Linear Indexing Drive

The RS indexing drive from Amacoil (Aston, PA) is available in seven sizes to meet axial thrust requirements from 22 to 450 pounds. The drive is available in five different linear pitch settings. The model RS linear positioning drive runs on a smooth shaft. There are no threads where debris may be trapped and cause clogs or jams. This provides built-in overload protection.

Motion Control Processor

The Magellan motion control processor from Performance Motion Devices, Inc. (Lincoln, MA) comes in one, two, three, and four-axis chip set versions that can control DC brush, brushless DC, micro stepping, and pulse & direction motors. The motion controller requires only an external amplifier to be functional. It is driven by a host using an 8 or 16-bit parallel bus, CANBus 2.0B, or an asynchronous serial port. User selectable profiling modes include Scurve, trapezoidal, velocity contouring and electronic gearing. Servo loop compensation utilizes a full 32-bit position error, PID with velocity and acceleration feedforward, integration limit, and dual bi-quad filters for sophisticated motion control of complex loads.

I/O Module

Holjeron (Tualatin, OR) has introduced the Aqua Series I/O modules for DeviceNet™. The module is designed for outdoor use in temperatures as low as -30 C and as high as 70 C. They are available in four analog input, four analog output, eight individually configurable digital I/O, and four frequency input versions. The modules are fully potted and sealed to NEMA 6P and IP68. They are suited for construction vehicles, petrochemical, wastewater and other process industries where robust and rugged DeviceNet™ I/O is needed, without the need for additional enclosures. The modules are protected against shock and vibration, while delivering fast response times and high resolution.

X-Ray Camera

Andor Technology, South Windsor, CT, offers the iKon-M x-ray camera available in two models: the DO and DY. The DO interfaces with vacuum chambers, and the DY is a standalone camera with a beryllium input window. The cameras offer a low-read noise floor, high QE across the x-ray, XUV, and EUV energy ranges, and negligible dart current with thermoelectric cooling to -90°C. Readout speeds of up to 2.5 MHz enable faster frame rate imaging of dynamic processes.

Digital Video Recorder

NorPix, Montreal, QE, Canada, has released a small-form-factor video recorder for airborne applications. The system is GigE Vision and IEEE 1394B compatible, and records with two HDTV or GigE Vision cameras simultaneously with StreamPix4 software. It records to solid-state drives or RAM, and records from one HDTV or GigE Vision-compatible camera in compressed format. It is touchscreen-compatible and records to USB memory sticks using CineForm compression. Applications include image archiving and motion analysis.
