Introducing the PHD Series KG Impact Sensor

Introducing the PHD Series KG Impact Sensor
 

PHD Inc. Series KG Impact Sensor - Available at Fluid Power Engineering


Introducing the PHD KG1 impact sensor & programmer. The KG1 easily attaches to any moving mass or machine with a bracket. It monitors the impact of moving mass force at the moment of stopping and compares measured impact of internal set points assigned by you. Early client reactions to this new product by PHD have been very positive. If you'd like to check it out, just say the word and we'll stop by with a demo case.



The KG1 Impact Sensor easily attaches to any moving mass or machine with a bracket. It monitors the impact of moving mass force at the moment of stopping and compares measured impact (in Gs) of internal set points assigned by the customer. Other Features:

• Output is sent when measured impact exceeds set point
• Failsafe output signal
• Two reprogrammable set-points (latching & non-latching)

BENEFITS

• Infinitely programmable
• Available pre-set from PHD or without settings
• Programmer optional (sold separately). One programmer can service many sensors
• Sensor comes standard with one bracket (#844462)
• Standard 2-day delivery

USES

• Detection of change in acceleration or deceleration
• Detection of shock absorber and/or cushion failure
• Speed control
• CNC & Mill machine crashes
• Count cycles
• Detect rotational force (centripetal)
• Vibration beyond set levels
• Early warning system sensing when machine or device exceeds set parameters
• Measure force at end of normal operation
• Benchmarking
• Signal when machine is not in motion

Introducing the FPE/Teledyne Dalsa Machine Vision Event

FPE is proud to announce our Teledyne Dalsa Machine Vision Event
 
Date: Thursday, January 31, 2013

Location: Fluid Power Engineering
Time: 9:00 am – 2:00 pm

Following the session, we’ll be available to answer any questions about your actual application that you may have. Bring in an example from your work environment and our experts will be there to assist you.
Cost: $50.00

Lunch will be provided.
 
We’ll cover:
Machine vision essentials – the basics.
Use of the popular Teledyne DALSA iNspect vision software. This is the easiest point and click vision software available anywhere. So simple, as a matter of fact, that other vision companies are trying to imitate this easy-to-use software.
Machine vision lighting. We’ll show you how to use various lighting solutions in your applications. We’ll cover axial, darkfield, dome, spot and different colored lights. Lighting is critical to a successful application. It’s a topic that is often overlooked.
You will leave with iNspect demo software, a FREE six color test light, and the knowledge to better manage machine vision!
