The data protection law will change on 25 May 2018. On that day, the General Data Protection Regulation of 27 April 2016 (hereinafter referred to as "GDPR") will come into force. That is why we are providing our Clients and Leads with this notice that will inform you about the ways in which we process your personal data.
Transfer Multisort Elektronik Ltd. Coleshill House Suite 1C, 1 Station Road Coleshill, Birmingham, B46 1HT, United Kingdom and Transfer Multisort Elektronik sp. z o.o., ul. Ustronna 41, 93-350 Łódź (hereinafter referred to as "TME") is the Data Controller of your personal data, therefore it determines the methods and goals of processing your personal data. Providing the personal data is voluntary, however it is also necessary for us to conclude contracts and perform services.
Obtaining information on processing of personal data
You can contact the Data Protection Officer on matters concerning the protection of your personal data via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by sending a letter to our headquarters.
Data collection and the purpose of its processing
We process your personal data because it is necessary to perform a contract with you i.e. provide a service (compliant with Article 6 (1) (b) of GDPR) including:
In addition, we are required by law to process your personal data for tax and accounting purposes.
Furthermore, we may process your personal data for marketing purposes i.e. promoting our products and services. If we do this without using electronic means of communication, the legal basis for those activities is Article 6 (1) (f) of GDPR where conducting marketing activities is a legitimate interest of the Data Controller. However, if we use electronic means of communication for this purpose i.e. e-mail or phone, then due to other applicable laws we only process personal data with your consent (compliant with Article 6 (1) (a) of GDPR).
Your personal data may be transferred to other parties that will process your personal data on their own behalf, including but not limited to:
Retention periods of your personal data
We will retain your personal data for the duration of a contract (performance of services) and after its dissolution:
Rights related to data processing
You have the right to access, correct and transfer your data, limit its processing, object to its processing, or withdraw your consent at any time without affecting the lawfulness of processing that was already performed on the basis of consent prior to its withdrawal (if the processing is consent-based).
Moreover, should you decide that our processing breaches the provisions of GDPR, you have the right to submit a complaint to a data protection authority.
Automated data processing (profiling)
Your personal data will be processed in an automated way (including profiling), however this will not cause any legal or other serious repercussions for you.
Profiling of personal data performed by TME means we process your data (including in an automated manner) and use it to assess some information, in particular to analyse or forecast personal preferences and interests.
Brands such as Panasonic, Omron or Autonics are leading manufacturers of automation components, including photoelectric sensors used in various industries. As a distributor of products made by these three companies, TME offers both standard and specialist models of such devices.
This kind of detector responds to the intensity of electromagnetic waves falling onto it (visible light, infrared, or laser beam). It is composed of two elements — a transmitter and a receiver — fitted to eliminate interference from other sources of radiation. When an appropriately modulated beam stumbles across an obstacle, the device sends an electric signal to a controlling or executive device. Depending on the range of the device, three types of photoelectric sensors can be distinguished:
When you decide to buy a photoelectric sensor, you should focus on the area of application. For instance, if your sensor should react to large objects made of a lightproof material, you should choose products from the CX-411-x range from Panasonic. Sensors for general applications are small (11,2x31x20mm) and work well in objects with poor lighting conditions. Depending on the model, photoelectric sensors in this series are adapted to be used with various ports or inputs, including M8 or M12 connectors with a 300 mm cable.
Specialist photoelectric sensors enable detection of objects that are transparent or have uncommon sizes or shapes. Transparent objects are easily detected by the BTS30-LDTL-P detector from Autonics that offers fast response times under 1ms. For small objects, a photoelectric sensor using precise laser beam is the perfect choice. In this case, especially worth mentioning is the EX-L2xx series from Panasonic or the E3Z-LL series from Omron, available at TME. Sensors in both of those series are characterised by high effectiveness, and are equipped with a long, 2m cable, thanks to which they can be positioned away from the control cabinet.
Due to the fact that photoelectric sensors are a part of industrial automation, they are exposed to harmful environmental factors. Dust, humidity, high temperatures, or hazardous substances are just a few threats that you can find in any plant. Therefore, sensors in the BJR series from Autonics come in high quality IP67-compliant enclosures.
Apart from the above, you should also pay attention to the material of the objects to be detected or even their colour. Numerous sensors use the laws of light reflection and refraction, and different colours absorb and refract light waves in different ways. This hugely impacts the effective range of a photoelectric sensor — which is from 0 to 60 m for products in TME’s offer. If you need a more advanced colour detection, e.g. a certain colour of a product on the production line means that it’s defective, you should consider purchasing a colour sensor. One series that’s particularly worth recommending is the BC15-LDT-C series of sensors developed by Autonics.
Both standard and specialist photoelectric sensors from Panasonic, Omron, and Autonics are available at TME off the shelf. Due to their multifunctionality and reliability, these detectors are perfect for both large factories and small production plants.
An effective process that minimizes downtime will accelerate the return on costly investments.
