MC Mecademic MCS500 SCARA Robot 1 400


The SCARA robot arm is Mecademic’s newest industrial robot. Built under the same philosophy as our Meca500, our SCARA robot is a tiny, highly precise, and easy-to-integrate automation component. This small industrial robot is even faster than our six-axis model, making it a great choice for maximum throughput and high-precision applications. With fast cycle times at competitively large payloads, our SCARA is ideal for a variety of applications including pick and place, assembly, lab automation, semiconductor, and more. This robot is unique in that it offers a combination of simplicity, precision, and high performance at significantly lower overall costs than competitive models.


Optimize space, cycle time, and costs with the world’s most compact SCARA robot. Stay tuned for the upcoming release of our newest robot arm!

Key Benefits

What are the benefits of using Mecademic’s SCARA robot?

Optimize cycle time

With speeds of up to 3,250 mm/s, our SCARA robot’s high-performance design ensures faster cycle time and maximum throughput.

Minimize factory space

With a built-in controller, Mecademic’s SCARA robot is more compact than any four-axis industrial robot on the market.

Benefit from precision

Engineered with the same philosophy as our Meca500, the world’s most precise industrial robot, our SCARA robot offers high precision at even faster speeds.

Choose simplicity and flexibility

Our SCARA robot is a plug‑and‑work automation component that is very easy to integrate with any computer or PLC, and any programming language. Unlike most competitive models, Mecademic’s SCARA robot can be mounted on a table top or upside down, for use in a wide variety of settings.

Minimize industrial robot integration costs

Lower your initial cost

All Mecademic small industrial robot arms come with lifetime firmware updates and do not require any software licenses.

Minimize maintenance costs

Our SCARA robot does not require any battery changes over its entire lifetime due to its use of absolute encoders.

Save on factory space

Our SCARA robot’s small size and embedded controller ensures a tiny overall footprint and reduces space per unit costs.

Reduce logistics costs

Integrating our SCARA robot is quick and easy, which cuts the costs of installation and training.

MC PepperlFuchs Monitoring Condition of Plants w Vibration Sensors 3a 400

To enable long-term monitoring of vibrations, Pepperl+Fuchs recently launched a new portfolio of vibration sensors. You can find out what distinguishes these products in the following blog article. Using a wind turbine as an application example, we will also show you how you can use vibration and acceleration sensors in combination to keep an eye on both long-term and short-term changes in vibration.

The portfolio of vibration sensors

Pepperl+Fuchs has recently started offering a range of vibration sensors to perform reliable measurements of vibration velocity and acceleration in low or high frequency ranges. Compared to similar products, Pepperl+Fuchs’ vibration sensors have approvals up to SIL 2, a large measuring range of up to 128 mm/s, and automatic condition detection for ball bearings. Due to their robust housing and encapsulated electronics, the sensors impress with maintenance-free operation and a particularly long service life.

The three designs in the portfolio are available with different certifications and approvals. In this way, you can find the right vibration sensor for every application:

  • VIM3 series: The compact VIM3 series is suitable for applications up to SIL 1/PL c, and has output options for analog or IO-Link.
  • VIM6 series: The VIM6 series is approved for hazardous areas up to Zone 1/21. With an extended temperature operating range of -40°C … +125 °C, the sensors are ideal for high-temperature areas.
  • VIM8 series: Due to a particularly robust housing made of duplex steel, the vibration sensors of the VIM8 series are designed for use in offshore applications as well as in harsh and hazardous areas of Zone 1/21. Moreover, the sensors have an approval up to SIL 2/PL d.


Vibration sensors vs. acceleration sensors

Not only vibration sensors, but also acceleration sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs are used to measure changes in vibration: Both record the vibration acceleration in g. Nevertheless, the sensors differ in their technical operating principle and are therefore each suitable for different applications.
