Developed by Minco, the sensors can be set to measure gauge or absolute pressures in environments with pressures ranging from 15 to 6000 psi. They produce a 4- to 20-mA analog output and require a supply between 12 and 30 VDC. Accuracy is 0.15% or 0.50% for P8211, while long-term stability for the sensors is 0.15% URL/year.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/sensors/stainless-steel-pressure-sensors-handle-6000-psi" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/sensors/stainless-steel-pressure-sensors-handle-6000-psi#comments Products Sensors Thu, 26 Feb 2015 19:32:00 +0000 46851 at http://machinedesign.com Inductive Proximity Sensors are IP67-Rated http://machinedesign.com/sensors/inductive-proximity-sensors-are-ip67-rated <div class="node-body article-body"><p>Rectangular compact inductive-proximity DC sensors from APS offer top or front sensing capabilities at ranges of 2.5 mm and 4 mm. The sensors come in two- or three-wire configurations. The high-frequency oscillation-type sensors, ranging from 10 to 30 VDC, are housed in unshielded polycarbonate and contain LED status indicators. Normally open or normally closed NPN, normally open PNP, or normally open NPN/PNP outputs are available. &nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/sensors/inductive-proximity-sensors-are-ip67-rated" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/sensors/inductive-proximity-sensors-are-ip67-rated#comments Sensors Mon, 23 Feb 2015 18:52:00 +0000 46661 at http://machinedesign.com Sensors for Safety http://machinedesign.com/sensors/sensors-safety <div class="field-deck"> Sponsored by MTS Sensors </div> <div class="node-body article-body">What is functional safety?
