Multiple Pump Control Meets UL 913, 6th Edition

SymCom, Inc. has introduced their ISS-105 IS Super Cell, a "smart," five-channel, intrinsically safe, multiple pump controller which meets UL 913 6th Edition (Aug 8, 2002).

Microcontroller-based, the IS Super Cell is capable of performing multiple duties and can operate as a pump controller for eight different pumping configurations where duplex, triplex, quadplex and duplex SPS (separate pump stop) pumping methods are possible.

Its versatility makes it ideal for use in a variety of industries including municipal water, wastewater treatment, chemical plants, manufacturing, mining, agriculture, forest service fire protection systems and other operations that cannot afford to be shut down, or risk the possibility of an explosion or fire caused by unsafe equipment.

The IS Super Cell can indicate low, high and out-of-sequence alarms and has a variable lag pump delay setting. Pumps can be controlled in alternating or non-alternating modes or with one non-alternating pu…

Voltage Monitor Suits Commercial/Industrial Applications

SymCom, Inc., the innovative manufacturer of MotorSaver® and PumpSaver®, is pleased to introduce the latest addition to their product line: The Model 460 Three Phase Voltage Monitor. SymCom has manufactured a quality line of voltage monitors for nearly 30 years. These products protect motors from problems such as phase loss, phase reversal, overvoltage, undervoltage, voltage unbalance, and phase/frequency shift. The Model 460 combines unsurpassed motor protection and control with finger-safe wiring, easy installation, and LED fault indication.

The Model 460 comes standard with four adjustable settings: nominal voltage, restart delay time, unbalance percentage trip point, and trip delay time. When a harmful condition is detected, an output relay is deactivated after the selected time (Trip Delay). The output relay reactivates after power line conditions return to an acceptable level for the selected time (Restart Delay). Fault diagnostics and run conditions are displayed …

Ring Sensors are Available in 3 Different Styles

TURCK Inc. introduces a new expanded line of ring sensors with higher sensitivity, new mounting features, accessories, housing styles and CE approval. The Q style (rectangular) family has grown with the addition of the Q80 (114x80x40 mm) housing. The Q80 style is available with a 50 or 65 mm ring diameter. Just like the smaller ring style sensors, the Q80 is equipped with a static output.

Innovative enhancements to the existing ring sensors provide even more sensing solutions from TURCK. Specifically, the S32 (175x100x32 mm) large ring sensors have been technically improved and now provide excellent adjustable sensitivity. Its modular construction enables both combined and remote installation of the ring and amplifier. With these recent improvements, this sensor now meets CE requirements. Based on modifications to the W30 (70x35x30 mm) mid-size ring sensor, TURCK now offers the W30S housing with enhancements to the existing design. The quick disconnect can be mounted on …

Valve Position Sensors Suit Chemical Handling & Processing

TURCK Inc. has announced a new addition to their growing line of valve position sensors, which have been a part of TURCK's product offering for several years. The original DS20 sensors have provided a quality solution to valve position feedback with several styles to choose from. New market demand has suggested that a variety of sensor styles are necessary to provide solutions across the board. For this reason, we have designed the new DSU35 housing style. This new version was designed with certain markets in mind, such as chemical handling and processing. The DSU35 also offers several advantages in general applications, making it a nice complementary product to the DS20. The new DSU35 is quite versatile.

With a single sensor and target puck, we are able to mount to several different actuator sizes without the need for any adapters or spacer plates. Unlike other valve position sensors, the DSU35 can be used on valve stem heights of 20, 30 or 50 mm with outer mounting hole dimensi…
