The attractive panel mount unit is easy to install in industry standard 1/8 DIN cut-out dimensions. The electrically isolated common signal permits direct...
Carlo Gavazzi announced the launch of two new single phase AC DIN-rail switch mode power supply families, in housings that are among the most compact available. These new additions to Carlo Gavazzi’s extensive lineup of power supplies include features and price points that are well-suited to a wide variety of markets and applications.
The SPDM Series is a general purpose family with industry standard features in the most common output configurations. These smartly priced models are available in ranges from 30W up to 240W, in 12V and 24V outputs, and in housings that are up to 30% smaller than similar types on the market.
The SPDC Series offers the highest level of features and performance, in slim metal housings. They feature efficiency levels above 90%, built-in Power Factor Correction, and can provide 150% power boost for up to 3 seconds, making them ideal for applications with high inrush currents. With built-in parallel function and an output ready relay, the...
Thanks to hardware-based storage of certificates and encryption, the security of the industrial router mbNET is significantly improved. Both the data communication and the routers themselves are much less vulnerable. A security chip (secure element) serves as a secure safe for passwords, certificates and keys. These are neither readable nor manipulatable - not even by a hardware hack. The data from processes and applications, such as remote maintenance connections or the web interface, are stored in an encrypted container, each are protected against each other and to the outside. This protects the user data against spying and manipulation. The security of the router itself is ensured by a fixed programmed bootloader (Secure Boot), which only accepts signed firmware updates in accordance with the stored security certificate (Secure Firmware). A new firmware is only started when the check was successful - otherwise the router starts with...
New linear actuators:
The linear actuators from Nanotec are available in five sizes, from NEMA 8 to NEMA 23, and in three configurations: captive, non-captive and external linear. New additions are the LA28 and LA42 series in size NEMA 11, respectively NEMA 17.
The integrated threaded bushing has a long service life thanks to improved materials, and connecting the motor is made easy with the integrated connector. The new series are available with both trapezoidal lead screws and ACME threads.
The stepper motor-based linear actuators are particularly suitable for applications where linear positioning is required in small spaces. The different screw pitches provide high forces of up to 370 N and fast positioning. When used in combination with an encoder and Nanotec's closed-loop controllers, the position as well as the thrust can be monitored and controlled.
Small stepper motor with high power:
With the SC2818, Nanotec's range of products now includes...
SERCOS III (Ethernet) with Drive profile and synchronization for MAC motor® and ServoStep®
JVL Industri Elektronik A/S, one of the world’s leading producers in the field of integrated servo and stepper motors, announced another industrial Ethernet protocol for its integrated servo motors and integrated stepper motors: SERCOS.
Ready for Industry 4.0 and IIoT (Industrial IoT):
The JVL Sercos module is equipped with two Ethernet connectors and a built-in switch, enabling line and ring topology without any extra expensive hardware. The JVL Sercos module has several LEDs, enabling technicians and operators to get a quick status overview. There are also opto-isolated digital I/Os embedded in the module, enabling control of extra sensors etc. without external I/O modules. This minimizes the number of devices on the net and reduces cable costs.
All connectors are rugged M12 connectors suitable for the rough conditions in industrial environments....
COVAL’s MVG series vacuum grippers correspond perfectly to the expectations of integrators and users. Thanks to their high degree of modularity,
they provide the optimal handling solution for products of varied sizes, shapes and weights. With a single MVG gripper, easily integrated into the process, the user can carry out single or multiple grips of diverse products, both simply and safely.
The modular design, in standard variations, of the MVG series vacuum grippers gives it a high degree of flexibility with regards to format, gripping interface and vacuum pump, to respond perfectly to application requirements.Furthermore, to optimize production cycles and palletization planning, MVG grippers can be equipped with several independent gripping zones (multi-zone), ensuring multiple or staggered gripping/release points.
SITOP has been the heart of automation for 25 years, reliably supplying the right DC voltage to industries around the world. Our extensive portfolio of power supplies and add-on modules offers proven quality and reliability, maximum performance and maximum efficiency. And more besides: continuous development and constant innovation have already made SITOP the industrial power supply for Industrie 4.0.

In addition to engineering, this integration also pays off in day-to-day operation, e.g. through optimized monitoring and end-to-end diagnostics. And the SITOP library of modules and faceplates makes it possible to incorporate 24 V...
Stand-Alone Design By comparison, the Rittal SE 8 enclosure brings together the benefits of modular design and accessories with a price point that competes with unibody enclosures. Because the strength and interior mounting are handled by the roll-formed frame section of the enclosure, the SE 8 delivers improved durability and 30 percent more internal space than comparable unibody designs. In addition, the SE 8 is available in 16-gauge carbon or stainless steel, and features the standard, reversible TS 8 door to accommodate modifications over the lifecycle of the enclosure.
For larger control systems, the SE 8 is available in a double-door design starting at 39”. To ensure components remain protected, the single-door carbon-steel model is UL Type 12 and 3R with a Type 4 version available. The double-door design is currently rated at Type 12. The single-door stainless-steel model is UL Type 12, 3R with a Type 4X...
