Minneapolis, MN–February 4, 2005–TURCK is looking at analog sensing in a variety of innovative and unique ways. TURCK is applying traditional analog sensing in two non-traditional housings styles, with the addition of the Bi20R-Q14-LU ring style and the Wi70-M18-LIU5 probe style sensors. These analog sensors are specified with a repeatability of less than 0.5 percent and linearity of 3 percent. The Bi20R-Q14-LU is a 3-wire, 15-30 VDC sensor with a 0-10 V output in a ring style housing with a 20 millimeter diameter hole. This sensor is ideal for the identification and sorting of small parts (such as screws), as the sensor generates a different output signal for each size part. Position control applications are easily resolved with the Bi20R-Q14-LU by means of a cone shaped target, as well as the detection or measurement of tools (such as drill bits). The Wi70-M18-LIU5 is a 4-wire, 15-30 VDC analog sensor with either a 0-10 V or 4-20 mA output. Housed in a standard 18 millimeter barrel, the 75 millimeter probe has a linear operating distance of 70 millimeters. This probe style sensor can detect all metals and can be used in a variety of areas, such as the positioning of metal parts as they move over the length of the probe. TURCK is a leading supplier of advanced control solutions to help manufacturers improve their automated processes, products and profits.
