Analog Input Modules

The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech (Cincinnati, OH) has unveiled two new ADAM analog input modules, the ADAM-5017P and ADAM-5018P. The ADAM-5017P has eight different independent configuration channels, supports power reverse, and has a wide unipolar or bipolar input range. The ADAM-5018P is a Thermocouple Input Module which supports seven input ranges and types (J,K,T,E,R,S,B), and will filter functions to remove any unreasonable range.

Brushless DC Motor Drive

The TA2230 constant velocity drive from Trust Automation (San Diego, CA) is designed to run a brushless motor at a constant velocity using the motor’s ll sensors for the velocity feedback. Using an RS232 interface, the drive can be programmed at start-up to ramp up at a preset rate and maintain a constant velocity, regardless of load changes.

Torque Sensor

A rotating torque sensor from Sensor Development (Lake Orion, MI) feature a bearing system that allows the structure to be exposed to very high radial loads without damage. Most standard torque sensors require their housings to float to minimize any extraneous loading other than the torque applied to the shaft.
