Magnetostrictive linear position sensor for explosion hazard areas

Control and shut-off valves are used for oil and gas transmission in refineries and petrochemical plants. The valve position is regulated using the position measuring systems, because they are extremely reliable, especially in very harsh environments. When explosion protection has the highest priority, the new, certified position measuring system BTL7-T500 from Balluff is the right choice.


First NSK academy maintenance tutorial goes live

Following the launch earlier this year of the NSK academy online training platform, the first in a new series of maintenance tutorial modules has now been added to the site. The tutorials show how to use the innovative range of maintenance and service tools offered as part of NSK’s AIP+ Added Value Programme. Providing a guide to best-practice bearing care, the tutorial highlights how the optimised and profitable operation of machinery and equipment can be achieved.


R200 and R201 - The New Optical Sensors for Longer Operating Distances

Mannheim, April 2018: With the R200 and R201 designs, the forward-thinking product design of photoelectric sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs enables applications with longer operating distances. Just like the compact R100, R101, and R103 series, both new products consistently offer all photoelectric functional principles in a design that is now larger and suitable for specific mounting situations. Usability is intuitive and identical across all series—and the standardized IO-Link connection via the latest Smart Sensor Profiles also enables convenient and reliable integration of the sensors.

Control Techniques


Control Techniques’ E300 elevator drives have been selected for a major hospital modernisation programme in Mexico that will eventually see hundreds of new lifts installed across the country. Carlos Silva SA – a Barcelona-based elevator control specialist – won the tender to supply 50% of the elevator control systems required in the first phase of the modernisation programme. After many years of successfully using previous-generation inverters from Control Techniques, they chose the latest E300 drives for this new project.

Product Launch: New SK 02040.1 helical worm gear unit

NORD DRIVESYSTEMS has thoroughly redesigned its two-stage SK 02040.1 helical worm gear unit. The new SK 02040.1, made from high strength aluminium, replaces the previous cast iron product. The one-piece die cast UNICASE housing guarantees maximum strength and rigidity with low weight. In addition, aluminium is considerably more corrosion-resistant than steel and can be further protected with the aid of additional measures such as the highly effective nsd tupH surface treatment.


Major product portfolio expansion in the area of energy distribution: new residual current transformers as well as intelligent AC/DC current transformers

In the field of heavy current measurement, current transformers are essential. Among the important parameters are reliability and accuracy, to guarantee very lengthy service life. A measurement device like this one from Camille Bauer Metrawatt AG, developed and manufactured in Switzerland, normally always needs one current transformer for each conductor, which is why these products are so important.


EPBD is a giant leap for the buildings of Europe

The buildings where we live, sleep, work hold enormous potential in energy savings. We can unlock these opportunities hidden behind concrete, glass and steel – to create huge savings, jobs and better places to live. The revised EPBD is a significant step to unlock this potential.

Drive solutions with reinforced bearings for agitators and pumps

Pumping, agitating, mixing – NORD DRIVESYSTEMS offers reliable drive technology with reinforced bearings and increased bearing spacing for the processing industry. This ensures maximum radial and axial load capacities and a higher service life of the gear units.


Revolution inside

Dunkermotoren continues to develop and refine their product offering with their new BLDC motor design. The BG 65 (S) from Dunkermotoren is probably the most sold industrial DC servomotor with completely integrated motor electronics. With the BG 65/ BG 66 dMove Dunkermotoren launches successor products now.
