Macron Dynamics Inc. (www.macrondynamics.com) is proud to announce its latest addition to the company’s line of actuator accessories, the T-Slot Sensor Kits. These sensors are made for precise position detection robotics and automation applications
“Macron T-Slot Sensor Kits are the latest addition to our automation accessory product line,” Craig Marshall said, Executive Vice President of Macron Dynamics. “These are the same high-quality sensors our engineers use when manufacturing custom automation systems and they can now be purchased on Macron’s website.”
The new T-Slot Sensors from Macron are inductive proximity sensors made for a seamless, low-profile installation to the ‘T’ found in Macon’s extruded aluminum beams utilized in gantry systems, MacFRAME machine framing, screw actuators, and belt actuators. These sensors will fit any eight millimeter wide t-slot.
The latest T-Slot Sensor Kits install easily in all MacFRAME aluminum beams, screw actuators, belt drives, and Macron actuators. Using T-nut capture and adjustability, the sensors fit perfectly to the actuator beam T-slot and give a low profile mounting.
Installation is done with a simple t-nut capture and screw, which allows adjustability and provides a secure fit. Its attached cord that relays information into a control system can be routed via a t-slot to make a clean system by not obstructing moving components.
The latest T-slot sensors are 24 V DC and available in NPN and PNP output transistor logic with NC (“normally closed”) or NO (“normally open”) configuration. Moreover, a quick connect or disconnect cord is embedded in each kit in lengths of two, six, ir 12 meters. All mating cord and sensors sets meet NEMA 1, 3, 4, 6P, and IEC IP67 ratings.
The latest T-Slot Sensors from Macron can provide manufacturers with output, position, or limit signaling into a control system making them more useful for a wide range of multi-axis, single-axis, robotics and automation applications.
