This month we meet Paul Woodhouse, who tells us; the story of how he came to Olympus, how it's changed over his 10 years and what is 'Mutton Busting'.

SICK OD Precision Distance Measurement Sensors

Highly accurate measurement down to sub-micron resolution


OD Precision short range distance sensors are laser sensors, which provide accurate distance measurements for applications that require a high degree of precision. They have a measurement range of up to 1,000 mm. Due to their accuracy, they are especially suited for controlling, sorting and inspection tasks used in quality control processes. 

OD Precision  

Suitable for non-contact measurement of nearly any object or color of material.  Common applications include measuring dimension, position and shape and machining tolerances.


  • Connects up to 3 sensors to one controller
  • High resolution (0.02 microns)
  • Glass thickness measurement with just one sensor head
  • Non-surface dependent measurement

Combitronics Communications

High Speed Transparent Communications over CAN bus


Animatics Corporation SmartMotor now features optional  Combitronics™ technology,a significant advancement in Integrated Motor Technology.   Combitronics is a protocol that operates over a standard "CAN" (Controller Area Network) interface.


Combitronic™ requires no single dedicated master to operate. Each Integrated Servo connected to the same network communicates on an equal footing, sharing all information, and therefore, sharing all processing resources.


Up to 120 SmartMotor servos may be addressed on a single array using Combitronic technology becoming one multi-tasking, data-sharing system without writing a single line of communications code or requiring detailed knowledge of the CAN protocol.
