The ultrasonic sensors

The ultrasonic sensors can be used to detect the presence of people, for example in front of termoscanners.
The goal of these tools is simple: to detect the body temperature of persons who intend to enter an open-to-public- place (bar, restaurant, cinema …), indicating the cases in which the temperature exceeds the safety limits.

In this way, customers will have the guarantee of a safe environment and will be able to visit the restaurant without any fear of their health. In the application described, the ultrasonic sensor of Micro Detectors it is installed in the upper part of the totem to locate the user in front of it, thus starting the temperature detection operation.

The ultrasonic products are based on one of the few technologies that operate independently of the shape and color of the object and is not influenced, for example, by the environment light.With the same system, this technology can therefore be implemented for those applications where it is necessary to identify the presence of people and monitor their inflow and/or outflow.

Hands detection in gel and liquid soap dispenser

Sensorns_Hands_detection_Recab 2_Sensorns_Hands_detection_Recab

The background suppression M18 photoelectric sensors without regulation (SS0 / SS1 series) or with regulation (FA BGS series) are among the most performing and efficient solutions for automated soap and sanitizing gel dispensers. In fact, background suppression allows the photoelectric sensor to operate independently of the color of the target object

This promotes, for example, correct detection of the hands placed under the dispenser, activating the release of the gel and / or liquid soap. Do you what more information about Hands detection in gel and liquid soap dispensers, text us here


Other possible civilian uses

Sanitization systems with ultraviolet light

Refrigerators used in supermarkets, canteens or refreshment areas, can be sanitized by installing an ultraviolet lamp.
In fact, UV-C ultraviolet light is effective against most bacteria, germs and viruses. However, prolonged exposure by users can be harmful to health.

Therefore it is necessary to disable it in the presence of customers or operators. The cubic (QM series) or cylindrical (FA BGS series) and ultrasonic M18 (UK1 and UK6 series) sensors detect the presence of all those who park in front of the bench by temporarily deactivating the emission of UV-C rays.

Free Webinar: VPN solutions

As digitalization is growing more and more, the demands for remote connections are increasing. Whether it's maintenance or data gathering this puts high demands on security in order to avoid data breach and attacks like Denial of Service that can cause huge and costly damages.


Free webinar VPN Solutions:
The most common way to solve this is by using some kind of VPN solution. This does however require a certain level of knowledge to implement and maintain, and can also be very time consuming as the number of connected sites increase.

This is something we at Recab can help you with.

In this free webinar VPN Solutions we will look at some different types of VPN, and also present a VPN solution from Insys that doesn’t require and knowledge to use, maintains a high security with certificates that are updated automatically, and that doesn’t require any expensive special mobile subscriptions.

Connectivity Suite – VPN_skizzen_2

Host for the webinar: Daniel Lundén FAE / Support – Industrial Data Communication

Webinar time: 45 min

For registration fill in the form in below, and we send you a email in a few minutes with a link so you can start your webinar whenever you want

Swedish Version:
Webinar – VPN Lösningar
I takt med den ökade digitaliseringen kommer också kraven på att allt mer arbete ska ske på distans. Oavsett om det gäller underhållsarbete eller datainsamling ställer den omställningen höga krav på säkerheten för att undvika dataintrång och attacker som Denial of Service som kan orsaka stora och kostsamma skador.

Det vanligaste sättet att lösa detta är någon form av VPN-lösning. Detta kräver dock en viss kunskap att sätta upp och underhålla, och kan även bli väldigt tidskrävande i takt med att antalet uppkopplingar ökar.

Detta är något som vi på Recab kan hjälpa till med.

I detta webinar kommer vi titta på lite olika VPN-tekniker, och kommer även presentera en VPN-lösning från Insys som inte kräver någon kunskap att använda, håller hög säkerhet med certifikat som uppdateras automatiskt och inte kräver dyra telematik-abonnemang.

Recab: IIoT – Industrial Internet of Things

Industry 4.0 has seen new concepts and technologies such as machine learning, artificial intelligence and automation developing at a rapid pace.


Guidance, What is IIoT (IIoT)- Industrial Internet of Things:
One key element of Industry 4.0 is the Internet of Things (IoT), where computing systems connect seamlessly with other devices in the cloud – transferring data over a network without human intervention. By combining these connected devices, it is possible to gather data, analyse it and create insights and actions to help with any given task. Consumers use cloud solutions every day, and now see them as part of the natural order. In the world of business, too, new technologies are emerging all the time that help increase productivity, eliminate errors and facilitate almost limitless connectivity.

Internet of Things (IoT) – generates connectivity
Within manufacturing, the IIoT does the same thing on an industrial scale. Rather than supporting simpler consumer or IT requirements, IIoT generates connectivity between machines, factories and entire supply chains.

