Usually, optical laser measurement systems or radar sensors are used for displacement and distance measurements over long distances of up to several hundred meters. However, these optical distance sensors do not work reliable in the long term under all environmental conditionsRead more
This post is about a special designed capacitive proximity Sensor rated for high-temperature and high-pressure to detect the resin fill level inside the Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM Process) mould.Read more
Optoelectrical sensors are widely used in industrial automation. Clean, dust-free and dry environment is usually essential for proper operation of photoeyes. In many applications in dirty and harsh environment, optical sensors are still the best choice. For instance in steel mills we find extreme heat in steel and metal production.Read more
When we talk about automation our main focus is on controllers, sensors and actuators. But also power supplies and connectors are important componts for the efficient setup and success of automation solutions. Power supplies with condition monitoring functions can help you to improve the lifetime of your systemRead more
Do you want to understand the foundations of automation? Is it your job to make production more productive, efficient and secure? Are you asking yourself how to open up the potential of Industry 4.0?
With Basics of Automation we will provide you with the answers. Profit from our knowledge and experience – well-founded, practical, and explained fast and simple.
A machine’s automation system operates very much like the human body. Just as we humans perceive our surroundings using our sensory organs, a machine registers its surroundings using presence sensors, input devices, and measuring systems.Read more
This post is about a non-contact infrared temperature sensor. You will read about the benefits for modern production processes that involve objects with very high temperature. Typical applications for this kind of sensors are in metallurgy and glass production. Everywhere liquid or molten metals is present and being processed.Read more
