NSI Industries, LLC recently announced the introduction of the NPDB Series of Power Distribution Blocks (PDBs), providing a safe, convenient way of splicing and tapping power conductors.

 

 

 

Emerson has improved AMS Machinery Manager predictive maintenance and analysis software with new visibility tools and mobile access to help users more quickly identify and act on machinery health issues anytime and anywhere. New integration between AMS Machinery Manager and the Plantweb™ Optics asset performance platform enables automated workflows—helping maintenance and operations teams focus on exceptions to make better decisions faster.

 

 

 

Balluff’s new generation of high-precision inductive factor 1 sensors accurately detect ferrous (iron-based) metals like steel and non-ferrous metals like aluminum and brass at the same rated switching distance. Typical inductive sensors have a reduced range for non-ferrous metal, requiring a correcting factor to calculate their switching distance. Not so with Factor 1 sensors; they detect both types of metal with no correction factor needed.

 

 

 

Metrol limit switches provide precision, repeatability and a long service life. Four new types of Metrol precision limit switches are now available from AutomationDirect.

One of Canada’s largest wastewater treatment plants at Annacis Island provides secondary treatment to approximately 175 billion litres of wastewater every year for over 1 million residents in 14 municipalities. After almost 20 years in operation, the variable frequency drives supporting the critical pumping systems for the primary treatment and secondary treatment facilities had to be replaced to ensure that the plant’s high operational availability and reliability will not be compromised in serving the plant, the surrounding municipalities and the environment. Metro Vancouver Regional District chose to deploy Rittal’s enclosure and power distribution solutions with E-plan software to efficiently support vital infrastructure improvements by reducing equipment replacement times and thereby minimizing risk to plant operations.


The Friedhelm Loh Group is taking over IoTOS, enhancing Industrial IoT like never before!

Friedhelm Loh Group“Data is the new raw material”, Dr Friedhelm Loh said back in 2016 when laying the foundation stone for Rittal's new factory in Haiger. The world’s most advanced automated and digitally integrated production of small and compact enclosures is currently being started up and already generating 18 terabytes of data every day. Furthermore, today Rittal, German Edge Cloud and IoTOS are now offering the first real-time comprehensive solution for edge cloud-based data management and data availability along the entire supply chain, from usage via intelligent analysis and to secure and customer-controlled data transfer in a highly efficient overall environment.

Schunk: Magic of tombstones and pyramids

SchunkAt first glance unspectacular – but on closer inspection more versatile than virtually any other clamping device: tombstones and clamping pyramids are have regarded as somewhat mystical, probably because they also change their appearance from machine to machine. When used carefully, they multiply the number of workpieces in the machine room and thus offer ideal preconditions for reducing idle time and catapulting the unmanned machine running time upwards with high flexibility – provided that the clamping devices are carefully matched to this.
