Borst Adapters

Qosina (Edgewood, NY) announces a series of tuohy borst adapters. These three adapters comprise a PVC body with a Triax® (ABS/nylon) cap. The silicone gasket is chemically resistant, prevents backflow of fluids and secures the position of a guidewire or instrument when closed. These adapters are available with gaskets in sizes from 0.062 to 0.081in. ID.

Linear Actuator

The QLZE / QSZE / QST-KE) modular linear actuator from Nook Industries (Cleveland, OH) has a stainless steel cover band that wraps over the square aluminum profiles – creating an optimal solution to combat caustic wash-down issues. The stainless steel housing also protects the aluminum profile from exposure to damage due to clogging and pitting; thus protecting the deep structures of the extrusion and extending the system’s life. In addition, the stainless steel design requires no bellows to cover the extrusion which typically wears out over time. The actuator is suited for pharmaceutical/medical, clean room, food/beverage, packaging and petrochemical applications.

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.
