All-Test Pro has introduced four Motor Circuit Analysis motor testing products. All-Test Pro 7 Professional, All-Test Pro 7, All-Test Pro 34 and MCA Software Suite. The instruments are designed to provide a total view into the condition of an electric motor, transformer, or generator.
Endress+Hauser has introduced a new generation of ISFET sensors made with PEEK (polyetheretherketone) to improve performance in glass-free pH measurement. With the new design, the ISFET sensors — Memosens CPS47D, CPS77D and CPS97D — are said to offer consistent accuracy, maximum product safety, and up to six times greater clean in place (CIP) stability than the previous generation of ISFET sensors.
To further increase connectivity options in ultra-compact PC Control hardware, Beckhoff Automation has introduced the new C6032 Industrial PC (IPC). With dimensions of 129 x 133 x 104 mm, the IPC enhances the scalability of the PC-based controller portfolio from the company.
The Beckhoff Automation unit adds two slots for PCIe Compact modules to the C6030 single-board IPC, which is comparable in terms of computing power, to accommodate modular interfaces and functional extensions.
With the use of compact PCIe modules, the C6032 can be optimally adapted to the unique requirements of individual applications.
The first available PCIe modules include:
- 2 x Gbit Ethernet; 2 x USB 3.0; 2 x RS232; and
- 1 x CP-Link 4 (for connection to Beckhoff displays).
Controllers are suitable for an operating temperature range of up to 55ºC.
The AutomationDirect line of sensors now includes capacitive proximity sensors with potentiometer adjustment for sensitivity. Capacitive proximity sensors allow sensing of metal and non-metal objects through insulating materials such as wood or plastic and are often used to sense fill levels of liquids or powders.
The 1259 pressure gauge from Ashcroft is now available with the patented PLUS! Performance option. The feature dampens pointer flutter without the need for traditional liquid fill.
No. 992 is an electrically-heated, 260ºC two-zone belt conveyor oven from Grieve, currently used for drying and curing ceramic cement at a customer facility. The 48 KW heater (24 KW per zone) are installed in Nichrome wire elements to heat the oven chamber, while 4000 CFM (2000 CFM in each zone) are provided by two 2-HP recirculating blowers with vertical downward airflow to the workload.
MS2 regulators from Festo are not only the smallest yet in the MS-Series of standard service units, but also the smallest and lightest regulators on the market, the company says.
Hot tap digital flowmeters from Exair allow installation when compressed air piping is under pressure. By eliminating the need to isolate and remove pressure from the pipe, these compressed air flowmeters reduce installation time while maintaining safety.
Endress+Hauser is offering two universal, device configuration tablet PCs said to provide fast, efficient one-click mobile device configuration and plant asset management in hazardous environments. With the touch-enabled Field Xpert tablet PCs – model SMT77 for Cl. 1 Div. 1 and SMT70 for Cl. 1 Div. 2 – maintenance staff can manage virtually all digitally communicating Endress+Hauser and other field instruments throughout their entire life cycle.
Liquid line T-Traps introduced by Industrial Magnetics, Inc., remove unwanted ferrous and work-hardened stainless contaminants from processing lines. Units capture fine ferrous particles that are created by wear of upstream processing equipment and often pass undetected through electronic metal detectors.
