Manufacturing & Prototyping

Driver and Controller

The Tolomatic ACS actuator control solution from Tolomatic (Hamel, MN) is a servo or stepper driver and controller developed for use with electric actuators. The system is ODVA™ conformant for EtherNet/IP™. The electric actuators and control solutions can replace pneumatic cylinders, and can automate manual processes and other axes of motion. Linear motion is created in the desired linear units (mm or inch) using builtin configurations. The ACS servo and stepper drives are controlled from a PLC or master controller via 24 VDC digital I/O, 0-10 VDC or 4-20mA analog I/O, Ethernet, or Modbus RTU over RS-485 (EtherNet/IP or Modbus TCP protocols).

Diaphragm Pump

Gardner Denver Thomas (Sheboygan, WI) offers the 1610 diaphragm pump that provides fast evacuation times for applications where speed is key. Volume flow rate is up to 8.0 l/min, vacuum up to 90%, and pressure up to 2.0 bar. Even when running under full load, the pump operates with a low sound level that remains stable over the entire performance range, making it suitable for devices working close to patients and medical staff. The vacuum pump features quick draw down for reliable measurements when used in laboratory devices. For Free Info Visit http://info.hotims.com/55592-311

Stepper Motors

Nanotec (Feldkirchen, Germany) introduced the SC3518 series stepper motors that feature high torque and EMC properties. The 2-phase hybrid stepper motors feature frame size NEMA 14 (35 mm) and a 1.8° step angle; torque is between 0.18 and 0.32 Nm. The motors are connected via an integrated connector that enables easy cable adaption. The two outer pins of the connector are attached to the motor housing. Together with the shielded cable, this creates a shield connection with excellent EMC performance. The motors are available with a shaft end for openloop or sensorless control, or with an integrated optical encoder NOE1 with up to 2,000 increments/rotation.
