Wireless torque measurement at the heart of distribution network

Wireless torque measurement at the heart of distribution network
The evolution of the UK’s power distribution network holds the key to harnessing the benefits of variable power sources such as wind, tidal and solar farms, as well as numerous other distributed power technologies. But connecting these various sources to the network is not without its challenges, and is the subject of research at the University of Warwick, where a test rig has been built to identify the requirements of a suitable power electronics controller. At the heart of this rig and playing an important part in the research is a wireless torque measurement device from Sensor Technology.

Absolute encoders with HIPERFACE boost direct drive feedback

Absolute encoders with HIPERFACE boost direct drive feedback
With the introduction of its SES and SEM absolute encoders, SICK has delivered a motor feedback system with the standard HIPERFACE interface that improves precision and reliability for hollow shaft motors and direct drives. The compact SICK SES70/90 singleturn and SEM70/90 multiturn encoders can be mounted directly on a hollow drive shaft without the need for additional mounting tools.

Measuring torque without slip rings

Measuring torque without slip rings
Made by Sensor Technology, the TorqSense rotary torque sensors are unlike the traditional slip ring transducers. To start wit they use a simple non-contact radio link for collecting real-time torque signals, letting machine builders and control engineers can do away with expensive and temperamental slip ring, therefore simply mounting the sensors and checking the radio connection is all that is required to set up a TorqSense.

Absolute positioning with just one sensor

Absolute positioning with just one sensor
A new generation of positioning systems have been developed by Pepperl+Fuchs that-for the very first time-achieve SIL 3/PLe compliance with a single sensor, making them safe and highly efficient. While previously associated with high cost and time investment, this safety level can now be attained more simply than ever before.

SPS IPC Drives: Safety sensors for operator protection

SPS IPC Drives: Safety sensors for operator protection
Safety systems for the protection of personnel are this year’s hot topic for Contrinex at SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg, Hall 7A, Stand 406. Highlights include the unveiling of two new series of safety sensors, certified category 4 according to ISO 13849-1. Types are available with magnetic or RFID coding, which ensures immunity to mutual interference, and also largely eliminates the risk of tampering.
