You have certainly heard of it – the new SEW-Eurodrive: Movilink® DDI generation of drives. They are drive motors with a digital data interface. The supply cable is a hybrid cable with a coaxial element. So far, so good! But of course you would also like to have this engine generation in SRUs, cross-traversing trolleys, […]
Internet of Things, big data and autonomous robots: the transition to Industry 4.0 is in full swing. This also applies to components that work in machines and have long since become smart by providing data on their condition, for example. But integrating smart technologies is often complex for companies and involves external installation effort. This is exactly where we start with the SMS module for our i.Sense systems.
One might think that I would have said everything you could say about the autoglide 5 by now, but I haven’t come close. The autoglide 5 still has some advantages over the basic chain, including the following: The autoglide 5’s special crossbars increase the load-bearing surfaces or sliding surfaces. Larger sliding surfaces also mean lower […]
Strain gauge sensors are small sensors that measure relative changes in length. They often consist of a protective top layer over a wire applied in a zigzag pattern to a thin plastic backing. If the strain gauge sensor (and thus also the wire) is compressed, its resistance decreases; if it is stretched, its resistance increases. Elongation can be calculated from the change in resistance. You can use this characteristic by applying strain gauges to components whose elongation you want to determine.
We all struggle with tangled cables under the desk or lying freely in the room. They are unsightly and collect dust, and you may trip over them. So it is very important to hide and organise cables well. Flexible igus cable chains ensure order in the office and at home. 1. Cable chain OCR With […]
