Sensor | News for automated Industry 4.0 manufacturing

kuebler1219Kübler presents its new generation Industrial Ethernet encoder, which differs technically and mechanically from existing fieldbus encoders. Thanks to the new technical platform, the "Sendix F58" Profinet IO encoders can also be integrated into Profidrive and Profienergy networks. With the new generation, the well-known fieldbush cover will be replaced by the new design. This saves additional construction depth.

2D lidar sensorSuccess Story

Pepperl + Fuchs has worked in close partnership with montratec a customized one 2D lidar sensor developed for a more flexible transport shuttle based on the specially developed Pulse Range Technology. This allows a distinction to be made between permanently installed track sections such as tunnels or curves. This was not possible before and not easy either, as this user report shows:

Baumer Magnetic encoder of the Series EAM580 / 360 work particularly reliably and precisely. The magnetic absolute encoders work with an angular accuracy of ± 0,15 degrees and thus enable precise positioning in the application.

Will a new sensor from Baumer Once installed in a machine, various parameters such as switching point, switching window, filter, sound beam width, output logic must first be set to the application. The parameter server function is over the IO-Link interface the solution for a parameter transfer within seconds.

In order to promote digital networking by means of universal, standardized interfaces, the network "Umati" (universal machine tool interface) has been established. Lenord + Bauer participates in the project with intelligent built-in encoders, which make it possible to transfer process data in standard language. This results in new approaches to condition monitoring.

The Schmersal group has introduced the first RFID-based safety sensor, which has been designed in accordance with the Atex 2014 / 34 / EU directive and can be used in Ex zones 2 (Gas-Ex, category 3G) and 22 (dust-ex, category 3D). Thus, the EX-RSS16 combines two essential features for the safety of systems: the functional safety according to ISO 13849 and the explosion protection.
