Teledyne DALSA Announces Production of Industry’s First Line Scan Polarization Camera:
Teledyne DALSA announced production of the new Polarization camera to its industry-leading Piranha™ family. First announced in Q2 2017, the Piranha4 Polarization camera is now in full production with improved performance. Polarization imaging significantly enhances detection capability in many demanding applications and represents a powerful new addition to system designers’ machine vision toolboxes.
The Piranha4-2k Polarization camera uses Teledyne DALSA’s advanced quadlinear CMOS image sensor with nanowire micro-polarizer filters. It captures multiple native polarization state data without any interpolation. With a maximum line rate of 70 kHz, the camera outputs independent images of 0°(s), 90° (p), and 135° polarization states as well as an unfiltered channel.

• Up to 30% higher performance through innovation with ASIC pollution compensation
• Higher protection and faster response times equate to a more robust sensor
• More resolution variants: new laser, special light spots, and potentiometer
• Compact sensor housing with new mounting options and compatibility of 22-25mm hole spacing and threaded sleeves
Ingeniously simple, fully symmetrical, and patented worldwide...
this is the successful formula behind Rittal’s TS 8 bayed enclosure system
◾ Rittal’s modular design allows for efficient system updates, flexible baying options and virtually endless configurations,
all based on a robust 16-fold tubular frame system
◾ The frame can hold weight loads up to 1,500 lbs. on the mounting panel and features multi-level mounting capability
for unsurpassed flexibility
◾ The 25 mm hole pattern allows components and accessories to be mounted in three directions – by height, width
and depth – which provides maximum space utilization (up to 30% more available space than traditional NEMA style
enclosures of equal dimension)
◾ The door is strengthened with an attached frame which includes holes on a 25 mm pitch pattern for the attachment
of ducts, cable harnesses, wiring plan pockets and much more
◾ The gasketed roof is secured with...
Embedded Actuator Synchronization from Thomson Offers New Stability and Efficiency for Large and Bulky Load Handling:
Thomson, a leading manufacturer of mechanical motion control solutions, has announced availability of of new synchronization capabilities for its Electrak® HD heavy duty electromechanical linear actuators. Designers of equipment in which large or awkward loads must be moved repeatedly and evenly, such as large solar panels or heavy hoods on construction equipment, can now simultaneously distribute that load using up to four actuators.
Traditional methods for synchronizing multiple actuators can be inflexible. Gas spring technology, for example, is limited in application, while hydraulic cylinders can be prone to leakage and costly to maintain. Non-integrated electronic systems have more flexibility and are cleaner but require external devices such as encoders and potentiometers to track position and send feedback to an external PLC or other logic...
COMPACT EXTERNAL ROTOR MOTOR FOR SERIES APPLICATIONS:
With the DF32, Nanotec has presented a flat and very compact external rotor motor. The eight-pole brushless DC motor with a diameter of 32 mm and a height of 18 mm achieves a rated power of 7.4 W. In addition to the standard winding for 24 V with a rated speed of 2760 rpm, customer-specific windings are also possible for series applications. For this motor, the rotor position feedback is provided by hall sensors.
Using a flat ribbon cable, the DF32 can be quickly and compactly connected to a control board in series with a suitable ZIF socket strip. For test purposes, Nanotec offers an additional adapter board with normal strands.
The DF32 is suitable for a wide range of applications and is an extremely economical solution especially for large series. Compared to other external rotor motors, it particularly stands out due to its high power density.
Self Learning 40Hp Soft Starters with Integrated Overload Protection:
Carlo Gavazzi announced the launch of the new compact, 45mm wide RSGD Series Soft Starter. The RSGD is an easy to use soft-starter for 3-phase induction AC motors, needing just three settings. The self-learning algorithm adjusts the soft starter parameters to work with different applications and varying load conditions. It is active at every start to ensure that the motor always starts with the optimal settings. New current balancing algorithm keeps the current unbalance to less than 15%.
The RSGD Series offers an option for Class 10 electronic overload, providing advanced motor protection and resulting in further space savings in the electrical panel. Phase sequence protection can be enabled and disabled easily through the integrated push button, thus simplifying installation in applications that require reversing. Torque controlled ramp-down results in much smoother deceleration of motors. All...
