This is without doubt the most complete vision system on the market. Already at top performance levels for speed, resolution, stability and the range of software tools, the XG-7000 Series can now also be programmed in a PC environment. The calculating power is located in a controller dedicated to image processing and not in a PC, thus avoiding problems of overloading and maintainability. This vision system combines flexibility, stability, and performance with simplicity. It can be used by all, for all applications.
The PC-based, explosion-protected operating systems from the Open HMI series can now, on request, be fitted with innovative 15" displays that reduce glare and reflections to a minimum. The displays of these models can be read easily even in bright sunlight, since a filter pack effectively diverts even strong incoming ambient light. The new solution is based on a very effective combination of polarisation filters placed on top of and behind one another in front of the display.
The C151 z-a series attracted a great deal of attention when it was introduced at the latest AEROMART show, held recently in Toulouse. With its autosensing capability, this marking machine is particularly targeted at the aeronautics industry, offering good repeatability and traceability.
SOURIAU’s black Zinc Nickel version enables users of industrial and aeronautical equipment to comply with the latest RoHS directives. It can guarantee the same electrical and physical characteristics as the cadmium solution, particularly in terms of salt spray resistance (500 hours). In addition, an RoHS Zinc Nickel 851 connector can be mated with a cadmium connector without generating a galvanic couple; the same is true of accessories such as adaptors.
To meet the growing demand for small waterproof connectors for on-board railway equipment, SOURIAU has developed a special connector: the SMS IP. Designed to meet railway standards, the SMS IP combines compactness and safety: IP 67 sealing, operating voltage up to 500 V and compliance with the most demanding fire and smoke standards. SMS IP is intended for on-board applications such as lighting, door controls, detectors, air conditioning programmes, the SMS cabs etc..
Machine and plant engineering companies are increasingly relying on failsafe components to fulfil the safety requirements specified in the current version of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. The safety sine/cosine rotary encoder RVK58S is an ideal choice as it also allows the position of the motor rotor to be detected with the highest accuracy levels.
Westermo Data Communications have announced that many of its industrial communications products now comply with international industry specifications. The approvals, which include ATEX, DNV, Industrial IT, UL and CSA, have been applied to a range of Ethernet extenders, switches and media converters. The ATEX and DNV approvals enable the products to be applied in potentially explosive atmospheres and onboard marine vessels. The industrial IT approvals enable seamless integration with ABB products. The UL and CSA approvals enable the products to be used in North America and Canada.
