  3. FT Series- A genuine single source solution

    Sensopart’s FT series is a defuse reflective photoelectric sensor based on the blue LED light technology. They are largely used in industrial manufacturing to detect dark or transparent objects and will do much more. It is listed as a proximity sensor and has built-in background suppression with an NPN or PNP syncing output option. The desired output must however be ordered. Another nice feature that the FT series comes with is a quick connect that is an 8-mm micro connector. You can attach multiple variations of cable with it (2mm,5mm,10mm).

    The F10 blue light is the first from the FT series to reach the market. Its small size makes it an ideal choice for tight spaces. The other counterparts associated with this series are the F25 and F55. The FT series uses a short-wave light which allows easy detection of a transparent object reliably in comparison with the conventional red-light proximity sensors.

    These new sensors with blue light technology enable optimum detect

  4. Modern Day Issues Facing the Industrial Automation Sector

    As a newbie in the Industrial Automation & Controls Industry, I am still grappling at the nuances of this industry and while it will take me more than my engineering degree to completely understand this industry, I decided to learn using the only method conducive to a marketing person (i.e talking to the industry veterans).

  5. Factory automation and the reasons to choose it

    Charles Tashiro, Sales manager at JP Automation, Inc talks about automation and the top three reasons to choose factory automation for your production facility.

    • Repetitiveness

    • Production volume and life of the product

    • Quality

    Repetitiveness: If you have a production facility where people are manually assembling the same part over and over again, overtime they may develop trouble with repeated motion. Any repetitive task is a candidate for automation especially if it involves being exposed to fumes and assembly materials.

    Production volume and life of the product: Another major factor that will help you with your decision-making process is the production volume and the life of the product. Is your product expected to be made for many years with thousands of them being manufactured? If yes- then automation is the right choice for you.

    Quality: Lastly, the quality of the product will be consistent and greatly enhanced
