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...

Protecting electrical equipment against damage:
The number of electrical consumers continues to grow – and along with them the load on electrical systems. In the event of overload or a short-circuit, miniature circuit breakers (MCBs) safely cut the connected circuit and thus reliably protect electrical systems and devices against damage. Miniature circuit breakers (MCBs) in the SENTRON portfolio are also easy to assemble and install. The devices feature a uniform design, and can be expanded to include many more functions thanks to an extensive range of accessories. For industries, buildings or infrastructure – our extensive portfolio has the right MCB for every...
