Double digit growth for semis in drives
Industrial drives will be a solid growth market
for semiconductors and components, according to a report by IMS Research. This market will
grow from about $2.5BN in 2007 to well over
$3BN in 2011. The growth is due to an increasing number of drives shipped rather than
an increase in semiconductor value in each
drive. Record high energy prices have led
many companies to install drives with motors
for the first time, as the resulting energy savings now mean that the payback period is
shorter than ever. Detailed data reported by leading motor drives vendors suggested that the market grew 15-16% from 2005 to 2006, with
double digit growth again in 2007, and further
growth to follow.

for retractable fittings
Combined with sensors, retractable fittings and
process analysis systems,
Uniclean 900 control system for retractable fittings
ensures fully automatic,
precise pH measuring even
in challenging process environments, e.g. in highpressure and high-temperature applications or in applications with heavily polluted media. The control system
immerses the sensors in the medium for short periods
in freely configurable intervals. Afterwards, the system
cleans and rinses the sensors, automatically pumping
cleaning liquid or water into the rinsing chamber. This
feature considerably extends the lifespan of sensors in
highly aggressive process media. In applications, sensors
do not need to be removed for manual cleaning, making complex bypass solutions and process interruptions unnecessary. Measuring can take place in the
pressure tank or main pipe, thus increasing measuring
accuracy. The pump operates with minimal wear and maintenance requirements.

Download or call for your FREE
Hose and Cable Reels catalogs
The GORE SFP+ Copper
Cable Assemblies for the
high-performance computing (HPC), enterprise
networking and network
storage markets offer a
more reliable, efficient and economical alternative to
fiber optic modules for transmitting 10 Gbps data at distances up to 25 meters. The assemblies comply with the
SFF-8431 standard while providing reduced jitter, a
very low latency, and a maximum signal eye opening.
They provide the highest performance with a lower dielectric constant, lower loss, tighter impedance control,
and a wider bandwidth. Through the use of a proprietary expanded PTFE dielectric, the manufacturer
achieves a smaller cable size for a given conductor or
a larger conductor in a specific twinax diameter. These
cables are completely RoHS-compliant, even with some
exemptions that have been recently eliminated. The connector is made with a high-performance, low-loss RF material to reduce dielectric loss and provide a higher
degree of impedance control through the link as well
as reduced crosstalk compared to lossy FR-4 designs.

Pressure Transmitters
Bus Terminal I/O
with ATEX and PED certificates
with digital multimeter terminals inside
Smart pressure and differential pressure transmitters are applicable to the
measurement of pressure or
differential pressure of gases, vapours and liquids in industrial condition. The active element is a piezoresistant silicon sensor separated from the medium by diaphragms. The casing is
made of aluminium alloy
cast, degree of protection
is IP66. The communication
standard for data interchange with the transmitter is
the Hart protocol or Profibus. The data interchange with
the transmitter enables the users to identify the transmitter, configure the output parameters and transmitter diagnostics. Typical areas of use are power industry,
chemical industry, oil and gas industry, paper industry,
heavy industry, sugar industry, water industry etc. Transmitters are available with the following certificates: ATEX
certificate (Ex d, Ex ia), PED certificate.
The use of the new Beckhoff KL3681 (Bus Terminal) and EL3681 (EtherCAT Terminal) increases
flexibility thanks to the
wide input range and automated measuring range
selection. High precision
and simple, high-resistance measurement from 30 mV
to 300 V allows the Bus Terminal to be used like a
modernised digital multimeter. In measuring applications
in particular, the expected voltage is often not known
during the planning phase. Automatic adjustment of the
measurement range simplifies use and reduces stock levels. The digital multimeter terminals measure DC and
AC voltages; in the case of AC voltage, the effective (RMS)
value is determined. Good immunity to interference is
achieved via the complete galvanic isolation of the
electronic measuring system and a measurement interval of typically 200 ms. The measured result is equivalent to that of a good hand-held multimeter, but the Bus
Terminal also has an interface to all common fieldbuses via which it can be read out and parameterised.

Full Scale Accelerometers
Electromagnetic Flow Sensors
for measurement of low-g acceleration
for assembly with other devices
Closed loop,
servo balance
confers these
sensors with
high precision
measurements in lowg applications. Despite
their low
measuring range, the A320 series of accelerometers are
very robust and can withstand shocks of 1500g and vibrations of 35g rms and operate in temperatures ranging from -18 °C to +70 °C. The new sensors are suited
to geo-physical and civil engineering studies and the predicative monitoring of large structures, something that
is becoming increasingly important in many parts of the
world. They are also suitable for a range of other applications in sectors including transport, industrial, military and aerospace.
The VNS05, VNS10,
VNS20 electromagnetic flow sensors
are light-weighted,
compact, suitable
for assembly with
other devices and
can measure even a
low flow. The electromagnetic type has high measurement accuracy and
repeatability. It is highly durable as it has no moving parts.
The influences of the measured fluid such as the viscosity, density, and foreign substances are low, and its
feature is that the pressure loss is small. The sensor is
assembled to various devices such as water treatment
devices or semiconductors for measurement or monitoring of the flow rate. The sensor can be used instead
of the electromagnetic flow meter in various devices.
Typically, the sensor is used for the sterilization system of the water treatment plant or sewage plant,
flow rate control such as the chemical injection system
of plant makers, or monitoring of gas lock of electromagnetic constant rate pumps.

Mobile Operator Control
Block Spray Nozzles
visualization in 10-inch format
cooling for continuous casting
The SIMATIC Mobile Panel
277 features a 10.4 inch touchscreen with a high resolution
of 800 x 600 pixels. This makes
it possible to show images of
the complex processes that
go on in large-scale plants.
Coming from the 270 family
of products, the device has a
high degree of protection, namely IP65, and is equipped
with a touchscreen, a stop button and an enabling
button in the standard version. A USB interface which
is accessible from the outside means that project transfers and backup of recipe data can be carried out very
quickly. A touch pen for precise control is provided in
a stable holder on the rear of the device. The new
mobile panel is configured by means of the "SIMATIC
WinCC flexible 2008" engineering software. All additional components such as connection boxes or cables
are the same as those of the mobile panel that is already
available. Depending on requirements, the user can therefore combine different SIMATIC mobile panels for use
in a particular plant.
The Cool-Cast nozzle assemblies provide an even spray
distribution for effective quenching
and higher quality
yield. The robust
nozzles use a
patented block body configuration and a precisely
aligned spray tip to create and maintain the ideal nozzle alignment, despite harsh steel industry site conditions. The two-fluid design nozzle uses both air and water. The desired spray pattern is maintained at different flow rates by varying air pressure to give a good turn
down ratio for the production of different grades of steel.
The block design nozzle assembly permits parallel inlet
connections without the requirement for elbows and
allows for simple yet accurate installation. Blocks can be
securely fixed to create a rigid assembly ensuring nozzles remain at optimum spacing and alignment to
guarantee consistent cooling performance. The need for
engineering maintenance on the cooling system is minimised by this reliable design.

Soldering and Rework Systems
Strain Gauge Amplifier
increase production throughput
for a strain gauge signal
The Metcal MX-5000 series Soldering and Rework System combines increased power and an
enhanced hand-piece with energy and tip-saving features.
Patented SmartHeat technology is coupled with 80 watts of
power to enable instantaneous
response to load conditions
with high levels of control. In
practice, this design ensures
that the system will not overshoot while recovering in seconds resulting in high productivity soldering and rework processes. The microprocessor-controlled system also incorporates a built-in digital power indication display, providing users with continuous feedback for a repeatable process creating
high quality solder joints. The ease-of-use associated with
this pioneering technology also significantly reduces required training investment. The series is composed of
different system configurations which users can choose
from to address specific applications.
The SG-2K-Z is a special
series of dual-channel
strain gauge amplifiers.
The amplifier can be used
to evaluate two differently scaled measurement ranges with just
one strain gauge sensor
connected. The input signal is switched to both channels simultaneously and separately amplified for each
measurement range. This means that analogue output
signals featuring the highest degree of accuracy and resolution are available for each of the two measurement ranges. In particular these strain gauge amplifiers
are often used for applications where there are predominantly two different operating states, such as high
and low-pressure states, and where both states need to
be monitored and evaluated accurately with one sensor. Due to the small span, the low measurement range
features a higher level of absolute accuracy. Fields of application for this technology can be found in production engineering, e.g. for force fitting processes, machine
construction, test benches and automotive engineering.

