Proximity Sensor Circuit Technology

Discrete output proximity sensors are most important for industrial applications. They gain importance in such applications where it is necessary to record or count moving objects or work-pieces on machines or conveyors. Based on the connection of the final output amplifier transistor of a discrete proximity sensor to the power supply terminals, proximity sensors can […]

Electro-pneumatics and Automation

An electro-pneumatic system, in general, consists of an electrical or electronic control part controlling a pneumatic power part. Integrating the power density of pneumatic systems with the controlling possibilities of the electric systems opens up a new world of opportunities for the high-performing pneumatic systems. In this hybrid technology, solenoid valves are used as interfaces […]

Electro-pneumatic Circuit Development for a stamping device

Electro-pneumatics and Automation Authored by Joji Parambath This book explains the functioning of single and double solenoid valves and various electrical control components such as pushbuttons, electro-magnetic releys, limit switches, reed switches, proximity sensors, timers, preset counters, and pressure switches. Many typical single-actuator and complex multiple-actuator electro-pneumatic circuits are also developed to illustrate various applications […]
