AutomationDirect has added new line reactor models and VTF (voltage time filter) series output filters that protect AC motors and variable frequency (VFD) drives from electrical disturbances.

 

 

 

New expansion I/O modules from AutomationDirect for the BRX stackable micro brick PLC include communications modules, universal analog I/O modules, and universal temperature combination I/O modules. Expansion modules snap onto the side of any BRX Micro PLC Unit (MPU) or BRX Remote I/O controller, creating a sturdy and rugged PLC platform.

 

 

 

The Hydraulic Pump and Power Systems (HPS) Division of Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, today announced a new online configuration tool for its Gold Cup Pump and Motor Series with support for additional product series planned in the future.

 

 

 

High performance for demanding applications. Our MOVIAXIS multi-axis servo inverter is motion control at the highest level. MOVIAXIS: the right choice for control quality within demanding applications involving several electrical axes.

 

 

 

The ProSafe-RS is a TÜV certified Safety Instrumented System (SIS) for use in SIL 1, 2, and 3 applications in a single modular configuration, with superior availability in a redundant configuration. It can be a standalone system or tightly integrated with our CENTUM VP Distributed Control System. 

 

 

 

In response to a global shift away from R410A and R22, Danfoss has added a complete portfolio of components to help OEMs develop air conditioning systems with R32. With its relatively low global warming potential (GWP) at GWP-675, high volumetric capacity and efficiency, lower purchase price and system charge, R32 has become one of the most popular alternatives—along with R452B and R454B—to R410A for commercial air conditioning systems and heat pumps.

 

 

 

Pfannenberg, Inc., a global manufacturer of thermal management technologies, has recently announced the PMF LED-Hi LED multifunction light, ideal for both indoor and outdoor use in industrial environments, including automotive, plant construction and logistics, open-cast mining, heavy industry, and maritime applications.

 

 

 

Regal Beloit Corporation, a manufacturer of electric motors, electrical motion controls, power generation and power transmission components, had recently announced that its Grove Gear Stainless Steel Worm Gear Reducer has achieved third party IP69K certification. Ingress Protection (IP) Marking rates the degree of protection provided by mechanical casings and electrical enclosures against intrusion, dust, accidental contact and water.

 

 

 

B&R's intelligent track system SuperTrak is now available in a vertical-mount variant. This helps to optimize the output per square meter of floor space. If products are only transported on the upper side of the SuperTrak, the weight is not supported magnetically. Instead the load is transferred directly to the rollers. The shuttles have a much higher payload capacity.

 

 

 

CARLO GAVAZZI has launched the HDMS Series, a single-phase motor soft-starter. It is an ideal solution for systems used in areas with weak power grids. Its unique design and control algorithm eliminate the need for a traditional start capacitor, effectively increasing reliability. This same innovative control strategy allows the HDMS to easily start Capacitor Start / Capacitor Run (CSCR) motors, and in the case of Permanent Split Capacitor (PSC) motors, virtually eliminate the starting current.

EV Powertrain LinesBy Bill Sarver

What will the automotive marketplace look like in 10 years and how do I prepare for it? That’s the question foremost on the minds of the powertrain plant personnel I encounter in my work as an industry consultant.

It’s not an easy question to answer given that we are in the midst of a truly revolutionary time in the automotive industry. To address regional emissions mandates and upcoming bans on gasoline and diesel-powered automobiles, manufacturers are ramping up their focus on electric vehicles (EVs).
