The RAMO F feedthroughs feature an IP65 degree of protection when the protective cap is closed. RAMO EDGE 90° mounting angles allow for remote mounting of individual feedthroughs and other RAMO components on vertical surfaces or on 40-mm profile rails. RAFI especially designed all RAMO 22 and 30 components for individual housing-free mounting at remote locations. Featuring single-part, fully enclosed mono-housings, the feedthroughs can be installed in 22.3 mm or 30.3 mm mounting holes without an additional housing, just like the series‘ pushbuttons, emergency stop switches, selector switches, keylock switches, and LED signal lamps. RAMO 22 components feature black plastic front rings. RAMO 30 versions have a flat stainless-steel bezel.

EGE has developed a new compact, rugged MDVH amplifier with enhanced sensitivity for its System 3000 industrial metal detector. The completely redesigned amplifier is characterized by higher adjustable sensitivity levels, reduced susceptibility to interference, and a more robust housing with IP67 ingress protection. Featuring automatic self-calibration, the unit works reliably even if the detector coil comes near metal fittings. Users can adjust the sensitivity of the detector coil as required via a rotary potentiometer on the housing front. The amplifier has a 260 x 160 x 90 mm wide aluminum housing. It is designed for an extended temperature range of -25 °C to +70 °C. EGE’s System 3000 is used in conveyor lines for noncontact detection of metal parts that could damage downstream machines or degrade the quality of bulk solids. Thanks to its rugged design, it is suited for outdoor use in harsh and dirty environments. The size of detected parts varies for different models. The MDVH unit is optimized for medium-sized parts such as nails, nuts, wire, or silverware. MDV series devices are designed to protect machinery by identifying larger metal parts such as excavation bucket teeth or parts of tools and enclosures.

Vision Components will present its latest embedded vision systems and MIPI camera modules at the 2020 LogiMAT trade fair in Stuttgart, Germany. Co-exhibitor Retenua will demonstrate its advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) for forklift trucks, which is based on an intelligent VC stereo camera. The board camera detects the reflective stripes on high-visibility clothing and prevents accidents and injuries. This innovative approach is very effective at low system costs. The near-infrared flash is another new feature of this type of camera-based ADAS; it ensures very good results both in the dark and in bright sunlight. Vision Components pursues a new approach to OEM projects, launching its VC MIPI range. These high-tech components enable easy connection of various image sensors to more than 20 CPU boards, including NVIDIA Jetson, DragonBoard, all Raspberry Pi boards, and all 96Boards. Vision Components has even integrated non-native MIPI sensors in MIPI camera modules, using a specially developed adapter board. Examples for these are IMX250 and IMX252 sensors from the Sony Pregius series, which is characterized by high light sensitivity and very low dark noise. The broad choice of MIPI camera modules allows OEMs to configure their embedded vision projects with great flexibility. Vision Components has also emphasized the flexibility factor, developing its latest embedded vision systems with a quad-core processor. All models from the VCSBC DragonCam series feature a Snapdragon 410 processor at 1.2 GHz clock rate, 1 GB RAM, and 16 GB flash memory. They also come with a GigE interface and 12 GPIOs and can be extended by two optional add-on boards with an SD card slot and more interfaces: serial interface, I?C, RS232, DSI, RJ45 Ethernet adapter, and power interface.

The keylock switches from RAFI’s RAMO K range offer a rugged, fast-assembly control solution for decentralized applications where it is necessary to lock critical actuation functions. Like all control elements and indicators from the RAMO program, the keylock switches do not require any additional installation housing. The completely closed housing with IP65 degree of protection and the M12 terminal ensure rapid on-site assembly without time-consuming manual wiring. Thanks to the Plug&Play connection via standard M12 plug terminals, even untrained personnel can commission the devices from the RAMO 22 and RAMO 30 series for 22.3 mm or 30.3 mm mounting holes. With the RAMO EDGE 90° mounting angle for individual mounting, the switches can also be mounted as required on any vertical surface and on 40-mm profile rails. RAFI supplies the RAMO K keylock switches in a variety of types with rotating angles of 40°, 60°, or 90° as well as various rotating angle shapes. The switches are also available with distinctive haptic qualities for up to three switching positions with momentary contact, latching, or combined actuating functions. The RAMO 22 and 30 models differ not only in their dimensions, but also in design, with black front rings made of synthetic material or flat stainless-steel front rings. RAFI presents the RAMO range of operating and indicating elements as well as feedthroughs at www.rafi.de/en/ramo-2230.

RAFI exhibited its developments and products in the field of control components, system components, and capacitive input technologies at the 2019 SPS trade show in Nuremberg, Germany. Introducing Smart Solutions, RAFI presented a new technology concept for wireless condition and progress signaling for use in intralogistics processes. The portal-based system intelligently links mobile pushbutton units with freely positionable signal lamps via WiFi. What makes Smart Solutions stand out are the universal application options, simple use, and fast setup. The pushbutton boxes and signal lamps integrate WiFi interfaces. The units come with an unambiguous ID and a USB port connector. To start up the system, the user simply logs in to the RAFI portal once, defines the linking logic required, and saves a digital twin of its application. Another RAFI highlight at the trade fair was a representative cross-section of the company’s solutions for renowned customers in machine and plant engineering, automotive and commercial vehicle manufacturing, communications electronics, and household appliances. The product range on show covered everything from handheld units and operating panels to electronic assemblies and fully integrated complete solutions for commercial vehicle control. RAFI is not only one of Germany’s largest contract manufacturers of electronics, but also ranks among Europe’s leading manufacturers of capacitive industrial touchscreens. With its Twin Touch technology, RAFI has launched a new generation of industrial touch data entry systems featuring combined touch and force detection. This solution prevents accidental input errors and opens up scope for new input levels. It means users can select or set function menus or parameters by varying the pressure exerted on the display. Another innovation, the mechanical key switches and finger guidance solutions in the FLEXSCAPE range enable reliable blind operation of touchscreen functions. The touchscreen keeps its high degrees of resilience and ingress protection because the actuators are fixed without openings or holes in the surface. Other areas of the trade fair stand were dedicated to compact embedded control units (ECU) for HMIs and control systems, new basic models for the JOYSCAPE joystick platform, and RAFI’s successful switch and key switch programs.

Introducing a portable battery tester, Gossen Metrawatt expands its lineup of measuring and test devices, which help professionals ensure the safe configuration and functioning of electrical equipment. The brand-new METRACELL BT Pro is a versatile solution for testing battery storage systems in DC voltage infrastructures. Above and beyond the required capacity tests, this battery tester can also perform demanding maintenance tasks – it detects premature aging of batteries and thus assures that projected energy output levels are met. For this purpose, the tester measures the electrical and electrochemical resistance, which increase with battery use and aging. A temperature sensor can be connected to the device. Additional METRACELL BT Pro functions include interval measurement with simultaneous logging of the battery block’s or battery system’s voltage up to 600 V and of the charging/discharge current. An integrated RFID transponder system facilitates efficient management of all necessary measurement tasks for hundreds of energy storage facilities and helps eliminate sources of error. The METRACELL BT Pro tester features an interface for Anton Paar DMA35 density sensors to allow maintenance personnel to determine the essential density and temperature values for closed batteries.
