Festo Compact VG Valves
Focused features at an attractive price
The new individual valve VG Series offers specific features in proven Festo quality at an attractive price. The compact range comprises valves and valve terminals for applications where installation space, weight, flow rate and mounting considerations are important.
Thanks to the wide variety in the modular system, these compact valves and valve terminals cover almost 80% of all applications.

  • Compact design
  • High flow rate
  • Short delivery times
  • Pressure range up to 10 bar

Intelligent Actuator Rotating Joint 2-Axis Wrist Unit
Ideal for reducing costs when 6-axis robot is not necessary
IAI's Unique WU Series Wrist Unit design makes the part light and compact. Equipped with a battery-less absolute encoder as standard, it’s a low cost alternative, compared to 6-axis articulated robots. Ideal for reducing the cost of equipment.

Diagonal approaches and tip swiveling can now be performed with minimum required axis configuration which until now required a vertically articulated robot.

WAGO's JUMPFLEX ® Signal Conditioners and Isolation Amplifiers
Reliable signal adjustment
WAGO's 857 and 2857 Series Signal Conditioners and Isolation Amplifiers not only provide a linear output signal that is proportional to the measured value, they also enhance signal quality for increased machine and system uptime. Designed for easy commissioning, operation and maintenance, WAGO's signal conditioners and isolation amplifiers make everyday tasks easier because their design merges usability with a comprehensive array of functions.

A six millimeter wide housing provides high levels of measurement accuracy and a transmission error of ≤ 0.1 %. The devices have a three-way isolation with a 2.5 kV test voltage, providing a high degree of safety for systems, machines and people. As ground loops are a frequent problem in analog signal transmission, electrically isolating signals is one of the most important functions.

PreciseFlex 400 Sample Handler
Optimized for benchtop laboratory applications
The PreciseFlex 400 is an autosampler developed specifically for benchtop applications where price, ease-of-use, space requirements and safety are critical. This product is available in a four axis configuration with a servo plate gripper for handling laboratory plates from stacks and hotels or in a three axis configuration with a servo tube gripper for handling cylinder shaped samples from a sample rack. 

These servo grippers permit the PF400 to pick up a wide variety of different size samples without using expensive and complicated tool changers. In addition, with servo motors on all of the axes including the gripper, the PF400 provides facilities for collision/drop detection and squeeze force control not found in other autosamplers.

Sensopart FT 55-CM Color Sensor
A smart color sensor bursting with talent
The full-spectrum color sensor FT 55-CM  offers three different operating ranges and a flexible color detection function.  This unique combination of characteristics makes the sensor ideally suited for challenging color detection and sorting tasks.

An entirely new development in generation 4.0 sensor technology, FT 55-CM was designed to meet the exacting standards of digitized industries. It includes an IO-Link interface for remote configuration, data output and monitoring.

The sensor’s switching behavior can also be flexibly adapted to suit the application. The large integrated LCD display and remote configuration via the optional configuration tool SensoIO set new standards in ease of use and connectivity.

Schmalz VSi Vacuum and Pressure Switch
Measures and monitors with IO-Link interface
The VSi electronic vacuum and pressure switch with IO-Link interface measures and monitors vacuum and overpressure in automation and handling systems. Available with or without display, the input and output of parameters is performed via the controller. There are versions with external control and indicator display with copy function allows settings such as switching point to be transferred to other switches.

  • Communication in all standard field bus systems via IO-Link interface
  • Output and configuration via smartphone using NFC technology
  • Switch can be rotated once installed
  • Simple access to service and maintenance information with detailed error messages
