Nothing Happens Until Something is Sensed… Part 1

Industrial sensor manufacturers, like Rockwell Automation, have great product lines with lots of advanced features that could help our machines and processes be more productive. Sometimes though we need to step back to appreciate the benefits.

In this video, John Kinsey, Component Specialist from Rumsey, presents a simple, quick, how-to guide to better understand the basics of Photoelectric Sensing.

Coming up next...

Stay tuned for Parts 2 and 3 in our sensor series where John will look at more challenging applications and more advanced sensing solutions like Clear Object Detection, Background Suppression, Laser Measurement, Fiber Optics and “Smart Sensors” with built-in IO Link Features.

And remember…nothing happens in automation until something is sensed…
