The motorized size changeover of machine spindles or machine axes is now being implemented in various ways. The solutions to this are often relatively rudimentary and result in the fact that no handwheel or crank is rotated, with one or more buttons being pressed instead. Whether this meets the requirements of a smart process chain or Industry 4.0 is questionable. Intelligent positioning drives can be an efficient solution in such a case.
To supplement their range of devices to measure lengths, angles, rotational speed and inclines, SIKO GmbH, has released an all-new set of distance sensors covering a wealth of applications. Both the LA170 and LA060 sensors measure distances visually and are primarily used in automation processes.
ELIS, manufacturer and supplier of flow meters, has launched a battery-powered ultrasonic water meter intended for measuring flow rate instantaneously and pressure and consumption in water piping (standard EN 14154 for water works), water distribution systems and other industrial applications.
Siko’s new wire-actuated encoder SG42, with a robust design and redundant sensor system for measuring 4000 mm length.
Monitran’s MTN/VM220, a compact, handheld meter for measuring vibration levels. It is a rechargeable, portable instrument designed to operate with a constant current accelerometer to provide accurate vibration measurements. Conforming to ISO10816-3, the MTN/VM220 is engineered to detecting the early signs of component wear or failure in pumps, motors, gearboxes and other mechanical assemblies.
Michell Instrument has announced the unveiling of the MDM25, a new portable relative humidity hygrometer, which replaces their model DM509.
