Turck Capacitive Sensors with Teachable Capabilities

Turck is expanding its portfolio of capacitive sensors, now offering 18mm and 30mm capacitive barrel sensors with teachable capabilities. The new offering comes in two variants – teach by wire or teach by button.The teach by button variant can be taught by a single press of a button, saving valuable installation and configuration time. Both present and absent media can be taught for a higher sensitivity teach. The variant without a push button can be taught either by a teach adapter or teach by wire (pin 5), which allows for a tamper-resistant installation. Each variant is available in either PNP …

Phoenix Contact MINI Analog to Frequency Transducer

Phoenix Contact introduces a new configurable, freely adjustable, analog-to-frequency transducer with additional switching output and limit-value functionality. This latest addition to the MINI Pro Analog family can convert standard analog signals to frequency signals or to pulse-width-modulated signals (PWM signals). Current signals between 0-24mA and voltage signals between 0-12V can be processed on the input side. Frequency signals between 0-11kHz and PWM signals between 0-100% are possible on the output side.In addition, the output can also be operated as a switching output, which means that two switching thresholds can be set independently of one another. The minimum measuring span is …
