Omron E2E NEXT Proximity Sensors Increase Sensing Distance

 

 October 7, 2019

Omron Automation Americas has added more than 2,500 new models to its E2E NEXT line of proximity sensors. The new models include an enhanced sensing distance that minimizes target contact during production and IoT capabilities for improved predictive maintenance.

Contact avoidance is essential for maximizing uptime. Seventy percent of unexpected equipment downtime is caused by component failures, of which proximity sensors account for a large proportion. E2E sensors are designed to help manufacturers reduce potential causes of unplanned downtime while benefiting from the sensors’ environmental resistance.

The addition of IO-Link functionality enables the sensors to reduce recovery time by indicating the location and cause of failures. They can also detect warning signs of impending failures and notify users via the network. The combination of IoT capabilities, long sensing distance, and oil resistant sheathing reduces the risk of sudden equipment shutdowns by a factor of three.

Key Features                  

  • Stability: the E2E NEXT line’s long sensing distance prevents unexpected equipment downtime caused by target contact, making the continued operations more stable
  • Flexibility: the extra-long sensing distance makes it possible to solve size-limited applications with smaller form factor sensors
  • IoT-enabled: the DC 3-wire models use IO-Link to help identify the location and cause of failures in real time
  • Oil-resistanta: E2E sensors are resistant to cutting oil, which accounts for approximately 30% of unexpected component failures
  • Easy-to-use: the sensors’ user-friendly design makes it easy to confirm detection status and ensures that your facility can recover quickly without requiring advanced support

Siemens: SIMOVAC Non-Arc-Resistant and SIMOVAC-AR Arc-Resistant Motor Controllers

The Siemens SIMOVAC medium-voltage non-arc-resistant and SIMOVAC-AR arc-resistant controllers have a modular design incorporating up to two 12SVC400 (400 A) controllers, housed in a freestanding sheet steel enclosure. Each controller is UL 347 class E2, equipped with three current-limiting fuses, a non-load-break isolating switch, and a fixed-mounted vacuum contactor (plug-in type optional for 12SVC400). The enclosure is designed for front access, allowing the equipment to be located with the rear of the equipment close to a non-combustible wall.

    B&R Automation: X2X+ Backplane Bus – Four Times More Performance

    B&R now offers the X2X+ backplane bus as an option, increasing the performance of the X20 system by a factor of four. And because all existing X20 I/O modules are already compatible with X2X+, all it takes to build more powerful machines are bus modules. The advantages of this new bus are particularly apparent in applications that involve many I/O modules or high data volume but where short cycle times are imperative. Read More…
