Sensoroid and smart chair enables health to be visualised

Sensoroid and smart chair enables health to be visualised
THK CO at Hannover Messe this week has announced and exhibited product prototypes. At the exhibition, THK displayed a humanoid sensoroid that is able to grasp various conditions of the surrounding environment. Sensors can be embedded all over the robot, thus enabling the environment in which a person is situated to be visualised on the basis of a diversity of factors. A ‘smart’ sensing chair that measures a person´s respiration, heart rate, stress levels, and more will also be on display.

Magnetostrictive linear position sensor for explosion hazard areas

Magnetostrictive linear position sensor for explosion hazard areas
  Used for oil and gas transmission in refineries and petrochemical plants, control and shut-off valves are crucial. The valve position is regulated using the position measuring systems, because they are extremely reliable, especially in very harsh environments.

Non-contact rotary encoder allows easy mounting on flat surfaces

Non-contact rotary encoder allows easy mounting on flat surfaces
The PE18 ProxEncoder non-contact rotary encoder product line from Joral receives a square housing with side sense capacity. Enhancing the original PE18 proximity style form factor, the new rectangular design allows for easy mounting on flat surfaces. Two USPTO patents enable the PE18-BX ProxEncoder to detect on-axis rotation with up to 0.5” (12mm) air gap between the application and sensor.

Non-contact sensor boasts 125ms response time

Non-contact sensor boasts 125ms response time
A low-cost, high-performance infrared temperature sensor from RS Components (RS) is a non-contact thermometer that is designed to measure temperature from a distance. The RS Pro sensor measures just 31mm diameter by 30mm high – and side-entry cable, makes it ideal for mounting in areas were space is limited.

Miniature sensor designed for precise detection in small spaces

Miniature sensor designed for precise detection in small spaces
Banner Engineering has announced the release of VS8 Series miniature sensors for precise detection in applications with extremely limited space. Sensors in the VS8 Series have a space-saving form factor (21.1x14.6x8mm) for use in confined spaces and near moving parts. They are available in red laser, red LED, or blue LED models with opposed, retroreflective, adjustable, or fixed-field background suppression sensing modes. This versatility allows companies to match the sensing technology to the application.

Sensors determine correct positioning for Industry 4.0

Sensors determine correct positioning for Industry 4.0
Detecting objects in systems is such an important part of the automation industry. Objects have to be reliably detected and measured, as well as verifying that they are correctly positioned. The scope of possible applications is almost limitless and is continuously expanding (for example, detecting valve and flap positions, the position of PV panels for optimal exposure to light, the position of a ship's rudder, and automation tasks in the machine-tool industry.)
