Video: Sensors For Roller Accumulation Conveyors Make Logistics Smart
Equipped with an NFC (Near Field Communication) interface, the sensors can be easily configured using the Android app or a PC, and switching distances and operating modes can be set even when the power is off. The free “wenglor Sensor Configurator” app is now available in the Google Play Store.
In addition, the sensors can be conveniently and easily installed: they can be installed on the spot with just a few simple steps using the intuitive Fastclip system and quick cabling.
Increase efficiency, reduce costs, protect the environment
Thanks to intelligent stowage logic functions and energy-saving modes, existing performance potentials of logistics systems can be noticeably improved: thanks to the integrated Eco Mode, the power consumption of the solenoid valves is reduced by 75% and additional electricity savings are achieved when switched on. Thanks to the automatic reel shutdown, dynamic traffic jam zones, intelligent traffic jam monitoring, single & block deduction and time functions, numerous logistics processes can be easily implemented and optimized. The users benefit from a significant reduction in energy consumption, less noise, a clear reduction in error patterns, a higher material throughput and an up to 60% higher capacity of the conveyor system.

Humans and robots are working closer and closer together. Sensors create the prerequisite for cooperation at eye level. We asked Josef Zimmermann von Sick and found out what solutions the sensor manufacturer is developing for human-robot collaboration and what role deep learning plays in this
Magneto-inductive sensors combine the advantages of inductive sensors and magnetic sensors. The sensors from the Main Sensor series presented by Micro-Epsilon are based on a measuring principle patented by the manufacturer
Schaeffler has optimized its spherical roller bearings for main rotor bearings. This is intended to increase the reliability, availability and thus economy of wind power plants. In addition, the development of an asymmetrical spherical roller bearing should represent a further step towards greater robustness
With the WBR models, ASM is adding an important feature to the Positape Wegband sensor family. In the new WBR models, a tape deflection roller is mounted directly on the sensor, so that a flexible variation of the measuring tape's pull-out direction is possible
