NORD DRIVESYSTEMS AC vector drives up to 90 kW have been certified by Underwriters Laboratories of Canada. This is in addition to the existing UL certification for the United States and allows for more efficient drive configuration for the North American market, because the additional line filter that was previously necessary for use in Canada is now no longer required. Users gain various benefits: cost savings, faster wiring, reduced space requirements, and simplified configuration. NORD offers a highly versatile range of drive electronics for all applications and industries, featuring a series of cabinet AC vector drives for motor outputs up to 160 kW and two decentralized inverter lines for field installation with models up to 22 kW. The intelligent controllers provide an integrated PLC, scalable functionality, and flexible interface options.
When applied correctly, Lockout/Tagout reduces accidents during machine interventions by isolating machine energy supply points. Lockout/Tagout Shadow Boards can help to easily distribute lockout devices and padlocks and to communicate procedures and ongoing work permits, maintenance projects and energy isolations.
Berlin – Fluke Process Instruments introduces the Endurance series of high-temperature infrared thermometers. Featuring a stainless steel IP65 housing and galvanically insulated I/Os, these units enable continuous process monitoring of the most demanding industrial applications, including primary and secondary metals manufacturing, carbon processing, and silicon production. Providing a measurement resolution of 0.1 °C, they also meet the requirements of the semiconductor industry. Two models cover wide measured temperature ranges of +550 °C to +1,800 °C and +1,000 °C to +3,200 °C, respectively. They can be operated in one- or two-color (ratio pyrometer) mode. An optical resolution of up to 150:1 allows measurements of smaller objects from a distance.
