DCS SICK Motor Feedback System Rotary STS 1 400

The trend toward highly dynamic drive systems has clearly strengthened in recent years. The STS absolute motor feedback system ensures maximum flexibility and precision when measuring the position and speed of hollow shaft motors and direct drives. The non-contact magnetic measurement principle works without causing wear. A scalable measurement system, the STS adapts to different hollow shaft diameters of the application. In addition, the STS scores points with its particularly flat design and compact dimensions, making it the ideal solution for tight installation situations. Thanks to the standardized HIPERFACE® interface, the motor feedback system can be easily integrated into nearly any industrial environment.

It’s easy to install, easy to use, reliable and cost effective. Commander S is allegedly the first drive to come with an app interface as a standard feature at no extra cost. Marshal revolutionizes how the user interfaces with the drive covering commissioning, monitoring, diagnostics, and support.

 

 

DCS AutomationDirect Bimed Cabl Entry System and Cable Glands 1 400

AutomationDirect has added BPA series split-frame and BRM series solid-frame cable entry systems and cable glands from Bimed.  Cable entry systems provide safe installation into enclosures or electrical equipment, securing cables and providing strain relief while maintaining enclosure sealing requirements. The BPA series cable entry system allows cables to be installed through an enclosure or other bulkhead surface without requiring disassembly of connectors from pre-made or terminated cables and without compromising environmental protections.

 

 

DCS Nidec Servo Launches Motors with Can Bus 1 400

Nidec Servo Corporation announced recently that it has launched the world’s first* brushless DC motors equipped with Can-Bus, a communication function for vending machines’ product pay-out mechanisms. Can-Bus (Controller Area Network-Bus), a type of vehicle bus, or an internal communications network that interconnects devices inside a vehicle or a train, enables microcontrollers and devices to communicate with one another without a host computer. Though originally designed for multiplexed in-vehicle electrical wiring that is required to be noise-resistant, Can-Bus is now used widely for devices to communicate control information in such areas as robotics, which includes transportation equipment and machine tools.

 

 

DCS Wieland Electric Superior Safety Less Effort Decentralized Motor 1 400

Motors in conveyor systems need to be switched off safely, but the wiring and energy distribution involved is usually very complex, involving bulky cable trays, and complex distribution boxes. As a result, Wieland Electric has developed a new motor starter that reduces the complexity of installation and improves the safety of conveyor systems. The podis MS 5HP is a compact, robust and user-friendly drive component with an integrated STO (Safe Torque Off) function.

 

 

DCS ABB New Large Robots forEV Battery Production 1 400

ABB is adding two new robot families to its portfolio of large robots for complex manufacturing applications. Delivering enhanced speed, accuracy, flexibility, and a more robust design including integrated process cabling, ABB’s IRB 5710 and 5720 robots deliver increased productivity and enhanced performance with higher uptime for applications including electric vehicle (EV) manufacture, foundry, forging, rubber, plastics, and metal fabrication.   

 

 

DCS Rockwell Automation Provides Cost and Space Saving with New Bus Supply Solution 1 400

Industrial companies can now benefit from increased space savings and lower costs with a new non-regenerative bus supply. The bus supply is part of the Allen-Bradley PowerFlex® 755TM portfolio. It is a cost-effective solution for a common bus, when regenerative and low harmonics are not required.

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..
