Hitachi Introduces High Performance AC Drives


http://www.clrwtr.com/Hitachi-SJ700.htm

Hitachi America, Ltd., Industrial Systems Division, today announced the introduction of the SJ700 Series of inverters. The SJ700 significantly expands on the performance, capabilities and functions of its predecessor, the SJ300.

Hitachi reasserts its technological leadership with an improved sensor-less vector (SLV) control algorithm that enables the SJ700 to develop more than 200% starting torque at 0.3 Hz. The SJ700 can develop 150% torque at 0 Hz, ideal for vertical lift applications, using Hitachi’s unique “0 Hz Domain” open-loop control mode. Hitachi has also greatly simplified the auto-tuning process, making commissioning trouble-free.

A noteworthy enhancement in the SJ700 is Hitachi’s EzSQ (Easy Sequence) built in programming function. It’s like having a PLC built into the inverter! In many cases, the need for a separate PLC can be eliminated. The program is developed on a PC and then downloaded to the inverter using the simple to use EzSQ software provided at no charge.

The SJ700 also incorporates true servo-like position control, offering a low-cost motion control solution. Mated with a general-purpose induction motor with an encoder, the SJ700 is given a position command, speed command, and acceleration/deceleration times. The shaft will move from position A to position B following the defined profile and then maintain the shaft in servo lock status.

Hitachi has also packed many new features into the SJ700. Features such as, but not limited to include, patented micro-surge voltage suppression (to protect the motor winding insulation), advance trip avoidance functions, configurable sink/source logic on I/O, built-in dynamic braking circuit in models up to 30 hp (22 kW) and built-in EMC filter up to 75 hp (55 kW), have been added.

The SJ700 also includes anticipated features, such as built-in RS485 Modbus/RTU communication, and options for other communications networks, such as Ethernet Modbus/TCP, DeviceNet, Profibus and LonWorks. The SJ700 can be configured via the front-mounted keypad or using Hitachi’s ProDrive PC-based software.

The SJ700 carries CE, UL, cUL and c-Tick marks, and is RoHS compliant, exemplifying a true global product. The SJ700 series will be released in stages, with the 250 hp to 500 hp ratings currently available. Other power ranges from 200 hp and down will be released later this year.

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…
