Florence, Ky. —G-Power Remote Series pumps up the power of tubular M30 proximity sensors to support up to eight tool-mounted sensors and now provides a rotatable rectangular head version for difficult mounting situations. The product eliminates corrosion and damage-prone slip rings and mechanical connections to provide a "connector-less" hook-up transmitting power and signal to/from sensors on removable tooling and grippers, indexing tables, etc. Power and sensor signals are delivered across an air gap of up to 12 mm, through plastic or glass. The local transmitting head mounts on the machine and is connected to machine control or PLC. The remote head is mounted on the removable tooling and is wired to sensors on the tooling. Sensor power and signals are transmitted when the two heads are aligned.