With motor failures representing the single biggest
cause of downtime across industry, with significant associated costs to business, Steve Pethick of Rockwell Automation describes how an intelligent, data-driven approach to motor control holds the key to efficient,
profitable manufacturing
From the smallest manufacturing line to the most complex production facility, the electric motor is the universal constant on which industry turns – the workhorse of
the manufacturing landscape. On any given production
line there may be countless motors employed in multi-axis motion systems, pick and place operations,
turntables and conveyors. And associated items of
equipment, from pumps and fans to mixers and compressors, are all motor driven.
For many manufacturers, the cost of downtime due to
any given motor failure can be significant, extending
into thousands or even tens of thousands of pounds per
hour of downtime. And the most expensive motor is not
necessarily the most critical: a failure on a single, small
motor on a humble mixer, for example, might be
enough to bring a plant to its knees.
To the many companies coming to rely on analysis of overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) as a means of maximising their uptime, the profligacy of electric motors
around the plant must surely be a major worry. The goal
of achieving world-class standards of 70% and higher
OEE scores means minimising not only the stoppages due
to unplanned maintenance, but increasingly those due
to planned maintenance as well. The sad fact, though,
is that most of the ten million motors installed within
industry every year across Europe still rely on traditional control and protection measures that don't contribute in any way to predictive maintenance. The typical bi-metallic thermal overloads and other conventional solutions serve only to switch off the motor in the event
of a problem, and provide no useful information whatsoever to help in the goal of boosting OEE. So how might
a forward-thinking manufacturer go about addressing
this issue to reduce downtime, lower overall maintenance
costs, give greater control of production uptime and reduce motor repair costs?

Bringing motor control and protection strategies into
the 21st Century, Intelligent Motor Control (IMC) from
Rockwell Automation combines the strengths of the Integrated Architecture infrastructure with a comprehensive range of intelligent motor control and protection devices, and condition monitoring systems. It gives
eyes and ears to the plant floor, using sensors and control devices with a high degree of embedded local intelligence to feed critical data back into PLCs, plant floor
condition monitoring units and higher level monitoring systems. The increased efficiency of motor communication and monitoring allows manufacturers to make
informed decisions about their processes. Rather than
simple on/off information, it gives them the data they need
to help improve production, in terms of preventing
downtime, increasing productivity, and boosting profit.
With all of these systems on common network architecture, everything from cluster of high performance
drives to a single plant floor sensor can be interrogated and tuned from a PC anywhere on the network, or
even in a remote location.
Further, as part of Intelligent Motor Control, higher level controllers and PCs can take inputs from condition
monitoring systems such as Rockwell Automation’s Entek range, while PLCs can take inputs direct from sensors on the plant floor. These might include vibration
sensors that monitor motor bearing condition, and
other down-line sensors whose operation can be indicative of motor condition or whose decline in performance (for example caused by the build-up of dirt on a
sensor controlling a conveyor) might provide an unwanted 'stop' command to a drive. All these inputs can be
combined as part of Intelligent Motor Control, with the
data from mechanical monitoring of the motor transmitted on the same network as the electronic control
information to higher level systems, where it can be interpreted and presented to users as meaningful operational information. That level of integration of the real-time condition monitoring processes can play a key
role in the modern strategic maintenance approach, helping manufacturers to effectively predict, prevent and react to equipment problems to minimise costly downtime.
An Intelligent Motor Control solution can also be expanded over time, either as budget permits, or on an ad-hoc
basis during equipment upgrades and refits, or as part
of a planned, ongoing OEE improvement strategy.
With its tailored approach, a typical system generally costs
10-15% lower than the installed cost of a conventional system, yet offers far greater benefits in terms of improved machine productivity, quality and availability –
all key parameters in boosting OEE. Further, Intelligent Motor Control based predictive maintenance
strategies offer huge benefits over reactive maintenance programmes, helping reduce maintenance times
and costs by up to 50%. It can also play a key role in helping to reduce energy consumption and increasing energy efficiency.

High-torque Gearboxes
in high-integrity single-piece housings
The gearbox case is a
single piece casting,
with all bearing seats integrated and machined
in a single process. This
optimises strength and
eliminates sealing surfaces that could deflect
under the effect of torque or radial forces - minimising
the possibility of oil leakage. The resulting high-integrity gearboxes deliver smooth, low noise operation
with a long product life. There are four choices in the
high power Unicase family, offering maximum torques
of 60,000, 90,000, 135,000 or 200,000Nm. Available in
helical-parallel shaft or helical/bevel right-angled drive
configurations, a very wide range of gear ratios can be
specified using two-, three-, or multi-stage reductions.
The gearboxes are suitable power transmission solutions
for material handling and processing equipment in
applications such as steel manufacture, aggregates,
mining and grain handling. The low losses of the helical gearing technology means that these gearboxes can
deliver energy efficiencies of up to 96%-plus.

Linear Motion Bearings
with lubricant reservoirs
The MX ball
bushings feature
a compartment
that deposits lubricant via capillary action across
a fibre pad onto
the friction surface of the ball bearings. The oil film is thus permanently maintained between shaft and bearings. A front
seal on the ball bush prevents lubricant leakage. This
long-life lubrication allows for significantly longer
maintenance intervals - a particular advantage for machines and facilities where access is difficult. Re-greasing within the ball circuit is not necessary. With a precise measure of lubrication on the pitch surface, the soilfree system has been designed to be more environmentally compatible. Due to the low level of lubricant
atomising, the MX ball bushings are also suitable for specific clean room applications. They are available both
with single or double bearings, with or without flange
(recessed, deep recess or centric) as well as with a circular, square or rectangular flange form.

Conveyor Rollers
Brushless Servo Motors
reduced noise and component wear
in small size
The 1700 Series conveyor
roller comes with the Taperhex Black shaft design. The
shaft design features an easyto-install, double springloaded tapered hexagonal
shuttle that is pressed into the
profile holes of the roller
for a secure and safe fit. The
Taperhex Black is constructed of high-quality electrically conductive technopolymer that has been enhanced for superior noise reduction and wear resistance. The shaft is not susceptible to
any movement relative to the profile, a problem usually associated with torsional forces induced by start/stop
operations. By eliminating movement, the springloaded it provides a solution that reduces noise levels,
component wear, and maintenance, extending the operational life of the roller. Providing a maximum speed
of 360 fpm and a maximum load of 36kg, the series is
suitable for package and parcel conveying technology,
warehouse and distribution, food processing, security,
and pharmaceutical applications.
The JL1 series of
small-size brushless servo motors
is offered in two
different rated
torques of either
0.1 or 0.3 Nm. It
goes well with
the compact servo amplifier JetMove 105. Both
models can be
supplied with or
without a holding brake. Their flange dimensions of 37
x 37 mm and their length of 81 - 111 mm make them
very compact. By standard, the motors comply with
the degree of protection IP64 and can be operated
up to a maximum speed of 12000 rpm. This way, the servo motor line-up in the lower performance range is completed. Typical applications for those drives are found,
for example, within screw capping machines, winding
machines, handling and assembly systems, textile machinery, robots and medical engineering.

Line Shafts
backlash-free and light-weight
These line shafts
are backlash-free
and available in
two versions - either with metal
bellows or with
elastomeric spiders. The backlash-free couplings guarantee productive
and efficient work processes. Torsionally stiff or flexible line shafts are used where torque or rotary motions
have to be transmitted at the highest possible angle accuracy and where large centre distances have to be
bridged. The shafts are suited for any synchronisation
and positioning tasks. They compensate axial and radial as well as angular alignment errors. For overall
lengths of up to 6 metres neither line shafts with elastomeric spiders nor those using metal bellows require
intermediate bearings. The shafts are made of lightweight
aluminium and feature high rotation angle accuracy. Optionally, they can also be obtained with a CRP pipe
(carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic). These shafts are also

with 3-phase AC induction motors
These drives are ideal for several applications that do not
need AC synchronous motor and related vector drives
performances or
these are too expensive. At the same
time many inverters are capable only of some speed/torque
regulation without position control. Combining both
worlds makes some previously unthinkable applications possible. This particular technology uses a proprietary commutation algorithm that allows a very accurate speed and torque control of standard 3-phase AC
induction motors. Motors of this type are mass produced
and available in numerous variants for reasonable
prices. These motors can be used in demanding industrial applications where so far this was not possible. By
adding an encoder such systems gain the positioning
accuracy that makes them an alternative to servo drives.
The drive features very fast acceleration & deceleration
times, precise torque control and position detection.

