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.

Brushless Torque Motors

Allied Motion (Buffalo, NY) released the Megaflux MFH170i series of 170-mm (6.7-in) diameter housed brushless torque motors. The series is comprised of the 170 series brushless torque motor, a digital servo drive, and a programmable optical encoder integrated into a rugged machined aluminum housing with duplex bearings. The motors feature a 63.5-mm (2.5-in) large-bore through shaft. Three stack lengths are available, with peak torque ranging from 8.5 to 16.9 Nm (75 to 150 lb-in), and rated speed to 1000 RPM. The standard winding voltage is 48V. The motors are designed as rotary actuators for use in semiconductor equipment, automated test equipment, scanners, gimbal systems, and applications requiring a rotary actuator with a large hollow shaft.
