Advantages of Constant Force Spring Applied to Carbon Brush

Advantages of Constant Force Spring Applied to Carbon Brush

Ming Tai Industrial Co., one of the leaders of total solution of steel strip spring, has developed a wide variety of constant force springs for carbon brush application.

In rail vehicles, carbon brush used to constant force springs are widely applied to alternators, auxiliary motors, blower motors, traction motors, slip ring and earth return current units. In wind turbine, it can be applied to slip ring, grounding systems, brush motors as well. 

Constant force spring dependably exert constant pressure to keeps carbon brush to work steady. It...

MP600 Limit Sensors - Detect 2 Positions within Microns

MP600 Limit Sensors - Detect 2 Positions within Microns

Microprecision presents a family of ultra-precise mechanical position sensors “made in Switzerland”. The new series of mechanical sensors MP600 detects two discrete positions in a single compact and pre-wired component, sealed to IP67.

Without measurable hysteresis, the two independent commutations (NC + NO) have a repeatable precision within just a few microns. The distance between them can be set specifically for each application, between 0.3mm and 1.5mm. The MP600 operates in a temperature range between -40 and +130 ° C.

IDS NXT Ocean – Grab, Label, Train, Run AI

IDS NXT Ocean – Grab, Label, Train, Run AI

Artificial intelligence opens up new fields of application for camera technology and image processing. It can be used, for example, to classify fruit varieties or to identify damaged parts (e.g. apples with marks or colour deviations). 

To cover all possible variances with classical image processing would be very time-consuming and costly. With artificial intelligence, however, these challenges can be solved in no time at all. With IDS NXT ocean, there is now a user-friendly complete solution for industrial applications.

New variants with ground choke

New variants with ground choke

SCHURTER extends its successful power entry module series C20F with versions including a ground line choke, designed for suppressing high-frequency interference on the ground conductor. Additionally, the new variants have a bigger X-capacitor for better symmetrical attenuation.

The C20F filter series combines an IEC C20 appliance inlet with a high-quality mains filter. The particularly wide metal flange makes contact with the housing surface over a large area, thus enabling optimum filtering and shielding.

Ground choke
