National Semiconductor Corporation has announced TruTherm thermal management technology, which uses a new measuring technique to provide accurate temperature measurement for chips with integrated thermal diodes.
The Jumo Imago 500 panel mounting (92 x 92 mm cut-out) process controller can be operated as a fixed setpoint controller or as a profile or program controller. As a profile controller it provides 50 programs, each of a 1000 individual steps.
Matthews' Identification Systems Group (IDS) has released IDSnet, a networking solution for compliant coding and labelling equipment on the production line.
Mastercam has introduced additional capabilities for multi-axis tool paths, helping ensure safer and more accurate 5-axis machining. The tools add extra strength to the existing set of multi-axis options.
The electronic gear available through Bonfiglioli's latest VVVF drive in the Active series is a process by which Bonfiglioli uses a simple electrical signal termed a 'repetition frequency' to synchronise a slave drive or drives to a master drive so they run at a common output speed independently of each other.
Weidmuller has just released a new incredibility low priced DC switchmode power supply range called the ECOLINE. This low pricing however certainly does not match the high performance of these power supplies which include features such as a built-in remote status alarm, easily adjustable output voltage and up to 50% overload protection and auto-restart.
The latest version of Priority, Cincom's ERP software for SMEs, is now available.
Advantech has introduced the industrial-grade 19" FPM-3191G, which is designed with a stainless steel chassis and NEMA4/IP65 compliant aluminum front bezel. The FPM-3191G is designed to withstand caustic wash downs, it has a front bezel with a hard anodic coating to prevent panel abrasion and acid corrosion.
Autodesk has updated its software portfolio which provides solutions for 2D design, basic conceptual design to advanced 3D modeling, animation, visualisation, data management and collaboration.
Norgren has extended its VM valve island family to include the VM15. With a flow-to-size rate of 1000 L/min the 15 mm VM15 allows customers to specify a compact valve island solution.
The VMS 520 Volume Measurement System consists of two sensor heads that are mounted on a vibration-proof gantry frame.
Endress+Hauser's Cerabar-S pressure transmitter is for measuring absolute or gauge pressure of gases, steams or liquids in paper and pulp applications.
The CM servo family members are compact and lightweight servo drives. Torque ratings range from 5 to 68 Nm (which may be extended to 95 Nm by application of an optional forced cooling fan). The CM series is presented in three distinct frame sizes. These three frame sizes will be available in Australia virtually off-the-shelf in speed ratings of 3000 and 4500 rpm.
Miniaturisation of fibre optics, photonics, electronics and biomedical processes has driven the need for smaller and more efficient positioners. Parker's MX80 Micro Stage, claimed to be the smallest linear servomotor-driven positioner in the industry, is loaded with high-performance features for both rapid linear translation and precise positioning of smaller loads in small work enveloped.
The Allen-Bradley MicroLogix 1200 small controller is available with two communications ports. The programming/human-machine interface (HMI) port enables the connection of a local computer for the upload, download or monitoring of programs, while still maintaining network connectivity. Alternatively, it can provide an interface to a local display terminal, increasing application flexibility and helping to reduce system cost.
