Coming Soon - ZMDI Motor Control Technology – Control and Design for Automotive Exterior Mirror Systems

Demand is expanding for intelligent actuator/motor controllers in industrial, medical, and automotive applications. Often a small form factor and minimal external components are also required. In response, actuator/motor controller ICs with higher levels of built-in functionality, user-configurability, and integrated current and temperature sensing are needed. Many applications, for example automotive, also require safety and diagnostic features, minimized power consumption, and standard communication interfaces.

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

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).

Rigging Kit

AeroGo (Seattle, WA) introduced the Air Caster Rigging Kit that contains everything necessary to move heavy, awkward, or delicate loads using compressed air. The kit is housed in a rugged and lockable storage box, and can be configured to accommodate numerous and varied load requirements in a variety of applications, handling load weights as heavy as 64,000 pounds. The kit uses compressed air through air casters, which distribute the load weight over a greater surface area than rollers or wheels. Load movement is omnidirectional, enabling heavy loads to be placed precisely, even in tight spaces.
