New variants with ground choke

New variants with ground choke

SCHURTER extends its successful power entry module series C20F with versions including a ground line choke, designed for suppressing high-frequency interference on the ground conductor. Additionally, the new variants have a bigger X-capacitor for better symmetrical attenuation.

The C20F filter series combines an IEC C20 appliance inlet with a high-quality mains filter. The particularly wide metal flange makes contact with the housing surface over a large area, thus enabling optimum filtering and shielding.

Ground choke

New variants of the C20F...

IDS NXT Ocean – Grab, Label, Train, Run AI

IDS NXT Ocean – Grab, Label, Train, Run AI

Artificial intelligence opens up new fields of application for camera technology and image processing. It can be used, for example, to classify fruit varieties or to identify damaged parts (e.g. apples with marks or colour deviations). 

To cover all possible variances with classical image processing would be very time-consuming and costly. With artificial intelligence, however, these challenges can be solved in no time at all. With IDS NXT ocean, there is now a user-friendly complete solution for industrial applications.
