Automation control equipment manufacturer, Ace Controls International has introduced a new vibration sensor for process monitoring that detects local malfunctions in the automation process, thus preventing expensive repairs, maintenance and downtime.
The new range of V Sensors, available in Digital PNP, NPN and analogue versions, are unique in that they come with a built-in power supply and data recording unit.
The sensors are positively connected to the equipment, normally fitting onto the ISO Din Rail, and permanently measure the vibration level during the work process. If an increase of vibrations caused by an overload, varying drive power and decreasing damping performance above the preset nominal value is detected, the sensor changes its switching status to open or close, depending on the design and the process is interrupted via the connection to the monitoring system.
These new sensors are ideal for use with pick and place equipment, linear modules, rotary actuators and grippers.
