L.J. Star has announced the LumiStar series LED luminaires, suitable for process industry applications that require high intensity light that uses less energy and generates less heat. The series includes the LumiStar3000, LumiStar2000 and LumiStar1000.
Schneider Electric Canada has announced the launch of Schneider Electric Exchange, the world’s first cross-industry open ecosystem dedicated to solving real-world sustainability and efficiency challenges.
The Specialty Manufacturing Company has introduced the 845 series 3/8 in. five-way valve to solve complex flow control and diversion challenges across a broad range of media. In addition to the new 3/8 in. design, the valve can be customized with a variety of NPT and barbed ends.
Medium- and high-pressure fittings, valves, and components from Swagelok are designed to meet requirements of demanding applications. These include:
Ametek STC has introduced a line of temperature calibrators from Jofra Calibration. The dry-block and liquid bath portable temperature calibrators include 6 series with more than 25 models and temperature ranges from -100°C to 1205°C.
Alliance Sensors Group has expanded its sensor product offering using LVIT Technology by adding the LZ-19 series linear position sensors. The contactless devices are designed for use in factory automation or assembly equipment applications where space is a premium, as well as for external mounting on pneumatic cylinders to sense rod position.
The LVITs from Alliance Sensors are offered in nominal full-scale ranges from 2.5 to 750 mm with favourable stroke-to-body-length ratios, the company says.
The sensors have a 19 mm diameter stainless steel or optional aluminum body with a 1 m long cable for I/O connections.
The 6 mm diameter through-bore of series units gives adequate clearance for its 5.2 mm diameter PVDF-sheathed moving rod made of the same material as its housing.
The through-bore feature also means that these sensors are not subject to damage from typical mechanical overstroking.
This 80 GHz radar is designed specifically for measurements in challenging conditions specific to liquids. Available with a variety of options, the NCR-84 non-contact radar system from BinMaster is said to be a precise, reliable continuous level sensor for liquid inventory.
ABB’s Dodge expanded split taper sheave offering is said to allow users to simultaneously reduce costs and increase belted drive speed range options. Standardization on one readily available common groove profile results in reduced inventory carrying costs.
The DGST series pneumatic mini-slide from Festo is said to be extremely compact and affordable, with the smallest footprint on the market and an excellent price/performance ratio. The slide and yoke are manufactured as a single component, rather than two pieces joined together, thus ensuring very high rigidity and perpendicularity.
L.J. Star has introduced MetaClamp sanitary sight windows as a resource for sight ports and light ports in processing applications or inline visual flow indicators. The device is said to be the strongest, safest, most reliable sight glass on the market today.
