MC UR Solutions From UR Integrates Seamlessly 1 400

Advanced Motion & Controls Ltd. is the only Platinum-awarded distributor in Canada for Universal Robots (UR), which manufactures collaborative robot arms, or “cobots”, to make production operations easier. In addition, UR offers the unique UR+ ecosystem of certified accessories, add-ons, end-effectors, kits, and components to help facilities automate even more quickly.

Customers can choose from more than 340 options – also including grippers, software, and safety accessories – that integrate seamlessly with UR cobot solutions.

Boost convenience, efficiency, productivity, profit

With the UR+ line, businesses can optimize their automation projects by boosting the convenience, efficiency, productivity, and profit of these innovative collaborative robots. The UR team has tested and approved hundreds of these industry-leading products to work with its cobot solutions, to add quicker deployment, easier programming, and dependable operation.

UR+ is the top product platform to help organizations to automate their production in new, better ways. It offers innovative options for a wide range of applications – such as assembly, dispensing, finishing, machine tending, material handling, quality inspection, or welding. Application kits, also available from Advanced Motion & Controls, help to streamline deployment for common cobot tasks by combining multiple components with software designed on the UR+ platform.

The UR+ lineup comes in six main categories: accessories, end-effectors, handling grippers, plug-ins and interfaces, software, and vision solutions. UR also invites customers to join its UR+ Developer Program, which comes with access to the UR software platform.

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.
