Light Source Software

Radiant Imaging (Duvall, WA) has released ProSource 8.0 software for light source near-field data analysis and ray generation. ProSource 8.0 generates ray data that accurately represent the output of the light source and can be exported for use with all popular optical and illumination system design software packages. Users can control the number of rays generated, angular range of the rays, total luminous flux of the ray set, and ray origin. Photopic and color ray sets (RGB) are supported, and the number of rays that can be generated is limited only by disk space.

ML7 BGS sensors

Pepperl+Fuchs, Twinsburg, OH, has introduced the ML7 Background Suppression (BGS) photoelectric sensors that feature a 31 x 11 x 23 mm housing, and a sensing range of up to 350 mm. Background suppression optimizes the detection of variously colored targets without the need for reflectors or thru-beam sensing arrangements. Objects in the background, even directly behind the target, are ignored. The sensors feature automatic cross-talk protection that enables multiple sensors to be mounted side-by-side with no interference. LED indicators provide power and output status, as well as diagnostic information. The sensors also feature 4-in-1™ output technology that automatically detects the connected load, and sinks or sources as needed. The ML7 BGS sensors have an adjustable sensing range that can be customized. Applications include converting, material handling, packaging, and assembly operations that require long sensing ranges.

Thin Motor

The MigaOne™ motor from Miga Motor Company (Berkeley, CA) is a powerful but lightweight linear actuator built directly onto a PCB substrate. Now being adapted for use by NASA and Boeing, the wafer-thin motor is smaller than a credit card, measuring less than 0.1in. The motor eliminates bulky gears and leadscrews and occupies less than 10% the weight and volume of a comparable motor or solenoid.

Heavy-Duty Slide

The HepcoMotion HDS2 from Bishop-Wisecarver (Pittsburg, CA), offers system capacities up to 68kN, and adds new bearing sizes including a 150mm diameter vee bearing and a 144mm diameter taper roller bearing. Maximum single bearing capacity is 50kN, compared to 20kN previously. Low friction cap wipers expel dirt and debris, and provide continuous lubrication for long service life. A removable cover allows easy system adjustment without disassembly.

Hose Products Quick Reference Guide

Parker Hannifin Corp. (Wickliffe, OH) has released a new Hose products Division Quick Reference Guide (Bulletin 4400-B13) describing the division’s hydraulic, Push-Lok®, suction and return, transportation and refrigerant hose products. Now available from Parker’s Hose Products Division and new to the Quick Reference Guide are 451TC and 471TC Twin Tough braided hydraulic hoses that eliminate the labor and material costs required to manually bundle two separate hoses using tie straps or plastic sleeves. An expanded offering of F42 specialty hydraulic hose is also available, as is a new compressed air hose (CAH) for industrial air compressors.

Ball Valve

Hayward Flow Control Systems (Clemmons, NC, has announced a line of compact ball valves for a wide range of heavy duty chemical, water, and wastewater applications. The QVC and QTA series ball valves feature a rugged, all-plastic design usually found on higher cost ball valves, socket or threaded pipe connectors, Santoprene (TPV) seats, full porting, and a 150 PSI pressure rating. QVC Series valves are available in 1/2 to 4in. sizes in gray or white PVC, QTA Series valves are available in 1/2 to 2in. sizes in gray or white PVC, and include socket and threaded True Union end connections. The valves provide easy quarter-turn operation and are designed to fit into spaces too small for other valves.
