Thomson Electrak Hd Onboard Controls Make Your Applications Work Smarter

Thomson Electrak Hd Onboard Controls Make Your Applications Work Smarter

 

October 5th, 2016

Thomson Electrak HD

Due to the increasing integration of advanced electronics, today’s linear actuators have become safer, smarter and easier to network with agricultural, construction and mobile off-highway equipment.

Modern linear actuators like the Thomson Electrak HD offer analog and digital feedback. The Electrak Modular Control System also monitors critical parameters and can react to them automatically. They deliver inexpensive, real-time operating status and network flexibility with other systems.

All of this is the result of incorporating a programmable microprocessor to meet market demand for greater safety, functionality and modularity.

A Follow-up To Our Simatic Safety Integrated Plc Training Seminar - View It Online!

 

October 3rd, 2016

If you are looking to facilitate the seamless integration of safety technology in factory automation, then don't miss this online presentation. A Comprehensive overview of how easy it is to implement safety functions in one controller through one programming package over one communication connection for standard and fail-safe automation.

This Media System shows how to realize the required safety functions for a sample cutting machine based on a SIMATIC S7-1200.

We assume a risk analysis was performed for the sample cutting machine and the conclusion is that the monitoring of the E-STOP and the Safety door need to fulfill PL e (according to ISO 13849) respectively SIL 3 (according to IEC 62061)

The Media System explains this solution in several modules:
Module 1: Introduction
Module 2: Setting up/wiring of the SIMATIC S7-1200
Module 3: Engineering with Step 7 in TIA-Portal
Module 4: Testing
Module 5:...

    Technology Made Easy!

     

    September 12th, 2016

    Congested motorways, many intersections with traffic lights and the ever-present heavy-goods vehicles slowing you down – traffic obstructions such as these are a nuisance to car drivers. In automated networks such as PROFINET, the “data highway” of the industry, so to speak, similar obstacles play a decisive role in the quality of the communication and thus also affect the production results. Users who are aware of the significance of this correlation and who set up their networks accordingly are awarded with long-term stable data communication.

    Check out PROFINET – The Movie: Technology Made Easy by Indu-Sol which uses the traffic on our streets as an analogy to explain the basic relationships relevant to the technology and provides tips for an optimal network structure and communication diagnostics. The movie also takes a look at the quality parameters of the PROFINET Design and Commissioning Guidelines of PI (PROFIBUS & PROFINET International), explains their...

    How To Design For Heavy Loads

    How To Design For Heavy Loads

     

    August 5th, 2016

    Miniature Metric Precision Ball Screws

    The challenge for OEM engineers is about designing even more compact applications that provide smooth, precise movement and don’t require compromises in machine performance.

    Now that Thomson is offering three styles of mounting interfaces for its miniature metric precision ball screws as standard sizes, small-space application design options are virtually limitless.

    Joining the family’s threaded style (TSI) mounting interface are flanged (FSI) and rounded (RSI) styles, which benefit from a unique multi-liner ball return system that provides smooth and quiet operation.
    Though small in stature, they have been known to achieve increased lifecycles and twice the load capacity of comparable models in most sizes.
