National Instruments has released the NI cRIO-9072 and cRIO-9074 CompactRIO systems that give engineers and machine builders a suitable solution for rapidly deploying industrial machines at high volume.
“This agreement is significant as Wellington’s technology will be in products available through an established, global sales organisation,” WDT managing director Ross Green said.
With NDC Infrared every sensor and every scanning frame comes with its own built-in intelligence for higher speed and greater accuracy in measurement. This distributed intelligence is achieved by a state-of-the-art processing engine called a D-BRIC. Each D-BRIC is smaller than 4 x 6" (10 x 15 cm), yet powerful enough to run an entire gauging system on its own.
Adept Electronic Solutions is opening an office in Melbourne and is celebrating with a Machine Vision Open Day on 22 November.
The WLL190T-2 fibre-optic photoelectric switch from Sick has two programmable switching thresholds per device, an additional analog output and a response time of 60 µs. Together with over 80 different fibre-optic cables in the Sick LL3 series, it is suitable for those tasks where little mounting space is available, the sensor head (ie, the fibre-optic cable) must be adapted to meet the needs of the application, or the sensor (as an evaluation unit) must be installed at a distance to the objects to be detected - due to EMC, high temperatures or chemical effects.
Being able to integrate continuous, batch and hybrid processing technology into an integrated control system with management, analytic and optimisation capabilities has largely eluded industry to date
ABB Australia has launched the ABB Australia and the Society of Automotive Engineers Australasia inaugural National Robotics Innovation competition.
