No chance of getting locked-in with Euchner’s new safety switch CTP-BI
• Transponder-coded safety switch with guard locking and guard lock monitoring
• Bistable locking function prevents people becoming locked inside the danger area
The CTP‑BI is based on the proven principle of the safety switch CTP and has an additional bistable locking function. In normal operation the guard locking is controlled via an input signal. When the operating voltage is switched off, the guard locking is maintained in its current position. This means that the safeguarded door remains either locked or unlocked, regardless of locking principle, until power is reapplied. The bistable guard locking solenoid therefore provides an additional measure of prevention of an individual becoming accidentally locked inside a guard locked door, whether for service, maintenance, or cleaning. The bistable function of the solenoid also prevents the deactivation of guard locking if there is a...

ROBUST AND LOW COST INCLINOMETERS:
POSITAL is expanding their TILTIX family of inclinometers with a new line of lower cost, lower resolution instruments. These new tilt sensors will have an accuracy of ±0.5° and a resolution of 0.01°. (By comparison, current models have an accuracy of 0.1°.) For many slope or tilt monitoring applications in cranes, construction equipment, agricultural machinery and water handling...
Getting started – even when things are tight SIRIUS 3RM1 Motor Starters
The new SIRIUS 3RM1 Motor Starters are designed for installation in control cabinets and require minimal space: They combine the functionality of contactors and overload relays in a width of just 22.5mm. In addition, thanks to their use of hybrid switching technology, they have all the benefits of relay and semiconductor technology in a single device, which increases their cost-effectiveness. The motor starters make your work easier, offering easy adjustment of motor current, minimal wiring costs, and fast troubleshooting. With these motor starters, you can build more...
NEW FlowPack Cup (FPC) Series Suction Cup by COVAL
COVAL's new suction cup is fully dedicated to handling FlowPack packaging. A real technological breakthrough for a constantly evolving packaging method.
FlowPack packaging provides many advantages:
• Direct food contact
• Large visible area to show the products
• Great number of applications in various industries: fresh fruits and vegetables, food processing industry, cosmetics, laboratories, and more
• High production rates and low cost
When it comes to vacuum handling, flexibility is an absolute challenge because it implies a high risk of leakage and potentially poor product gripping or the need to compensate with high power.
COVAL has taken up this challenge with the FPC series suction cup. It is specifically designed ultra-flexible packaging and...
In many industrial applications, linear bearings can fail prematurely due to misalignment of the bearing rails and moving elements, inadequate lubrication of the bearing’s unsealed components or contamination of the bearing rails and raceways. Rollon has developed an alternative bearing solution that meets these design challenges and more, offering alignment and contamination resistance, lifelong lubrication and installation cost effectiveness.
Rollon's Compact Rail linear bearings system is improving machine life and performance in CNC machine doors, palletizing systems, medical imaging systems and laser glass engraving applications—making it easier than ever to avoid the application pitfalls that threaten bearing life.
Linear Bearing Solutions For CNC:
CNC machine doors are an axis often designed with less-than-ideal motion components, which makes them subject to deflection and alignment problems. They must also be able to work reliably in a...

Are you getting intelligence back from your control system?
Energy companies monitor the voltage and current supplied into every neighborhood. Wouldn’t you want to be able to monitor and be notified that a branch in your machines critical supply has suddenly changed?
Most systems are heavily dependent on a smooth stable power supply. Yet the installed device is the cheapest dirtiest and least featured device available.
Check out the NEW Siemens SITOP PSU8600!
This is the first power supply system that is completely embedded in Totally Integrated Automation (TIA). Not only does this facilitate especially user-friendly engineering in the TIA Portal, but also extensive evaluation of operating and diagnostics data as well as energy management functions.
