    Temperature Controller A temperature controller is a device that one can employ to provide a consistent temperature in their process. Panasonic temperature controllers have a PID function to calculate an appropriate counter response to fluctuations in the process.

    PLC Filling Control In this application, a valve must be open for some period of time, and close exactly when the tank is full- not before or after- to avoid waste (Figure No.1). This requirement implies accuracy through the filling process. A classic solution is to use a PID algorithm. However, the valve’s mechanical lifetime could be compromised when the PID keeps the valve opening and closing frequently.

    Breakdown Voltage Breakdown voltage (also referred to as dielectric strength) and lightning surge breakdown voltage are two engineering terms used to rate the electrical robustness of a product. Both terms are used in reference to insulation resistance, describing the maximum voltage that a product can withstand for a certain period of time before its properties are permanently changed.  Hence, it is a measurement of the product’s robustness to abnormal voltage conditions.

    Photoelectric Sensors The most common technical question regarding Photoelectric Sensors is how to reduce interference between them. In order to find an answer, we must first grasp a better understanding of the question. When multiple Photoelectric Sensors are mounted in close proximity to one another, an unstable operation can result from “cross talk,” or influence from other photoelectric sensors. This result is known as mutual interference and is most common in thru-beam Photoelectric Sensors.
