Mitsubishi Electric Corporation announced recently its newly developed KOTSUMON system uses the company's Maisart artificial-intelligence (AI) technologies to extract video data for the automatic identification and analysis of specific types of human motions, such as those of workers on production lines. The system simply requires a normal video to automatically measure work efficiency and detect omitted or mistaken motions, which manufacturers are expected to use to upgrade their line operations for improved productivity.

 

 

The frequency inverter CFW-08 Wash is an inverter dedicated to applications that require a higher protection degree. The Nema 4X protection degree assures protection against dust, dirt and directed water jets.

 

 

 

Bihl+Wiedemann offers with the speed monitors an effective method for safe processing of signals from sensors and encoders, enabling for example a safety reduced speed for setup operations. Each speed monitor can be incorporated into the control feedback circuit using adapters and cables already available, without affecting the actual control process.

 

 

 

Switching point, switching window, filter, sonic  beam width, output logic: when a new sensor is installed in a machine, a variety of parameters must be adjusted to the application. The parameter server function via the IO-Link interface is the solution for parameter exchange within seconds. This ensures maximum system availability.

 

 

 

With SEW-Eurodrive's new mechatronic industrial gear unit, they will be the first supplier to deliver industrial gear units, motors and decentralized frequency inverters in a standard package. The inverter-controlled Plug & Play solution reduces project planning to a small number of interfaces.

 

 

 

Power-on Clutches are used to couple two parallel shafts. The armature hub assembly is mounted to the same shaft as the rotor assembly. The armature hub accommodates a pulley, gear, sprocket, etc., to transmit torque to the second shaft. The field assembly is mounted on the shaft and retained by a loose-fitting pin or bracket through the anti-rotation tab.

 

 

 

The IronHorse GSD8 series of DC drives is a microprocessor-based design with non-volatile memory storage that is programmable with adjustable parameters, programmable alarm outputs and offers a digital closed-loop algorithm for motor control.

 

 

 

FLIR Systems, Inc. recently announced the FLIR CM94 2000-amp AC/DC electrical utility clamp meter. Designed to tackle high current electrical measurements in demanding utility and industrial job sites, the CM94 features an oversized jaw to easily manage larger conductors and busbars. With CAT IV-1000-volt overvoltage protection, the CM94 works on relays, distribution panels, vaults, switchgears and switchboards, as well as on service conductors, feeders, and production power lines.

 

 

 

As it continues to evolve, adding new capabilities and connectivity, the revolutionary Festo Motion Terminal (VTEM) is challenging machine and process engineers to look beyond the limits of conventional pneumatics to a world of new possibilities opened up by this software-driven valve terminal.

 

 

 

Every so often a game-changing idea like Festo’s new CPX-AP-I decentralized remote I/O reaches the market, giving machine designers new possibilities to increase the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of their projects. In fact, the genius of the design and the potential unleashed by these CPX-AP-I control modules earned Festo a coveted reddot product design award earlier this year.

Powerflex 755tThere’s a contaminant that has long troubled water and wastewater operations, and you won’t find it in the water.

Harmonic distortion is like a pollutant on a power line. It can cause electrical equipment to act erratically or shut off, resulting in unplanned downtime. And it can frustrate workers by making water treatment systems more difficult to optimize.

The IEEE 519 standard gives industry a target to achieve: a total harmonic distortion of 5% or less. The question is, how do you hit this target with minimal risk or impact to your operations?

Festo Automation SuiteWith the free, PC-based Festo Automation Suite commissioning software, getting a new drive package up and running couldn’t be simpler and faster. Only five easy steps are needed to parameterize and configure all parts of an installation, from the mechanical system to the controller using the Automation Suite’s commissioning wizard. It’s all very intuitive.

The Automation Suite is one of Festo’s digital tools to simplify and accelerate automation projects. It works with both Festo and third party controllers.
