LABKON P series computer controllable KONSTANTERs provide users with DC power supplies for manual and remote control and for laboratory and system use. Their manufacturer GOSSEN METRAWATT now extends the existing product portfolio by two new models for supply voltages up to 20 V. The power supplies with nominal ratings of 500 W and 800 W generate maximum currents of 25 A and 40 A respectively. “Given the large number of applications for 12 V onboard power supplies and the need for higher currents in this voltage range, we have expanded our KONSTANTER portfolio, adding two new LABKON P models,” says Andreas Stollberg, product manager at GOSSEN METRAWATT. All LABKON P devices have good dynamic characteristics with regard to setpoint changes and sudden load changes. The specified nominal values can be delivered continuously thanks to the power output’s outstanding stability, and they can be duplicated at any time with accurate, digital setpoint specification, which assures reproducible results. Users can store individual device configurations to setup memory and retrieve them as required. This saves time when setting up an instrument for recurrent testing tasks. In addition to the standard RS232 port, USB and GPIB (IEEE-488) interfaces are optionally available. The SCPI command set allows for trouble-free integration into automated test systems. The LABKON P series comprises KONSTANTERs with nominal power ratings of 500 W and 800 W. These power supplies provide output voltages between 20 V and 120 V and currents up to 40 A, and thereby cover a wide range of applications.

HMI specialist Griessbach now offers CAN modules with 4, 6, 8, 10, or 12 pushbuttons as off-the-shelf Basic and Pro product series with different feature levels. The particularly cost-efficient Basic series features pushbutton icons lit by white LEDs and two green status LEDs above individual buttons. The pushbuttons on Pro modules feature ring lighting in traffic light colors with optional color change; RGB LEDs enable individual icon lighting in freely selectable colors. Pro-series modules feature a remote wake-up function and can be activated from power-saving mode to functional state via a CAN request. The integrated error memory logs any instances of malfunctions. The pushbutton modules for decentralized control of machine functions are designed for quick and easy installation and bus connection via CANopen and J1939. All Basic and Pro models can be configured as required for baud rate, addressing, terminating resistor, and front foil design. Robust Deutsch plug connectors fed in from below are resin-molded with the entire assembly inside the housing; they secure the connection against mechanical stress caused by shock and vibration. Full resin-casting prevents ingress of dust, dirt, and moisture according to the IP65 degree of protection. A powerful 32-bit controller increases the units’ storage capacity for implementing customized and safety protocols and provides a larger bandwidth for data communication.

Losyco expands its LOXrail intra-logistics system for the mechanical engineering industry, introducing an innovative brake module that fully automatically stops loads transported on rails. Specified for manually operated trolleys and transport platforms, the SmartBrake system autonomously safely stops trolleys and loads if the track is blocked by an obstacle or when the operator stops pushing. This is enabled by special sensors with pattern detection active in two directions. Both detection methods reliably activate the brake even with protruding loads. They automatically switch functions when the direction of travel is reversed. Sensors at the rear detect the step pattern and activate the brake as soon as the operator stops pushing. Upon restarting, the brake is automatically released. Sensory obstacle detection towards the front automatically stops the platform if persons or objects block the path. The manufacturer configures the newly engineered SmartBrake module for individual customer projects. The self-reinforcing system is not subject to load limitation and can be adapted for all manually operated transport trolleys for LOXrail floor rails with a 25 or 40-mm diameter.

Menzel Elektromotoren has built a replica of an old DC motor for a large German steel strip manufacturer. The new motor was designed as a reserve for two site applications, a roller motor and a coiler drive. This flexible configuration saves the customer money and storage space, whilst protecting the rolling mill against downtime in the event of either existing motor suffering damage. To determine the essential data, Menzel engineers worked closely with the customer, studied the existing motor’s documentation, and took additional measurements. Menzel manufactured a special construction with two shaft ends, foot dimensions matching both installation sites, as well as provision for a special encoder including an insulated coupling. The positions of the terminal box and the air inlet opening were adapted to the existing connections on site. The DC motor featuring 450 kW rated power and 530 V rated voltage is also characterized by a high field-weakening range. A family-run, customer-focused business, Menzel fulfills even demanding individual requests. Replicas of old motors are something of a specialty of Menzel’s – from electrically and mechanically suitable replacements to exact copies. The current customer is fully satisfied with the DC motor supplied and has already placed a second order.

Vision Components based its new VC DragonCam on the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor. The company thus utilizes the computing power and price efficiency of a quad-core processor that has been proven in countless consumer products for an industrial-grade embedded vision system. The VC DragonCam board camera integrates an image sensor, various customary interfaces, and the processor, which runs a Debian-based operating system, on a small 65 x 40 mm footprint. This makes the programmable embedded vision system ideal for OEM designs. VC DragonCam features twelve GPIOs, 1 GB memory, and up to 32 GB flash memory, with standard interfaces such as GBit Ethernet and RS-232 integrated onboard. Two adapter boards with additional interfaces provided as conventional sockets enable easy connection of peripherals, ideal for fast prototyping. Vision Components integrates high-end CMOS sensors in the new embedded vision system series, starting with Sony Pregius IMX 273. This global shutter sensor featuring a 1456 x 1088 pixel resolution and 225 fps frame rate is optimally suited for applications with short exposure times and high speeds. In addition to the monochrome model, a color camera is available on request. VC DragonCam models with additional Sony sensors are on the road map.

Menzel Elektromotoren has customized a motor for a compressor drive operated by Tata Steel, shipping it within just two weeks. A motor failure had stalled the booster air compressor, which is integral to one of the corporation’s Indian steelworks, providing oxygen necessary for steel production. Thanks to its modular warehousing strategy, Menzel was able to speedily configure a squirrel-cage motor in accordance with customer specifications. The MEBKSL-type motor was electrically and mechanically adapted to enable installation and commissioning by the customer without further modifications of the motor or the site. The motor with an operating voltage of 6600 V and a rated power of 3200 kW was fitted with an air-to-air heat exchanger (cooling type IC 611). Menzel staff at the Berlin plant shortened the motor shaft, milled the shaft end, and produced intermediate plates to adjust the fixing dimensions to the existing installation site. The 2-pole motor was designed with sleeve bearings with 2-wedge bearing shells to avoid any critical speed in the vicinity of the operating point of 2987 rpm. The motor is also designed for demanding conditions with ambient temperatures up to 50 °C and humidity up to 95%. It features a tropicalized motor winding in temperature class „F“ and the increased protection class IP55. Menzel manufactures motors for large industrial compressors in various types and offers several feature options. The company’s large stock includes several series of squirrel-cage and slip ring motors with air or water cooling or open-circuit ventilation, optionally with self-ventilation or forced ventilation, and prepared for inverter operation.
