Dust risk eliminated

The conditions for switchgear in the processing or manufacturing of powders, pellets and other bulk goods are often adverse: regulations for dust explosion protection often apply, while dust pollution is often so great that conventional switching devices would have severely limited lifetimes.

Wireless sensors replace cables

Whenever a high number of wireless switches and sensors need to be integrated in superordinate IT systems, wireless networks are the first and best choice. Typical applications include AGV fleets, but also E-Kanban racks for replenishment of small parts, e.g. at workstations in assembly halls. A new wireless sensor has now been developed for precisely this purpose.
