Product News LIVE@ Servo

Product News LIVE@ Servo inverter with secured remote maintenance Stöber goes on technically and legally secured paths in remote maintenance with the Posidyn SDS 5000 servo inverter: all data and processes are the same as for on-site access. Personal and system safety are very important. Extensive port releases that give reasons for concerns about safety are not necessary, since only the responsible employee on site at the converter or PLC can release remote maintenance. After completion of the maintenance work, system access is no longer possible. Thus, no safety gap in the operator’s system results. Ball bearing housing units ready for installation Timken has introduced a product line of ball bearing housing units within its UC series. The metric and imperial housing units for standard loads are available ready for installation in five different designs. The site range comprises shaft diameters from 12 to 90 mm, with the most common sizes available ex stock immediately. The output of the units is validated in internal inspections. Service engineers of the manufacturer make extended maintenance cycles and maximum operating times for the facilities possible. Electrical motors meet efficiency standards early Bauer Gear Motor has developed permanent magnet synchronous motors with series S that are approved as speed-controlled motors of efficiency class IE4 for potentially explosive areas. The IE3 motors from the manufacturer between 0.75 kW and below 7.5 kW already comply with the provisions applicable from January 2017 onwards. The new installation motors of the performance range from 7.5 kW to 375 kW must either be classified in IE3 now or equipped with a frequency converter as IE2. Standard EN50598-2 relocates the focus from the individual component to the efficiency of the entire drive system. The average range is IES1. Systems that do not reach the minimum value for IES 1 are assigned class IES0. Systems with values from 20 % above IES1 onwards are classified as IES2. All electro motors by Bauer Gear Motor are at least IES1-compliant. Protocol converters with eight integrated I/Os Deutschmann Automation introduced the Unigate CL protocol converter models that can be fitted with eight integrated, freely configurable I/O interfaces. The housing size stays the same.The I/Os are provided as plug-in connections on top the housing. The converters for DIN rail installation enable the integration of existing devices in diverse fieldbus and Ethernet environments. The models additionally support direct and application-specific control of actuators, sensors, and signaling devices – external I/Os from other manufacturers are no longer required. The integrated I/Os are configured via the same script that is the basis of all Deutschmann gateways, handling the conversion of the terminal device protocol to the respective fieldbus or Ethernet protocol. Users are free to define each I/O as an input or output, and to apply their individual switching logic in associating I/Os with each other. 30 MDA Technologies 2/2015

ROTARY TORQUE TRANSDUCERS Intelligent continuous chain monitoring system Iwis has developed a new monitoring system for measuring chain elongation. The patented CCM (Chain Condition Monitoring) system can be integrated in numerous chain applications and retrofitted in existing plants and machines without the need for special add-on components for the chain. The device determines the wear in a chain drive and notifies maintenance personnel where and when preventive maintenance is required. Operating state and wear status are indicated by LEDs and readings can be transmitted to a computer through USB and viewed with a special interface. The CCM system can be used independently of chain speed. Depending on the chain size, possible chain speeds range from 0.02 m/s to over 15 m/s. The device has protection class IP67 and can be used under normal environmental conditions and at temperatures from 0 to 60 °C. Non-Contact Digital Technology High Resolution High Accuracy High Reliability Integral Electronics Voltage & Current Outputs USB, RS232 & CANbus Outputs Suitable for OEM applications WIRELESS LOAD SENSORS Wireless, easy to install/remove Transmits data up to a distance of 100M Transmits data at up to 10 times a second Internal Memory for up to 280 hours of data 11 to 28V external supply chargeable Connect to PC via USB Flexible automatic shutdown to conserve battery Dual ruggedised internal antennas FCC Part 15 SENSOR TECHNOLOGY SAWS Apollo Park, Ironstone Lane, Wroxton, Banbury, OX15 6AY.

RK Duoline Clean is available with and without vacuum connection in sizes 60 and 80, either with a ball thread drive or a toothed belt of polyurethane. They all have cover tapes of stainless steel. If the axis is applied with a vacuum connection, the particle emission will further reduce. The eight total versions have been tested according to EN ISO 14644-1 and are certified Sensor-Technology.indd 1 09.03.2015 08:27:29 Direct Drives Torque motors up to 30,000 Nm – Rotary tables – Axis drives – Extruder machines … for clean rooms in the classes 1 to 5. Among others, they can be used in the semi-conductor industry, photovoltaics, microelectronics, aviation and aerospace technology or the automotive industry. ate antriebstechnik und entwicklungs gmbh Brandenburger Straße 10 • D-88299 Leutkirch im Allgäu MDA Technologies 2/2015 31 ATE_en.indd 1 19.02.2015 09:12:25
