Ace Controls International, an automation control equipment manufacturer, has introduced a vibration sensor for process monitoring that detects local malfunctions in the automation process.

The range of V Sensors is intended to prevent expensive repairs, maintenance and downtime.

Available in digital PNP, NPN and analogue versions, the sensors come with built-in power supplies and data recording units.

They 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 sensors are suitable for use with pick-and-place equipment, linear modules, rotary actuators and grippers.

For more than 40 years, Ace Controls has been acknowledged as the world leader in motion control.

It was back in the 1960s that the then unique Ace shock absorber was initially designed to serve the Detroit automotive industry. Since then, the company's world-renowned industrial shock absorbers have grown to some 170 different models.

In addition, the Ace motion control range has developed to include safety shock absorbers, rotary dampers, hydraulic dampers, feed controls, TUBUS profile dampers, SLAB damping plates and industrial gas springs.

An unbeatable range

Industrial shock absorbers
An extensive range of models are available to handle loads from a few grams up to hundreds of tonnes. High-capacity and heavy-duty construction ensure a very long working life.

Safety shock absorbers
These are designed for emergency stop and damage protection on industrial and warehouse crane systems.

Rotary dampers
These are used for controlling rotary motion, unidirectional or bidirectional damping. Adjustable or fixed damping rates from 0.001 up to 60Nm are available.

Hydraulic dampers and feed controls
These provide precise velocity control for critical feed rate applications when machining materials, as well as damping machine guards, fire safety flaps and oscillating suspended loads.

TUBUS profile dampers
This range of high-performance elastomer profile buffers offers much greater energy-absorbing capacity and life expectancy than other competing materials such as urethanes, rubber and steel springs.

SLAB damping plates
The damping plates provide the ideal solution for large-surface-area damping or vibration isolation requirements in the form of sheets or to customer-specific moulded shapes.

Industrial gas springs
These provide assistance to control the lifting and lowering of lids, flaps, hoods and safety guards. This extensive range can push or pull.
