Photoelectric Sensor Eliminates Product Gaps On Conveyor Lines


Photoelectric Sensor Eliminates Product Gaps On Conveyor Lines
SICK Inc.
October 31, 2014

Promising to improved production efficiency and reduce costs, the DeltaPac MultiTask photoelectric sensor counts, detects and differentiates between successive packaging items on conveyor belts. The IP 67-rated sensor does not require any backing up, buffering, or mechanical product separation. It features patented Delta-S-Technology, which uses four PinPoint 2.0 LEDs and two receivers with SIRIC ASIC technology. This technology enables the DeltaPac to seamlessly detect corners, folds and grooves regardless of object color, size, surface, or background. With a sensing range from 30 mm to 40 mm to the front edge of the object, the sensor detects up to 200,000 packages per hour.

Automation Light Grid Detects Transparent, Small, And Fast-moving Objects


Automation Light Grid Detects Transparent, Small, And Fast-moving Objects
SICK Inc.
October 31, 2014

The MLG-2 automation light grids tout the speed, resolution, and optical features necessary to reliably detect small, transparent, and fast-moving objects, even under harsh conditions. A beam spacing of 5 mm ensures the thinnest objects are detected while a Transparent Mode function provides measurement, location tracking, and hole tracking on transparent materials. A durable aluminum housing with an enclosure rating up to IP 67 makes the MLG-2 resistant to glare and ambient light. In addition, commissioning can be easily completed using the intuitive display or the company’s SOPAS software tool. Available in two versions, Prime and Pro, the MLG-2 Prime features two analog outputs, up to three switching outputs, and optical synchronization. MLG-2 Pro includes transparent, high-speed and high-resolution modes, wired synchronization, IO-Link 1.1, and troubleshooting via SOPAS software.

360º Position Sensor Gets An Update


360º Position Sensor Gets An Update
Piher Sensors & Controls
October 31, 2014

In its second generation, the non-contacting PSC-360 Hall effect rotary position sensor retains all its original features and adds a magnetic sensor package that eliminates the need for wire harnesses and a separate mating connector. Using triple-rib peripheral silicone rubber seals, the device exceeds the environmental requirements in most off-highway, industrial, marine, agriculture, and heavy equipment applications. Additionally, the PSC-360 IC Sensor offers high temperature capabilities with operational performance between -40ºC to +125ºC and high accuracy over 360º with as little as 0.5% linearity error. Pricing is from $16 each in production quantities. A datasheet is available at http://www.piher-nacesa.com/pdf/psc_360_sensor.pdf

100-GHz Scope Eyes Next-Gen Communication Systems


100-GHz Scope Eyes Next-Gen Communication Systems
Teledyne LeCroy
October 31, 2014

With an eye on emerging communication systems, Teledyne LeCroy’s LabMaster 10-100Zi, 100-GHz oscilloscope was recently used by Alcatel-Lucent to demonstrate the highest-bandwidth coherent optical receiver capable of detecting a 160 GBaud QPSK signal. The LabMaster 10-100Zi is the latest acquisition module in the LabMaster 10 Zi Series of high-performance modular oscilloscopes. The LabMaster 10 Zi platform allows users to build oscilloscopes with high channel counts, even when only one or two channels are in the base model. The oscilloscopes are built from a single LabMaster Master Control Module (MCM-Zi) that contains the display, control, and ChannelSync clock distribution architecture, all managed by a server-class CPU. Users connect up to 20 acquisition modules to build oscilloscopes with as many as 80 channels at 36 GHz, twenty channels at 100 GHz, or anything in between. Pricing for the LabMaster 10-100Zi starts at $900,000.

High-Speed Cameras Enlist Sony & CMOSIS Sensors


High-Speed Cameras Enlist Sony & CMOSIS Sensors
XIMEA GmbH
October 31, 2014

The company’s Thunderbolt-technology ready cameras employ the latest sensors from Sony. These are the IMX174 and CMOSIS CMV20000. As a result, the cameras provide speeds and direct access to computer memory at 10 and 20 Gbit/s respectively. The model MT200 is based on CMV20000 20-Mpix sensors. Full resolution of this CMOS sensor with Global Shutter can be achieved at 30 fps in 12-bit mode. The camera also features an active EF-mount interface for control of dynamic aperture and focus. The model MT023 is integrated with the Sony IMX174 CMOS sensors featuring Pregius technology. The camera delivers full sensor resolution of 2.3 Mpix at 12-bit/pix 128 fps, or 10-bit/pix at 165 fps. Its design features a housing measuring 26 mm x 26 mm x 38 mm and can be bus powered.

CAN Cards Ride The PCI Bus


CAN Cards Ride The PCI Bus
HMS Industrial Networks Inc.
October 31, 2014

The CAN-IB300/PCI and CAN-IB400/PCI CAN cards for the PCI bus are expandable via modules with up to four CAN interfaces and come with an extensive driver and tool suite support. Due to their modular design, the new CAN-IB interfaces can be used in a wide variety of applications. Including the four high-speed CAN channels, the low-speed CAN standard is also supported and the interfaces can be equipped with up to four LIN or K-Line interfaces as well as user-specific interfaces upon request. The CAN-IB300/PCI is a cost-efficient passive card while the active CAN-IB400/PCI has a powerful 32-bit micro-controller system that enables intelligent handling and active filtering of the messages to be sent and received on the card. Both cards are supported by the IXXAT Windows driver packages (VCI) and the real-time driver packages (ECI for Linux, RTX, Intime, QNX, VxWorks). Similarly, IXXAT APIs for CANopen and SAE J1939 support the interfaces. For the analysis of CAN and CAN-FD networks, a Windows-based analytical tool with the IXXAT canAnalyser is available.