In this new, hyper-connected world, the IIoT is revolutionizing the way we build things by enabling the acquisition and accessibility of far greater amounts of data, at far greater speeds, far more efficiently than before.

IIoT – the potential to connect all its component parts
However complex a machine might be, the IIoT has the potential to connect all its component parts, including sensors, cameras and embedded computers. Data is transferred from the machines and reassembled in the cloud, making it accessible from anywhere in the world in real time. As the breadth, depth and granularity of the data increases, machines can learn and improve performance.

Operators can use IIoT to predict when their machines will need maintenance or replacement, minimising downtime and maximising productivity. With cloud connectivity, there is also almost limitless potential to share information and optimise processes leading to rapid advancements in technology and innovation.

Challenges with IIoT in your business
But, as with all major breakthroughs, there are challenges for organisations to overcome. The nature of cloud computing and open source principles, where code is freely available to be shared, can make companies nervous that they are being exposed to unnecessary risk. Some organizations might be reluctant to adopt a fully cloud-based solution because they are worried about losing control of their data.

There is also the problem of mindset. Many people are resistant to wholesale change, and fearful of what new processes and systems might mean for their roles and livelihoods.

Recab: IIoT provides manufacturers with a world of new possibilities.
At Recab, our role is to provide the right hardware, insight and practical support for customers looking to navigate this new world of connectivity within an industrial environment. We are cyber security experts, so customer data remains safe at all times, while our suite of services covers the whole spectrum of computing from edge to cloud – including routers and application software.

Cutomer Case – Nordomatic AB a leader in energy-efficient building automation:
One of Recab´s recurring customers – Nordomatic AB, is a leader in Europe when it comes to energy-efficient building automation. By combining an optimal indoor climate with heavily reduced costs and a long-term sustainable society they create a unique offer. What primarily distinguish them is the combined competence and enthusiasm for both building automation and energy efficiency within properties says Kenneth Martinsson – CTO Cloud Service at Nordomatic.


Kenneth Martinsson – CTO Cloud Service at Nordomatic.

All parameters play a role for Nordomatic:
Energy efficient building automation is based on utilizing all the surplus energy that is created in a building, but which usually is not taken to use. The solution also takes the property´s building structure into account, since every property have a unique thermal inertia and is therefore optimally controlled according to precisely those conditions. Someone called it “Eco-driving” for real estate.

In order for our customer to be able to handle an overview and future forecast of approximately 200 facilities, Recab provides routers as well as VPN-solutions such as, see link below:
VPN-Solution: iCom Connectivity Suite – VPN

All monitoring takes place via a web browser where it is simple to keep track of statuses -whereupon you get an overview without being at the locations in person – “Eco-driving” for real estates.


Our three core divisions are Sensor, ID and VisionIndustrial Data Communication  and Embedded Computing Services, and these teams have access to a vast portfolio of products.

In the 1800s, the first industrial revolution saw manual labor replaced by steam power. Then, at the start of the 20th century, electricity changed the industrial landscape again. In the second half of the 20th century, the third industrial revolution placed computing at the center of everything. Industry 4.0 is all about connectivity. Our computers have become so sophisticated, they can learn to communicate – not only with each other, but with machines, factories and entire supply chains. In this interconnected world, it is possible for manufacturers to streamline operations and optimize processes, delivering huge cost-savings and efficiencies.


Industry 4.0 – ability to predict early potential problems 

Companies can also start to automate asset tracking and predictive maintenance. Previously, machines had to be taken out of commission periodically for planned repairs and upgrades. Industry 4.0 solutions give manufacturers the ability to predict when potential problems are going to arise before they actually happen, minimizing downtime and saving money.

With every advancement in digital technology, AI and automation, organisations have better visibility of their entire operation – a ‘helicopter view’ with real time access to data insights and analytics. Cloud computing technology enables almost limitless storage and sharing potential, and removes the requirement for siloed servers and data centers. Multinational organisations can now standardize global practices and bring harmony and continuity to all aspects of their business.

Industry 4.0 – Only benefits or…

But with all the great benefits Industry 4.0 brings, there are challenges to be addressed.

Even in the most basic office environment, IT upgrades and process changes can be difficult and expensive. In industrial settings, the complexity and costs increase exponentially. Hardware is required that can operate in tough physical environments. It needs to be robust and rugged, and able to withstand exposure to dust, vibration and extreme temperatures.

Many industries require strict adherence to regulations and specific certifications, so ensuring compatibility across a range of solutions can be difficult.

There is also the question of competition. As more companies adopt an Industry 4.0 model, it is becoming increasingly important to follow suit, and that can put pressure on staff and budgets.

But if you can overcome these obstacles and successfully embrace Industry 4.0, it will boost the efficiency and profitability of your entire operation.
