When protecting guards, there are various factors to consider, depending on the application. For example, the type of safety gate, the respective installation situation and how it is used. With this in mind, Pilz is adding two new sensors to its portfolio of safety locking devices – PSENmlock mini for space-critical applications and PSENslock 2 with optimised hygienic design, as well as new versions with stainless steel components.
Southco, Inc. has recently introduced a Universal Latch Sensor (ULS) for enhanced security and constant monitoring. Southco’s Universal Latch Sensor is a simple magnet that attaches to an existing latch, and a magnetic sensor that attaches to the inside of an existing door frame. When the door is closed, and the latch is engaged, the magnet comes into proximity with the sensor, sending an electronic signal to your security system. This lets you know the door is closed and the latch is secure.
RS is now stocking all four of the new electric vehicle (EV) sensor series recently launched by Honeywell. While U.S. EV adoption continues to lag in comparison to China and Europe, with EVs still accounting for less than 1% of the 279 million cars and light trucks registered in the U.S., EVs made up 5.6% of all new U.S. car registrations in 2022, which is up from 3.1% in 2021 and just 1.8% in 2020. One reason for this recent market growth is that EV manufacturers have released both more and more affordable vehicles.
SCHURTER introduces the innovative THS switch series with optical sensor technology that can be concealed behind any surface without the need for mounting holes. A small opening in the user interface is all that is needed to allow the ToF sensor to actuate. Equipment and appliances used in public areas has created demand for non-contact switches to replace conventional touch-activated switches. The THS is a touchless switch that provides an excellent hygienic solution to prevent the spread of pathogens.
The Schmersal Group has expanded its range of optoelectronic protective devices with a series of safety light curtains/grids in Ex design. The new EX-SLC/SLG440 series is designed in the ignition protection types EX d (gas atmospheres), EX t (dust atmospheres) and EX op is (optical radiation) and is thus especially suitable for access protection of potentially explosive areas in industrial production – namely for zones 1 and 21.
The Q20-2 is a new polarized retroreflective photoelectric sensor designed for reliable detection, quick installation, and precise beam alignment. Its bright, visible red LED features best-in-class bore sighting, ensuring that the beam spot hits repeatably where it is intended. The Q20-2 features an industry-standard compact housing and robust threaded 3-mm mounting holes.
