Berlin-based Menzel Elektromotoren is one of the few manufacturers of large dual-speed or pole-changing low and medium voltage motors today. This motor type can propel fans, pumps, hoists, and other machines at two different speeds without a frequency inverter – a cost-saving solution for applications requiring only two speeds that moreover reduces the risk of failure. Typically, these motors are designed for an operating speed and a slower speed to facilitate startup. Dual-speed designs of large motors have become a rare exception. However, the family-run company Menzel continues to offer this option. In a current project, the end customer had explicitly specified pole-changing motors. To implement the particular speed ratios, Menzel manufactured three-phase asynchronous motors with two independent stator windings, a 6-pole and an 8-pole winding combined in one housing. The motors intended to power fans in a cement plant have a rated voltage of 6000 V with rated operating speeds of 988 min-1 and 746 min-1 at rated outputs of 850 kW and 500 kW respectively. As another special feature, these customized motors withstand ambient temperatures from -38 °C to 40 °C. Menzel, a motor manufacturer serving customers worldwide, individually assesses requests for larger low and medium voltage motors for optimum feasibility whilst supporting customers in choosing the right solution.

Vision Components adapts the widest range of machine vision image sensors on MIPI camera modules and is the first manufacturer to also integrate non-native MIPI sensors such as Sony Pregius IMX250 and IMX252. The portfolio currently comprises 10 sensors with resolutions up to 20 MP and is being continuously expanded. It includes global shutter, rolling shutter, and global reset shutter versions. The latter offer significant price advantages over global shutter variants with roughly the same functionality. The compact, only 23.5 mm wide VC MIPI boards feature a 22-pin MIPI CSI-2 port for FPC (flexible printed circuit) cables. They are compatible to over 20 CPU boards including NVIDIA Jetson, DragonBoard, all Raspberry Pi boards, and all 96boards. Vision Components has developed proprietary shielded FPC cables that ensure robust data transfer and support the full bandwidth of the MIPI standard. The cables with two or four transmission lanes can be connected to 15 and 22-pin MIPI ports. Depending on the processor, this allows communication at twice the maximum speed of USB3 cameras. The MIPI standard supports relatively short transfer distances. Vision Components has developed repeaters for its 200 mm cables that can amplify the signal up to five times. This allows transmission paths to be extended to more than 1 m without compromising speed or signal quality. The repeater board also features a trigger interface (image trigger input/flash trigger output) and thereby augments CPU boards lacking these particular interfaces. The VC MIPI range furthermore includes lens holders, filter discs, adapter boards, as well as custom carrier boards and interface extensions. In addition, the manufacturer has already developed stable drivers for the most common hardware combinations and is steadily continuing this work to connect additional boards. Vision Components provides these drivers to its customers free of charge. More about MIPI: www.mipi-modules.com

CONTA-CLIP expands its range of accessories for the KDS and KES cable management systems, adding sealing plugs. The KDS/KES-VS plugs have a mushroom head that prevents complete insertion and allows for easy removal. They are available in diameters between 1.5 mm and 22 mm. The sealing plugs provide flexible and reliable sealing of feedthrough channels according to protection degree IP66. Their protruding edge provides additional protection against splashing water and dust. The plugs can be used to quickly seal KES openings that have been perforated; and they allow for pre-configuration of KDS sealing elements for cable assemblies that can be completed at a later point. CONTA-CLIP’s KDS and KES systems enable tool-less configuration of cable and conduit feedthroughs and entries, as well as subsequent changes without compromising the ingress protection degree.

At the 2020 Hannover Messe, Menzel Elektromotoren will focus on motors with IP67 ingress protection. Menzel’s subsidiary Franz Wölfer Elektromaschinenfabrik will showcase its newly developed water-jacket-cooled motor. Menzel specializes in short-term production of large-scale industrial motors. The Berlin-based manufacturer is now increasing its stock of IP67 components in order to also enable shorter delivery times for this type of motor. IP67 motors resist ingress of water even if temporarily submerged. Enquiries for this protection class usually concern flood-prone pumping stations and maritime applications. The manufacturer offers optional IPX7 TĂśV tests. The three-phase asynchronous motors are available with squirrel cage rotors or slipring rotors with outputs from 37 kW to 1,500 kW, with voltages from 380 V to 13,800 V, up to and including size 500. Menzel fits waterproof encapsulated motor housings and clamping boxes and ensures assembly with minimum tolerances. When the water has receded after a flooding, the motors are ready to be switched on again immediately. Menzel subsidiary Wölfer will present the prototype of a new totally enclosed water-jacket-cooled motor series for frequency inverter operation, which was successfully tested with a rated power of 230 kW in operating mode S1 – continuous operation. The market launch of this new motor generation with water jacket cooling will take place later this year. 4-pole and 6-pole versions from size 180 to 450 are planned. These IP56 motors are more compact, lighter, and more dynamic than TEFC motors. In addition to Wölfer’s established core markets offshore floating cranes and winch drives, target applications also include mining, steelworks, and naval propulsion drives. Delegates and trade fair visitors are invited to discuss their need for drive solutions with asynchronous motors up to 20 MW and DC motors up to 2000 kW with the team at the booth. Menzel is committed to always maintaining the same high level of quality even in fulfilling unusual customer requests.
Menzel at Hannover Messe, 20 – 24 April 2020 Hall 5, Stand C36

EGE introduces a new generation of level controllers with guided microwave: the MFN series sensors feature an IO-Link interface and thereby enable continuous access of PLCs to process and parameterization data. Using a corresponding master, the level controllers can be connected to any common bus system and conveniently parameterized via PC or notebook. The guided microwave measuring principle ensures high reliability due to its insensitivity to external influences such as temperature, pressure, or density. It provides for precise measurements in liquids such as water, oil, and emulsions as well as in viscous media. MFN sensors stand out due to their particularly short reaction times in case of level changes. Their display units can be configured to show the measured level in mm, cm, inch, liter, or percent. The housings can be rotated by 360° along with integrated LED indicators and control panels, allowing users easy access for configuring the devices and reading measured values. The level controllers feature IP67 ingress protection and are designed for an ambient temperature range of -25 °C to +85 °C. EGE’s level controller portfolio includes variants with coaxial, single, and double probes for use in different media. The company also manufactures probes from special materials such as Hastelloy or titanium for use in aggressive media. Moreover, EGE also adapts sensors to customer-specific tank geometries and difficult installation conditions, on request.
