Morgan Advanced Materials has developed the capability to produce complex ceramic acoustic reflectors used in ultrasonic flow meters, drawing on pioneering research carried out in conjunction with Loughborough University, ensuring consistent measurement accuracy over a longer projected lifespan.
Baumer has expanded the successful CleverLevel series with two new variants – the LBFH and LBFI. They are available with two switching outputs, qTeach and a 360° output status indicator. In the same way as their predecessors the level switches are based on frequency deviation technology and are suitable for both hygiene and industrial applications.
NORD DRIVESYSTEMS presents the newly developed NORDAC LINK series field distribution systems. These new AC vector drives and motor starters are in the final phase of field tests. Serial production will commence early in 2017. Coded plug-in connectors for power, communications, sensors, and actuators enable fast, safe installation and commissioning. LEDs that indicate switching states, operation modes, and signal states allow operators to diagnose errors directly on site. Maintenance and control switches on the device facilitate plant servicing and system set-up. Designed for flexible configuration, NORDAC LINK drives are especially suitable for conveying applications, but can also be used with other machines and systems. Integrated functionality ranges from rotary encoder support and brake management to PI control and sequence control through an integrated PLC. The drives feature a high overload capacity. They enable very precise control of either asynchronous or synchronous motors and reliably deliver full torque even at zero speed. Moreover, the drives provide extensive monitoring functions to protect the mains, the motor, and the driven machine. Power supply can be daisy-chained from one drive to the next. This greatly reduces the cabling effort and costs, particularly in complex applications with hundreds of drive axes.
Eplan Education, the training concept for schools and colleges, includes software solutions in the areas of electrical, fluid power, ICA and control cabinet engineering. Previously limited to 25 slots, Eplan Education Campus now has an expanded network licence with 300 slots. The licence is made available on a central server and can be used across institutions around the entire campus. This provides education facilities around the world the opportunity to fully train on the software.

Whenever a risk emerges in the workplace, it often takes a long time to order and wait for new safety signs that can warn co-workers about danger and instruct them on how to avoid an accident. By using a professional safety sign printer and software, companies can design, print and implement new signs a lot faster in order to support their Go for zero programme and avoid workplace accidents.
