Torque Measurement with Angle Sensors

As collaborative robots expand into manufacturing environments the issue of safe motion continues to be a concern. Current design approaches involve adding force sensors, torque sensors, and sometimes proximity sensors. These adders along with more complex software control algorithms mitigate most of the concerns and result in slower operation. Unfortunately, these additional sensors also add significant cost and complexity.

Application Note: Ethernet Protocols for Industrial Automation Sensors

Industrial Ethernet protocols are playing a growing role in automation, as they offer a number of advantages over traditional fieldbus protocols such as CANopen and PROFIBUS. Industrial Ethernet protocols are based on standard Ethernet technology, which provides a number of benefits, including:

Osico Oil-Mon Oil Quality Sensor

Particle Contamination, Water Contamination and Oxidation.  Any one of these nuisances can spell disaster for lube oil.  Of course, you run a lab oil analysis program so you know periodically what these levels are in a machine.  But what if you could monitor these parameters in real time? Osico Oil-Mon is a 4-in-1 oil quality […]
