New products among control components include the following.

  • Piab P2010 multi-stage ejector pump—for applications requiring light and reliable pick-ups such as electronics production, pharmaceutical processing and auto manufacturing—is said to be the smallest in the world, at 1.08 in. high and weighing 0.54 oz; working at half the feed pressure of most pumps, saving 50% in compressed air costs.

  • Schneider Electric PowerLogic Series 3000 and Series 4000 Circuit Monitors include reengineered circuit monitors with comprehensive algorithms to analyze wave-shape and disturbance alarm data, telling the user whether the disturbance occurred upstream or downstream from the meter.

  • Weber Marking Systems New high-resolution laser coder puts permanent text, bar codes, and graphics as small as 0.020-in. high on products or packages in wet, dusty, and/or dirty environments, up to 1,000 characters per second at product delivery speeds of up to 1,060 feet per minute.


Tiny PIAB P2010 ejector vacuum pump cuts compressed air use in half.

Piab Vacuum Products introduces P2010, a multi-stage ejector vacuum pump ideal for applications requiring light and reliable pick-ups, such as electronics production, pharmaceutical processing and auto manufacturing. The company believes this product to be the smallest multi-stage ejector vacuum pump in the world, at 1.08-in. high and weighing 0.54 oz. While most pumps require at least 59-87 psi input, the P2010 can generate a vacuum of 24.9 in.Hg at a feed pressure of only 26 psi, reducing compressed air costs by up to 50%. Concurrently, P2010 produces 100% higher vacuum flow compared with other traditional single-stage ejectors on the market, Piab says.
Unlike electric vacuum pumps, ejector pumps do not give off heat, so cooling is not needed. Additionally, small size eliminates the need for rigid mounting, making it easy to install. P2010 also works with a feed pressure of 87-101.5 psi, but this is excess capacity, not normally needed, Piab says.
Schneider Electric PowerLogic Series 3000 and Series 4000 Circuit Monitors provide historical analysis trends and energy, power quality and alarm summaries. Reengineered circuit monitors use comprehensive algorithms to analyze wave-shape and disturbance alarm data, telling the user whether the disturbance occurred upstream or downstream from the meter. These new technologies also can be downloaded to installed CM3000 and CM4000 PowerLogic meters from the web site .

Weber Marking Systems high-speed SolarJet HD vector laser coder prints quickly in dirty environments.


Weber Marking Systems high-speed SolarJet HD vector laser coder provides very high-resolution marking on products and packages found in wet, dusty, and/or dirty environments. Permanent text, bar codes, and graphics as small as 0.020-in. high can be marked on substrates like paper, cardboard, foils, coated metals, plastics, wood, glass, and more. The 50-watt, CO2 laser system is capable of marking up to 1,000 characters per second at product delivery speeds of up to 1,060 ft per min. The SolarJet HD reportedly provides a solution to high-speed marking in conditions where other methods could result in frequent maintenance. It offers a selection of five lenses that allows marking fields from 2.0-7.8-in. square. Suitable applications include food, pharmaceutical, personal care, and beverage industries.

The marking unit integrates with a sealed, stainless steel controller mounted on a floor stand, and meets NEMA 4/IP64 specifications. It comes complete with FlyMark software, which eases message creation. Numerous options—including a chiller and fume/dust extractor—ensure that the system fits into nearly any packaging or handling line.