Drive Belts
Servo Motors
flat and shaped
The Enitra drive belts, either flat or shaped,
are suitable for drive transmission. High
transmission efficiency is a result of the excellent materials used for friction linings
and modern materials used for tension
members. When the correct tension is chosen, slippage-free operation of flat and
shaped belts (V-, Poly-V and timing belts) is
ensured, and in the case of timing belts, precisely synchronized drive is achieved. The characteristic features of our drive belts include
the transmission of high power (up to 1
MW) and optimal, small sizes.
The SM2A servo motors with integrated
motor can easily be programmed with
Atomic, a Windows-based and userfriendly development environment. The
SM2A series are constructed with a protection degree of IP65 and are equipped
with reliable connectors. Other features
include AC power supply, optoisolated inputs and outputs and an encoder for
the closed loop control of torque, velocity and position (optional). The motor
section is made of magnetic low loss material and has a holding torque from 3.4
to 12.5Nm.

Motors, Drives & Motion Control
Rotor Balancers
with integrated controller
for electric motors
The Motomate Brushless
Motor features compact
size, convenience and easy
programmability. Designed
with an integral controller,
the motor provides an allin-one solution for a wide
range of applications
where programmable
movement of simple mechanisms is required. Typical uses include control of automatic doors and door lifts, access barriers, rolling advertisement boards, intelligent conveyor systems, robotic
swimming pool cleaners, and machine subassemblies.
Motomate incorporates a built-in Milleneum2 controller, brushless motor drive, motor, and gearbox in a
compact 2-1/2" x 6" package. The brushless motor features a high motor efficiency of 90% compared to
asynchronous motors of only 40%, and a surprisingly high
starting torque given its compact size. With the power electronics incorporated directly inside the motor, the
need for an external speed controller is eliminated,
optimizing space for tight product designs.
The specificity of CMT
50H2 Elektra type balancers consists in the fact
that a special shape of
the rotor is used in them,
its circular symmetricalness, occurrence of an
inlet, preparation of special places for the mass
distribution such as, for
instance, bolts or channels. The balancers are prepared
for large-scale manufacturing and operate in the general plant management system. They are able to receive
and send the data in the data transmission standard accepted by the client. They are able to read the barcodes
for identifying of rotor. The balancers for small-size electric motors adjusted to manual service have the drives
realised only by means of belts. They are prepared for
a large series of balances. They have compacted position sensors enabling the application of the so called static scale, consisting in the projection of a momentary angular position of the rotor on the screen, after the
power that drives the rotor is switched off.

Torsionally Soft Coupling
Hybrid Linear Actuators
for diesel drives
size 11 double stack
The Centramax coupling
with high torsional flexibility for diesel-driven engines provides the flexible connection between
engine and gearbox for a
fail-safe operation. Developed especially for drives
subject to torsional vibration, the couplings with
performance ranges of 0.1
to 48 kNm are among the highest torsionally elastic couplings available on the market. As a flexible connection
between engine and gearbox, the couplings shift critical speeds far below idling speed and allow them to utilize the whole engine's working speed without limitation. The drive train is then subjected to very low continuous vibratory torques and stress on the aggregates
is reduced. Another important advantage is the coupling's
fail-safe operation under misfiring conditions. In addition, the coupling offers torsional softness and a linear
characteristic which ensure that resonances are not
shifted by the low load.
The 28000 series
double stack hybrid linear actuators are available
in three designs captive, non-captive and external
linear versions.
They are available
in a wide variety of resolutions ranging from.00317 5mm
per step to.0508 mm per step and delivers thrust of up
to 133 N. These models can also be micro stepped for
even finer resolution. These linear actuators occupy a
minimal 28mm square space and include numerous
patented innovations that provide customers high performance, endurance and new linear motion design opportunities in a small package. The use of proprietary
manufacturing processes which incorporate engineering thermoplastics in the rotor drive nut and a stainless
steel acme lead screw engineered to assure reliability
and performance. Typical applications include semiconductor handling, valve control, X-Y tables, hand
held instruments, telecommunications, and many more.

Brushless DC Motor
Drive Unit
with integral speed control electronics
on the basis of brushless motor
The miniature brushless
DC motor with integral
drive electronics for precision speed control measures just 32mm diameter
with a nominal length of
42mm. The compact BL30
EB delivers an output
torque of 30mNm at
3,500rpm with an 11W
power output rating. The motor's outer rotor design ensures minimal cogging and a high-load bearing system and IP54 protection sealing makes it an ideal
choice for small pumps, laser scanning heads, fans and
other applications where compact design, long life
and high performance is essential. The motor includes
an integrated speed control loop with a speed-set input to adjust the motor speed from 200 to 5,000rpm.
Available in CW and CCW variants with 12 VDC or 24 VDC
supply, a two-wire version operates from a simple DC
voltage and the four-wire alternative includes an 18 pulse
per rev tachometer output for speed monitoring. The
motor fully complies with EN 55014.
The STS-001 motor control unit is made in a
form of a compact set
of three printed circuit
boards situated on the
aluminium base that is
bolted to the housing
base (it performs a radiator role) and the
unit internal connection bundle. The electric drive is executed on the basis of brushless motor, so called torque
motor with a rotor with magnets of rare earths metals.
The motor is characterized by a high torque at low rotational speeds. The winding is three-phase, but the electronic commutation is executed in the motor STS-001
control system. Information about the rotor position is
supplied by means of resolver that is situated under the
motor cover. The motor is equipped with an electromagnetic release that in a currentless condition brakes the
rotor. The power supply board contains a push-pull
24V/120V type converter for producing of stabilized voltage that supplies the motor and a set of control keys
that control the motor operation through DSP.

Linear Motor
Motor Circuit Breakers
protection up to 100 Amps
The 1FN6 is a synchronous
motor with magnet-free
secondary section track.
The innovative motor concept has all the advantages of direct
drives such as high force density, high dynamic response, good control features and
outstanding precision. As the secondary
section track no longer has a permanent
magnet, the model is very inexpensive,
especially in the case of long traversing
distances. The motor is therefore primarily used for applications in handling
and linked axes or in highly dynamic
and highly precise feeding axes of waterjet and laser-beam cutting machines. It is
therefore an alternative to classic drive
solutions with mechanical transmission
elements such as gear racks or ball screws,
as well as being an alternative to other
types of motor such as asynchronous linear or reluctance motors.
Compact and
high integrity
protection of
electric motors
up to 100Amps,
and 100kA, is
provided by C4
range of motor
circuit breakers. Robust and reliable in operation, the circuit breakers provide optimal motor protection by integrating
the functions of a moulded case circuit
breaker and a thermal overload relay
into a single, highly compact unit. Rated
from 0.16A to 100A, in 4 frame sizes,
the range gives short circuit breaking
capacity of up to 100kA Icu without the
need for back up fuses. In addition, incorporated features such as thermal overloads
and phase failure protection ensure comprehensive protection of the electric circuit and the connected motor.

Motion Controller
Linear Guide
for ceramic servo motors
with a "turn-to-fit" function
The FlexDC Motion Controller is a dedicated single or dual axis control and drive unit
for use with Nanomotion's range of high performance ceramic servo motors and positioning stages. It includes PIV or PID servo control with quadrature or Sin/Cos encoders providing nanometre-level position control
with synchronised I/O and specific ceramic
motor algorithms such as ultra high resolution and dead band compensation to reduce
lost motion during reversals. FlexDC may be
fitted with a choice of Nanomotion's AB1A
or the more powerful AB5 drives and configured for up to 16 elements per axis. The
power supply is included in the 2U high
enclosure which requires 100-240 VAC.
The tolerance
of the maintenance-free
"DryLin W" system can be adjusted over the
whole bearing
surface by turning a knurled
adjustment screw integrated into the
side. Adjustment is in small notched
steps that can be both heard and felt.
Then the bearing fits the shaft correctly and can be moved linearly. If
wear occurs, the system can simply be
readjusted. The system is made up of a
housing consisting of several parts and
a gliding film made of technical triboplastic. As well as the basic structure and
continually tested materials, further
features include a small design height
and low friction.

Disc Couplings
miniature, with zero-backlash
with disengaging torque limiter
Disc couplings are
high performance
motion control couplings with zerobacklash, speed capabilities up to
10,000rpm, strength
and torsional stiffness characteristics, and low
inertia. They are often used in servomotor
and lead screw applications. Two single disc
couplings are often used in tandem when
greater misalignment or a longer distance
is required such as on gantry systems. Disc
couplings are an assembly of two black anodized aluminium hubs; multiple flat stainless steel disc springs to transmit torque,
and a centre spacer for double disc styles. The
discs allow for a substantial amount of misalignment between shafts, and remain rigid
under torque loads. Parallel misalignment
is accommodated by the double disc style or
by two single disc couplings used in tandem.
In the event of a
power cut a safety
gearbox effectively
locks but sometimes
this is a disadvantage. Take for example a motorised factory door, which
could be left stuck open or closed. The
MRV50.LS safety worm gear box with disengaging torque limited is developed for such
applications. A disengaging lever essentially provides a manual override so that the door
can still be operated until power is restored.
The built-in torque limiter comprises a symmetrical cone on the output shaft acting
against a hollow cone on the worm wheel,
all rotating in an oil bath. This gives precise
adjustment and consistency in the slipping
point during torque overload. Disengaging models are available for single-, threephase and DC operation, with 40- 80mm centres; power range is 0.09 – 3kW.

