Pepperl+Fuchs FieldConnex Multi-Input/Output Device

The multi-input/output (IMO) from Pepperl+Fuchs is a multifunctional device for DIN rail installation and connects discrete inputs and outputs to fieldbus. It is typically installed in a field enclosure close to the sensors in the hazardous area, thereby minimizing wiring. The MIO is certified intrinsically safe and as associated apparatus: inputs and outputs are intrinsically safe even when the fieldbus connection is not.The MIO device provides connections for up to 12 discrete inputs and 4 discrete outputs. The device is compatible to components FD0-VC-Ex* and FD0-BI-* and offers control and position feedback for 4 low-power valves. Measurements for breakaway time …

Banner Engineering LTF Long-Range Time-of-Flight Laser Sensors

L-GAGE® LTF Series Laser Sensors from Banner Engineering are now available in extended range models capable of reliably detecting and inspecting objects from up to 24m away without the use of a retroreflector. The sensors achieve accuracy error of less than 1% of range and less than 25mm of accuracy error when using a white target. They offer greater range capabilities than similarly priced time-of-flight sensors and are an affordable alternative to sensors with similar range capabilities.FEATURES The extended 24m range allows LTF Series sensors to be used to solve many applications that previously were primarily solved by more expensive …
