WHITE PAPERSin Sensors & Industrial I/O
By Jeff Wuendry, SICK
This white paper explains the available types of backup sensing solutions on manned forklifts, their respective advantages and disadvantages, the most common applications, and key considerations when selecting a system.
By Macro Sensors
While DC-LVDTs eliminate the need for calibration and additional equipment, AC-LVDTs continue to possess their own set of benefits.
The evolution of absolute encoders has been driven by changing application demands and new communication platforms. Today, advancements in highly precise positioning capabilities and communication network technology saves costs, simplifies systems, And increases flexibility for OEMs.
CASE STUDIESin Sensors & Industrial I/O
The monitoring project, which ran for five months, was aimed at investigating unexplained causes of moisture damage, wood decay and fungal growth found behind cladding and sheathing in ground-floor walls throughout the unnamed complex.
Maintenance On Line
By Akilu Yunusa-Kaltungo and Jyoti K Sinha, University of Manchester
This case study at AshakaCem demonstrates the use of simple analysis of vibration spectra to detect an ID fan unbalance. Visual inspection and cleaning of the fan impeller was then conducted, which immediately enhanced fan operation, and cement production rate, by approximately 11%.
Two laser line displacement sensors from Micro-Epsilon are mounted to a purpose-built handling and processing machine manufactured by Behr Systems.
