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.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air – Flexible and Intelligent

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
