Hitachi Introduces the SJ700B Series of Advanced AC Variable Frequency Drives for Fans, Pumps, Conveyors and More.

Hitachi America, Ltd., Industrial Components and Equipment Division, today announced the introduction of the SJ700B Series of Industrial AC Variable Frequency Drives, with full availability in late October. The SJ700B significantly expands on the performance, capabilities and functions of its predecessor, the L700.

To reassert its technological leadership and ensure unmatched performance, Hitachi has broadened the applicability of this new series by incorporating and upgrading many of the original flagship SJ700 features, such as the industry-leading Sensorless Vector (SLV) control algorithm. This algorithm enables the SJ700B to develop 120% of full torque capabilities at 0 Hz in Hitachi's exclusive "0 Hz Domain" sensorless vector control mode, as well as 150% torque at 0.5 Hz in sensorless vector operation mode in most models, which is ideal for a wide range of applications beyond just fans and pumps. Additionally, operation in the closed-loop full vector control mode is now possible as well through an optional board. The SJ700B also has a number of built-in features that make the commissioning process quick and the operation of the control trouble-free.

Another notable upgrade in the SJ700B is the higher operating temperature range of -10°C to 45°C . The SJ700B is loaded with additional application integration features such as Hitachi's EzSQ (Easy Sequence) built-in programming function, which provides the functionality of a PLC built into the inverter. Due to this internal capability, in many cases, the need for a separate PLC can be eliminated or the I/O reduced. Programs for various applications such as irrigation pump control or repeatable motion profiles can be developed on a PC and then downloaded to the inverter with the easy-to-use EzSQ software provided at no charge.

The other new helpful features Hitachi has added to the SJ700B include the patented micro-surge voltage suppression to protect the motor winding insulation, advanced trip avoidance functions, configurable sink/source logic on digital inputs, PID, built-in dynamic braking circuit in models up to 40 HP (30 kW,) and built-in EMC filters in all models. The SJ700B also incorporates features customers have come to expect from Hitachi Variable Frequency Drives. Some of the anticipated features include built-in RS485 Modbus/RTU communication. The SJ700B can be configured via the front-mounted keypad or using Hitachi's ProDriveNext PC-based software. A truly globally accepted product, the SJ700B is CE, UL, c-Tick-certified and RoHS-compliant.

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.

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…
