Zero-backlash spring engaged brakes for power transmission apps

Zero-backlash spring engaged brakes for power transmission apps
Nexen Group has announced the release of the ZSE brake family, zero-backlash spring engaged brakes. Suitable for holding applications, the pneumatically-released ZSE brake offers high torque, high speed and zero backlash. Unlike brakes using leaf springs to transmit torque, the ZSE brake is zero-backlash up to 100% of its rated holding torque.

Statistical data feature enhances plant management software

Version R4.01 of its Plant Resource Manager (PRM) software tool has been released by Yokogawa Electric. It can centrally manage large amounts of data from plant monitoring and control devices as well as manufacturing equipment. PRM R4.01, an upgrade to R3.31, has been significantly enhanced with a new function that provides statistical data needed to identify the overall status of the devices in a plant.

Servo controller gets single-cable connection

Servo controller gets single-cable connection
Available in the UK through INMOCO of Daventry, the Kollmorgen S700 servo controller is now supplied with a single-cable motor connection, as are all Kollmorgen drives. The benefits of connecting drives using just one cable are obvious in machinery and plant construction: they include faster installation, space savings, reduced inertia, and lower costs to name but a few.

Multiway modular RCD/RCBO panel shows the way to building renovation

Multiway modular RCD/RCBO panel shows the way to building renovation
When it comes down to building renovations, the FDB 2 multiway modular RCD/RCBO panel, is the only thing you need to worry about as it is suitable for upgrade and maintenance projects in the commercial/industrial sphere. This modular range of general purpose earth leakage protection units comes complete with overload and short circuit protection. (It is also approved by Network Rail for use in DC Electrified areas).

Active and passive filtering techniques for harmonic mitigation

Active and passive filtering techniques for harmonic mitigation
The rise of non-linear loads in industrial environments over the last two decades has resulted in the growing problem of harmonic currents and utility-level voltage distortion. Facing a lack of awareness, the industry has struggled to implement effective mitigation techniques. Here, John Mitchell, business development manager of CP Automation explores active and passive filtering.

Blending into the background while controlling odour

Blending into the background while controlling odour
Designed so that it is virtually invisible in its surrounding rural landscape, a low-profile sludge thickener has been produced, and in addition, odour control has been built into the design so the many weekend visitors who come to enjoy the natural beauty of the area hardly notice it. Sludge thickening is a universal requirement of modern foul water treatment works and there are many standard thickeners available. However, at some installations there is a need for a thickener built to a bespoke design that addresses the particular issues of the site.

Higher torque-to-inertia ratio for precision gear unit system

Higher torque-to-inertia ratio for precision gear unit system
The TwinSpin high-precision gear unit range from Spinea has been expanded with a new generation version of its integrated radial-axial bearing gear reducer which offers significantly improved performance. Following a re-design of the main bearing system and implementation of advanced manufacturing technology, the new TwinSpin G series has much reduced bearing friction and hysteresis for lower lost motion.
