Products en Stainless-Steel Pressure Sensors Handle up to 6000 psi <div class="node-body article-body"><p>The P8211, P8271, and P8281 series of pressure sensors are designed for measurements in gas, vapor, liquid, and dust. Developed by Minco, the sensors can be set to measure gauge or absolute pressures in environments with pressures ranging from 15 to 6000 psi. They produce a 4- to 20-mA analog output and require a supply between 12 and 30 VDC. Accuracy is 0.15% or 0.50% for P8211, while long-term stability for the sensors is 0.15% URL/year.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Products Sensors Thu, 26 Feb 2015 19:32:00 +0000 46851 at Guide Simplifies EMI/RFI Shielding Product Selection <div class="node-body article-body"><p>To help its customers find products with characteristics that best match their EMI/RFI shielding applications, Tech-Etch now offers a comparative <em>Shielding Product Guide</em>.

The holders are rugged in vibrational and high shock environments, and batteries may be inserted into the holders using pick-and-place machinery or vacuums. Holders are polarized and have dual-spring, gold-plated phosphor bronze contacts in a glass-filled LCP UL 94V-0 base. They come in bulk (Part #1058) or on tape and reel (Part #1058TR). The battery holder is ISO-9001:2008-certified as well as RoHS- and REACH-compliant.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Products Batteries/Power Supplies Thu, 26 Feb 2015 17:14:00 +0000 46831 at Linear Rail Systems Handle Heavy Cantilever, Normal Loading <div class="node-body article-body"><p align="left">Three new sizes of BGS linear rail systems for brushless linear DC motors (BLDCs) were added to the Haydon-Kerk 24-Hour Express Store. The single- or double-stacked BGS04, BGS06, and BGS08 linear rails come in sizes 11, 17, and 23. Each rail is designed with a motorized external linear actuator and recirculating ball rail system to withstand heavy normal and cantilevered loading while maintaining repeatability and accuracy. Design loads can range from 22 to 225 lb and stroke length ranges from 4 to 12 in.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Products Tue, 24 Feb 2015 15:42:00 +0000 46701 at Seal and Trim Products Approved as Recognized Components <div class="node-body article-body"><p><span style="font-size: 12.8000001907349px;">Seal-Fast Door Seals and Trim-Fast Edge Trim are now Recognized Components, approved by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) for EPDM gasket materials under UL50 and UL50E standards. Designed by Device Technologies (DTi), they help protect critical equipment from dust, moisture, and high temperature variations.&nbsp; Such equipment includes telco switches, data-center racks and chassis, and routers under NEMA standards.

It could lead to major changes for circuitry in aerospace, automotive engines, brakes and transmissions, and downhole pumps for oil and gas drilling. According to DuPont, the coverfilm material is breaking records for thermal resistance in flexible circuits, withstanding temperatures of up to 225˚C.</span></p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Products Materials Mon, 23 Feb 2015 19:14:00 +0000 46681 at FAST Integrates Robots into Automation Equipment <div class="node-body article-body"><p>Lenze&rsquo;s FAST application toolbox now includes modular robotic software with built-in kinematic systems to smoothly and easily integrate robots into machine automation and control designs. Kinematic modules are available for Delta2, Delta3, buckling arm, SCARA robots, and different types of gantry robots. Modules can be programmed using parametrization. Therefore, pick-and-place operations are precise, and robot programming doesn&rsquo;t require knowledge of robot kinematics.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Products Technologies Thu, 19 Feb 2015 16:15:00 +0000 46531 at BHS Brushless Motors Target Sensitive Dental Apps <div class="node-body article-body"><p>According to Micromo, its compact Series 2057 BHS brushless linear motors are fast and resistant to vibrations and overheating. The motors will be used to power small hand-pieces for sensitive applications such as dentistry and surgery. Speeds up to 40,000 rpm can be controlled by the user, and the motors will withstand intermittent overload for short-term dynamic applications. Preloaded ball bearings allow for maximum 22 N radial loading and 75 N axial loading. Replacement of the front bearing extends the service life of the motor.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Products Motors/Drives Thu, 12 Feb 2015 16:51:00 +0000 46401 at Motion Control “Right there and on the Spot” for Decentralized Controllers <div class="node-body article-body"><p>An iSA decentralized controller delivers local real-time motion control&mdash;it can synchronize motion axes and cross-communication over several levels.
