Balluff power supply for wind energy equipment

Just in time for the Hanover Exhibition Balluff introduces a new, intelligent, energy-saving power supply especially for use in wind energy equipment. The semi-potted device with an efficiency rating of 93% is designed for high shock and vibration loads and an extremely long service life of nearly 20 years with a MTBF of 800,000 hours. A key feature: this is the first power supply which can be connected directly to the generator voltage without need for an intermediate transformer. Also completely unique are the optical indicators which display the status and condition of the unit. Since it tracks dynamic loads, it can be operated continuously even under high load conditions. This makes reserves of from 30 to 50% no longer needed.

The new EMCO VERTICAL VT 250 in two additional versions: Vertical Turning machine with integrated automation in European quality

EMCO introduces the maximum version of the EMCO Vertical VT 250 with driven tools, Y axis and hollow spindle drive. Thus EMCO - in cooperation with EMCO Magdeburg - enlarges its product range with two additional versions of the VT 250: VT 250 M (ISM) with driven tools and hollow spindle drive and the VT 250 MY (ISM) with a Y axis on top. Equipped with a hollow spindle drive instead of a belt drive the new two versions perform with a drive power of 29 kW. The VT 250 MY with Y axis offers a travel of 180(+/-90) mm and can stand any competition - not only in regard to the price.

This is without doubt the most complete vision system on the market. Already at top performance levels for speed, resolution, stability and the range of software tools, the XG-7000 Series can now also be programmed in a PC environment. The calculating power is located in a controller dedicated to image processing and not in a PC, thus avoiding problems of overloading and maintainability. This vision system combines flexibility, stability, and performance with simplicity. It can be used by all, for all applications.
