Rod Lock

The RLN Series Rod Lock from Advanced Machine & Engineering Co. (Rockford, IL) is designed to solve pneumatic control problems such as overtravel, drifting, bouncing, and reverse traveling. The Amlok(R) type RLN is constructed of black anodized aluminum with a piston and wedge locking mechanism actuated by multiple springs that mechanically lock the rod quickly and securely. The clamp is unlocked when air actuates the piston, compresses the spring, and releases the locking device.

Motor Controller

The BDE40 motor controller from Crouzet North America (Vista, CA) can be used with most three-phase brushless Hall Effect motors. The device’s 4-quadrant design is suited for applications requiring not only standard forward and reverse motor control, but also closed-loop speed control for motor slowing and stopping.

Encoder Warning System

The Series 800 rotary encoder from Leine & Linde (Schaumburg, IL) has an integrated early warning system that detects worn-out ball bearings. The warning system monitors the completeness of the rotary encoder pulses and the correct pulse sequence. The error is relayed as a flashing LED on the rear of the encoder housing. The time of the fault and the corresponding error code are stored in the encoder, so the user has the opportunity to read out and analyze the error code via an RS-232 interface, once the encoder has been removed. A report can also be displayed directly at the machine, if additional wiring is added to an overriding system control.
