ABB Robotics (Auburn Hills, MI) has
introduced Integrated Vision, a powerful smart camera system that makes
vision-guided robotics applications
faster and easier to deploy.
Using 2D vision guidance, ABB
Integrated Vision allows manufacturers
to: track products more accurately,
improve supply chain management,
improve quality, troubleshoot
challenging lines and processes,
and significantly expand use of
robotic automation. Features include:
■ Sophisticated imaging technologies,
such as the patented PatMax algo-
rithm, for advanced part location.
■ A PC-based programming tool.
■ A smart camera that interfaces directly with the robot.
Magnetic Angle Sensor
ASM (Elmhurst, IL) has introduced PRAS26, an extension of its product series of angle sensors
for automated applications. This product line offers an absolute output signal over the entire measurement range from 0° to 360°, and is based on an external position magnet. Features include:
■ An external position magnet for constant wear-free operation.
Submersible Pressure Transducers
PT-500 submersible pressure transducers from Automation
Products Group (APG) (Logan, UT) are available with additional output, cabling, cage, vent cap, and installation options.
The result is highly robust and reliable performance to
suit specific application needs in the most challenging
environments. Features include:
■ A 4-20 mA output.
■ Availability with Modbus, 0 to 5 VDC, and mV/V.
■ A traditional cage or a patented removable cage that
can be reused.
■ A Class 1, Division 1 intrinsically safe certification.
NTC Temperature Sensor Technology
TDK Corporation (Iselin, NJ) has developed advancements in technology of EPCOS NTC temperature sensors, which satisfy requirements of
the RoHS directive and feature high precision and durability. Currently
in the prototype stage, the new product range will include both NTC
temperature sensors with lead wire spacing and leaded mini-sensors
implemented with insulated terminal wires as well as bare wires.
■ A halogen- and lead-free composition.
■ A high resistance to ion migration at the terminals.
■ Rated resistances (R25) 2 to 100 kΩ.
■ Hermetically sealed terminal wire
solder joints, with a halogen-free
silicone elastomer encapsulation.
■ A narrow tolerance of 0.1 K in a
range fom 0° to 70°C.
■ A 9. 5 mm height.
■ Analog outputs that
include 0.5 to 4. 5
V, 0.5 to 10 V,
or 4 to 20 mA.
