Southborough, MA… Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the TFD Series of touchless linear position sensors provide wear-free operation in tight spaces. Maximum sensor dimensions are 40 x 27 x 7 mm thin.

The TFD-4000 Series utilizes a magnetic position marker to provide a touchless measurement range of 0 to 14, 24 or 50 mm—depending on model. These sensors makes measurements through air and non-magnetic materials. Magnetic position marker mounts to users application.
Key TFD-4000 Series specifications include ingress protection from liquids and dust to IP 67, resolution of 12 bits, repeatability of ≤0.1% of full scale and optional second channel for applications requiring redundancy.
TFD-4000 Series sensors have analog voltage output. They have an operating temperature range of -40°C to +125°C.

Applications include textile machinery, packaging machinery, sheet metal machinery, medical applications, marine, mobile engine management systems, industrial trucks, construction machinery, agricultural and forestry machinery.

MICROSCAN: READ AND VERIFY BARCODES INVISIBLE TO THE NAKED EYE

Space, or the lack of it, can be a challenge when placing barcodes or Data Matrix symbols on components. However, readable barcodes are critical to component traceability, time/date stamping, work in progress (WIP) tracking, and recall management. MicroHAWK UHD smart cameras can decode very small and difficult-to-read barcodes, including Data Matrix two-dimensional (2D) symbols and direct part marks (DPM). Users can rely on the MicroHAWK UHD to read symbols with an x-dimension almost invisible to the naked eye!
