PW15iA HBM load cell offers all-in-one solution

its new PW15iA Digital load cell, which offers a flexible and cost-effective solution to a wide range automated applications. The innovative PW15iA load cell from HBM is fully

adaptable and features a range of integrated functions - which include a wide range of algorithms for check weighing, filling and batching – which eliminates the need to undertake these functions separately. This means that development times can be significantly reduced. Compatible with industry standard dimensions (SP4M

footprint), the new PW15iA load cell can also be quickly and easily integrated into existing systems, without any additional construction effort, minimising costly downtime. Featuring an OIML certificate for C3, and a maximum scale division of Y up to 10,000, the new PW15iA dramatically improves speed whilst reducing overall costs, thereby increasing profitability.

Simple and efficient drive operation and configuration N

ORD DRIVESYSTEMS introduces NORDAC LINK field distribution systems, available as frequency inverters and motor starters

for interconnected conveyor systems. They feature manual control switches and maintenance switches for especially easy operation and service access, and are also equipped with PI controllers and an onboard PLC to empower smart autonomous applications. The comprehensive NORD modular product range enables

highly efficient drive concepts for conveying, positioning, and hoisting applications. The product line-up includes IE4 synchronous motors with great energy-saving potential. Users will see significant TCO reductions in such scenarios.

NORD LogiDrive units are engineered to be ready-to-use, especially in large-scale plants with many belt and roller

conveyors. Combining an IE4 synchronous motor, a bevel gearbox, and a NORDAC LINK field distribution system, these systems come in three sizes that cover all typical performance requirements in postal sorting hubs, warehouses, and baggage handling systems.

Curtiss-Wright launches contactless proportional rocker C

urtiss-Wright Industrial division has announced the launch of the JC040, a single-axis, Hall-effect

proportional rocker that is suitable for arduous applications in specialty off-highway vehicles. The JC040 builds on the success of legacy potentiometric

versions available from the Corporation’s brand family of Penny & Giles, and uses non-contacting, Hall-effect sensing technology for long-life integrity of the output signal. The IP67-rated JC040 provides safety functionality via dual outputs – which can be set to positive or a combination of positive and negative ramps – and also benefits from independent supply voltages for each of the outputs.

The JC040 rocker is designed for integration within joystick grips and other in-cab human-machine interfaces; and benefits from a ‘pass through’ design for any liquid or dust contamination. Electronic robustness is assured by sealing of the internal electronics to a rating of IP67.

Belden Demonstrated the Practical Use of “TSN Ready” Switches


elden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, used this year's

Hannover Messe to show that switches supporting Time- Sensitive Networking (TSN) are becoming a reality. Prototype TSN-enabled Hirschmann RSPE35 switches that support this open, real-time Ethernet technology were shown in demonstrators at various booths throughout the show. The Hirschmann RSPE35 devices are existing modular Managed Switches for the top hat rail, which were developed especially for operation at the control level in factory and process automation networks as well as networks of the energy and transport sectors. “These switches provide accurate time synchronization based on IEEE 1588v2. This time synchronization is the foundation of our TSN implementation shown at Hanover Messe” said Dr. René Hummen, senior architect technology and innovation at Belden. With support for VLAN tagging, these devices offer all basic requirements for the implementation of TSN.
