Easy parameterization with smartphone app and SMI

The Sensor Master Interface (SMI) is used to set parameters of electronic pressure switches such as switching points, output function and switching delay time as well as to adjust the measuring range of submersible pressure transmitters. By reading the device data, the connected pressure measurement device can be precisely identified and the parameters can be checked. The parameterization of Trafags electronic pressure switches NAT 8252, NAH 8254 as well as NAR 8258 can now be carried out easily and directly on site with the Sensor Master Interface and the corresponding smartphone app. Until now, electronic pressure switches with different device configurations had to be kept in stock. In addition, optimization during system development…

Long-range photoelectric sensor counts shrink-wrapped carton packs

During high-volume confectionery packaging operations, conveyors deliver stacked cartons to shrink-wrapping stations. At each station, a wrapping machine encloses a stack in heat-shrink film and an infrared oven shrinks the film to form a sealed pack of carton. A long-distance through-beam photoelectric sensor, mounted beside the conveyor, senses the presence of each pack as it leaves the oven and signals a plant-wide control system to increment the production throughput totals. Customer Values Reliable long-range item counting on a non-contact basisImproved data accuracy arising from real-time, error-free pack detectionIncreased productivity as stability alarm flags preventative-maintenance needsSingle sensor accommodates a range of carton sizes without repositioning Specific Product Advantages Maximum sensing range of 30,000mm with…
