Motion control looks set to keep running for many years

Industrial control is a highly developed field that advances year on year as the underlying technology advances. But will it and all its specialist sub-sets continue to thrive? Gerard Bush, a motion specialist with INMOCO, offers his opinion.

IP66 stainless steel fanless 15, 19 and 21.5 inch PanelPC family

The extensive range of PanelPCs available from BVM Limited has been augmented with two new models, designed for use in harsh environments.  The robust anti-corrosion stainless steel units have resistive touch screens and fully sealed to IP66, enabling them to be used in areas such as food preparation where they can safely be washed down during routine cleaning. Similarly, the IP66 sealing means that they can also be used in aggressive environments where dust and dirt are frequently present. All models feature M12 metal IP68 interface connectors and IP67 power and I/O connectors to preserve the integrity of the environmental sealing. Three units, based on Ivy Bridge i3/i5/i7 or Celeron processors, the HM65 chipset and HD 4000 graphics are designated the WTP-9A66 versions, with up to 16 GB of 1600 MHz DRAM available. The two lower power WTP-8B66 units are based on the Celeron J1900 quad core processors with up to 8 GB of 1333 MHz DRAM and are available in the 15 and 19 inch screen sizes.

Silicone X-Treme Tape

Capable of withstanding extremes in temperature, pressure and voltage, X-Treme Tape is a self-fusing insulating and repair wrap, which forms an air and water-tight stretch seal by sticking only to itself by means of a cross-linked polymer bond. The tape features the highest bond strength in the industry along with high tensile and dielectric strengths.

Leuze Electronic – Really powerful!

With optical sensors, sometimes the pure performance matters most of all

The AC/DC SR 49C all-voltage sensors, with relay and MOSFET outputs for high switching power, have been completely optimized for flexible usage. They are suitable for outdoor deployment and, thanks to their high function reserves, for operating ranges up to 120 m without any operational safety limitations. Thus, to put it succinctly, you could say about these tough sensors: reliability is the prime derivation of high performance.

The NEW generation of ELITE products

For many years iwis’ ELITE brand of roller chain has been used by major OE manufacturers and End users and is seen as a critical component to countless applications where consistent quality and value for money are of paramount importance.
