Novotechnik - Compact Hydraulic/Pneumatic Position Sensors

TM1 Series stroke lengths are from 50 to 2,000 mm in 25 mm steps. Operating pressure is up to 5,076 psi (350 bar) with peaks to 6,526 psi (450 bar). Both plug-in and screw type flange models are available.

Southborough, MA - Novotechnik U.S. introduces the TM1 Series of magnetostrictive linear hydraulic and pneumatic position sensors with compact housing. A magnetic ring-shaped marker is affixed to your application's moving cylinder and moves up and down the TM1 rod without contact.

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.
