Novotechnik - Compact Touchless Position Sensors

Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the TFD Series of touchless linear position sensors provide wear-free operation in tight spaces.

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.

The TFD-4000 Series utilizes a magnetic position marker to provide a stroke length of 0 to 14, 24 or 50 mm—depending on model. These sensors make touchless measurements through air and non-magnetic materials. Magnetic position marker mounts to users application.
Other key TFD-4000 Series specifications include ingress protection from liquids and dust to IP 69, 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.

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
