IP 67-rated sensors
The R/IR sensors are for zero pressure accumulation applications.
The R/IR sensors are for zero pressure accumulation applications. The unique design of these sensors enables them to be mounted between the rollers on conveyors where mounting space is limited, making the sensors less susceptible to damage. The IP 67-rated R/IR sensors provide both mounting and system flexibility to help control product flow, prevent jams, and improve operational efficiency. Using M12 mounting connectors, users have the ability to daisy chain 50 zones in a series, reducing reflector hardware and installation costs. The two variants, R and IR, include outputs for both electric and pneumatic driven rollers. These sensors are ideal for any application where product damage or derailment may occur on an accumulation conveyor.

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
