LG Motion becomes UK distributor for Baumeister & Schack GmbH & Co. KG B

ifting and positioning specialist Power Jacks has introduced a new online engineering tool for

introduced Energy-related Products (ErP) regulations. The Lenze motors are pre-configured, for use by machine builders and OEMs, to help minimise the cost and complexity of correct design, specification and installation – ensuring faster and easier machine building. The latest stage of the ErP regulations, stating that premium


efficiency IE3 class motors must be used for applications above 0.75kW, came into force in January 2017; previously, this requirement only applied to motors above 7.5kW. The primary exception to the new regulation is where a variable speed drive is used, in which case the motor can meet the IE2 class specification.

A precision accelerometer for when it gets really, really cold T

he new Type 8712B high sensitivity, voltage mode accelerometer from Kistler Instruments is designed to operate reliably at

cryogenic temperatures needed by many aerospace applications. With its range of approximately 5g and high 1,000mV/g sensitivity, the new accelerometer is ideally suited to applications involving low amplitude vibrations over a wide frequency range. On large structures, low amplitude vibrations as low as 100 g can be measured accurately and reliably over the long term. Typical applications include microvibration testing in spacecraft, seismic and any low amplitude vibration testing on heavy structures. The Type 8712B accelerometer can be attached to any clean and

flat surface on a structure by a single threaded hole on the base of the sensor. Signal Conditioning & Data Acquisition can be provided by the Kistler LabAmp Type 5165A or any IEPE Compatible Data Acquisition equipment.

introduces new canbus rotary position sensor


ew model expands NRH27x range and offers CANbus J1939 output for specialty vehicle applications. Curtiss-Wright’s Industrial division has announced the

launch of the NRH27C, a non-contact rotary position sensor which is suitable for use on specialty on- and off-highway vehicles utilizing CANbus communications. Developed by Curtiss-Wright’s legacy brand of Penny &

Giles, the NRH27C extends the company’s recently- introduced NRH271 and NRH272 family and shares many similar features and benefits. These include a low-profile sensor body, small footprint, CANbus J1939 communications and a fully encapsulated, IP69K-rated design that offers exceptional performance against water, dust, shock, vibration and temperature. This makes the range ideal for use by OEMs of on- and off-highway vehicles that are destined for use in challenging environments, and as a cost-effective solution for medium volume applications where a degree of customization may be required.
