Rotary Table with Electronic Motion Control

Rotation can be a critical motion in many manufacturing processes.  Multiple assembly operations may be required, requiring rotation to access each one.  Perhaps the application needs to index identical items through a repeating process, such as filling or injecting.  Another example would be rotating an object onto another conveyance path or into a workstation.  SMC's well-regarded pneumatic actuator, the MSQ rotary table, now has an electrical equivalent.  Introducing the Series LER Electric Rotary Table.

The LER has a clean industrial design, with an enclosure base for the motor and ballscrew drive, fitted on top with a rotary bearing supporting the work table. The work table's surface features 6 radial mounting points and a toleranced positioning hole.  The shaft axis is hollow, allowing for wiring or piping. 

Actuator and system features include:
  •     3 motor and body sizes
  •     Basic or high precision bearing options
  •     Basic or high torque drives
  •     90°, 180°, or 320° rotation angles (310° for size 10)
  •     360° continuous rotation model also available
  •     24V DC step motors with encoders
  •     3000 mm/s2 max. acceleration and deceleration
  •     420°/s max. speed
  •     Positioning repeatability of ±0.05° (LER) or ±0.03° (LERH)
  •     Write up to 64 step data points to controller, using laptop with software or teaching pendant
  •     Optional programless controller or "step & direction" pulse driver also available

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 E

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs. The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs. Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these p


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.
