RS adds 340 new factory automation sensor solutions
RS Components has announced the expansion of its PRO sensors range to give customers a comprehensive choice of sensors for use in factory automation applications.
The range consists of high-quality sensors and accessories and also includes ultrasonic proximity sensors and fibre optical sensors, which have been added to complement existing photoelectric proximity sensors (through-beam, retro-reflective and diffuse), inductive proximity sensors and capacitive proximity sensors.
Depending on the sensor technology selected, RS PRO products can be used to detect a wide range of materials including metals, plastics, paper, liquids, powders and particles. They can be incorporated into quality and verification systems: for example, to count units accurately, detect the presence or absence of an object, or to measure parameters such as pressure, flow, and viscosity.
Applications range from product manufacturing, laboratories, and food and beverage production to automated packaging and distribution warehouses.
In addition to these sensor options, the RS PRO range also encompasses a wide selection of load cells, rotary encoders, thermocouples, sensors switches and cables. It also includes essential accessories such as mounting brackets and a sensor tester switch.
All of which is intended to makes it easier for engineers responsible for testing, design or maintenance to source compatible products from a single supplier to meet all their automation requirements.
All RS PRO products are audited against demanding international standards, inspected for durability and consistency and tested by leading engineers. They are covered by the RS PRO Seal of Approval and come with a three-year warranty, to indicate their ability to deliver the quality, reliability and durability necessary to perform effectively in industrial environments.
