The SIRIUS 3RW55 Failsafe soft starters are the first to feature the integrated Safe Torque Off (STO) function. This ensures that the motor comes to a complete standstill if an operator initiates an emergency shutdown. The motor then remains in this state until the restart interlock is used to restart it. 

 

 

 

KEB America today introduced EtherNet/IP for its S6 servo drive and F6 VFD products.  EtherNet/IP is immediately available with firmware version 2.6 and higher with the Application control board. KEB’s implementation uses the AC Drive Profile to increase interoperability between similar device types. KEB’s EtherNet/IP has been tested and is certified by ODVA, Inc.

 

 

 

The controller for decentralized technology comes into play wherever intelligent motion functions are required in the field. This relieves the central programmable logic controller (PLC) and reduces response times.

 

 

 

AMT series encoders from CUI Devices are advanced capacitive encoders with a variety of uses. AMT series encoders are typically mounted to the back of a stepper motor but can be used in many other applications. CUI offers the AMT series encoders with configurable pulses per revolution (PPR). The PPR can be set for most models using the free AMT Viewpoint software (the AMT10-series encoders are configured using DIP switches).

 

 

 

The HV600 variable-speed drive is engineered for use in HVAC building automation applications requiring reliable motor control. The HV600 features your choice of IP20/UL Type 1, IP55/UL Type 12, or IP20/Protected Chassis protection classes. Every HV600 comes with HVAC application-specific software presets, a Hand-Off-Auto LCD keypad, a high-visibility Status Ring for quick visual indication of drive status, and a real time clock for system accuracy.

 

 

 

Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. recently released the newest addition to its lineup of variable frequency drives, the FR-E800 Series. The micro-drive features a built-in PLC, and will include safety functionality meeting IEC 61508 standards and support various networks, including Ethernet/IP, MODBUS/TCP, and the soon-to-be-released CC-Link IE TSN.

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.

 

 

 

Advanced Sensing Solutions for Cost-Effective Machine Building

Omron IOLinkSensing technology has a major presence in manufacturing machinery. It provides the foundation for maintaining consistent quality and detecting any lapses in machine performance. If subtle changes in the physical properties of a machine can cause it to fail, then the sensors responsible for detecting those changes can save manufacturers lengthy downtime and repair costs.

In addition to helping cut maintenance costs, sensors also present an opportunity to make the machines more cost-efficient. Whether through their resistance to harsh chemicals or their ability to reduce the overall machine footprint, the right sensors can make a huge difference.
