Motorized Potentiometers

The MR267 motorized potentiometers from Micronor (Newbury Park, CA) include a current loop controller (CLC) option that remotely controls the potentiometer and/or rotary cam switch via a 4-20 mA current loop, 0- 2.5 V input, or external potentiometer. The CLC option can be specified for any of the company’s line of modular motorized potentiometers, cam timers, or rotary limit switches. Rotary limit switches are programmed via cams to electrically control events or provide status at pre-stages.

Motor Control Center

The Square D® Model 6 Intelligent Motor Control Center from Schneider Electric (Palatine, IL) enables real-time monitoring and remote control of motor functions for industrial facilities. Motor protection features of Motor Logic® Plus II overload relays provide the capability to customize protection levels. With Transparent Ready® built-in data communications, the relays allow facilities to monitor or control motor functions remotely. A trunk and tap cabling system eliminates the control wire bundle, and mechanically protected, micro-style connectors protect against harsh industrial applications.

Thermoplastic Insert Couplings

R+W America (Bensenville, IL) has introduced the SERVOMAX TX1 series of molded thermoplastic insert couplings that are suitable for pump drive and servo applications. The couplings are chemical-compatible and tolerant to heat, and have an elastomer element that is press-fit between two molded coupling halves, providing zero backlash and concentricity. The elastomer insert is available in various shore values. The TX1 series is designed for a pure keyway connection and is bored to customer specifications. Shaft mounting is achieved via keyway and a set screw. Sizes are available for torque capacities ranging from 2 Nm to 660 Nm, and bore diameters from 8 to 45 mm and 0.375 to 1.75".
