The EtherCAT Flexslice System is designed to let you do more! It offers fast flexible expansion for motion applications and can be used with Trio or 3rd Party Masters.
Trio’s Flexslice input/output modules provide a robust, high speed and flexible solution for both motion control and general automation. EtherCAT cycle times down to 250µsecs are supported and the bus coupler uses EBUS technology to bring all the sub-modules on to the EtherCAT network with no degradation in performance.
The Flexslice system makes available a selection of digital and analogue I/O terminals as well as motion modules with pulse + direction outputs designed for precise positioning of stepper and servo motors via suitable drive technology. The digital I/O modules have high-speed functionality. In addition, analogue modules and axis modules may be fitted to make a superbly tailored system that can be placed remotely from the master if needed.
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...
Trio’s PC-MCAT 64 is an innovative “Motion + PC Solution”. A powerful quad core Intel Atom processor is used to drive both a high performance motion controller and a compact PC that can run user applications under Windows. The PC-MCAT software uses a real-time extension to allow both Windows and the motion controller to run directly on their own processor cores. The motion controller’s own dedicated EtherCAT master Ethernet port can launch data packets with less than 1µsec of jitter. The 1.91GHz Atom processor is paired with 4 GBytes of RAM and a high speed 64 GByte upgradable SSD to give sufficient PC performance for many machine types. PC-MCAT is especially suitable where a machine type needs the software and hardware facilities of a PC paired with a powerful 64 axis motion coordinator. The HDMI port can be used to drive high resolution displays for sophisticated operator interfaces. The large 64 GByte SSD drive can hold...

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...
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...
