Pepperl+Fuchs DK50-UV Luminescence Sensors

Pepperl+Fuchs introduces DK50-UV Luminescence Sensors. The DK50-UV series provide a simple and reliable means of error checking, sorting, measuring, and positioning materials that blend into a background or are invisible. They detect marks such as inks, pigments, dyes, coatings, and adhesives, even on irregular backgrounds, and deliver an industry leading (luminescence sensor) sensing range of 600 mm in a housing that is 50% smaller than previous generation luminescence sensors. A small focal point of light spot means that even small parts such o-rings, pin-point leaks and invisible markings, can be detected down to 2.2 mm diameter targets. These sensors are …

Edwards Signaling Chameleon 103 Series Multi-Status Indicators

The Chameleon 103I Series features an onboard processor with an internal jumper that allows the unit to function as either a steady or flashing visual signal. The Chameleon is designed such that any one or all three lights can be activated by either a PLC or contact closure. The first light activated will illuminate either steady or flashing (set by an internal jumper). If a second light is activated, the Chameleon cycles between the two colors. A third activation causes the Chameleon to cycle between all three colors: red, amber, and green or red, amber, and blue. The Chameleon 103 …
