ACS550 stocked 3R irrigation drives, 15 to 200 hp



Easy to use drives that provide reliable pump control are vital to the health of your crops and your bottom line. ABB drives help you protect your investment by safeguarding your system and enabling it to run efficiently to provide the value and dependability you demand. What you choose matters.

Whether you are saving energy or converting power for your well or booster pump, your system requires optimized control. In the event of a pump system failure, minimizing downtime is imperative. ABB manufactures drives in the U.S. and stocks them locally for efficient delivery, and provides 24/7 technical support - because protecting your investment is our priority, too.

Keeping costs under control is important in any industry. You likely realize that diesel generators are only 40% efficient and require continual refueling, which becomes a very expensive solution. When you leverage Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs), you inherently save energy by applying electronic variable speed control to your pumps and pumping systems. For example, on centrifugal pump applications, the power requirement of the pump varies by the cube of the speed. This means when you reduce the pump flow by 20% using a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD), rather than a bypass or valve flow control, you typically cut energy costs in half.

When the drive is commissioned by an ABB Certified Start Up technician, you also benefit from an extend drive warranty.

We understand how important it is for you to have water where and when you need it. This means it’s imperitive to use equipment that can stand up to the elements. ABB’s outdoor NEMA/UL Type 3R rated enclosure eliminates the need for solar shielding, includes a thermostatically controlled heater to protect against condensation, and a surge suppressor to safeguard against transient lightning strikes.

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…
