Bent-axis hydraulic motors from the A2FM 70 series feature a housing that is 26% shorter than previous models and lighter by 38%, with the same pressure ranges and ratings as the larger A2FM 61 series. With a 40° bent axis, they target mobile working equipment and complement the company’s medium pressure pumps. With 350-, 450- and 500-bar pressure levels and displacement options of 80, 90, and 107 cm3, the motors can be used in a range of different applications. They reach speeds up to 5,000 rpm and can be used in both open and closed circuits.

The new additions to the CLICK line of standard PLCs offer 3 to 10 times faster processing than the existing PLCs and include Ethernet basic. Upward compatible with other CLICK units, they are available with eight 24- and 120-Vac input points, and 6 DC or relay outputs. They include a calendar/real time clock and battery backup for the internal SRAM. The Ethernet capabilities enable run-time edits so that the ladder project can be downloaded while the CLICK PLC keeps running. They are configured with easy-to-run programming software which is available for free download.

The FT1A Touch 14 I/O is a new addition to the FT1A Touch series of programmable-logic-controllers (PLCs). Of the 14 I/O, eight are discrete inputs that can be configured as analog, four are discrete outputs, and two are analog outputs. Furthermore, it can be configured with 24, 40, or 48 I/O FT1A controllers acting as remote I/O slaves to provide up to 158 discrete or analog inputs and outputs. It also comes with PID control, Ethernet communications, and a built-in 3.8-in. touchscreen HMI. The two-point analog inputs accept both 4- to 20-mA and 0- to 10-Vdc signals, while the outputs can also be configured to 4 to 20 mA or 0 to 10 Vdc. An RTD/thermocouple analog-input module is also available, along with analog expansion adapters with either two inputs or two outputs.

The GN 1130 series of steel lifting pins feature fast and easy installment conformable to many requirements for carrier elements. Locking balls are activated via an aluminum push button for removal and insertion of the load pin into a bore hole with d1-H11 tolerance. The ball-load pin may be set to move freely by the desired angle of up to 360°, and a safety flange can be activated by rotating the shackle by 180°. A versatile alternative to other lifting gear such as load rings, its stud and shackle are constructed out of heat-treated, manganese-phosphated steel, and the spring is made of stainless steel. It is capable of holding nominal loads from 1.5 to 4.8 kN.

The CSF-2UP gear unit from the CSF mini-series provides zero backlash in applications that require high torque in a compact space. It features a flat configuration and large cross-roller bearing at its output flange for direct mounting of the load. In addition, the cross-roller bearing has high-moment stiffness, good axial and radial run-out characteristics, and a high load capacity for repeatable positioning. Gear ratios of 30:1, 50:1, 100:1 are available.

The Class 6 Ethernet/IP SmartMotor is available in standard, high pole count, and hybrid versions. Featuring dual-port Ethernet, no switches or hubs are required, and a motor, encoder, amplifier, and controller are included. It supports industrial Ethernet including EtherCAT, PROFIBUS, and EtherNet/IP, and features a high-speed processor with data rates as fast as 1 ms. Optional redundant cabling is possible via a device level ring (DLR). Programming, configuring, and live diagnostics may also be executed through a USB. Specific add-on instructions may be programmed using an Allen Bradley PLC to reduce development time and increase speed to market.

The Gap Filler 3500LV is a two-part material that cures at room temperature. It may be cured faster at a higher heat. It delivers thermal conductivity of 3.5 W/m-K with the mechanical properties of silicone. Its low volatile content is controlled lot-to-lot to ensure minimal outgassing. It especially targets transparent lamps and applications in optics because it minimizes fogging on the lens. Once cured, it is a soft material that offers protection from shock and vibration. It is especially suited for filling tiny gaps with zero shrinkage to ensure reliability for heat management in thermal interfaces.
