TDI the least complex of any gauging system

21 January, 2008 | Supplied by: http://www.tmesystems.com.au/

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.

Fibre-optic photoelectric switch

19 September, 2007 | Supplied by: SICK Pty Ltd

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.
