Full concentration prevails before the start. Finally, the lights switch to green, and the bob is accelerated with all available power of the four sprinters who need to run completely synchronously. The starting phase only takes some seconds. Then, the pilots disappear aerodynamically behind the fairing. Often, a good start decides about succeeding or losing the competition. After the starting phase, the gravitation is taking over the further acceleration.
Businesses driving their digital transformation journeys are demanding access to all data in their manufacturing systems. This requires the combination of IT and OT networks, selecting Ethernet as a backbone, and enabling automation devices with Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) communications.
INTT Inductive Sensors for Extreme Temperature Ranges detect metallic objects contactlessly at ambient temperatures of up to 250 °C. The new INTT series has two new features that make it even more flexible and robust. For dynamic applications in hot areas, system builders can now choose from flexible cables and simple push/pull connectors. The plug-in sensor heads are therefore easy to replace.
