MC Flexible Inductive Sensors with Rotatable Head from Carlo Gavazzi 1 400x275

Carlo Gavazzi is excited to introduce the new IRC40 Series Inductive Proximity Sensors. Specifically designed as a durable solution for daily indoor and outdoor applications, it ensures accurate detection of actuating parts, such as skid conveyor positioning, step detection on escalators, and material positioning on conveyor systems.

The IRC40 sensors are resistant to extreme operating conditions such as exposure to a wide range of temperatures and frequent high pressure washdown cycles. They offer flexible adjustment and adaptability for any application due to the 5-position sensing face. The sensors can be installed quickly without any tools, thanks to the push-lock system of the mounting bracket.

The features of the IRC40 Series include:

  • •Rotatable sensing face in 5 different positions without the need of additional tools
  • •Bracket with push-lock system for easy and quick mounting or replacement
  • •4 corner visible LEDs with diagnostic functions
  • •Extended sensing distance 22 to 40mm
  • •Operating temp.: -25°C to +80°C
  • •IP68 and IP69K protection against high pressure and high temperature washing cycles
  • •40 x 40 x 66mm plastic housing with M12-plug
  • •Flush or non-flush mounting with anti-valent output

 

The IRC40 Series Inductive Proximity Sensors are ideal for conveyor systems, production lines and escalators where you need a reliable and flexible solution. They are available from Carlo Gavazzi's network of sales offices and distributors in the Americas, or at www.GavazziOnline.com

MC What to Consider When Choosing a New Motion Control Solution 1 400x275

When it’s time to consider a new motion control solution for your application, rule #1 is “Solve the problem, then worry about the design.”

This is easier said than done, but not if you apply a disciplined, time-tested framework. First, you must clearly understand the problem and the local environment. Failure to do so often results in a suboptimal motion control solution or complete failure.

Secondly, the designer should evaluate the application in light of proven existing motion control solutions. The engineer must also take stock of their skills and the expertise of the team in order to effectively choose the right options and to accurately anticipate development time and resources.

Before choosing any motion control products, the design engineer needs a set of principles to guide his or her selection. Long term experience and common sense has taught us seven important, but often overlooked, principles. 

These key learning have been encapsulated in a simple notion known as the SHAIRED paradigm:

  • •Simplicity of design to reduce problem-causing complexity and cost
  • Homework; calculate the required torque, inertia, duty cycle, etc.
  • Analysis of the application and alternatives must be thorough
  • Integration of the system into existing factory automation
  • Redundancy built in to a system to exceed performance expectations and deal with unexpected changed in load and operating parameters
  • Economical solution for the short and long term.
  • Development time must be accurately estimated

Using the above guidelines during motion control system design, evaluation of alternatives, and final product selection will help increase the odds of application success.
