Unique MultiLine Sensor Uses
Two Line Shaped Light Spots for Detection
SICK has announced the launch of the WTB4 MultiLine Photoelectric sensor. The WTB4 uses specially designed optics to create two line-shaped
light spots to continuously detect objects with large gaps, such as PCBs, or
product that is shiny or dark from leading to trailing edge. To activate the
output, both light sources must reflect light back to the sensor. Once both
light sources have been returned, the sensor will remain active even if one
of the light beams is not returned. By using two light beams, the WTB4 is
able to detect a wide range of products that previously caused downtime
due to incorrect detection from a single point sensor.

“Small” is the big news in motion amplifiers.
Air in Line Sensors for Use in
Medical Equipment Fluid Applications
Morgan Technical Ceramics (MTC) announces its range of piezo ceramic
Air in Line (AIL) sensors, ideal for use in medical equipment, including
infusion pumps, enteral feeding pumps, and dialysis equipment. The sensors are available as either a standard or custom-manufactured model to
suit specific OEM needs, the Air in Line sensor can be adapted to suit tube
diameter, tube holding and clamping method, additional sensing features,
mounting arrangement, or interface with a disposable cassette. MTC’s
standard piezo ceramic AIL sensor includes a bubble detector for a 4-5
millimeter (mm) tube, designed to minimize the footprint with a short flexi
circuit for easy connection via a standard ZIF (zero insertion force) connector. The sensor can be mounted in any orientation and is designed to be
dry-coupled to PVC or silicone tubing.
