Pittman Motors Introduces Online Ordering

Pittman Motors, a division of AMETEK Precision Motion Control, has introduced PittmanExpress, an online system offering customers the ability to order from a standard list of prototype parts available for 24 hour shipment.  The online ordering system allows an engineer to quickly obtain off-the-shelf DC motor products for concept testing while evaluating their needs for an application-specific customized motor solution.

PittmanExpress offers a wide variety of brush DC, brushless DC, and gearmotors available in various frame sizes, continuous torque ratings, and voltages.  Although the PittmanExpress product offering is just a “sampling” of a much wider DC motor product line, the list is extensive enough to help a product engineer quickly test a design concept.

Continuous torque ratings available on PittmanExpress are 0.80 oz-in to 226 oz-in (0.0057 Nm to 1.593 Nm) for DC brush motors; 6.4 oz-in to 880 oz-in (0.045 Nm to 6.2 Nm) for DC gearmotors; and 7 oz-in to 248 oz-in (0.049 Nm to 1.75 Nm) for DC brushless motors.   Continuous output power ratings are available from 2.8 watts to 447 watts for DC brush motors; 0.087 watts to 55 watts for DC gearmotors; and 24 watts to 755 watts for DC brushless motors.  All 3 product groups offer versions with integrated incremental encoders.

After initial concept testing using parts from the PittmanExpress system, a product engineer can work closely with our applications engineers to create a more customized application-specific solution.  Options include optimized motor windings, unique shaft configurations, various bearing systems, output devices such as pinions and gears, special lead wire assemblies, EMI/RFI suppression networks, and various other features.  Customers can discuss an application in more detail with Pittman engineers at 267-933-2105.

Product applications for Pittman motors are diverse and span a wide variety of high- tech industries including medical instruments, laboratory automation, semiconductor manufacturing equipment, laser and optics equipment, or just about any other application where precision motion is needed.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…


TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs.

The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs.

Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these power…
