Photoelectric cube sensor

  The newly developed photoelectric OI cube sensor from Ifm Electronic is distinguished by long ranges up to 800 mm for diffuse types and up to 15 m for retro-reflective types. For diffuse type sensors the range can be set precisely using the multi-turn potentiometer and is shown on a scale. Even under harsh industrial […]

Optical turbidity measurement

  To control and measure the quality of water, Assttech now offers the Jumo ecoLine NTU turbidity sensor. Particularly suited for water with low to medium turbidity, applications include drinking water monitoring, municipal and industrial wastewater treatment, final wastewater inspection, monitoring of bodies of water or in fish farming operations. The measuring principle is based […]

New sales centres in growth markets

The thermal camera is compact, easy to handle, and has a large display for a comprehensive overview of temperature differences while […]

Company extends its range of sensors and components

  Omron Electronics, which manufactures over 1-million cylindrical photoelectric sensors each year, has introduced a new range of sensors and components as part of a programme the company calls its 361-degree approach. This programme offers three distinct lines within each component (power supplies, temperature controllers, timers, industrial relays, and monitoring relays) or sensor (photoelectric, fibre-optic, […]

Open-source design environment for “internet of things” applications

  RS Components now stocks Arduino Yún, the first member of a new family of wireless products that integrate the open-source Arduino architecture with Linux. Arduino Yún, meaning “‘cloud” in Chinese, combines the existing Arduino Leonardo, based on Atmel’s ATmega32u4 8-bit microcontroller, with an embedded Atheros AR9331 Wi-Fi system-on-chip (SoC) running Linino, a MIPS GNU/Linux […]

Sensing and connectivity for Bluetooth low energy comms

EBV Elektronik has announced sensorTAG, an innovative product that demonstrates various sensing technologies around a Bluetooth low energy (BLE) communication link in a small form factor. This new release from EBV is said to be  a one-stop-shop with sensorTAG, a battery-powered sensor hub, and a USB-to-BLE nanoDONGLE (9 x 17 mm). It provides an industry-standard sensor […]

Radar sensors for detecting moving or stationary objects

  Banner Engineering has expanded its line of R-Gage QT50R radar sensors with four new models to reliably detect moving or stationary objects. Designed to meet flexible application requirements and weather conditions, the enhanced line of radar sensors is ideal for collision avoidance on mobile equipment, outdoor crane-to-crane proximity detection, high-volume parking and vehicle detection […]

Differential pressure level measurement of pressurised tanks

  Keller has outfitted Linde AG with differential pressure transmitters at their Munich headquarters. The PRD33X series was developed for applications that require a high accuracy differential pressure measurement together with high overload resistance in differential pressure ranges as low as 350 mbar. Linde currently has 3000 cold converter tanks with a filling level of […]

Ultrasonic sensors for switching and measuring

  Longer operating ranges and broader areas of application are two of the features offered by Leuze’s two new ultrasonic sensors. Suitable for switching and measuring applications, the new devices effectively expand the Leuze line of ultrasonic sensors. The Leuze HTU 418B and Leuze DMU 418B switching and measuring devices have an operating range of up […]
