Mencom introduce the new MIXO ONE series enclosures for single-sized MIXO modules

MIXO ONE series is an aluminum housings system designed to accept a wide range of single-sized MIXO series modules.

MIXO ONE series is an aluminum housings system designed to accept a wide range of single-sized MIXO series modules. These robust rectangular connector enclosures are available in 3 hood variants and 1 bulkhead mounting base. The numerous combinations of the MIXO ONE housings and single-sized MIXO inserts will easily allow each module to be converted into a fully independent connector for electrical power, data transmission, optical signals, or compressed air applications.


Features and specifications:
- MIXO ONE series is designed to install the single-sized modules in one guided way only so that an incorrect match with the mating connector can be avoided
- The housings Incorporate a pre-leading (first-make, last-break) PE connection terminal and contact for the safest connector operation. The pins protruding from the bulkhead mounting housing play as a key guide in cooperation with the corresponding keyway sockets in the hoods to avoid incorrect 180° reversed mating with a matching connector
- Four optional coding pins are available which can generate up to 16 different coding combinations as a provision against mismatching when identical connectors are installed side by side
- Hoods are split into two parts (front, rear) to mount a single-sized MIXO module and simplify the enclosure's PE connection
- Four self-threading screws and self-retaining sealing gasket are supplied for the hoods
- Bulkhead mounting base featuring rigid stainless-steel locking lever is supplied with the module locking frame and self-retaining flange gasket
- Shock-proof and self-extinguishing thermoplastic (UL94V-2) protection covers are available for hoods and base suitable for outdoor environments.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
