RFID technology with IO-Link connectivity eliminates hose-coupling errors in fluidized pneumatic-transport systems

Bulk-handling- and pneumatic-transport-system designers use RFID technology to eliminate connection errors at manual hose-coupling stations for fluidizable materials. Coupling stations, with IO-Link-enabled read/write modules (RWMs) mounted on each outlet pipe, use manual quick-release hoses to feed materials to multiple machines. RFID tags, mounted integrally within each hose coupling and blanking cap, identify the mating parts…

Safety Access Control

Large industrial machines benefit from this technology, in which light curtains surround the working area with an infrared barrier. Compared with a physical barrier, much more useful space is left free and there is no reduction in visibility around the machine. Typical applications are metal cutting machines, printing systems, packaging and assembly lines. The YCA…

C23 with UV LED

Transparent-object sensors with patented UV technology ensure reliable detection and accurate counting of clear plastic trays During automated packaging of fast-moving products in controlled conditions, thermoforming lines produce transparent plastic tray bases from continuous reel-stock material. A small transparent-object sensor with patented UV technology detects the presence of each set of transparent trays after it…

Distance sensors

As contactless measurement devices, photoelectric Distance sensors are suitable for numerous areas of application. Different operating principles are available, depending on the distance to be measured. DTR-C23 and DTL-C23 sensors use a triangulation method for highly accurate distance measurement at short range. For longer ranges, the optical time-of-flight (TOF) method is used by DTL-C55 sensors.…

RFID Washdown

The Washdown family of full-metal, low-frequency components has been designed for demanding wash-in-place applications within the food, pharmaceutical and other industries. Passive tags from this family offer the highest mechanical and chemical resistance, being fully sealed, laser welded and made of food-grade stainless steel (V4A / AISI 316L). As a result, they are highly corrosion-proof,…
