detection by creating a closed light beam between the sensor and machine part.
