Vacon to launch a new AC drive portfolio for OEMs



AC drive manufacturer Vacon will announce a new product family of compact AC drives at the electric automation fair SPS/IPC/DRIVES 2011 in Nuremberg, Germany on 22 November 2011. Optimized for the needs of original equipment manufacturers, the new product range further strengthens Vacon's foothold in this high-volume AC drive market.

Vacon will introduce three new products: Vacon 10, Vacon 20 and Vacon 20 Cold Plate. The existing Vacon 10, available in the power range of 0.25-5.5 kW, has a re-designed user interface and more functionality. The brand new Vacon 20, available from 0.25 to 18.5 kW, is a real workhorse which offers high performance and excellent tailorability. The new Vacon 20 Cold Plate, available from 0.75 to 7.5 kW, shares all the features of the Vacon 20. It is designed to allow OEMs to create the optimum cooling solution for the drive.

"Original equipment manufacturers are an important customer segment for Vacon's growth and success. In 2010, more than 25% of our sales came from this segment. We have seen many times that when our customers succeed in their own fields, we also succeed. It's a question of partnership," says Heikki Hiltunen, Executive Vice President at Vacon Plc.

The new product range has been designed to meet the various needs of OEMs all over the world. Efficient volume manufacturing is possible as the AC drives are fast to install and easy to set up. Also, the products can be modified and tailored to the needs of the customer. The Vacon 20 series incorporates a built-in programmable logic (PLC) functionality which conforms to the IEC61131-3 standard. In addition, the functionality can be extended via optional modules such as a wide variety of fieldbus cards, and tools for easy parameter copying from one unit to another.

 "To me, selecting the right AC drive is more than just selecting the right product. It is also about selecting a supplier with the right attitude, the optimum solution, the best cooperation and the best application know-how, both locally and globally. And I think that in all these respects Vacon creates a perfect harmony," concludes Mr Hiltunen.

Vacon's stand number at SPS/IPC/DRIVES 2011 is 1-420.

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 M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

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.
