Control System Software

SERVOSHAFT motion system control software from Danaher Motion (Wood Dale, IL) enables users to run all three functions of a control system (SCADA function, PLC, and motion control) from their own computers. The software meets IEC standard 61131-3 and supports the SFC, FBD, LD, ST, and IL programming languages. An OPC server enables communication with each SCADA system, and the platform also supports data exchange with PROFIBUS and CANopen.

Ionizers

A line of Koganei blow-type ionizers is available from Humphrey Products Co. (Kalamazoo, MI). Designed to remove static electricity and dust, the device is available in one-head, two-head, and compact models. A range of optional solid and flexible nozzles provides coverage from a wide area, to as close as 1 mm from the workpiece. Low-voltage DC power supplies a high-voltage AC transformer that produces a high-frequency AC field.

Motor Protection Circuit Breakers

The Series 330 motor protection circuit breakers from c3controls (Beaver, PA) are available with thermal and magnetic trip elements providing overload and short circuit protection, and magnetic trip element only for short circuit protection. Both units come in universal rating and markings (A, kW, and HP), as well as third-party certification markings. They meet UL and CSA standards requirements as Manual Motor Controllers for use as Motor Disconnects, and meet National Electrical Code requirements for use in multi-motor applications. Also included are visible trip indicators for fast identification of which device tripped in a control panel where multiple motor protection breakers are installed.

Infrared Cooled Camera

The Silver 480M from Cedip Infrared Systems, Croissy-Beaubourg, France, is an infrared cooled camera that provides an acquisition and processing system for dynamic phenomena and high-frequency periodic excitation. Designed to perform ultra-fast thermographic analysis, the camera uses analog inputs for synchronous acquisition of external sensor signals that, after processing by a lock-in technique, enable non-destructive evaluation, fatigue testing, and stress analysis. The camera is based on the company’s cryogenically cooled staring focal plane array detectors, and incorporates Read Out Integrated Circuit (ROIC) technology. The camera features a 320 x 240 pixel format InSb detector that delivers a 400-Hz full frame rate.

Intensified Imaging Camera

The hsfc pro from The Cooke Corp., Romulus, MI, has a single optical input and consists of an image splitter unit, four intensified CCD camera modules with fast switchable MCP image intensifiers, and high-resolution CCD image sensors. Each module has 12-bit dynamic range, and a high-resolution CCD image sensor features high signal-to-noise ratio and single-photon detection. Four high-speed serial fiber optic data links connect the system to a PC. It can be triggered externally by light or electrical input. The system is suited for imaging of extremely fast events such as hypervelocity impacts, short time physics, ballistics, and combustion imaging.
