SMVector Drives for Pumping Applications

No challenge is too great or single application too small. From industrial plants to OEMs to municipal water and wastewater treatment facilities, Lenze pump solutions are hard at work. Versatile and robust, our industrial drives and controls are cost-effective and low-maintenance. Our focus is on variable speed flow and pressure control so whatever your specific application requires, Lenze has the drives and controls to match form, fit and function.

Centrifugal pumps
Centrifugal, or Variable Torque pumps, are used in a wide range of commercial, industrial and municipal applications. Throttling valves are a common flow control method. Compared to a throttling valve, the lower power requirements of the SMVector VFD provide a greater energy savings. Operating at 75% flow reduces power demand by over 50% with an SMVector Drive, while a throttling valve requires about 90%.

Typical applications
•Chilled and Hot Water Pumps
•Condenser Water Pumps
•Booster Pumps
•Potable Water Pumps
•Chemical Pumps

Constant Torque pumps
Most Constant Torque pumps are also referred to as Positive Displacement (PD) Pumps. Using a VFD in these applications eliminates waste as the VFD tightly controls the volume pumped. While most VFDs are close to 100% starting torque, the SMVector Series offers 200% starting torque, allowing you to overcome the initial load. As a result, you can decrease the size of motor you are using, thus reducing the cost of the application.

Typical applications
•Metering Pumps
•Dosing Pumps
•Pumping highly viscous fluids or highly frictional loads
•Gentle fluid handling

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.

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’s BL Compact Family Collects Analog and Digital Signals at the Source

TURCK’s BL Compact system is a revolutionary modular I/O solution for collecting a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, machine-mountable device over DeviceNet™, CANopen and PROFIBUS ®.

Up to two signals types can be combined in any combination in the BL Compact system, including RFID and analog, digital and serial—and more. The BL Compact system may be customized to suit a user’s specific needs, so that devices may be added to an existing network and signals may be gathered on the machine without an enclosure. This drop-in solution can be used to connect up to 16 devices—drastically reducing the time it takes to run wires for each device back to the control cabinet and the potential for wiring errors.

The BL Compact system is currently available with four, eight or 16 ports i…
