A new line of modular extended range proximity sensors offers 1.5 to 2 times the sensing distance of standard sensing range units. The extended range allows users to mount the devices further away from tooling and work pieces, eliminating collisions and subsequent damage to sensors.
This year's winners of Product Design and Development's Ninth Annual Engineering Awards made engineering design filled with creativity, innovation, and service to society. By Jennifer M.
Version 5 of Accolade product development software contains features tailored for companies in the food and beverage, paper products, and specialty chemical industries.
With the Mercury SmartSignal line of programmable encoders, you can fine-tune a motion loop by setting the resolution in integer steps from x4 to x4096. Maximum linear resolution is 5 nm and maximum rotary resolution is 67.1 million counters per revolution.
A line of fully enclosed, UL listed, and CSA approved switching power supplies offers voltages from 5 to 48 Vdc at 1.6 to 10 A. The line spans four families, 45W, 75W, 120W, and 240W, and features 12 DIN rail mounted models measuring 2.19 to 3.94 in. along the rail.
A line of 12-V fixed-output dc-to-ac inverters, each just 6.5 mm across and 35.5 mm long, powers cold-cathode, hot-cathode, and ultraviolet fluorescent lamps as small as 2-by-25-mm or as large as 5-by-150 mm. Drawing just 150 mA, these "pencil" inverters generate 800-V output at 4 mA and 105 kHz.
MTA-50 IDC connectors shrink contact centerlines down to 0.05 in. and come in versions having two to 28 contact positions. To accommodate tight positional tolerances, contacts are staggered from row to row.
A line of viscous mounts provides stability and damping for cab loads ranging from 250 to more than 1,000 kg. The units conform to environmental demands and work even when natural roll, bounce, and pitch frequencies are different.
The Tempus-HS 400 Series 2-mm backplane connector is designed as a 100-ohm differential-pair signal transmission line that can handle data rates up to 10 Gbits/sec in a large backplane. The connector features a 0.
A line of snap action switches that meet military specifications for high shock and vibration environments offers models in a wide variety of configurations and electrical ratings.
Lightweight and free-rolling, members of the 1700 Universal Roller Series of non-motorized rollers for gravity conveyor applications come with nylon housed commercial-grade ball bearings to help meet OSHA's 85-dB noise standard. Available with 1.9, 2.5, 3.15, and 3.5 in.
The Model 2200-245-130 Kiss No-Drip is an airless flat-spray valve designed to eliminate problems created by the orientation of the spray nozzle. As such, it promises to deliver precise, repeatable patterns when spraying sealants, adhesives, and lubricants.
A new anti-tamper lock limits the operation of valves and actuators to authorized individuals, thus reducing the risk of human error or deliberate tampering.
Custom lead screws for motion control and actuation in such automotive applications as the positioning of power seats, pedals, multimedia displays, dashboards, sunroofs, and window shades are said to offer quiet, vibration-free motion with little or no drag.
Permabond F246 is a two-part, no-mix, surface-activated structural acrylic adhesive aimed for road sign assembly. Designed to replace rivets when joining the sign to a stiffener, the adhesive is said to improve appearance, maintain flexibility, and withstand harsh outdoor climates.
