TT Electronics' PHS family of rotary position sensors are designed to provide precision sensing in harsh environments and in critical applications where repair costs would be be high in the case of a failure. The hollow shaft single turn position sensors have been designed and built for precision, robustness, and reliability. The rotary sensors comprise three separate series: PHS04, PHS07 and PHS11. They convert angular mechanical position or the motion of a shaft or axle to an analogue or digital electrical signal and are designed for applications that require adjustments to control variable outputs such as position, speed or volume. Characteristics shared by the three series are their dust proof construction and stable output characteristics in harsh environments. A rotational angle of 360-deg is provided and wide operating temperature ranges of up to -40 to 120 °C are tolerated in the case of the PHS11. They can be used in applications such as motor drive units, 3-D printers, HVAC sensors, and medical diagnostic devices.  TT Electronics www.ttelectronics.com  - Edited by CFE Media.

AutomationDirect’s family of potable water solenoid valves are designed for food and beverage applications. Stainless steel or thermoplastic bodies and synthetic seating and sealing materials makes NS series valves suitable for use with a variety of liquids, oils and gases. Valve operation is normally closed and open when electrically energized. The valves can be mounted in any position and a spring loaded plunger assures positive shutoff. Three types of 2-port (2-way), 2-position NS series valves are available. NS201 and NS211 series are piloted diaphragm valves; NS201 series valves can also operate under zero pressure differential. NS201 and NS211 series valves have 316L stainless steel or Noryl bodies and are ported for 3/8, 1/2 or 3/4-in. NPT. These valves are available with 120 Vac, 24 Vac or 24 Vdc solenoids. NS301 series valves are direct acting with an armature that acts directly on the valve orifice to control fluid flow and does not require a minimum pressure to operate. These valves have 303 stainless steel bodies and 1/4 inch NPT ports. They are available with three orifice sizes and solenoid voltages of 120VAC, 24VAC or 24VDC.

Carlo Gavazzi's PD30CN series of photoelectric sensors with PointSpot Beam. The visible red light narrow beam makes detection more accurate and allows detection of smaller objects. The PD30CN series consists of a background suppression version as well as a polarized retro-reflective version, both with a narrow red light PointSpot beam. The sensing distance is controlled by means of a potentiometer on the back of the housing and the adjustment is optimized for easy settings. With this expansion of the PD30 Series, the high-end PointSpot beam eliminates the halo light disturbance and increases detection reliability. The sensors are designed for packaging, material handling, plastics, and machine tool applications. Features include 10.8 x 20 x 30 mm with two M3 mounting holes, NPN or PNP versions, 10 to– 30 Vdc supply, IP67 rating, and an M8-4pin male connector.

Fluke's Datapaq EasyTrack 3 system is a data logger designed to make profiling oven cure of painted and powder-coated products easier. The data logger has a polycarbonate casing that can withstand harsh treatment and heat up to 100°C without distortion and without harm to the electronics. Versions with four or six thermocouple channels are available. Data is stored in a non-volatile memory – the capacity has been tripled to up to 18,000 readings per channel. Calibration certificates stored aboard the logger can be printed anytime. When the logger is connected to a PC (via USB), the software now starts automatically. Reviewing and analyzing the data, users can dynamically change the language. For remote diagnostics, status data can be emailed to the manufacturer’s tech support. The pro version logger carries out up to three consecutive profiling runs before data download to a PC. It features a traffic light indicator that instantly shows whether process criteria have been met. The software includes advanced analysis functions such as rise/fall, peak difference, area under curve calculation, marking of up to six oven zones in the temperature graph, a probe map for high repeatability, saved zooms for even more comfortable reviewing and sharing of data, and customized profile reports.