Linear Ball Bushing Bearings
Positioning Stages
save space and costs
ultra-low speed scanning solution
The corrosion-resistant version of
its Thomson linear Ball Bushing
bearing have a coefficient of friction of just 0.001,
which allows the
use of smaller and
lower-cost motors,
belts, gears and
ball screws. They also offer continuous travel speeds of
up to 3m/s and acceleration of up to 150m/s2 without
the use of derating factors. Derating factors can lead
to a situation where larger and more expensive bearings have to be used to achieve the same performance that the smaller bearings offer. When replacing simple high-friction bearings, these bearings immediately increase the efficiency and productivity of machines.
The bearings are offered in all standard dimensions and
adjustable, closed and open designs. They are not only ideally suited to new designs, but also for replacing
existing bearings from other manufacturers.
The ALS130H series linear
motor driven positioning
stages have been designed
for ultra high precision
scanning and positioning
applications where subnanometre level resolution needs to be combined with exceptional smoothness,
high traversing speeds and fast acceleration over travel ranges up to 150 mm. The classic two-part stage design outperforms leadscrew driven alternatives with their
inherent friction related stick-slip problems and offers
a far higher load acceleration force than piezo based
positioners. The 'H' stage design brings together the latest technologies, building upon and improving the
performance of the highly successful ALS130 series to
combine a centre driven zero-cogging brushless linear motor, anti-cage creep cross roller bearings and a
4.0 micron glass scale linear encoder with 40MHz encoder
processing when used with motion controls. The result
is a compact and ultra-stiff mechanical system for high
performance test, measurement and inspection applications.

circuit, together with a visible (red) LED.
The optical components are housed in a
small plastic housing, less than 1cm in size,
making the device particularly useful where
space is at a premium. The signal processing
circuit gives a 2 phase digital output, which
provides a resolution measurement of 50 microns, with a guaranteed minimum speed
of 50 KHz. The P10210 is suitable for use in
industrial position measurement equipment.
The ZSM intermediate stop module is a
mechanical device that extends and retracts
a physical stop, which provides for a high level of accuracy and repeatability. The simple
pneumatic operation can readily be sequenced using either a PLC (programmable
logic controller) or pneumatic logic. The
ZSM allows movement to the next position without the need to initially reverse stroke
the piston. Shock absorbers integrated into the guide carriage guarantee a smooth
linear deceleration to eliminate shock loading and to optimise cycle times.

Relpol celebrates this year its 50th anniversary. What
are the success factors of your business in your opinion?
What meaning have the trade shows for your company and what will the visitors of your stands see in
terms of product novelties?
The fast privatization which opened the possibilities of the close and profitable co-operation with reliable European partners as well as the know- how acquired in R&D and production process aspects allowed
us to create the strong development group which was
able to offer rapidly new products of quality comparable with those of European market leaders.
Fairs are an important marketing element of the
company activity. It allows the direct contact with present and potential customers, opinions exchange and
information about market needs. We have been participating for years in the main European exhibitions.
Can you name retrospectively some milestones of your
company history?
The first step was the mentioned above privatization.
In 70’s we started the license production of the relay
R15, in the late 80’s we developed the industrial relay R4. The next important step was, in consequence
of the co-operation with the European leader of
PCB relays, the transfer to Zary of the automatic
production lines of PCB relays. For us it was an important source of the technical knowledge which led us
to designing of the original new generation of PCB
relays series RM. Analyzing the commercial activity,
our unquestionable success was becoming the relays supplier of electro technical sectors of European
leaders. We also should mention the dynamic territorial expansion of Relpol achieved by creating our
own sale net in eight countries in Europe as well as
two production plants in Eastern Europe.
How does the revenue related weighting look in
your main product groups?
Analyzing the sales structure, we should point out the
increasing sale share of industrial relays and the
steadily sales of PCB relays.
What is your export quota? Which markets are especially interested for your company and why?
We sell 70% of our production abroad and it refers
to our complete products range. Thanks to our quality policy our natural customers are markets in the highest development and quality demand. Geographically our main clients are located in Western Europe
with the big potential and high technology level as
well as the countries of Eastern Europe with rapidly
growing markets.
Please name some interesting applications of your relays in the industrial area.
Our products are used with success due to its reliability in the safe systems among others for elevators, lift
devices and energetic systems. Recently we have also noticed the very quick development of products
related to the pro ecological devices and building installations.
For many companies in the automation industry the
recent years were record years, how was it in case of
your company?
We have successfully increased our production and market share. In consequences of the high demand in 2007
we decided to increase our production capacities.
For SLI: enter 21341 at
In the next fairs Relpol intends to present our new family of modular time relays: 10 functions relays with different function and possibility of the independent time
setting- it is a rare solution in this type of products.
The particular advantage of this design is the possibility of settings modifications without the need to
switch off and on the supply.
Afterwards we plan to introduce on the market the
modular electromagnetic installation relays with one
or two N/O contacts. This solution permits to adjust
one product type to the mostly common on the market groups of products supplying 24V DC, 24V AC lub
230V AC. Contacts are able to withstand very high loads.
The new product will be also the programmable relay NEED with LCD display and keys (keyboard). NEED
in version 8 inputs and 4 outputs will have the
changeable LCD module, whereas NEED- MAX (16 inputs/8 outputs) will have the fixed LCD and keyboard. LCD displays have very good brightness and contrast which will make easier programming in the
strong light exposure of other components. Programming communicates with computer through
USB and RS.
Recently your company opened its new subsidiary in
Germany. What makes this region as attractive location?
The German market has been for many years our
biggest customer, its industrial development is much
higher than on other European markets. Its potential
is very interesting for us and by intensifying our activities in this area we would like to increase considerably our market shares.
What are the company’s plans for the near future?
We would like to focus mainly on the industrial relays
sector taking particularly into consideration the niche
applications. The R&D department will be enlarged
and its main task will be the fast answer on the most
unusual customer’s needs as well as the participation
in the projects on the concept stage.

Insulation Testers
Temperature Regulator
rugged construction and compact size
linear control characteristic
The MIT400-range of insulation
testers with their Category IV
600V rating in line with
IEC61010, provide users with
invaluable level of safety. Safe
to use in all normal service
and maintenance operations,
even close to the source of
supply where transient levels
are highest, the testers feature
rugged construction that ensure long reliable service even in demanding industrial environments. Despite their tough construction, the
testers are compact to allow easy one-handed operation with either hand. Designed from the outset to be
fast and easy to use, all models incorporate a dual digital display, plus an analogue arc. The main display
shows the principal parameter being measured - for example, insulation resistance - in both digital format and
as an analogue arc, while the smaller secondary display
shows a related parameter - for example, insulation test
voltage - as a digital value. Users therefore save time by
measuring two parameters with a single test.
The RET-62 is a microprocessor temperature regulator
with a linear control characteristic. Version with 1
relay fulfils the role of an onoff control with hysteresis,
and a version with two relays is a three-state control
or a meter with an independent signalling of overrun of two set temperature thresholds. It measures temperature by means of
a PT-100 sensor attached with a triple conductor. The
control software compares measured temperature with
set points. The results of this comparison are command
signals which switch relays according to the control
configuration settings. When relays are on it is signalled with light-emitting diodes on the control front
panel. The values of temperature and other parameters
are being shown on a three-digit display. The regulator is assigned to control temperature in rooms, cooling chambers, dryers, bakeries, pressure plates etc., or
to signal an overrun the set temperature thresholds.

breathing glands as needed. The enclosures provide solutions for special applications with demand-ing requirements, e.g. in shipbuilding, or in high voltage
applications up to 10kV, or for extra-wide cable diameters up to 300mm2. A broad range of standard box types
can also be supplied. Dust and gas explosion-protected types are also available for the entire model range.
Ex i terminal boxes are suitable for environmental temperatures up to 75°C. Currently comprising more than
50 stainless steel, sheet steel, or high quality GRP models in 16 sizes, the stan-dard terminal box portfolio is continually extended to meet market demands.
The TRX is a series of integrated ultrasonic flow meters for gases in which the
ultrasonic sensor is integrated into the flow meter. In
some factories, approximately 20~30% of total amounts of
energy used is consumed by
compressors. The ability to
view the amounts of compressed air that have been
used is an all-important first
step towards reductions in the use of energy. The ability to assess accurately amounts that have been used allows one to reduce both the volume of air supplied and
the amount of energy consumed. Additionally, both operations and the numbers of compressors can be optimized. By virtue of integrated battery power, in the series the battery life has been extended to ten years, and
there is no need for wiring for external power sources.
The series is durable because there are no moving
parts, and, thanks to the cylindrical flow route, loss of
pressure has been totally eliminated.

