Ensenso 3D Camera with Onboard Data Processing

Ensenso 3D Camera with Onboard Data Processing

Ensenso XR is the first model of the 3D camera series offered by IDS to feature on-board processing. This means that it calculates the 3D point clouds itself and sends them via Gigabit Ethernet or Wifi to a host PC for further 3D data analysis.
Ensenso XR is ideally suited for multi-camera systems, as it reduces the load on bandwidth and connected PCs, for example. Depending on the parameterization, the 1 GigE models of the new camera family are about twice as fast as those of the Ensenso X series. Bin picking applications that are designed for the fastest possible clock rate, for example,...

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...
