Sensor network for the smart factory

Sensor network for the smart factory
Smart automation and digital transformation are among the trend topics worldwide. Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things are changing production and logistics processes in the long term. In the future, objects will be networked and interact automatically in all areas. In order to guarantee smooth processes, detailed position and status data must be generated and analysed. KINEXON, located in Munich, Germany, has developed KINEXON Brain, an intelligent solution based on an IoT gateway from Kontron's KBox family.

Sensors ensure long term performance in remote locations

Sensors ensure long term performance in remote locations
The infinite mechanical life and long term reliability offered by NewTek LVDT Linear Position Sensors make them suitable for use in remote, hard-to-reach and difficult locations where sensor replacement would result in high costs and down-time. For example, shutting down a turbine to replace a sensor near steam turbines and valves where temperatures reach 400° results would be a huge undertaking both in costs and labour.

Touch sensor is a drop-in mechanical switch replacement

Touch sensor is a drop-in mechanical switch replacement
A new touch operated sensor launched by Omron Electronic Components Europe is a drop-in replacement for a mechanical switch, but delivers all of the reliability and flexibility of touch. Capacitive touch sensors deliver a great many benefits in terms of longevity and user-friendliness, but usually require careful work at the design stage and proper set up to ensure that they work reliably in the application.
