DCS HPS Drive Isolation Transformers from Automation Direct 1 400

AutomationDirect has added drive isolation transformers from Hammond Power Solutions to their growing lineup of transformers. Their rugged design allows them to withstand the mechanical stresses, voltage distortions, and heating associated with motor drives. 

 

 

DCS Integrate DC Devices into Work Area with AC Power Banner 1 400

The new SPS30 AC/DC In-Line Power Converter is a compact, cost-effective device that makes it easy to connect sensors and indicators that use DC power to a production line using AC. The SPS30 accepts 100­­­–240 V AC at its input and converts that voltage to 24 V DC at its output. 

 

 

DCS New Sub Compact Light Weight Pressure Sensor from Gems Sensors 1 400

At less than 25mm length (+ lead-wires) and 13mm diameter our new pressure sensor “packs a punch” offering the same robust performance as similar pressure sensors at a quarter of the size. Common applications include diversified industrial, professional hand tools, fire rescue, and construction.

 

 

DCS Mersen Launches Non Indicating Class RK Fuse Series 1 400

Mersen is pleased to announce non-indicating versions of its popular A2D and A6D Series Class RK1 fuses. With this introduction, the Class RK1 Time Delay fuse series now offers a full range of ampere ratings between 8-600A in both indicating and non-indicating categories. 

 

 

DCS Littlefuse ITV4030 Battery Protectors 1 400

Littelfuse Inc., an industrial technology manufacturing company empowering a sustainable, connected, and safer world, recently announced the new ITV4030, a series of 22 amp, three-terminal, surface-mountable Li-ion battery protectors. These 4.0 x 3.0 mm devices protect battery packs against overcurrent and overcharging (overvoltage) conditions. The innovative design uses embedded fuse and heater elements that provide fast response and reliable performance to interrupt the charging or discharging circuit before the battery pack becomes overcharged or overheated.

 

 

DCS Additional Safety Mats Edges and Bumpers from AutomationDirect 1 400

AutomationDirect has added additional safety mats, edges, and bumpers from ASO Safety Solutions. These safety products protect people and machinery from harm. Mats detect the presence of personnel on horizontal surfaces (usually the floor), edges can be used on any surface, usually near possible crushing or shearing points, and bumpers are used in applications involving vehicles or other moving equipment.

 

 

MC Festos New Const Effective One Way Flow Valve 1 400

Festo’s new manually adjustable VFOE meets all the criteria users are seeking in a one-way flow control valve for either supply or exhaust air in standard industrial applications. With its compact, polymer body design, the VFOE is both smaller and up to 50% lighter than comparable metal-bodied flow control valves. That polymer difference and customized manufacturing allow Festo to offer VFOE as a low-cost option which doesn’t sacrifice Festo’s renowned quality.

 

 

DCS Emersons New Emergency Shutdown Discrete Valve Controller 1 400

Recently, Emerson introduced the TopWorxTM DX PST with HART® 7. Units provide valuable valve data and diagnostic information, enabling the digital transformation of process applications. The new DX PST integrates seamlessly with existing valves and control systems, giving operators access to critical valve data, trends, and diagnostics that can be used to predict and schedule maintenance.

 

 

DCS New Pioneer Pump Electricpak Delivers Stramline Ordering 1 400

Franklin Electric Co., Inc.brand Pioneer Pump® announces the launch of the ElectricPAK™, a modular offering of electric-driven pump packages that helps users get a pump and motor configuration onsite more quickly and efficiently than custom-built units. The new line of pump packages has been engineered from the ground up to offer a fully streamlined experience for both owners and operators.

 

 

DCS reliable Object Recognition w Optical Sensors PILZ 1 400

Optical sensors detect an object by emitting light beams, which are reflected by the material. In this way, reliable object detection can also be guaranteed for shiny or reflective objects. The sensors do not fulfil a safety function. However, they do emit a switching signal, which is evaluated by safe control technology from Pilz, such as the small controller PNOZmulti 2 or the modular safety relay myPNOZ. For example, optical sensors are used in solutions for packaging machines for safe monitoring of carton infeed. The solution is TÜV-SÜD-certified for PL d / SIL 2.

DCS HELUKABEL Critical Keys to Selecting Right Cable Manufacturer 1 400

As we began 2022, global material shortages and rapidly increasing costs have now become the new reality. The types of materials that have suddenly become difficult to procure are wide-ranging and include computer chips for automotive manufacturing, wood for new construction, and electrical components – just to name a few.

These shortages have created great uncertainty, which is reflected in a recent poll of contractors in the U.S. by the Chamber of Commerce. They reported:

  • •83% are experiencing product delays.
  • •71% are struggling to meet schedule requirements.
  • •68% are experiencing delays expected into 2023.
  • •58% are putting in higher bids on projects.
  • •53% are saying major project shutdowns/delays are a top concern.
  • •41% are saying material shortages continue.
  • •39% are turning down work opportunities.

One of the major material components that affect the cost and availability of wire and cable is copper. This widely used metal, which traditionally has been a volatile commodity, has been steadily increasing in price, which is due to several supply and demand issues.

Omron Whitepaper - MVRC: Mark, Verify, Read and Communicate

Utopias are common in fiction, from Plato’s The Republic to The Federation in Star Trek. For manufacturers, a world without unplanned downtime would be the perfect utopia. The question is, is abolishing unplanned downtime a far-fetched dream, or is it closer than we think? Here, Jonathan Wilkins, marketing director of obsolete industrial equipment supplier, EU Automation shares his vision for a downtime free age.

According to research by Oneserve, machine downtime is costing British manufacturers over £180 billion a year. Unplanned downtime halts production, but can also lead to wasted raw materials or damage to the system itself – amplifying the cost beyond loss of production. Further research conducted by GE Digital found that 70 per cent of companies lack full awareness of when equipment is due for maintenance, upgrade or repair..
