The Simatic CPU 317TF-2DP controller from Siemens implements motion control, safety and standard tasks in one device. The controller utilises PLCopen-compatible motion control blocks and is suitable for coupled motion sequences of multiple axes.
Ultrasonic welding is used in packaging for many everyday items, including sealing containers, tubes and blister packs.
The WinAQMS mini data acquisition system (DAS) has been specifically designed for use in ambient air, meteorological and emission monitoring applications.
Gems Sensors & Controls has introduced the solid-state Electro-Optic Level Switch for high-temperature and high-pressure applications.
The AFH2 airflow hood is designed to measure volumetric airflow from diffusers, grilles and registers. The hood maintains a running average of measurements in the desired engineering units and provides the ability to manually record measurements with the manometer on a given time period.
The Liquiline CM442 digital, multiparameter controller and range of digital sensors provide a complete analyser and sampler platform. The device currently measures six different parameters: pH, ORP, conductivity, turbidity, nitrate and dissolved oxygen.
Bronkhorst High-Tech In-Flowcta mass flow meters are modular, ruggedly designed, IP65 rated, dust free and waterproof.
AMCI has released the IP67-rated stainless steel resolver transducer product line, which comes standard with either a ¼, 3/8 or 5/8″ stainless steel shaft and an oversized double-row sealed bearing. The input shaft in each of these stainless steel resolvers extends through the internal core of the resolver rotor windings. This one-piece rotor design eliminates internal coupling components and increases shaft strength and reliability.
The HART Communication Foundation has announced that the International Electrotechnical Commission has approved the WirelessHART specification as a full international standard (IEC 62591Ed. 1.0).
The Banner Engineering World-Beam QS18 adjustable-field foreground suppression sensors have been designed to detect objects regardless of colour, reflectivity, surface irregularities or background conditions.
The Memograph M CVM40 Optical measurement recorder has continuous measurement of UV absorption, colour, NIR absorption, turbidity and cell growth, and it also records other relevant process values such as flow, pressure and temperature.
Automated Motion Systems is offering the Eltra precision rectilinear potentiometers, which are suitable for automation applications where analog position feedback is required, in linear motion control systems. They are commonly used with pneumatic, electric or hydraulic actuators.
Environmental, quality and plant managers responsible for reporting gas emissions from stacks and chimneys per European CEN or MCERT directives will find that the rugged MT91 multi-point gas mass flowmeter from Fluid Components International (FCI) offers an approved solution.
The TE duct and immersion building automation temperature sensors can be used to monitor air or water temperature throughout a building management system or an air handler unit.
The XPCM10, from FGP Sensors, is a miniature pressure transducer designed for use in temperatures of up to 220°C. It incorporates the company’s SanShift technology that virtually eliminates zero shifts caused by installation torque.
