Chicago, Ill. – Omron Electronics (Schaumburg, Ill.) introduced ZX smart laser measurement sensor amplifier that can interface with three visible red through-beam and eight visible red displacement sensor heads. This flexibility lets the user use the same amplifier platform for a variety of measurement sensing applications. The sensor features direct PC connectivity to expedite data logging, waveform monitoring, PC control of operational settings, and a resolution indicator enabling informed decisions on critical acceptable high and low measurement values.

Not just for meditating, Zen nano controller’s 70 x 90 x 56 mm size still features a maximum of 34 I/O points with up to three I/O expansion modules, ladder programming, and eight operation buttons enabling front panel programming in ladder view on the optional LCD display. Programs can consist of up to 96 lines of ladder with three inputs and one output per line.
