Mold Sensors Transmit Data Wirelessly.
The sensors are wired to one amplifier that remains with the movable or removable tool component. The other amplifier remains permanently mounted in a fixed position on the stationary platen or on the side of the press. When the two amplifiers are aligned, they can transmit and receive signals and power across an air gap of up to 15 mm via passive induction. The system can transmit up to eight sensor signals and eight output signals to trigger auxiliary equipment, plus up to 1 amp of power. The rugged hardware is said to be insensitive to heat, vibration, oil, or dirt.
