ifm efector will launch an online ordering system, as well as display its new ecolink M12 connector product line on Stand 5006 during National Manufacturing Week 2007 at Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, from May 22 to 25.
ifm efector’s E-shop online ordering system will allow customers to shop for sensor and control products using the Internet. E-shop online allows customers to check item availability in real time, place orders, view their order history, and track their parcel.
The new ecolink M12 connector family will be shown at NMW 2007. The new ecolink M12 connector range features a lock-in-place coupling nut that secures the connector to a quick disconnect sensor and prevents the c connector from detaching even in high shock and vibration environments.
Further, the IP68/IP69K rating ensures watertight sealing, preventing water ingress and damage, making ecolink M12 connector suitable for use in industrial applications including hygienic and wet areas.
The ecolink insert design of the ecolink M12 connector acts as a mechanical end-stop that prevents possible damage to the Viton o-ring from over tightening. A 316 stainless steel sleeve with saw tooth contour protects the nickel-plated coupling nut and maintains optimum sealing. Installation is fast, and no tools are necessary for reliable operating sealing.
The ecolink M12 connectors are designed with an innovative black transparent housing that offer high visibility of LEDs from farther distances and in well-lit areas.
Also on display will be the efector PMD sensor, which offers low-cost non-contact distance measurement with a 10 m sensing range. This compact PMD sensor can be used for a variety of applications including automated storage and retrieval systems, continuous web monitoring, and long range background suppression.
