Proximity Sensors

Radar Sensors are designed for driver-assistance systems.

Resistant to inclement weather and harsh environmental conditions, 24 GHz ultra wide band (UWB) radar sensors provide object detection and tracking. Parking assistance can be provided by rear-mounted sensors with 1.8 m range that can detect small objects in front of large objects and measure direction of arrival. Sensors with ability to scan out up to 30 m provide warning of imminent collision so...

Proximity Sensors

Two-Wire DC Sensors are used in industrial machinery.

Metal-bodied, 2-wire DC sensors allow in-line connection of control load with positive lead, eliminating use of NPN and PNP 3-wire format devices. Available in embeddable and non-embeddable formats with plug or cable connection, sensors have voltage range from 10-65 Vdc and can switch over 100 mA. Providing short circuit, reverse polarity, and overload protection, sensors come in M12, M18, and...

A Guide to Quality Control of the SMT Process

The printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturing process begins with cutting-edge equipment capable of accurately picking and placing up to 40,000 components per hour. This innovative equipment keeps error rates extremely low, and those defects that do occur are quickly caught by sensitive laser and optical inspection equipment.
