In­duc­tive cou­pling sys­tems are the ideal choice wher­ever fixed wiring of sen­sors and ac­tu­a­tors gets in the way or is sub­ject to pre­ma­ture wear due to fa­tigue. With their new BIC Q40 in­duc­tive cou­plers, Bal­luff now of­fers a so­lu­tion for ap­pli­ca­tions where the max­i­mum trans­mit­table power plays a cen­tral role.

Spectrophotometry, which examines the light spectrum emitted or absorbed by materials and analyzes their composition, is used in a wide variety of fields including food, agriculture and medicine. Up until now, spectrophotometry was typically performed in a chemical laboratory using large benchtop spectrometers. This SMD series spectrometer is expected to be used in hand-held instruments with limitations to their size or weight, simultaneous multipoint measurements, and other applications.

At the Hannover Messe (Hall 9, Booth H55) Turck is presenting the PS+ series pressure sensors as the first of a new fluid sensor series. They combine functionality together with award-winning design. The keypad features capacitive touch pads that enable unimaginably simple operation. The absence of mechanical operating elements increases robustness and helps to meet the requirements of ISO protection types IP6K6K, IP6K7 and IP6K9K. Flexible installation (overhead and rotatable around 340°) and...

The new BML SL1 ab­solute mea­sur­ing sys­tem from Bal­luff is the right choice wher­ever po­si­tions and end-of-travel need to be de­ter­mined with high ac­cu­racy, fast and pre­cisely over travel dis­tances of up to 8 me­ters. Re­gard­less of whether the task in­volves lin­ear or ro­tary mo­tion, dis­tance or angle mea­sure­ment, for­mat changes, short or long dis­tances.

RFID sys­tems with var­i­ous fre­quency ranges are find­ing in­creas­ing use in mod­ern pro­duc­tion and as­sem­bly plants. Each sys­tem is de­signed for dif­fer­ent ap­pli­ca­tions. Low-fre­quency (LF) sys­tems are suited mainly for ap­pli­ca­tions in metal­lic sur­round­ings. High-fre­quency (HF) sys­tems are the ideal choice where a greater read/write dis­tance and high speed are para­mount. Since each sys­tem until now re­quired its own RFID con­troller type, this was not only cum­ber­some...
