Posital’s New ATEX/IECEx Graded Inclination Sensor
POSITAL has extended its TILTIX family of inclinometers (tilt sensors) to include explosion-proof models designed to operate safely in environments that contain potentially dangerous levels of explosive dust or gases. These devices have been certified in compliance with IECEx and ATEX directives and are suitable for use in mines, oil and gas facilities, agricultural applications, chemical plants, woodworking factories and milling operations.
New Profinet Interface for POSITAL’s Explosion-Proof Rotary Sensors
POSITAL has added an optional Profinet communications interface to its range of explosion-proof IXARC rotary encoders. These devices have been designed to comply with ATEX/IECEx directives for Category 3 electrical products and are suitable for Zone 1 and Zone 21 conditions (potential exposure to hazardous levels of explosive gases and dust concentrations). Areas of application for these encoders include oil and gas facilities, underground mines, chemical plants, milling operations and grain-handling facilities.
STAC6-Q-H – Advanced Step Motor Drive for Hazardous Locations
The Only Internationally Certified Hazardous Location Stepper Drive Available
The STAC6 offers best-in-class anti-resonance that ensures optimal performance of the step motor over the widest speed range. The drive is powered by single-phase 120 VAC which generates a nominal 160 volt DC internal bus voltage capable of driving the highest torque NEMA 34 and 42 frame step motors on the market. Features include
Applimotion's UTS Series Slotless Direct Drive Frameless Motors are permanent magnet 3phase ring type, low profile, direct drive motors with large through hole available in 29-240mm diameters. For the ultimate in smooth operation when scanning or positioning, the UTS Series Slotless motors offer zero cogging and sinusoidal torque angle curves. Considered one of the best motor constructions for many years, Applimotion has leveraged already proven motor technology as the basis for this new family of direct drive motors. Once you have taken advantage of a slotless direct drive motor you won’t go back to traditional motors.
The eTOP4FOOD has been designed and proven to solve the industry wide problem of HMI failures and less effective alternative HMI cleaning procedures. With the eTOP4FOOD no longer is the HMI required to be shielded from high temperature, high pressure cleaning.
MICROE SYSTEMS RELEASES THE NEW OPTICAL POSITIONING SENSOR (OPS™) SERIES
MicroE Systems has recently released it’s the new Optical Positioning Sensor (OPS™) Series, which delivers high performance and advanced positioning system features. The OPS™ sensor is equipped with MicroE’s patented optical design and features built-in interpolation and AGC ensuring optimal performance and reliability.
Maxon motor launches two sterilizable motors for use with or without planetary gearheads in high speed medical applications of up to 90,000 rpm. The brushless DC servo motors are characterized by their high nominal speed, extremely low-noise and low-vibration operation, marginal thermal emission and small size.
The Linear Shaft Motor has no backlash, no wear and provides extremely smooth motion. Because the Linear Shaft Motor is a simple mechanical design consisting of only a forcer (coils) and magnetic shaft, it is virtually maintenance free, creates minimal noise and operates well in harsh and wash down environments.
The Linear Shaft Motor is also an ideal replacement for more traditional linear motion systems including ball-screws, belt drives, piezo motors, u-channel motors, and rack and pinion linear actuators. The Linear Shaft Motor provides greater energy efficiency, precision, accuracy, repeatability, and cost efficiency than similar linear systems.
New hygienic designed electric cylinders are IP69K, stainless steel and USDA approved
Tolomatic has just released two new sizes of ERD electric cylinders that are hygienically designed, IP69K rated with an USDA Accepted Equipment Certification for meat (livestock), poultry, and dairy food processing applications. The new hygienic stainless steel design of ERD electric cylinders offer:
Thrust capacities to 4500 lbf [20,017 N]
Increased strokes to 39.4 inches [1000 mm]
Increased speed capacities to 57.5 inches [1460.5 mm]
Choice of ball, or roller screws
Lowest cost stainless steel actuator– with IP69K as standard equipment available out of the catalog with fast delivery
Extreme Environment Servo Motor is Ideal for Downhole Drilling
Maxon’s EC HD (Heavy Duty) motors are 22mm & 32mm dia. brushless servo motors rated to 480W that outperform all other commercial electric motors on shock, vibration and temperature tolerances. EC HD motors were developed in collaboration with the oil exploration industry and are designed to operate at depths of 16,000 feet and in boreholes up to 36,000 feet long.
The motors operate at temperatures up to 240°C and under atmospheric pressure conditions from high vacuum to 25,000 psi. They have also been proven to resist impulse and impact forces of 100G and can operate while submerged in oil.
New Servo Motor Series is built to withstand the most rigorous of washdown regimens
The new AKMH Series, from Kollmorgen, are brushless servo motors featuring IP69K sealing and are constructed using corrosion resistant materials.
Designed for CIP (Clean-In-Place) with no need for covers, the AKMH makes for quick cleaning which will maximizes uptime and profits. With 19 sizes available in multiple standard configurations, the AKMH family will open the door for more opportunities to replace expensive air or dirty hydraulic axes with a clean and high performing servo motor solution.
With its modular construction, this new brushless DC motor is available in three performance classes: the cost-optimized EC 19 at 60 Watt, the strong and high-speed EC 19 at 120 Watt and the sterilizable high-end version EC 19 at 120 Watt.
With maxon motor's winding technology, it is possible to offer various voltage versions. The stator has been designed without slots. Therefore, no cogging torque occurs resulting in excellent control properties and extraordinarily smooth running. Together with an optimally balanced rotor, low-noise and low-vibration operation is easily achieved.
