A new line of fiber-optic switching devices incorporates a combination of glass and plastic. The glass and plastic design creates optical devices that increase design flexibility and enable a short focus length. They can also be fabricated at a high speed.
A line of silicone foam gaskets and cushioning pads is supplied in custom die cut, water jet cut, and slit-to-width configurations. The silicone foam is produced from new liquid silicone rubber technology, and many grades are flame-retardant meeting UL94V-0 and UL94HF-1 standards.
The CL-408 module is designed to put operators in control of high power components in off-road equipment. It enables joysticks and other control devices to interface with machine bidirectional servos, valves, and solenoids. Designers can configure the CL-408 as a slave module in a CAN system.
New rotary tap switches are designed to support a variety of industrial applications. Available in molded- and fabricated-base designs, these heavy-duty units can be configured for either manual or motor operation.
The SMRF 5025S is a new surface-mount inductor that has high-performance shielding, allowing electronic components to be mounted closer together on circuit boards in RF applications.
The Aries Series of high-power, compact digital servo drives has a "plug-in and spin" design and requires no setup. Users simply attach a "smart encoder" motor, and the drive automatically configures. Aries units are available in four versions 100, 200, 400, and 750 W.
The TC7 Series of PLCs features board-type units that are available in models as small as 90 x 60 mm. The PLCs can be configured into a variety of equipment. Thermistor inputs (two inputs come standard) make the TC7 suitable for temperature-controlled appliances and equipment.
A new series of in-line diagnostic tees has been designed to complement electronic diagnostic products from mechanical pressure and temperature-sensing equipment manufacturers.
The Air Champ VC500 caliper brake is a single-post, spring-actuated unit that provides high braking torque and works with discs of various sizes. It has a compact footprint and is completely assembled and ready to install.
Six new Molykote high-performance bearing greases are suitable for electrical motors, fan bearings, rail cars, elevators, construction machines, hot rolling mills, central locking systems, and window lifters.
This new Balogh radio frequency identification (RFID) system is for use in all general-purpose industrial applications. It boasts compact passive TAGs (no battery required) that have a Read/Write memory of 96 bytes.
Three new hardened material options are offered for high-wear stationary components on the Abrasive Liquid Pumps in order to extend pump service life. The pump casing and head are now available in vitek-hardened cast iron, austempered ductile iron, and tungsten carbide cast iron.
ThermoFilm H153U is a heat-reactive thermosetting adhesive transfer film that is designed for bonding, laminating, mounting, and gasketing applications. An unsupported nitrile phenolic transfer film, it boasts high bond strength. Once cured, it offers resistance to solvents, plasticizers, and heat.
These remote in-line flow sensors are designed to provide machine builders with solutions for flow detection in limited space applications. The new sensors feature a compact housing, with stainless steel wetted parts that are available with a 4 or 10 mm inner diameter.
The WaveRunner 6000 Series of digital oscilloscopes (DSOs) features five models covering the bandwidth range from 350 MHz to 2 GHz. These DSOs boast advanced signal capture technology and can be used by design/test engineers in the development and troubleshooting of typical circuit problems.
