Schweitzer Engineering Labs' SEL-751 feeder protection relay is designed to let the user intuitively navigate to folders and applications with the tap of a finger and the appropriate security credentials. On the 800 × 480 pixel WVGA display, view custom bay screens that exhibit one-line diagrams, analog quantities, and digital statuses, created using the Bay Screen Builder tool in Acselerator QuickSet SEL-5030 Software. With the appropriate access level, users can control a single breaker and monitor up to five disconnects directly from the bay screen. Simplified navigation and information-rich displays make applications like comprehensive feeder protection simpler and easier to set and monitor. In either English or Spanish, users can review phase quantities in graphic and tabular formats. Scroll through the sequential events recorder (SER), or examine an event summary. Program the auxiliary buttons to navigate to a particular screen, or set your display to rotate through as many as 16 different screens. This relay will provide years of reliable service with its operating temperature range of -40 to 85°C (-40 to 185°F), and conformal-coating option.  Schweitzer Engineering Labs (SEL) www.selinc.com  - Edited by CFE Media.

EPLAN's Cogineer is software package that generates schematics automatically and is designed to be a deployable tool for occasional users and power users alike. Expert knowledge about configuration or variant management isn't required. A mechatronic rulebook and configuration interfaces can be put together without knowledge of any high-level programming languages. Cogineer can generate complete electro-technical documentation, which is designed to ensure error-free implementation of all defined rules and structures, guaranteeing high quality documentation and potentially shortening the entire order fulfillment timeline. Cogineer is integrated into the EPLAN Platform, which allows users to create project data in another ePlan program and then generate the schematics using that data in Cogineer without any duplication.

Hardy Process Solutions' Dynamic Checkweigher is a fully automated system designed to weigh items automatically in-motion and automated control is done with an embedded programmable logic controller (PLC). Courtesy: Hardy Process SolutionsHardy Process Solutions' Dynamic Checkweigher is a fully automated system designed to weigh items automatically in-motion. The Checkweigher controller can communicate both upstream and downstream across the Connected Enterprise Network. Automated control is done with an embedded programmable logic controller (PLC) while communicating with the Hardy HI 4050CW check weighing controller. The checkweigher system can process between 20 to 350 pieces per minute. Each Checkweigher has a stainless steel base and cabinet, for maximum durability and easy washdown. Flexible and highly accurate, it weighs products of virtually any shape or size in containers such as boxes, cans, bottles, rigid shrink-wrapped packages or flexible packages.

The Fluke 1732 and 1734 three-phase energy loggers are designed to identify sources of electrical energy waste. The loggers capture key measurements such as voltage, current, power, power factor, and temperature to enable managers to understand their energy usage and correlate it to their activities. The loggers are also Fluke Connect compatible and data can be viewed via the Fluke Connect mobile app. With the Fluke 1732 and 1734, facility managers and electricians can perform energy studies over a range of electrical power and energy parameters as well as current-only load studies. The Fluke energy loggers measure all three phase conductors with included three flexible current probes. More than 20 separate logging sessions can be stored on the instruments and all measured values are automatically logged to retain measurement trends. They can be powered by the measurement circuit, which eliminates the need to find a power outlet and run power cord extensions. They can also be set up completely in the field through the front panel, which eliminates the need to return to the workshop for download and setup or to take a computer to the electrical panel as data can be downloaded directly to USB memory stick or via local Wi-Fi.
