Buttons and Indicators

Banner Engineering, Minneapolis, MN, released the S22 Pro Series of multicolor touch buttons and indicators for use on machine panels, cabinets, and in other industrial control applications. They feature an illuminated flat surface and utilize RGB technology to produce multiple color options in each device with no programming required. The touch buttons resist false triggering caused by the buildup of detergents, oils, and other materials, as well as direct water spray. They require no physical pressure to operate and are activated by a bare or gloved hand.

Portable Power Unit

Larson Electronics, Kemp, TX, released the MPD-480.3P-112.5KVA-240.208.120-4X60A portable power distribution unit that steps down 480V three-phase primary voltage to 240/208-120V three-phase. The system is mounted on a cart equipped with portable features for transportation. Once the voltage has been stepped down from 480V, it is passed to the secondary side of the transformer, which features four watertight IEC 309 pin and sleeve receptacles that allow operators to connect 240V, 60-amp devices. Customization includes cords (length, type, and cord cap), voltage, phase (single or three), wiring configurations, panel types, breakers, receptacles, mounting systems, and materials.

3D Design Software

Frustum, Boulder, CO, offers GENERATE® interactive generative design software that allows engineers to interact and iterate in real time with generative design models. The 3D design software enables users to interactively specify the functional requirements of their design, and the design will automatically be modeled to meet those requirements. The design output is functional and does not have to be remodeled in CAD. The Windows-based software features native CAD file import, real-time FEA, single- and multi-body optimizations, and standard and user-defined material library.