Micro Cylinder
from 25 to 185 mm
with linear motor drive
The body of the AxiClamp connector has a
solid metal cone which
clamps the copper cable
strands against an internal taper on the metal
sleeve. When screwed
tightly together, the resulting connection provides long term contact
resistance equivalent to crimping. Two versions are
available: plug and socket connections that can be
panel mounted using the appropriate accessories, and
in-line versions for back-to-back splicing of cable. A rotation device is included with the in-line connectors so
that cables do not need to be pre-twisted before connection. The uninsulated connectors can be fitted with
a heat shrink insulation sheath after connection if required. The connectors are designed for the electrical
and mechanical connection of copper cables ranging from
6 to 300mm2, class 5 and 6 according to DIN VDE 0295,
IEC 60228. They are vibration tested to DIN EN 600682-6, 10g, 10-500Hz.
The RCL series with
24 VDC linear motor, available as slider and rod type,
were designed for
fast, precise handling as well as assembly of midget
components. The
miniaturised dimensions of the micro cylinder enables the design of a
complete assembly line virtually on the desktop. The linear motor cylinder with its sine-wave drive (3-phase coil)
and compact design (no magnetism leak outside) as well
as the integrated encoder ensures smooth, frictionless
and quiet operation. The three slider types RCL-SA
have dimensions of 20x30, 24x36 and 28x42mm on
the top and can position small workpieces with a mass
of 100g to 2Kg. Various controllers allow positioning up
to 3, 7, 64, 512, 768 or 1500 points with acceleration of
up to 2G horizontal (1G vertical) and a positioning repeatabilty of just 100µm.

Insulation System
Turbine Flowmeters
for clean environments
for neutral and corrosive liquids and solvents
The T-Tubes is an
FM 4910 approved,
advanced insulation system specifically developed
for stainless steel
process lines in
clean environments. It comprises pipe insulation for a wide range of sizes and custom
moulded components to insulate joints and fittings. It
is claimed to offer savings in both installation and
long-term ownership costs. Each component in the
system is thermoformed from closed cell, cross-linked
PVDF foam. The closed cell nature of the foam inhibits
moisture and vapour ingress while thermoforming
provides a durable, cleanable, puncture resistant skin.
For these reasons, they do not require the expensive to
install, PVC jacketing that many of the competing
open-cell or fibrous insulants need. Individual components are fitted quickly and secured and sealed with an
overlapping, polyethylene, self-adhesive tape, saving up
to 50% on initial installation time.
The PFA flowmeters in
ranges from 0.06 - 40
litres/minute is suitable
for neutral and corrosive liquids, fuels and
solvents. The Equflow
flowmeters provide
flow measurement capabilities in a wide variety of OEM and end-use applications. The digital/pulsed
output signal has a high resolution of over 100,000 pulses per litre. Other important properties include high accuracy, chemical resistance against very corrosive liquids,
and disposable wetted components. The on-board electronics makes it possible to change the function of
the sensor to a flowswitch with programmable limits,
or to a batch controller with preset value. The k-factor,
or number of pulses per litre are programmable to
suit lower speed counters. The models with interchangeable/disposable flowtubes are excellent for sanitary and hygienic applications and meet the USP Class
VI requirements. In the near future, there will be a
exchangeable/disposable PVDF versions available.

Intelligent drive concept
for automotive production
Decentral drive SK 200E:
cost-efficient integrated unit
Series of compact inverters
with scalable functionality
A major German automotive
manufacturer employs a transport
system on the factory floor to
move containers with car parts
from station to station. Based
on an intelligent drive concept
from NORD, the system consists
of a chain conveyor and hoisting
gears. The drive solution is an
intelligent combination of motormounted and wall-mounted frequency inverters as well as enclosure-mounted units. Decentral
technology for the chain conveyor includes fully integrated
type trio SK 300E units as well as type SK-DA 130E field distributor boxes supplying motor and maintenance switches,
plug-and-play connectors (Harting) and additional interfaces for inverters mounted near the motor. The plant's
hoisting gears are controlled by enclosure-mounted SK 700E
inverters. These systems are capable of ensuring precise dynamic positioning even in complex traversing applications. The
inverter-controlled drives are comple-mented by geared motors with electronic motor starters which can perform simple
actuation tasks (SK 140E) and, to some extent, soft starts (SK
150E) or reverse starts (SK 160E).
Type SK 200E frequency inverters introduced by NORD
earlier this year are
designed to be
mounted atop a
motor's terminal
box, giving users
combined, fully integrated drive units
for decentralized
applications in the
field. The robust
systems ensure reliable and price-efficient operation. Suitable for use in wide-ranging plants, e.g. in conveying systems, they have been optimized for price-sensitive market
segments. SK 200E drives feature sensorless current vector
control, an integrated brake chopper, and a control module for an electromagnetic brake. Configuration and programming are especially user-friendly. Despite their focus
on cost-sensitive applications, the units are not limited to
basic functions, but actually provide the same wide functional range as the compact enclosure-mounted SK 500E inverters. Even faced with higher requirements, users can therefore install SK 200E units throughout a plant and benefit
from unified drive handling.
NORD’s SK 500E line of frequency inverters for the 0.25
to 22 kW range comprises
various models that provide
selective extra functionality
as needed. All types feature
seven parameterizable control inputs, two digital
inputs, and one analog output. Clip-on control and
technology boxes give users
comfortable handling and
flexibility. Even the base
type SK 500E has a brake chopper and line filter, and provides functionality such as sensorless current vector control
and a PID and process controller. Other inverter models add
various combinations of advanced features, including e.g.
the safety function “Safe Stop” according to EN 954-1 Cat.
4, an onboard CANopen interface, a TTL encoder input,
extra I/Os, or the integrated POSICON position controller.
Larger models starting at 11 kW are equipped with an
external 24 V supply for the control card, which allows for
special functions such as emergency evacuation of elevators and enhances online availability. All inverters are also
available as cold plate versions or with a cooling element
outside of the enclosure (through-hole technology).

Giants in a UNICASE housing:
industrial gear units up to 200,000 Nm
NORD has extended its
range of industrial gear
units, adding new models with maximum
torques of 60,000 Nm,
90,000 Nm, 135,000
Nm, and 200,000 Nm.
NORD is the only supplier worldwide to
make UNICASE gears rated 90,000 Nm and above. The UNICASE design ensures optimal resistance against radial and axial loads. All bearing seats are integrated into a single-piece
gearcase, thereby eliminating all sealing surfaces that could
deflect under the effect of torque or radial forces. Narrow tolerances are ensured by machining the gear units in one setting, which results in smooth operation and extremely long
lifespans. The gear units feature a modular design which enables a quick and precise adaptation of gear configurations
to suit individual requirements. The units also offer high
flexibility in choosing the transmission ratio and the position
of the motor shaft. Users may use six sides and an optional
flange for mounting. Additional equipment options include,
amongst others, disk and drum brakes, a Drywell solution with
an additional oil drip plate, an oil leak display or oil sensor,
and several cooling systems. The gear units can adapt a maximum output of 1 megawatt.

NORD DRIVESYSTEMS proposes integral equipment configurations to drive users
in all sorts of industries. Comprehensive know-how, varied experience and the
fact that the majority of system components – gearboxes, motors, frequency
inverters, servo controllers and peripherals – is readily available from in-plant
production enable us to provide any drive solution the customer has in mind.
Whatever configuration is selected, the drive set up will be one of supreme
technical and economic efficiency.
Stronger, lighter, more compact:
NORDBLOC type UNICASE geared motors
NORD has enhanced its
NORDBLOC line of compact
UNICASE geared motors to
support the integration of
larger and stronger bearings,
which results in a higher capacity for overhung and thrust
loads or a longer bearing
lifetime. At the same time, the drive units are lighter owing
to FEM-optimized aluminum diecast housings, which also
provide robust, natural corrosion protection making a paint
finish unnecessary. For the current series, new features have
been added to supplement proven UNICASE characteristics. E.g.,
the drives can be installed more efficiently – the new models
allow for direct and cost-efficient motor mounting, but also
enable the attachment of very short, space-saving lightweight IEC adapters. Since the fitting dimensions remain unchanged, new generation models can easily replace older
geared motors from the same product line. Available in seven sizes of two- or three-stage gearboxes, NORDBLOC drives
are suitable for rugged environments and a host of demanding applica-tions. Proper ventilation of the housings is ensured
in all mounting positions. All NORDBLOC geared motor types
are also available as ATEX drives for hazardous environments.

