STI Introduces New PartScan Selection & Verification System that Eliminates Assembly Errors
FREMONT, CA – The new PartScan PS7600 Part Selection and Verification Scanner from Scientific Technologies, Inc. (STI) is specifically designed for monitoring bins in sequential assembly applications. Prominent indicator LEDs with multiple display modes help eliminate part selection errors. The low-profile design provides an integrated appearance, and a wide choice of brackets and protective shrouds meet specific application requirements. The PS7600 is easy to install and use, and features a monitoring range of up to 3 m. Two frequencies help to eliminate crosstalk.

Users simply program a PLC to light the appropriate scanner indicators on the bin with the correct part for the next step in the assembly operation. When the scanner is blocked by a hand entering the bin, the scanner energizes its output to indicate that a part has been removed. The PLC verifies that this is the proper bin and moves on to the next bin for part selection. If a part was picked from the incorrect bin, the PLC can energize an alarm or indicator to signal the error.

With headquarters in the heart of Silicon Valley, STI was founded over 30 years ago and employs more than 330 people. STI has been selected twice by Forbes and three times by Business Week as one of the “world’s best small companies.” STI’s safety products are used to protect workers around machinery, automated equipment and industrial robots.
