A new performance class in inductive displacement measurements

A new performance class in inductive displacement measurements

The eddyNCDT 3060 inductive measurement system is based on eddy currents and enables fast, precise displacement measurements in industrial environments. More than 400 sensor models can be combined with the eddyNCDT 3060. Based on ease of use and smart signal processing, this non-contact system defines a new performance class in inductive displacement measurement.

In contrast to conventional inductive sensors, displacement sensors based on eddy currents stand out due to their high accuracy, bandwidth and temperature stability. Furthermore, this measuring principle enables measurements...

Motion Controller from FAULHABER with STO shutdown

Motion Controller from FAULHABER with STO shutdown

FAULHABER has brought to market a new series of Motion Controllers with redundant safety shutdown according to the STO principle (Safe Torque Off). The power supply to the motor is thereby immediately interrupted, preventing it from producing torque. The devices of the MC 5004 P STO series are thereby certified for operation up to safety integrity level SIL3 (IEC 61800-5-2) and up to performance level PL e (EN ISO 13849-1). 

"The new Motion Controllers ensure safety in the collaboration between human and machine, even in an Industry 4.0 environment," emphasises product manager...