Autec Safety Remote Control
Flow Meter
Vacuum Chuck
withstands corrosion in harsh conditions
with integrated touch valves
The V-Cone flow meter is
designed for high accuracy
measurement with virtually
no maintenance and long
life under the most challenging conditions. Prolonged
equipment exposure to water, acids, fuels, solvents,
high temperatures and high pressures creates a constant
corrosion problem in many process industry plants.
Ammonia, chlorine, cyanide, hydrochloric acid, hydrogen sulfide, methane and other harsh substances cause
corrosion that requires extra maintenance or reduces
the life of instrumentation, pumps, valves and piping.
Corrosion-related maintenance activity shrinks plant product throughput and increases operating costs. The flow
meter not only provides precise flow measurement in
liquid, steam or gas media, but it also requires virtually no maintenance in the most demanding processes where
corrosive conditions exist. It is ideal for use in a wide range
of industries that include chemical, electric power generation, food/beverage, oil/gas production and refining,
pharmaceutical, pulp/paper and more.
These grid vacuum
chucks, used vertically on sawing machines with graphite
parts, are equipped
with 9 touch valves
which enable secure
positioning of parts
with different dimensions. The valves eliminate the process of having to constantly replace and
reconfigure the layout of O-shaped seal according to workpiece contour. The seal for all part sizes can be laid once
and left in place. Parts to be machined are simply
pressed down covering one or more valves, which activate the pre-set clamping area/s enclosed by the seal.
This type of chuck can also be used for other machining jobs like milling different dimensions of aluminium
profiles. The valves help make the generally fast vacuum clamping process even faster. Further processes using touch valve plates are possible due to the universal design and configuration possibilities of these spring
loaded vacuum valves.

The compressed air is
ejected through a series of holes located in recessed
grooves on the nozzle surface. The aerodynamic design
of the 1-1/4 NPT Super Air Nozzle directs the air to a single point of convergence, delivering a concentrated stream
of high velocity airflow with hard- hitting force. This assures safe operation since the airflow that exits the nozzle can not be blocked, as required by OSHA standard
1910.242(b). At 80 PSIG, the air consumption is 188
SCFM. The typical sound level reduction from ordinary
open pipe is 27dBA.

Small Operator Panel
Solenoid Valves
with large visualization screen
directly operated
The Simatic HMI TP
177B 4" has a fully
graphical 4.3 inch
touchscreen and
four tactile function buttons. The
new product from
the 170 family of
panels is notable
for its compact format and a visualization screen that is
one third larger than that of comparable devices on the
market. The LED backlighting of the display can be
dimmed to 20 % of its normal brightness and can be
switched off completely by means of the integrated screensaver. It also features interfaces for Profibus DP and Profinet
IO, as well as terminals for connecting mobile data
carriers such as USB sticks, SD cards or MMC cards. The
operator can use these to create a backup of configurations, programs or recipe data, for example. The
new panel is configured with the aid of the "Simatic
WinCC flexible 2008" engineering software.
The ZE series solenoid valves
are directly operated and
can be used to control the
flow in a positive, fully closed
or fully open mode for refrigeration, hydraulic or pneumatic systems. They may be
operated by a variety of
electrical switches. Among
them are temperature or
pressure controls and time or
manual switches. These valves
are normally closed. When energized, the solenoid
coil provides a strong magnetic force which pulls a
plunger up into the plunger tube. This opens the valve
orifice permitting the flow of medium. They cannot be
operated manually. The valve body is made of forged
brass. The remaining parts are made of stainless steel
and corrosion-proof metal alloys. The gaskets are made
of rubber resistant adequately to the media the valves
are provided for. The ZE-1,6 valve head is made of
teflon. There is only one type of water-proof, fully encapsulated coil.

Measuring Instruments
for ventilation and air conditioning
The THM1176-PDA
device, which consists of a high-performance PDA and a
precision, non-directional probe connected via USB, can
be used as a standalone hand-held unit
or in conjunction
with a PC. It measures magnetic fields having flux densities of up to 20Tesla in the frequency range from
0Hz to 1kHz. The THM1176-PDA can be used anywhere
where high magnetic field strengths need to be measured and monitored: on scientific and medical equipment, such as magnetic resonance tomographs; in industry on equipment for smelting metals, or on transformer stations and large-scale electric motor drives, such
as railroad locomotives. It offers non-directional measurement thanks to isotropic, 3-axis Hall-effect probe, so
the result is independent of the probe direction relative to the field. Operation is simple using the PDA touch
screen or Windows software.
The range of measuring
instruments for mandatory filter monitoring in
ventilation and air conditioning systems contains two products: the
mechanical differential
air2guideP and the mechanical differential pressure gauge with analogue display and analogue output signal air2guideP+E. The instruments
were developed in response to a wide-ranging analysis of market and customer requirements. The differential pressure gauges are available for filter monitoring
in the following standard measuring ranges: 0 … 250
/ 500 / 750 / 1000 / 1500 / 3000 / 6000 Pa. All devices can
be installed and dismantled easily without the need for
tools. The measuring instruments offer a time saving of
up to 50% during installation compared with conventional models. They are designed for dry, clean, nonaggressive and non-combustible gases, mainly air.

Field Effect Transistor
Combustible Gas Detector
protection against explosive hydrocarbon gases
NE55410GR combines
two field effect transistors with 2 and 10W
power output on one
die, manufactured using Newmos technology. The N-channel power FET, designed as a
driver device for power amplifiers in the frequency range from 0.1
to 2.6GHz, features high thermal stability, a supply
voltage range from 3 to 32V and integrated ESD protection. The linear gain is 13.5dB typical (2W) and 11dB
typical (10W). With a voltage of 28V between drain and
source, a frequency of 2140MHz and an operating current of 20mA, the efficiency of the smaller 2W FET is 52%
typical - with the same voltage and frequency and an
operating current of 100mA, the efficiency of the 10W
FET is 46% typical. The NE55410GR, which comes in a
16-pin plastic HTSSOP is well-suited as a preamplifier for
base stations and UHF-band applications.
With its advanced point infrared combustible gas sensing element, the IR400 Combustible Gas Detector delivers reliable protection
against explosive hydrocarbon gases with a low power design that installs in
minutes and features heated optics to eliminate condensation and includes a
dirty optics indicator for fail safe operation. The model continuously monitors combustible gases in the lower explosive limit (LEL) range and provides a 4 to 20 mA
analog signal proportional to the 0 to 100% LEL concentration. The detector also monitors other conditions
such as supply voltage and optical path integrity. It is
designed to assist with operational efficiency and system problem-detection capability. The detector, for
example, uses only 4.8 W of power and with its advanced
diagnostics helps to prevent unplanned plant shutdowns. Additionally, the detector requires no routine
calibration, a feature that reduces demand for field technician time.

