When reviewing or approaching an application, we all know that the correct sensor technology plays a key role in reliable detection of production parts or even machine positioning. In many cases, application engineers choose photoelectric sensors as their go-to solution, as … Continue reading
As discussed in a previous blog post, miniature sensors are an ongoing trend in the market as manufacturing and equipment requirements continue to demand smaller sensor size due to either space limitations and/or weight considerations. However, size and weight aren’t … Continue reading
If someone says proximity sensor, what is the first thing that comes to mind? My guess is inductive and justly so because they are the most used sensor in automation today. There are other sensing technologies that use the term … Continue reading
Ultrasonic sensors can detect objects that many traditional sensing technologies cannot because of their ability to see targets regardless of color, transparency and surface texture. Even in dusty, humid, or hazy environments, they may be the only sensor that is … Continue reading
