The CSX and CSXi are compact soft starter products intended for use with three-phase motors ranging from 7.5 to 110 kW at 400 VAC. Designed with the 'first time' user in mind, the CSX and CSXi incorporate a number of features aimed specifically at simplifying the installation and commissioning process while also reducing the installed cost.
The Megger MIT insulation testers incorporate a range of features. There are four instruments in the range which are all provided with weather-proof cases, thick rubber bumper strips, colour-coded range and parameter selectors, an analog/digital large numeral value readout and 50 segment arc and pointer LCD. (Models MIT 300, MIT 310 and MIT 320).
GE Fanuc has introduced the Wolverine - a 15" sunlight-readable, corrosion-resistant computer that is designed for use in the harshest industrial environments.
Rohde & Schwarz has expanded the frequency range of its handheld spectrum analyser to 6 GHz, thus making it suitable for all WLAN 802.11a applications as well as for general laboratory applications in higher frequency ranges. The R&S FSH6 combines best-of-class technical values with user-friendly menu guidance.
Developed in conjunction with a leading NI Alliance integrator, LabVIEW users now have a classic data logger hardware alternative for data acquisition tasks.
Industrial drive combinations tailored specifically to foodgrade process and production environments have been introduced by Bonfiglioli.
Known as DriveGuard, the Rockwell Automation safety architecture consists of an internally mounted electronics card that equips the drive with a 'safe off' function, preventing it from delivering rotational energy to motors.
The EX9018P analog input module accepts up to eight selectable mA, voltage or J, K, T, E, R, S, B, N, C, L, M thermocouple inputs and the EX9033D has up to three RTD inputs, both converting them to a 16 bit, RS232 or RS485 interface signal.
The UltraClean tank machine provides a highly reliable, cleaning fluid-operated tank cleaning device which can be used very economically when compared to manual cleaning procedures for tankers, railway wagons, reactors, food process and pharmaceutical tanks, blenders and storage tanks including Clean-In-Place (CIP) applications.
The Eriflex range of insulated flexible busbar is suitable for 'dropper' or 'take off' applications, from 125 to 3500 A. The rectangular design of Flexibar eliminates the need to terminate with crimped lugs and allows greater flexibility in tight switchboards. Due to its flat nature, it can be drilled for direct surface contact to the apparatus or clamped to solid copper busbar.
Balluff's range of miniature inductive proximity switches guarantee the user high operating reliability with low installation cost and minimal adjustment effort through its extended sensing range.
The IN 300 and IN 3000 series are inductive systems whose optional cubic or cylindrical sensors detect the presence of metal. Integration of the manual restart and external device monitoring functions in the evaluation modules of the IN series bring about considerable savings in safety relays, as three (IN 300) or six (IN 3000) sensors can be connected to each module.
Teamcenter In-Service has been released to extend the value of product life cycle management to organisations involved in maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO).
GE Fanuc Automation Americas has introduced the Proficy HMI/SCADA iFIX with FIX desktop software, which enables users of FIX software to take advantage of the many advanced database and connectivity features of Proficy iFIX, while continuing to view and control their plant-wide processes in their existing graphics environment.
CMW-BVA Valves has launched digital display quarter turn electric actuators. Nine models are available with torque outputs from 200-3000 Nm.