Intelligent Touch Panel
Ultrasonic Leak Detector
with 5.7" colour VGA TFT display
cuts cost of gas leaks
The compact ETV 0501 control
panel combines control, operation and visualization in a single
unit. The 5.7" colour VGA TFT display (640 x 480 Pixel) with touchscreen provides optimal operating
comfort, flexibility and high-resolution visualization. The integrated interfaces such
as the VARAN bus, CAN bus, Ethernet and USB enable
the simple integration of the panel into the machine
design. Decentralized and local I/Os can be connected
through the integrated real-time Ethernet bus. The
user is therefore not bound to a single topology when
designing the system. The available interface connections can be freely programmed from the application.
With a universal and fully integrated software tool is
provided for programming and visualizing functions. The
internal Compact Flash card serves as a storage medium for the operating system, application and application data. One of the two USB connectors is placed directly in the front of the terminal. Peripheral devices,
such as a keyboard, mouse, notebook or external storage media, can be connected easily.
The ultrasonic leak
detector is designed
to offer a quick and
simple way for maintenance engineers to
pinpoint gas leaks in
industrial applications.
The simple to use TMSU 1 can reduce maintenance expenses and can help to
improve plant and operator safety by enabling fast
and accurate detection. The instrument uses proven ultrasonic technology to detect leaks. This is achieved by
the use of an integrated piezoelectric crystal sensor, which
is tuned to recognise the high frequency sounds that are
generated by turbulence from high pressure gas leaking into a low pressure environment. The sensor can be
used to guide the operator to the loudest signal point,
enabling the exact position of each leak to be easily identified and the necessary remedial action to be taken. The
unit is lightweight and compact, making it a highly
portable and simple to use maintenance tool, with a
sensor mounted on a flexible tube, for use in restricted

Process Analysis System
Air Filter/Silencer
ensures optimal operating safety
reduces air flow restriction
The Stratos Pro transmitter
measures pH, redox potential (ORP), conductivity,
toroidal conductivity and
oxygen concentration values, eliminates this drawback thanks to a completely new, colour-based operating concept, ensuring
intuitive operation. Its
widescreen display indicates operating modes in
six different colours. The standard measuring mode, for
example, has a white backlight, while displays in the information mode are displayed in green. The diagnosis
menu, maintenance requirements and the HOLD mode
are also indicated by specific colours. The alarm status
was assigned a deep shade of red, and invalid input and
wrong pass numbers are signalized through a flashing
red display. Additionally, concise, self-explanatory pictograms facilitate operation. Equipped with universal
connection options, the new product family also ensures
flexibility in measuring electrochemical parameters.
The AF M701212 heavy duty
air filter/silencer has been developed to reduce air flow restriction by 20% compared to
previous models, providing effective air filtration for the latest high performance marine
engines, and resulting in more
reliable, and noticeably quieter performance. It is able to
remove contaminants that are introduced into the air
supply from both outside and inside a vessel. The filter's
specially designed oil-impregnated media can remove
sand, salt and other contaminants effectively, preventing them from degrading the performance and reducing the service life of the engine. Furthermore, the filter housing features an integral hose connection, which
routes clean blow-by gases from the CCV back into
the engine, increasing efficiency and enabling the latest environmental regulations to be met simply and cost
effectively. It is designed to reduce turbo noise, resulting in a noticeably quieter engine room, and helping
to ensure the health and safety of operators.

Infra-Red Temperature Sensor
The PyroEpsilon series is
a range of compact sensors
which measure the temperature of inaccessible
or moving objects and materials. They can measure
temperatures from -20°C to
500°C, accurately and consistently, with an outstanding response time of 240ms. These sensors provide a linear 4 to 20mA output representing target temperature
plus a 4 to 20mA input to control the sensor's emissivity setting. This method of emissivity adjustment is far
more accurate and repeatable than a built-in potentiometer, much easier to access and less prone to drift through
vibration. The sensor's emissivity setting can be adjusted from 0.2 to 1.0 to cope with different target materials and presents the opportunity for automatic control using a programmable logic controller (PLC). Alternatively the emissivity setting can be adjusted manually using the optional PyroTune module. If the 4-20mA
input is left open or short-circuit the emissivity setting
defaults to 0.95.

Gigabit Ethernet Switches
Multi-axis Accelerometers
five Twisted-Pair-Ports each
highly accurate and robust
The unmanaged SPIDER II Giga 5T and SPIDER II Giga 5T/2S
switches support Gigabit Ethernet have five Twisted-PairPorts each. The SPIDER II Giga
5T/2S also has two Gigabit-Ethernet-SFP-Slots. Both switches
are designed for a temperature
range of -40°C to +70°C and
meet all the relevant industrial standards. They are
therefore suitable for use in smaller data networks in
which the high bandwidth is more important than extensive management functions. The Twisted-Pair-Ports
which have RJ45 sockets support autocrossing, autonegotiation and autopolarity. The two SFP slots can be
equipped with Gigabit transceivers for fiber optic cables.
Distances of up to 120 km can be bridged depending
on the version. The switches can be mounted on DIN rails
and operated by the plug&play principle. Thanks to their
compact housing which measures 35x38x121 millimeters they can also be installed easily in junction boxes.
Information about device and network status can be read
from the LED indicators on the front panel.
The A545 range of highly accurate and robust multiaxis linear accelerometers
measure vector acceleration and are available in
either bi or tri-axial variants. Highly accurate piezoresistive strain gauge technology is utilised which,
unlike fluid damped devices, employs air damping so that
accuracy remains essentially independent of temperature. The transducer has been engineered for harsh environments and is packaged in a robust aluminium alloy housing incorporating positive mechanical stops
that confer excellent shock resistance and overload
protection. It is also fully compensated for the effects
of temperature on both sensitivity and zero outputs. Typical applications include biomechanical investigations,
data acquisition systems and more severe uses such as
crash test, impact, shock and vibration analysis. Acceleration ranges are from ±2 to ±500g and for customers
with specific applications, the accelerometers can be supplied with different acceleration ranges in each axis.

Insert Orifice
Buffer Module
saves weight and space
Reducing weight
and saving space
whilst lowering
overall design and
assembly time are
often among the
key objectives for
designers and machine builders, so
sourcing components to meet these objectives is critical. The IMH 2.5mm orifice is designed for liquids and
gases and is claimed to be the smallest, self-retained restrictor available helping designers to achieve the benefits of less space, less weight. The orifice is 100% flow
tested on water (on Nitrogen for the gas version) to ensure that every part is within ±5% of its nominal flow
rate. This ensures a more consistent system performance
and reduces the need for system rework. Flow tolerances
as tight as this are only possible if entrance and exit conditions of the orifice are closely controlled. This ensures
far more accuracy than an orifice specified by hole tolerance, because an ordinary hole held to a very tight tolerance, will not result in a tight flow tolerance.
The buffer module is an
alternative concept for accu-operated uninterruptible power supplies. The
SSE05 buffer module, simply connected in parallel to
the load circuit, supplies
stand-by voltage as soon as
the load voltage of the
power supply drops under a specific value, and
these without generating
an undesired wiping-impulse. By having a wide voltage range, the usage with
a unregulated power supply is possible. The ridethrough time is at 10Amp. and 22,5Volt 0,6Sec, with
1,0Amp. 18Sec. and with 100mA ca.85Sec. This means,
most of all line interruptions or fluctuations are recovered with such a system. In order to increase the buffer
time or and the load current, unlimited numbers of modules can be connected in parallel. The structural design
of this buffer module is especially made for a space-saving mounting onto DIN-rails.

for the wide range of applications
The PDS-100 has a range
from 500 nanoliters per
dispense to 2 liters per
minute continuous flow.
It will accommodate all
FMI pump sizes in both
fixed and adjustable displacement configurations.
The pump heads are integrally mounted to the control unit which is housed in
rugged anodized aluminium enclosure. The control
unit includes the stepper motor drives as well as programmable driver electronics. The front face of the enclosure
has an LED readout used to display menu driven programming, as well as membrane switches for navigating through the programming steps. It can be configured to control either one or two pump heads. In configurations with 2 pump heads, each pump can be
controlled independently for dual proportional dispensing & metering or synchronized to produce a
smooth, pulseless flow.
The P series module is a
multifunction power entry
module for the wide range
of applications, with current ratings of up to 10A.
Many optional features
are available in addition to
three different mounting
options (screw-mounting
on the horizontal or vertical side and snap-in mounting). Depending on the user's requirements, the modules are available with or without mains switches and
in various voltage options. Furthermore, there is a
choice of either one or two fuses to meet the requirements of both European and US standards. Depending
on the application, customers can choose between
universal filters, medical filters and high performance
filters for general or medical applications. The medical
versions feature a maximum leakage current of 5µA, and
therefore comply with the UL/IEC Guidelines for medical and dental equipment. If no filter function is required,
the modules can be assembled without a filter or with
an interconnection block, removing any need for cabling.

light weight and heavy wall designs and working pressures up to 18 bar. In addition, improved tough liner components resist nicks and imperfections, thereby helping
to reduce bacteria risks at the end connections that are
specifically designed to remove all bug traps. The innovative liner and special spiral construction also mean that
RX hose assemblies offer substantially longer working
lives than conventional assemblies.
A wireless bore gauge is
set to change the design of manufacturing
workstations. By eliminating the need for cables to download the
measurement data, the
new Wigauge wireless
bore gauge (WBG) offers manufacturers greater freedom in workstation design and practice. The use of precision hand-held electronic gauges in post process
gauging is not new, but the cables connecting the
tools to the receiving SPC system, printer or data logger have long caused problems. Downtime due to cable damage and tangles has been all too common,
and cable length and routing have often dictated the
design of the gauging station, leading to loss of efficiency. This class 1 Bluetooth gauge has a range of 15m or
more for data transmission, even in the hostile environment of an engineering machine shop. Up to seven gauges
can be linked to a single system. The rugged, high
precision, IP65 rated gauge is compatible with industry
standard M6 and M10 gauge head threads.

