Sick Stegmann,Inc. introduces its SinCos SEK52 servomotor feedback systems with HIPERFACE interface. It features a design that eliminates components that tend to wear, increasing reliability and uptime, while reducing power consumption. They are well suited for use in applications that need precision feedback in a compact package. The systems feature integral scanning to automatically
Applied Motion Products announces its STAC6-Si high performance stepper drives for 220 VAC operation. These drives are programmable for stand-alone operation with Si Programmer Windows-based software with integrated tuning. A graphical point-and-click format combines motion, I/O and operator interface functionality for simple machine sequencing. As a result, the device integrates on a machine with other devices such as sensors and PLCs. The drives feature current output from 0.5A to 3.2A with 220V AC input, and they provide software selectable resolutions from
Cole Hersee Co. introduces its low voltage disconnect (LVD) switch that eliminates dead batteries by automatically disconnecting non-critical loads from a battery when the battery falls below a predefined threshold. When the battery voltage is restored, the switch automatically restores the functionality of the ancillary equipment. The switch prevents the loads from disconnecting during starting, and it provides over-current, short-circuit and over-temperature protections to ensure
Magmotor introduces its compact high performance 8-pole brushless DC motor that is well suited for robotic drive systems, medical equipment and other automation applications where high torque to weight ratio are important. The motor is capable of 20 percent more torque than a standard 4-pole servo motor configuration for applications that may currently require NEMA 34 motors. The design produces a continuous torque up to
Avago Technologies announces its series of slim scrollwheel input devices that are available in 12 standard configurations for portable handheld applications. The model AMRX-1510 provides an integrated system for scrolling, directional navigation and push-button selection in a 1.9 mm × 18.5 mm package. The device combines an illuminated scrollwheel input device with tactile left, right, up and down navigation switches, and a center "select" button
MetaGeek announces its Wi-Spy 2.4X spectrum analyzer for resolving interference issues. With higher frequency resolution, amplitude resolution and amplitude range than previous models, it is easier to identify wireless signals that could be causing interference with Wi-Fi networks. Chanalyzer 2.1 software provides improved graphics, powerful play-thru controls and a user-friendly interface.
Tektronix, Inc. announces its TDSHT3 software that has been upgraded to support the HDMI compliance test specification version 1.3b. It is an HDMI compliance test software resident on a proprietary oscilloscope that controls the signal generators in a closed loop mechanism to automatically perform complex cable and sink tests.
Pepperl+Fuchs introduces Vibracon LVL-B series vibration limit awitches. The series sensors are insensitive to material build-up, external vibration and flow noise, and they have no mechanical moving parts for maintenance-free level sensing of bulk solids materials. The switches are well suited for sensing fine or coarse-grained material such as grain, sugar, animal feed, beans, gypsum, sand, plastic granules, chalk, cereals, rice, detergents and cement.
United Electronic Industries announces its UEILogger series that can log CAN and ARINC-429 bus data as well as RS-232, 422 and 485 ports. This functionality, combined with the logger’s small size and ruggedness (50g shock, -40°C to +85°C, 0 to 70,000 feet) makes it suitable for in-vehicle testing in the aerospace, aircraft, automotive, marine and rail transportation industries.
