CONTA-CLIP has launched HYDH, an ergonomically optimized Hygienic Door Handle that is quick and easy to install. Because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, hospitals and other public institutions and commercial buildings have a greater need for hands-free door handles as a way to lower the spread of infection. Various manufacturers have launched products that are operated with the forearm instead. However, most existing solutions require screw attachment, can slip or tilt, or come in two different versions for left and right hinged doors. Therefore, CONTA-CLIP has designed a universal hands-free handle that fits left and right hinged doors with round, oval, or rectangular latches and that allows for secure attachment without screws or tools. Featuring an ergonomic jacket design, HYDH allows for comfortable use with the forearm or elbow. The one-size-fits-all clasp is simply slipped onto the door handle where it latches tightly. Flexible spacers facing the door keep it firmly in place even if it is pushed or pulled with strong forces. If fixed with the tamper-protection clamps included in delivery, HYDH can afterwards only be removed with a screwdriver. Made of durable, chemical-resistant plastic, the hygienic door handle withstands frequent disinfection with aggressive cleaning agents. HYDH is available in nine colors. In addition, CONTA-CLIP offers to provide individual colors, lettering, or logos for hotels, restaurants, and other customers interested in maintaining a uniform corporate design. More information as well as a short demo video on installation of the door handle are available at www.hydh.de.

The food processing industry relies heavily on temperature measurement – not only to prove compliance with food safety but also as a crucial means to optimize cooking cycles and save money. As a provider of thermal profiling and non-contact infrared temperature measurement solutions, Fluke Process Instruments has all requirements covered. Datapaq Food Tracker systems record the product and air temperatures in such processes as cooking, baking, and freezing. Based on a Datapaq datalogger, thermocouples, a protective barrier, and the powerful, yet easy to use Insight analysis software for lethality calculations, they pass through the process with the food products and generate HACCP-compliant reports. The Food Tracker’s radio functionality enables real-time cook validation, allowing operators to shorten cooking cycles and increase throughput. Complementing the profiling systems, infrared spot pyrometers such as the Thermalert 4.0, linescanners such as the Raytek MP150, and the TV40 thermal camera enable end-to-end product temperature monitoring. All these systems can continually monitor food products as they enter and exit an oven or chiller. They are designed for integration into process control systems and can be built into machinery for OEM applications.

autoVimation has launched a new, particularly compact system for positioning and precise alignment of protective camera enclosures. At the heart of the modular system, fine positioning axes with a 150-mm adjusting range feature hand cranks with 1.5 mm feed per revolution for maximum adjustment accuracy. The axes are more compact than conventional types, since slides travel directly on the spindle channel’s dovetail profile. At 40 mm x 16 mm, the axes‘ profile cross-section is similar in size to a matchbox. Cameras can be freely positioned at any angle. The system includes a comprehensive range of accessories – profile rails, rotary axes, angles, and exchangeable positioning tables for vertical or parallel-axis mounting – which allow for rapid construction of multi-axis assemblies. Unlike existing products, the autoVimation system requires no adapter plates, since all components feature the same profile systems. Camera housings or other axes can be mounted on the positioning tables by means of dovetail brackets. For ergonomic handling in any position, the feed cranks can be mounted on either end as required. A millimeter scale on the side of the profile facilitates exact adjustment of the slide position. Alternatively, autoVimation offers fine positioning axes with an integrated position sensor and an accuracy of 10 µm, accompanied by digital display modules that can visualize positioning data for up to three axes. Fixed in place, form-fit dovetail brackets withstand replacement forces up to 2000 N. They prevent scratching of the profiles and provide a secure hold even of vertically mounted axes and under high loads. Even with the bracket lose, the self-locking spindle drive prevents uncontrolled movement of the load in axial direction.

Baden-WĂĽrttemberg state water supply, a German special-purpose association, urgently needed a new motor for a pump that is only used at peak times during the summer. Since Menzel Elektromotoren had already proven itself as a reliable supplier in the past, nothing was more obvious than a quick call to the Berlin-based manufacturer. Menzel has the largest inventory of industrial motors in Europe and had a suitable three-phase slip ring rotor motor on hand, with a 710 mm shaft height, 3700 kW rated power, and 5000 V rated voltage. A member of staff took the measurements on site in the pumphouse. Since the old, failed motor had a flanged shaft with a permanently fixed coupling half, Menzel procured a new coupling half. The team also welded a base frame to bring the new, more compact motor to the shaft height of original. The existing installation was special in that all supply lines were fed in from below. Therefore, new cable ducts were implemented in the station floor next to the motor, whilst Menzel repositioned the terminal boxes. Menzel staff also commissioned the motor and could therefore check firsthand that the installation was complete and subsequent startup was flawless. Menzel has manufactured pump motors for a wide range of applications in the past. More information is available at https://www.menzel-motors.com/pump-drive/.

Launching its new VC MIPI Embedded Vision Kit for the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3 or 3+, Vision Components enables quick setup of full-fledged, industrial-grade embedded vision systems. This is a cost-effective and powerful solution for all development processes from concept design to prototype development to serial production. To meet OEM requirements and qualify for industrial use, the kit’s long-term availability is ensured. Designed and manufactured in Germany, all components have been optimized for full interoperability. The Raspi CM is simply inserted in the newly developed VC Compute Module Interface (CMI) board, the central part of the VC MIPI Embedded Vision Kit. The CMI board features a VC MIPI camera module including a software driver, an FPC (flexible printed circuit) VC MIPI cable, and an S-mount/M12 lens holder. Trigger functionality, crucial for industrial vision applications, is also a standard feature. By default, the bundle contains OmniVision’s OV9281 image sensor with a 1-MP resolution, 120 fps frame rate, and global shutter. As an alternative, customers can choose from the full range of VC MIPI camera modules, all of which connect to the CMI board: high-resolution image sensors up to over 20 MP, with either global shutter, global reset shutter, or rolling shutter. Remarkably, Vision Components even offers MIPI modules with sensors that do not have a native MIPI interface but are well-suited for industrial embedded vision applications. To facilitate integration in OEM designs, the VC CMI board comprises an SD card slot for additional memory, GigE and USB interfaces, a trigger input, a flash trigger output, digital interfaces (four inputs, four outputs), a display output, and sockets for two MIPI camera modules for optional stereo vision applications. The freely programmable integrated FPGA enables customer-specific adjustments of image acquisition and trigger functionality. As the default setting, an external trigger signal is sent synchronously to the two MIPI modules. The manufacturer also offers an LED ring light with a rated power of up to 2 x 1.5 A, which is powered and controlled by the integrated lighting controller.
