i n t h e m a r k e t p l ac e range of sensing material options is available depending on the application. DJ Instruments Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Cells For remote wireless applications devices to deliver reliable long-term power. Tadiran 3D Imaging Sensor Provides support to a new range of robot control and inspection applications Tadiran Batteries has introduced the TLI Series of FSI Technologies adds a new 3D imaging sensor into batteries — a new family of long-life rechargeable its machine vision product line. The GS Family of 3D lithium-ion cells designed specifically for use in harsh imaging sensors provides support to a whole new range environments. of robot control and inspection applications. Standard rechargeable lithium-ion cells have inherent The GS 3D sensors, when used in conjunction with drawbacks, including short operating life (maximum the PowerEye machine vision system, can be used in five years), low maximum cycle life (1,000 cycles), high applications such as bin picking, robotic manipulation, annual self-discharge (up to 60 percent per year), and sorting products, mold clearance checking, and space limited temperature range (0C to 60C) with no posmonitoring and object recognition. In addition, the 3D sibility of charging at low and high temperatures. By technology will aid in determining spatial positions and contrast, TLI Series batteries utilize technology found measurements. in Tadiran's patented hybrid layer capacitor (HLC), FSI Technologies which stores the high current pulses required for two-way wireless communications, and has been field-proven in millions of cells to deliver 25-plus year service life.
