Sensors

Simply put, Industrial Automation Sensors are input devices which provide an output (signal) with respect to a specific physical quantity (input).

Sensors are vitally important to all major industries and pathways, and TOOLKIT is here to help prepare students in learning these foundational skills.

From standalone training systems solely dedicated to sensors technology and exploration to integrated systems utilizing sensors to their full capabilities, we have the industry-relevant training system to help your students master these important technologies and skills.

    MAP-201: Body Supply Part Feeder + Detector/Ejector

    The process: A gravity feeder houses the parts in a column. Each part has a non-symmetrical interior housing and is ejected by a pneumatic cylinder. The correct orientation of the part is verified using a cylinder with a plunger. After verification, an oval section pneumatic cylinder moves the work-piece to the final position. Otherwise, a single acting cylinder removes the part via the evacuation ramp.
