SMC AC-B Modular FRL Combination

July 30, 2015

SMC AC-B FRL UnitsAre you looking for clean dry compressed air?

SMC’S new AC-B series of modular type F.R.L. unit is available in six basic sizes and is interchangeable with the existing modular AC line. The AC-B series has a maximum set pressure of 125 psi and offers embedded gauge and pressure switch options not found in the AC-A.

The element and bowl on the AF series is now one-piece, making element replacement easier. Required maintenance space has been reduced by as much as 46% on the AF series, depending on the body size.

EX-L200 Laser Sensors

July 6, 2015

Panasonic EX-L200 Laser SensorUnrivaled self-contained high precision laser sensor

EX-L200 laser sensors are made to detect minute objects with utmost accuracy. Despite its miniature size, the thru-beam type (EX-L211x) can detect minute objects with a diameter of just 0.3mm, and the spot reflective type EX-L221x can even detect gold wire whose diameter is a mere 0.01mm.

High precision detection is fulfilled in the EX-L200 Series, one of the world’s smallest size with directivity and visibility achievable only by laser. The laser adopted is Class 1 (JIS / IEC / FDA) laser that is safe to use, so that there is no need to separate the areas of sensor usage.

SMC EX600 I/O System – Network Solutions

May 8, 2015

SMC EX600Total application flexibility

The EX600 Series I/O system represents the next logical step in the evolution of electronic/pneumatic control systems. While simple network I/O devices suffice in many applications, the EX600 allows for a much more comprehensive system design.

A full suite of diagnostics and programmable parameters allow the EX600 to meet the most stringent requirements.  The SI Unit is the key building block of the system. To it, various I/O blocks and valve manifolds can be connected. The EX600 can be configured as a centralized or a de-centralized I/O system, or a combination of both.

SMAC Linear Rotary Actuators

April 13, 2015

SMAC Linear Rotary ActuatorsPatented “Soft-Land” for delicate or high-value components

SMAC provides a comprehensive selection of combined linear and rotary actuators with either direct drive or gearbox equipped rotary units. They can easily be programmed to control force/torque, position and velocity in all axes at the same time.

The actuator has SMAC’s unique “Soft-Land” function which enables the unit to gently land on a delicate component with a controlled force to avoid damage of both the component and the actuator. This makes them ideal for applications such as pick and place and assemble.

AC Series Modular F.R.L. Units
