ASI announces S7 SeriesFiber Optic Sensors

Automation Systems Interconnect (ASI) releases S7 series fiber optic sensors for applications requiring high accuracy sensing combined with very compact dimensions.

Automation Systems Interconnect (ASI) releases S7 series fiber optic sensors for applications requiring high accuracy sensing combined with very compact dimensions.


For high operating distances, the S7 series has 10 bit resolution models with 500 µs response. For High speed, the series has 12 bit resolution models with 50 µs response and 4 digit display. The S7 series also offers cost-effective models with a multiturn mechanical trimmer adjustment. Installing and setting this sensor is made to be fast and easy, due to the ultra-thin housing with CLEARLOCK and the EASYtouch adjustment system. The S7 has a mechanical protection of IP50 and IP65.

Data sheets, technical specifications and all pricing and availability can be found on the ASI website.

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface

With the new e-Series cobot line, Universal Robots raises the bar for cobots, adding unique new features while significantly strengthening the four core principles defining collaborative robots: fast set-up, easy programming, flexible deployment, and safe operation. With a new built-in, tool-centric Force/Torque sensor the e-Series is ready to take on applications requiring force control right out of the box. A repeatability of 30 micron means the new cobots are suitable for very precise finishing, assembly and electronics tasks. A re-designed user interface decreases cognitive load and expedites program development, while a new externally accessible, 500Hz system bus enables more complex motion control algorithms or profiles.
