In this article we will discuss safety edges. These safety components are used for machine safety, generally in access technology such as industrial gates. Read all about our HSC® safety edges here and find out what makes these unique compared to other manufacturers on the market.
Pyrometers or infrared temperature sensors are sensors for easy, safe, fast and non-contact temperature measurement of objects and surfaces in industrial processes. Especially in applications where the surface moves or is difficult to access. However, in order to measure temperature accurately, it is necessary to know the emissivity of the surface that has to be measured. But what is emissivity? This article explains what emissivity is and how to take emissivity into account in your temperature measuring application.
We are going to talk about the differences and the applicability of photoelectric retro-reflective sensors with a polarized and a normal reflector. Finally, we give an idea of what is the best choice for your application
In this article we discuss the differences between the ultrasonic- and laser-based measuring principles, the challenging applications that emphasise those and an overview of possible solutions.
Curious about how you can save time and money with the help of a laser projector? Then read on. In this article you can read how a laser projector works, what you can use it for and what the advantages are.
Door security for companies is crucial to protect employees from dangerous situations. Working safely with machines every day and returning home unharmed at the end of the day, that's what we want. This is possible with the Haake HST® Trapped Key Interlock systems, with which performance Level d or PLd is easy to realize. To get a better picture in which practical situation a certain configuration of the Haake HST® Trapped Key Interlock system is applied, we give a few examples here. Because every application is unique, our advisors are happy to help determine the key operation plan.
In this article we look at perhaps the most popular industrial term recently: Industry 4.0. Firstly, we discuss: "What is industry 4.0?". Then an overview is given of the opportunities and threats that this development brings with it.
In this article the bending of the sound cone of an ultrasonic sensors by means of a bending reflector. This allows an alternative mounting of the ultrasonic sensor.
IO-Link is the first standardized I/O technology for the communication of sensors and actuators. In ”What is IO-Link?” more can be read about it. IO-Link has many different advantages that spare costs and optimize processes. These are the advantages of IO-Link:
This article discusses what safety light lists, also known as safety light curtains or safety light curtains, are and how they are used to maintain and promote machine safety.
Everything you need to know about cables and the applications you can use them in! From cable properties to help you choose the right sensor for your industrial application!
Web guiding, also known as web sensing or edge guiding is the positioning of the rollers in a web guiding system. The linear positioning of a material with the use of web guiding. We cover a number of application examples and which solutions we offer.
In this article we will discuss the differences between the inductive and capacitive proximity switches, and explain how they work with a number of applications as an example.
The various types of photoelectric sensors and how they work. Looking for a diffuse proximity, thru-beam (transmitter and receiver) photoelectric sensor or a photoelectric sensor with background suppression? Read more about it here.
Stickers, labels of sealnaden kun je betrouwbaar detecteren met een esf- sensor. Hiervoor geldt nog wel dat je deze juist moet instellen voor je toepassing. Leer hier hoe!
The operation of laser distance sensors in AGVs (automated guided vehicles) and their applications. We also present which sensor solutions we offer.
The explanation of the different measuring principles with which (LiDAR) and a number of applications lasers work. It concerns the optical measuring principles: phase comparison, pulse back-mixing method and TOF (time-of-flight).
How does a color sensor work? In this article we will discuss the operation as well as the various industrial applications for color sensors. Also known as spectrometers.
De werking van een ultrasoon sensor. Ultrasoon sensoren werken door het uitsturen en ontvangen van geluid. Hoe werkt dit? Wat is de werking van een ultrasoon sensor? Wat is ultrasoon geluid? Dat wordt in dit artikel uitgelegd.
Hoe werkt het detectiebereik van ultrasoon sensoren? Ultrasoon sensoren zijn in staat om contactloos binnen een bepaald gebied een betrouwbare detectie of meting uit te voeren op basis van ultrasone geluidsgolven. De sensoren hebben verschillende meetbereiken en deze hangen af van verschillende omgevingsfactoren. Lees er hier meer over.
