WEG Explosion Proof motors are suitable for applications requiring UL or CSA certification for hazardous locations. Thermally protected with thermostats, all motors manufactured are submitted to hydrostatic as well as other routine testing at the factory to ensure compliance to the required specifications. WEG NEMA Premium Efficiency Explosion Proof motors are specifically designed to meet or exceed all EPAct requirements for energy efficiency.

 

 

 

EXOR has taken the highly successful harsh environment eTOP500 series and updated it with the recently released eX700 series. This natural progression allows you to combine a high-performance sunlight readable display with state-of-the-art connectivity such as OPC UA.

 

 

 

Hammond Manufacturing has announced its new 1557 family. Initially available in four plan sizes, each in two heights, it is available in polycarbonate, sealed to IP68, and ABS, designed to meet IP66. The sizes are 80 x 80 x 45 and 60mm and 120 x 120, 160 x 160 and 200 x 200 in heights of 45 and 70mm. All versions are available in black and RAL 7035 grey.

 

 

 

Omron Automation Americas launched its new E3AS Series Reflective-Type Photoelectric Sensors that combine accurate detection for diverse targets, exceptional sensing distance, environmental robustness, and compact size. These sensors are designed to help manufacturers manage varied and flexible production needs more effectively.

 

 

 

The growing consumer desire for more product variety and packaging sizes is creating a need for smaller, more flexible machines. To provide a more cost-effective option for OEMs building smaller machines, Rockwell Automation is introducing a new Kinetix 5100 servo drive, Kinetix TLP motor and cable that can function as a system without a controller.

 

 

 

Loop detectors are used for noncontact activation of parking barriers and access controls, signal output for traffic lights, and control of external and industrial gates. The new LC20 loop detector from Pepperl+Fuchs, combined with the induction loops installed in the ground, detects various vehicle combinations and quickly diagnoses and visualizes the data via a user-friendly app. Use the universal sensor system for modern vehicle detection.

 

 

 

Many applications in industries such as bulk materials handling or environmental and recycling technology depend on drives with high torques and mean speeds. SEW­EURODRIVE has the solution: a perfectly coordinated unit consisting of planetary gear units and standardized primary bevel-helical gear units.

 

 

 

The Marathon brand has a developed reputation for conservative motor designs and highly engineered products used in a vast array of commercial and industrial applications around the world.

 

 

 

The new IronHorse HBR series of helical bevel gearboxes combines the helical gearset with a bevel gearset to create an output that is perpendicular to the input. All HBR series gearboxes are hollow shaft output and accept double or single shafts. Dual and single output shaft kits are available. Helical gears offer a smoother, quieter operation than most other gear types.

 

 

 

DataMax Extreme Industrial Profinet cables are a two-pair shielded construction with 22AWG twisted pair conductors and 7/30 stranded tinned copper with color coded high-density polyethylene insulation.

DanfossWith more than one million square feet of exhibit and meeting space, the LEED Platinum-certified Enercare Centre at Exhibition Place in Toronto, Ontario, is the ninth-largest convention centre in North America. Located on the shores of Lake Ontario, the convection centre experiences the extreme weather that the Great Lakes region is known for – with temperatures ranging from -31°C (-24°F) to 40°C (105°F).

That puts a big burden on Exhibition Place’s HVAC equipment to keep the pace comfortable for more than 5.5 million visitors attending meetings, conventions, and exhibitions throughout the year.

Motor Feature


50 HP 1-to-3 Microgrid Power Source Single Phase Power Solutions introduces the 50 HP 1-to-3 Microgrid Power Source featuring a patented BELLE Motor with Written-Pole technology to deliver three-phase power from single-phase utility service. The 50 HP 1-to-3 can be used to operate a 25 HP motor three-phase motor, and multiple other motors up the remaining 25 HP of capacity. Ideal for areas without three-phase service, this revolutionary approach eliminates the high fuel and maintenance costs, and the pollution of fossil-fuel-powered Gen-Sets, while delivering superior power quality to that of a conventional phase converter.  It is far more cost effective than extending 3-phase power where it is not currently available.
