BB has won “Contribution to Skills and Training” at the annual Motion Control Industry (MCI) awards. The prize


(continuous professional development) accredited. Targeting end users, contractors, consultants, machine builders and OEMs, the courses aim to improve engineering expertise, tackle technical challenges and improve operational knowledge of applying variable speed drives and motors. ABB’s courses have upskilled thousands of engineers,

managers and apprentices from a diverse range of industries. Trainees can choose between eLearning, hands- on training sessions at a site of their choice, or courses at ABB’s bespoke training school in Coalville, Leicestershire. For more information on ABB training courses, or to book, visit:

NF’s new FK 1100 three-diaphragm liquid pump is one of the most advanced solutions on the market

for transferring liquids at high flow rates gently with low pulsation. With a flow rate of up to 12 litres per minute The pump

has only one inlet and one outlet, despite having three diaphragms working inside. These are offset at 120° to each other while connected in parallel, which results in very low pulsation and minimal shear forces. Intensive testing has proven that the pump easily achieves pulsation values below 200 mbar at the inlet and outlet. This permits the new pump to convey liquid very gently and to protect fragile elements of the media. It has a highly durable and robust design with a die-cast aluminum housing and high-torque motors that provide continuous operation with up to 6 bar back pressure, even at this high pressure, the pump delivers an impressive 8 l/min.

Further advantages of diaphragm technology include

the use of elastomer diaphragms, which remove the risk of contaminating the media in the pump and allow almost any type of liquid to be conveyed, including corrosives. The pumps are self-priming with 4.5 mH2O suction height, and able to run dry which reduces the need for additional equipment. Versions are available in a variety of carefully

selected materials, for example with NSF certification for food applications, or elastomers with higher chemical resistance. Customers can also choose between different drives, such as brushless DC or single-phase AC motors. The speed of the brushless DC motor can be controlled using analogue or digital PWM signals, permitting lower flow rates if necessary.

KiDAQ, a unique, modular data acquisition system

at Sensors & Instrumentation Live Industrial cameras with fast interfaces T

he 16 new compact industrial cameras (BVS CA) in the Smart Vision Solutions line from Balluff give you great flexibility in image recording and high transmission speed of image information for mastering even highly

complex inspection tasks. They are available with a monochrome or colour image sensor and for fast data transmission with optional GigE-

Vision or USB3-Vision interface. Programming is according to the GEN<i>CAM-standard (Generic Interface for Cameras). These compact cameras can be efficiently used in either of two ways. Either by access using common image

editing software together with a separate industrial PC for data processing, or using the external SmartController from Balluff that runs the proven Balluff BVS-Cockpit software. With these industrial cameras the user benefits not only from perfectly resolved and tack sharp images, but also from a very high data transmission rate. The data results are passed from the controller via a freely definable interface to the control system through the

standard interfaces TCP/IP, TCP UDP or PROFINET. A clever interface concept ensures correct addressing and distribution of the information: if needed, with just the click of a mouse the process network - the heart of any automation company - gets only the most important information, whereas data and images, e.g. for quality services, find their way over a fast Gigabit Ethernet network. The web-based product access enables remote access even from distant production facilities.

n Stand 11 in Hall 2 at Sensors & Instrumentation Live at the NEC on 25 & 26 September, Kistler Instruments will

be showing KiDAQ, a new, modular data acquisition system. The modular design makes virtually unlimited channels and distributed systems a reality whatever the application; industrial, laboratory, permanent and mobile applications. Engineers will have everything needed to complete any measuring task: a single integrated system that can be flexibly expanded at any time by adding more measurement modules and sensors. The new data acquisition system can be configured to

suit any application with a choice of portable and 19 inch rack housings that can accommodate up to 13 measurement modules each, and DIN Rail modules for industrial installations with any number of measurement modules and other components of a system. This flexibility allows users to configure a data acquisition system that best meets their current needs.
