EC Gold Series Motors

The EC Gold series is a synchronous PM motor designed to be a highly efficient, compact package that is interchangeable with standard induction motors. All frame sizes meet NEMA dimensions for ease of installation and retrofitting. The platform is designed to be used with an industrial PM drive while simplifying component replacement compared to similar integral solutions. The synchronous PM design offers excellent speed regulation with no feedback required and maintains high efficiency over a wider range of speed than traditional induction motors. Ideal for applications that require a smaller footprint and quick ROI.

Introducing Two New Draw Wire Encoders

The DW60 & DW120 with integrated inclinometer. Users can now get length and measurement in one device, saving costs. This high strength IP69K-rated offering is ideal for the harsh conditions and outdoor applications found in mobile equipment. Applications include boom extension/retraction feedback and outrigger position feedback. The DW60 offers a measuring length up to 4 m and the DW120 offers a measuring length up to 10 m. Available with Analog & CANopen outputs.

Read up on the DW60 and the DW120 .
The SPAN Pressure Sensor

The pressure sensor SPAN is suitable for monitoring compressed air and non-corrosive gases. The sensor can be used in many branches due to the compact design. The measuring method is based on a piezoresistive measuring cell for relative pressure
measurement. The pressure value is transmitted to the connected control system as a switching signal, as an analogue signal or via IO-Link depending on the sensor variant and selected parameters.

Breakthrough ICS Performance and Economy with Extreme Cybersecurity Built In

Open control via Bedrock Automation optimizes your process at lower cost and with greater simplicity. Bedrock Automation provides free IEC 61131 engineering software and Secure OPC UA which enables you to integrate best-of-breed technologies around your unique business needs.

Since the Bedrock integrated development environment (IDE) is based on CODESYS, an industry-leading IEC 61131 platform, an object-oriented implementation approach is possible. This methodology groups common design elements into functional units, then extends them to provide more specific functionality, virtually eliminating duplicated code throughout the application. As well as leveraging the Global CODESYS Function Library.