Grinding Machine
Gigabit Ethernet Bridge
high-precision and compact size
with two SFP slots
The Dominator 624
CNC machine offers
all the functionality
of a high-precision
grinding cell in one
compact machine. It
offers creepfeed, surface and profile grinding in a multi-axis configuration and the intelligent terminal CNC
control from a
diminutive 2,025 x 1,500mm footprint. The highly compact size makes it suitable for use in busy machine
shops where space is at a premium, but precision, easeof-use, and high productivity rates are still paramount.
The compact dimensions are achieved by using a cuboid
machine bed design and mounting the wheelhead on
a carrier assembly to provide the 'Z' axis, the work
table then moves vertically to provide 'Y' axis. In addition to retaining the maximum grinding dimensions within a confined machine envelope the cuboid machine bed
also contributes toward a very rigid machine platform.
The two ports of the
bridge are coupled
via a high-performance switching chip
so that, in addition
to media conversion,
a speed adjustment
of 100Mbps to 1Gbps is possible. This permits a simple
and rapid migration from Fast Ethernet (100Base-FX) to
Gigabit Ethernet (1000Base-T or 1000Base-X). The SFP
slots permit the accommodation of different SFP optical transceivers freely available on the market. For the
user this means the greatest possible flexibility during
network configuration. Due to the special construction,
the installation can even be performed during ongoing
operation ("hot swap"). The configuration of the
bridge is carried out automatically by auto- negotiation,
but may also be performed manually by DIP switch. The
Gigabit Ethernet Bridge is primarily deployed in corporate networks in order to universally combine different
types of fibre optic cable, to extend existing fibre optic segments and to operate legacy Fast Ethernet equipment in fibre optic-based gigabit networks.

Clamp-on Bimetal Thermometer
Pressure Switches
measurement in insulated pipes
certified for hazardous areas
The TB-Fix is a clamp-on bimetal thermometer suitable for
temperature measurements
of liquids and gases in insulated pipes with maximal 2 inches diameter. The thermometer
is especially suitable for heating, ventilation and air-condition. It is able to measure a
temperature range from -20°C to up to 160°C. Special
bases in four sizes for insulations from 30mm up to 110mm
enable a perfectly fitting installation at the pipe. The
bases are mounted with an adequate hose clamp. The
bimetal thermometer with the appropriate length can
be plugged in the base. The mounting parts allow a preinstallation during the construction whereas the thermometers are mounted into the base at the end of the
process to avoid damages during the construction
phase. Due to a special calibration process to adjust it,
the accuracy class 1 according to EN 13190 can be guaranteed in spite of the difficult heat transmission. The
housing and the front ring are made of solid stainless
The 901 range of ATEXcertified pressure
switches are suitable
for monitoring overpressure, vacuum or
differential pressure of
both liquid and gaseous
substances, including
aggressive media, in hazardous environments. The
switches can be used to monitor fluid levels and filters,
as well as excessive or inadequate pressure and pressure
differentials in closed systems. The switches are available in a factory-set version, in which the pressure setting and switching differential are set by the manufacturer, or an adjustable version, the 901 Prescal, where
the customer uses a scaled adjustment knob to alter the
trip and reset pressure, without having to use a screwdriver. A range of switch options are available, including pressure connections in various materials, shapes and
sizes. Customers can also select from a diverse range of
materials for seals and diaphragms. All switches are intrinsically safe and have been categorised as Temperature Class T4 and Explosion Group IIB or IIC.

Capacitive Touch Demo Board
Diaphragm In-line Seals
no need for external components
with all aseptic process connections
The PICDEM Touch Sense
2 Demo Board for capacitive touch-sensing applications comes with the
royalty-free mTouch Sensing Solution Software
Development Kit (SDK)
and is populated with a
16-bit PIC24FJ256GB110 microcontroller (MCU), which
features an integrated Charge Time Measurement Unit
(CTMU) peripheral for fast capacitive touch sensing. This
is also the world's first 16-bit MCU family with USB
On-The-Go (OTG). The board and supporting materials
provide a complete platform for implementing capacitive touch-sensing interfaces, without the need for
external components. Additionally, with the
PIC24FJ256GB110 family's rich peripheral integration and
256 Kbytes of Flash memory, and Microchip's broad portfolio of free and low-cost software libraries, embedded
designers can use a single MCU to cost effectively implement a wide variety of additional user-interface
functions, including QVGA touch-screen displays, speechbased audio prompts and USB connectivity.
The WIKA 981.51 diaphragm in-line seal is
designed for applications needing to fulfil
the highest hygienic demands. In addition to
both threaded pipe and
flanged connections,
sterile, standard-compliant connections for
instruments are now also realisable in the form
of a clamp connection.
The diaphragm seal is particularly suited to applications
in the pharmaceutical and food industries as well as for
painting lines. This seal is notable due to its circular cylindrical construction, enabling it to be mounted directly into the pipeline and making it self-draining. With the
sterile connections, and in conjunction with the measuring instrument, a dead-space free and crevice free measurement is possible. Both this concept, and the materials used have been certified by the EHEDG (European Hygienic Equipment Design Group).

Digital Single-axis Inclinometer
Air Shut-off Valve
resistant to extreme mechanical impacts
protects engines from runaways
For advertising,
please contact your local representative or
Karoline Bruse:
The AIDSI inclinometers are
used wherever the exact
alignment of a defined angle to a reference angle in
slow motional processes is to
be measured and controlled.
They are used in industry
for the levelling of plane-tables and rotary tables as well
as for applications such as monitoring cranes and hoisting platforms for safety or for the exact positioning of
working platforms and satellite dishes. The innovative
digital servo inclinometers measure the inclination of
an axis with continuous zero point monitoring. Installation is stationary and complies with protection class
IP65 making them suitable for use in rough ambient conditions and outdoor areas. The acceleration sensor
that is used works on a servo principle and includes a
pendulum-rotary system with taut strip suspension in
the hermetically sealed housing. In principle this method
is used to measure the deviation of the sensor position
from the acceleration of gravity direction. The analogue measured data of the sensors are converted to digital data with 19-bit accuracy.
The SpeedTrap valve range
now includes an ATEX approved electric 250mm
(10in) hazardous area Model 4261 emergency engine
air shut-off valve, protecting bigger diesel engines
from the risk of dangerous
and damaging runaways
when they burn hydrocarbon vapours or other combustibles, even after their fuel source has been closed. ATEX approved to EX II 3 G
EExn IIC T4, zone II, the valve is fully controlled by a custom electronic control module preventing the solenoid from generating excessive surface temperature. Solid
state sensing and control have increased reliability and
robustness allowing easy interface to other controllers.
SpeedTrap valves can be used stand-alone or in complete
runaway shut-down systems. They have a compact
design with easy low-cost installation and a remote reset facility for flexible control. An O-ring seal ensures
positive shutdown of the air supply to an engine as required for safety.

19-Slot PXI Chassis
High Thrust Jets
remote status monitoring and flexible mounting
more air, less noise
The RoHS-compliant 3U 19slot PXI chassis
- the PXIS-2719
- features one
system slot and
eighteen peripheral slots,
an innovative
cooling mechanism, a flexible rack-mounting design, and
smart chassis management for both bench-top and
rack-mount test & measurement applications. It features
an innovative design for even and efficient heat dissipation: the fans are located in the rear section of the
chassis to pull cool air in from the bottom, though the
PXI modules, and out the rear. This new design provides
uniform air flow between slots with only a maximum
10% difference in temperature measured on load
boards during testing. When this chassis is installed in
a rack, this cooling design significantly minimizes the
drawing in of hot air from the rear area of the rack where
all other devices exhaust to maintain a steady temperature inside the chassis.
Energy saving
High Thrust Jets
provides companies with a
high power
blast of air,
whilst reducing
compressor demand and lowering noise levels. Designed
to improve quality in applications such as swarf removal, product drying and material conveying, the
high thrust jets are ideal for companies looking to reduce energy bills while increasing performance. The jets
use a minute amount of compressed air to generate a
high power blow-off force. This is achieved by forcing
compressed air through an adjustable internal circular
slot. The innovative design means that the high velocity air stream generates an area of low pressure at the
rear of the jet that entrains ambient air at a ratio of 4:1.
This maximises high power blow off force, whilst complying with health and safety requirements.
