Two models are available: the window version is suitable for sensor or board cameras with S mount lenses and maximum dimensions of 70 x 150 x 40 mm (W x L x H). Alternatively, users can choose an angular enclosure with a lens tube for sensor and board cameras with C mount lenses and measurements of up to 70 x 150 x 70 mm. Featuring a modular design, the enclosures can optionally also be made in special sizes. Inside the enclosure, the cameras are installed on a mounting plate which can be manufactured to fit the mounting threads of various camera models. A large M25 cable gland allows users to feed through several cables featuring connectors with a maximum diameter of 21 mm. A detachable lid with captive screws ensures easy access and makes it easy to adjust the camera. On request, autoVimation manufactures Chameleon enclosures with customer-specific colors or prints.

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.
