B.R.A.I.N.S. – Power/mation'snew monthly blog with original content created by our in-house experts. This month: Business Development Manager David Ellers shares options for long range WiFi applications utilizing Phoenix Contact.
New this month–the Turck Inductive Safety Sensor with two OSSD (output switching signal device) outputs. The sensors send switching signals to safety systems via their OSSD outputs. This is used to easily detect short circuits, overloads or cross-connections while simultaneously testing the shutdown capabilities. With SIL 2 and Performance Level D ratings, these sensors meet stringent functional safety requirements. The wide temperature range of -25°C to 70°C and IP67 rating make these ideal for use in safety-related applications such as compactors, machine covers, and monitoring of doors in safety zones.
The Festo Ball Screw and Toothed Belt Linear Actuator (ELGC) and the Mini Slide (EGSC) is an easily design and assemble 2-axis and 3-axis handling system with space-saving and low-profile mounting kits.
