Motion Controller from FAULHABER with STO shutdown

Motion Controller from FAULHABER with STO shutdown

FAULHABER has brought to market a new series of Motion Controllers with redundant safety shutdown according to the STO principle (Safe Torque Off). The power supply to the motor is thereby immediately interrupted, preventing it from producing torque. The devices of the MC 5004 P STO series are thereby certified for operation up to safety integrity level SIL3 (IEC 61800-5-2) and up to performance level PL e (EN ISO 13849-1). 

"The new Motion Controllers ensure safety in the collaboration between human and machine, even in an Industry 4.0 environment," emphasises product manager...

A new performance class in inductive displacement measurements

A new performance class in inductive displacement measurements

The eddyNCDT 3060 inductive measurement system is based on eddy currents and enables fast, precise displacement measurements in industrial environments. More than 400 sensor models can be combined with the eddyNCDT 3060. Based on ease of use and smart signal processing, this non-contact system defines a new performance class in inductive displacement measurement.

In contrast to conventional inductive sensors, displacement sensors based on eddy currents stand out due to their high accuracy, bandwidth and temperature stability. Furthermore, this measuring principle enables measurements...

FLIR Systems Introduce Hyperspectral Imaging

FLIR Systems Introduce Hyperspectral Imaging

FLIR Systems is now able to offer hyperspectral imaging solutions that allow you to collect any waveband of spectral and spatial information in one high-speed video frame. Hyperspectral imaging systems collect both spectral and spatial information in one instantaneous video frame. This enhances the data stream while eliminating motion artefacts and maximizing signal-to-noise response. Combined with FLIR’s advanced infrared camera technologies, the systems can be optimized for the visible, NIR, SWIR, MWIR, or LWIR wavebands. Additionally, these systems can be designed to interface...

Power Analyzer and Data Acquisition System for Testing Electrical Drives

Power Analyzer and Data Acquisition System for Testing Electrical Drives

HBM eDrive Testing is the revolutionary system for testing electrical inverters and electrical machines. Mechanical signals (e.g., torque) and electrical signals (current, voltage) are acquired simultaneously, helping you to better understand the electric drive and its losses in minutes rather than days. This is important for the optimization of the drive as well as the increase in efficiency.

In contrast to conventional power analyzers, HBM eDrive Testing offers unique data acquisition and analysis capabilities in addition to power measurement.

The...
