Florence, Ky.—T-Slot Power Remote Tooling Sensor System eliminates the "hard" connection to sensors embedded in tooling, dies, and fixtures on stamping and forming presses. The system delivers sensor power and transmits signals inductively across an air gap, supporting up to four tool-mounted sensors without a hardwired connection to the control or power source.

Florence, Ky. —T-Slot Power Remote Tooling Sensor System eliminates the "hard" connection to sensors embedded in tooling, dies, and fixtures on stamping and forming presses. The system delivers sensor power and transmits signals inductively across an air gap, supporting up to four tool-mounted sensors without a hardwired connection to the control or power source. Almost any 12 V dc sensor or switch can be used with the system including proximity, air-pressure, photoelectric, magnetic, capacitive, or ultrasonic. The system has two parts that must align to transmit signals and power across a gap up to 6-mm wide: a receiver mounted on the press and a transmitter mounted on the tooling. Highly resistant to shock and vibration, the T-Slot Power Remote system is sealed to IP67.
