CONTRAST SENSORS ARE MORE RELIABLE, ACCURATE AND VERSATILE


even on high gloss packaging. With a range of ‘core’ and ‘prime’


SICK has launched its KTS/KTX family of contrast sensors, delivering a ‘next- generation technology’ that is claimed to break new ground in reliability, accuracy and versatility for print, labelling, converting and packaging applications. With compact, lightweight housings in rugged ABS, the sensors feature IO-Link data communication and an intuitive on- board display for easy set up and improved diagnostics. The sensors incorporate SICK’s Twin-Eye Technology for improved contrast detection with better depth of field and a wider sensing distance tolerance. The greater grey-scale sensitivity means even better sensing of monochrome or colour registration marks,


options in the product range, customers can choose different levels of functionality to suit their needs. With up to 70kHz switching frequency and down to 3µsec jitter rate the KTS and KTX are easily capable of coping with up to 250 packs per minute and compensating for high-speed flutter on reel-to-reel material edges. Common applications such as the detection of print marks or the control of industrial labelling processes can benefit from the improved process stability and optimum machine downtime of the new technology. The expanded range of sensor options presents additional choices for application areas such as the detection of wafers, the management of reel changes and for quality control. The sensors’ intuitive onboard display


enables operators to input and query parameters and ‘teach-in’ sensor and process adjustments quickly and easily.

The new XC300 modular PLC from Eaton, enables machine and system builders to bring streamlined, modern automation concepts to life – especially when combined with the XN300 I/O system and XV300 touch panel. With high performance and excellent communication features, the modular controller’s fast cycle


times enables higher productivity rates for the machine. Thanks to its various interfaces, the controller is suitable as a universal and flexible data node for a wide range of applications. An integrated OPC server enables standardised data transfer in M2M communication, facilitating seamless integration into the automation architecture and creating a simple path towards Industry 4.0.


The Linux-based system is programmed using CODESYS 3 and supports many commonly-used interfaces and field bus protocols, from CANopen, easyNet and


SMART GLASSES OFFER COST SAVINGS The Recon Jet


Mouser Electronics is now stocking Intel Recon Jet Pro smart glasses, a hands-free wearable device that drives and enables significant operational efficiency gains and cost savings by streamlining workflows and empowering workers. Recon Jet Pro can transform workflows in industries such as field service, manufacturing, and logistics. Intel Recon Jet Pro is more than a simple heads-


up display (HUD) module. Ergonomically designed specifically for optimal comfort and wearability, the eyewear distributes its weight evenly across the frame and features an adjustable wraparound nosepiece, fully adjustable ear stems, and dual-axis angle adjustment for the display module.

Pro’s point-of- view camera enables see-what-I-see video calls that scan barcodes and document high-stakes procedures, allowing domain experts to remotely guide workers through procedures. A field-swappable battery with a runtime of two to five hours allows the wearer to swap in spare batteries and resume workflows in less than a minute. The Recon Jet Pro is both ANSI Z87.1+ and IEC IP65 compliant for impact, water, and dust resistance.

Modbus RTU through EtherCAT, Modbus TCP, Ethernet/IP all the way to OPC UA/Scada. In modular machines, networked plant and production concepts, the XC300 demonstrates its advantages through its high flexibility. The controller allows the operation of three different Ethernet networks based on different addresses. Integrated web servers support CODESYS 3 visualisation and device administration, with HTML5 capability for display on smartphones and tablet devices.

PROFINET OPTION FOR LINEAR MOTORS


The ST Series linear motor from


Dunkermotoren is now available with Profinet


drive, DME 230x4 and so further extends the range which already offers CANopen and EtherCAT drive options. In combination with this new Profinet drive option, the ST linear motors can now be easily integrated into Siemens controller environments. The linear system with DME 230x4


provides highly dynamic motion and good controllability for quick and precise positioning. Typical applications for the ST Series ServoTube will include industrial machinery, laboratory equipment and test systems. The absence of meshing mechanical parts, such as gears or ball / lead screws in the ST Series offers the dual benefits of extremely quiet operation and no maintenance. Applications with lifetimes requiring more than 60,000km of linear travel are not uncommon for the ST Series motor and are claimed to be superior (up to 10x) compared to pneumatic cylinders.
