Orlando, FL— More than 100 exhibitors are expected to demonstrate their products and services this week at Rockwell Automation 's Allen-Bradley Automation Fair 2004 , Sept. 27-28, at the Orange County Convention Center. Some of the latest solutions to be exhibited at AB Fair 2004 include:

Acme Electric Corp. is announcing its easy-to-install AE and CE Series encapsulated industrial control transformer, specifically for machine control circuit applications. The company will also showcase its TB Series open-core and coil industrial control transformers, which are used to reduce supply voltages for the electromagnetic devices such as contactors, solenoids, relays and timers. www.acmepowerdist.com

alpha gear drives is showing its new right-angle HG+ gearhead and SP+planetary gearhead family. HG+ gearhead features single-stage hypoid gearing to overcome the limitations of conventional right-angle gearheads, and is an optimal solution for compact servomotor applications such as packaging, converting and flatbed type machinery. SP+ gearhead series features low noise levels, four times quieter than standard gearheads, and is available in gear ratios from 3:1 to 100:1. www.alphagear.com

Ametek Automation & Process Technologies will showcase expanded Catrac and Linear Displacement Transducer (LDT) product lines. Offering superior performance in harsh applications, Catrac steel carrier systems are custom-built to provide unmatched protection to air, water, electric, and data communication cabels. For continuous position monitoring and process feedback, the newest LDT products incorporate magnetostrictive sensing technology. www.ametekapt.com

Belden CDT ’s Electronics Division has expanded its DataTuff data cables by adding new 2-pair and three new 4-pair Category 5e cables. The new cables round out Belden’s comprehensive selection of industrial Ethernet cables, which include DataTuff Category 5e and Category 6 twisted pair copper cables and TrayOptic fiber-optic cables. www.belden.com

Cognex will showcase two new additions to the industrial-grade In-Sight 5000 Series vision sensors: In-Sight 5400C color vision sensor, designed for high-performance color inspection, and In-Sight 5401 high-resolution, created for high-accuracy gauging. Both models are rugged enough for virtually any factory environment and include a unique vision spreadsheet and In-Sight Explorer software to simplify application development and network administration. www.cognex.com

Control Chief offers many variations of wireless HMI security for a multitude of industries. Such products, guaranteeing a level of safety and reliability required in the automation industry, will be on display. www.controlchief.com

Control Concepts will feature its Islatrol, Islatrol Plus and Islatrol Elite active tracking filters.
