New compact soft starters and micro VFD drives have been added to the AutomationDirect motor controls lineup which encompasses simple manual controllers, motor contactors and starters, drives and soft starters. WEG SSW05 and SSW07 soft starters are compact, fully digital soft starters with state-of-the-art DSP (Digital Signal Processor) controller designed to provide great performance on motor starts and stops.

 

 

 

VFD-SC series VFD (Variable Frequency Drive) / Servo cable offers 4 conductors, available in 16 AWG to 10 AWG gauges, plus a foil-shielded signal pair. The VFD-SC series is the same high-quality cable as the standard VFD-C series; the addition of the shielded 16AWG signal pair allows the cable to be used with motors and drives requiring brake control or feedback from devices like temperature or position sensors.

 

 

 

Yokogawa Electric Corporation announced the release of Exaquantum R3.20, an enhanced version of its plant information management system (PIMS) software package in the OpreX Asset Operations and Optimization family. Exaquantum supports the digital transformation initiatives of customers in the process industries by gathering large volumes of plant data and transforming it into usable, high-value business information.

In the last quarter of 2019, FLIR Systems, Inc. announced an initiative to honor and support United States (U.S.) military veterans. As part of its FLIR HERO Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy, the company plans to double the percent of verified veterans employed at the company by the end of 2022. Also, through the FLIR TradeForce Program, it will offer free introductory-level infrared training and certification for U.S. military veterans transitioning to a skilled trade.

 

 

 

HARTING is taking the next step in the direction of the mobility concepts of tomorrow with the Rinspeed "metroSNAP". Whether passenger transport or freight logistics, the metroSNAP can be used in highly versatile manner. The HARTING module helps the driver use the vehicle for a wide range of tasks in a fast, flexible manner. Like its predecessors -- the "SNAP" and "microSNAP" -- the vehicle is divided into two elements. On the one hand, there is the Skateboard that serves as an optimised electric vehicle, and on the other there is the “Pod”, which can be switched out in flexible manner to accommodate different tasks.

 

 

 

Size matters, and in the world of industrial automation, providing exceptional performance in a highly compact package can be an enormous advantage. With this in mind, encoder manufacturer POSITAL has unveiled a fully functional prototype of their new miniature multi-turn kit encoder for integrated motor feedback. With a diameter of only 22 mm and a height of 23 mm (0.87”/0.9”), the new device is the world’s smallest multi-turn kit.

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

The FLIR A310 is a fixed-mounted thermal imaging cameras that can be installed almost anywhere to monitor your critical equipment and other valuable assets. The camera can safeguard your plant and measure temperature differences to assess the criticality of a given situation. This allows you to see problems before they become costly failures, preventing downtime and enhancing worker safety.

 

 

 

Following the successful launch of the second generation AKM2G servo motors, KOLLMORGEN is now expanding its new range for applications in the low voltage range. The specialist in servo drive technology and Motion Control is responding to increased demand for AKM2G motors for AGVsrobotics, and medical technology. Powerful compact motors for supply voltages of 24, 48, 72 and 96 V DC are increasingly in demand here.

Cost Saving With VFDBy Elmir Rahimpour, Former Automation & Integration Specialist, WEG Canada

In conventional applications, pumps or fan should be run at full speed, then pressure or flow should be controlled with a control valves hence some energy will be wasted when you throttling control valves. One of the major usages of VFD is cost saving through energy saving.

But we want to look from different angle of cost saving which is capital saving through removing some instrumentation and control valves and utilize VFD with built-in PLC.
