The UR Cobots are packed with truly amazing benefits.
Universal Robots has reinvented industrial robotics with lightweight, flexible robot arms called Cobots or collaborative robots. Tasks previously thought impossible to automate due to cost and complexity, are now achievable with the user-friendly robots.
Patented technology lets operators with no programming experience quickly set up and operate the UR cobots with intuitive, 3D visualization. Simply move the robot arm to desired waypoints or touch the arrow keys on the easy-to-use touchscreen tablet.
Fast set up:
Universal Robots has revolutionized the Cobot set-up, reducing typical robotic deployment measured in weeks to a matter of hours. The average set-up time reported by their customers is only half a day. The out-of-box experience for...
Now with the Open Source One-Cable-Technology BiSS LINE:
POSITAL’s new family of kit encoders provide the manufacturers of motors and other machinery with rugged, accurate and cost-efficient tools for building rotary position feedback into their products. The new kit encoders are based on POSITAL’s highly successful self-contained magnetic rotary encoders. Now however, the core components of these instruments are available as separate assemblies that can be readily integrated into other products.
• Asynchronous RS485 Interface, 4-Wire Configuration
• Open Standard: BiSS Line
• Smart Multiturn – Wiegand Technology – No Battery, No Gear!
• Compact Single PCB Design
• Auto-Calibration – No Mechanical Adjustment
• Insensitive to Dust and Moisture
Silicon nitride ceramic balls round out a diverse selection
After 70+ years of producing high-quality precision balls, Thomson can outfit any custom solution for your application. In addition to chrome and 440C stainless steel, their silicon nitride balls are popular in bearing designs and other high-precision products.
Silicon nitride precision balls:
• Excel in low-noise, high-rigidity and high-load-carrying machines.
• Can be run dry in a vacuum environment and up to 500°F without lubrication.
Generally, when you hook up your encoder, it's already configured to provide the correct digital outputs. Those outputs then feed directly to a counter, controller, or other device. However, in some applications the encoder signal needs optimization to reach the receiving device over long distances. You might also need to provide the encoder signal to more than one device. That's where Encoder’s RX/TX products come in.
The RX/TXD is an all-in-one device can modify, split, or repeat an encoder's signal -- and even test and verify that signal.
• Can be configured as a level changer, signal converter, line repeater, splitter, or tester.
• Splits one input signal into two or three outputs.
• Has LED indicators for encoder power and signal presence.
• Accommodates a variety of digital signal types (RS422, NPN, PNP, TTL, etc.) and voltages (5VDC or 5-24VDC) as both input and output options,...
Safety comes first with the new Pizzato NS Series!
Pizzato Elettrica presents the new NS series safety switches with solenoid and RFID technology
The new NS series combines all the knowledge and innovations developed by Pizzato Elettrica for more than thirty years of experience in industrial safety. It is today's spearhead of this field. The NS series switches have a technopolymer body and are suitable for medium/light applications.
The main features of the new NS series:
• Contactless activation by means of the RFID technology.
• Maximum safety with one device only: the NS series switches make it possible to obtain circuits with the highest safety level PLe and SIL3, installing only one device on the protection.
• Large centering hole: the switch is equipped with a large hole for centering the actuator's pin. This solution makes it easier to align the actuator and the hole on the head of the switch during the assembly phase. Ideal...
Siemens is extending its range of HMI devices with Simatic HMI Comfort Panels PRO (PROtected). The new panels with 12-, 15-, 19-, and 22-inch screen diagonals for visualization and automation without control cabinets are equipped with the high protection type IP65 (NEMA4),
Teledyne DALSA Announces Production of Industry’s First Line Scan Polarization Camera:
Teledyne DALSA announced production of the new Polarization camera to its industry-leading Piranha™ family. First announced in Q2 2017, the Piranha4 Polarization camera is now in full production with improved performance. Polarization imaging significantly enhances detection capability in many demanding applications and represents a powerful new addition to system designers’ machine vision toolboxes.
The Piranha4-2k Polarization camera uses Teledyne DALSA’s advanced quadlinear CMOS image sensor with nanowire micro-polarizer filters. It captures multiple native polarization state data without any interpolation. With a maximum line rate of 70 kHz, the camera outputs independent images of 0°(s), 90° (p), and 135° polarization states as well as an unfiltered channel.
