Linear Actuators

Haydon Switch & Instrument (Waterbury, CT) has added the size 14 hybrid to its line of linear actuators. The devices are available with a 0.9-degree step angle and come in all four designs: captive, non-captive, external linear, and linear rotary. Combined with a stainless steel lead screw, the linear actuator provides positioning and motion. The step angle allows for a full-step linear movement of 1.6 microns.

Pressure-Compensated Flow Control Valve

Beswick Engineering (Greenland, NH) has released the PCFCD-1N1, an ultra-miniature pressure-compensated flow control valve with low-friction diaphragm. The device is designed to maintain a constant flow rate, which the customer can adjust, regardless of upstream or downstream pressure variations. It works with incompressible fluids and gasses, but is primarily intended for the control of liquids. The pressure regulation is accomplished with a low-friction diaphragm mechanism.

Shaft Grounding Ring

The AEGIS SGR™ Conductive MicroFiber™ Shaft Grounding Ring from Electro Static Technology (Mechanic Falls, ME) is suitable for predictive maintenance programs on VFD-controlled AC and DC motors. By protecting bearings from electrical damage, the SGR may extend motor life by preventing bearing noise, downtime, and motor repairs and replacements. Preventing shaft current damage, the AEGIS SGR provides predictive/ preventative maintenance programs for motor repair shops, maintenance contractors, HVAC service contractors, and in-house maintenance departments. The SGR’s conductive microfibers work with no friction or wear, are unaffected by dirt and grease, and last for the life of the motor, regardless of the RPM. The SGR can be mounted on any NEMA or IEC motor and provides clearance for motors with shaft shoulders, slingers, bearing caps, or end-bell protrusions.

Origin 8

OriginLab Corp., Northampton, MA, has announced Origin 8 Windows-based data analysis and graphing software that operates around a revamped workbook space, which allows results of an analysis to be placed into a worksheet within a raw data’s workbook. Parameter values, statistics, and related analysis graphs are available whenever looking at the original data. A new multi-sheet workbook feature keeps all related data, analyses, and graphs together. Sheets can be moved, added, inserted, or deleted. Workbooks in the new version also contain a new feature that allows users to embed graphs and images within cells to create a custom report. Another new feature called Sparklines allows for a special type of embedded graph found within worksheet column headers. Column Sparklines provide brief profiles of the column’s data, providing users with an at-a-glance profile of the data in a given column. The aspect ratio of column Sparklines can be changed to show more data trends by changing the column width and/or row height. A graph can be copied to the clipboard as a Sparkline to display a small, word-sized graphic within text documents.
