Delta, a global leader in power and thermal management solutions, announced today it is demonstrating, at Hannover Messe 2017, its expanded spectrum of energy-efficient solutions and its deep track record in system integration to nurture the competitiveness of low-carbon sectors such as e-mobility, smart factories, sustainable buildings, green power plants and more. The 150kW DC Ultra-Fast EV Charger, currently offering reduced charging times by close to 35% to EV drivers in Western and Northern Europe; the new Integrated IIoT, Automation and Robot Workstation live demo for smart manufacturing; and the newly-launched wireless charging system for electric forklifts represent the high diversification nature of Delta’s showcase this year at the world’s largest industrial fair.
The Standard for I4.0 Solutions: The new Ethernet IO modules from Pepperl+Fuchs support all common Ethernet protocols, such as PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, and EtherCAT, in a single device. The integrated IO-Link master function allows comprehensive diagnosis and parameterization. The L-coded M12 power plug provides a current of up to 16 A and reduces installation costs. Modules with an integrated logic function can tackle autonomous applications, completely replace control panels, or deal only with status messages. As such, these fieldbus modules form the foundation for Industry 4.0 solutions.
For years electrical switching devices for hazardous areas have been a focus for Pepperl+Fuchs. For Hannover Fair the portfolio for electrical explosion protection has been significantly expanded and updated.
WILSONVILLE, Ore. – April 12, 2017 – FLIR Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLIR) introduced today two high-speed, longwave thermal cameras for science and research applications, the FLIR X6900sc SLS and FLIR X8500sc SLS. Shown today at the SPIE Defense and Commercial Sensing convention in Anaheim, California, both cameras provide the faster frame rates, shorter snapshot speeds, and wider temperature ranges needed for the most demanding scientific research applications.
voestalpine Metsec plc, the UK’s largest specialist cold roll-forming company providing products for the construction and manufacturing industries, has opened a Dubai office as part of its expansion programme in the Middle East.
In September 2017, the recently introduced NORDAC LINK series of field distribution systems will be further supplemented by frequency inverters for motors rated up to 7.5 kW. With these additions, the new series from NORD DRIVESYSTEMS will then comprise a comprehensive line-up of drive solutions specifically tailored to networked conveyor systems with many drive axes. The new size 2 systems will be deployed wherever smaller drives do not suffice and extra power is needed – for instance, in inclined conveyors, hoists, or long belt conveyors.
If we are to believe what experts from the CTBUH (Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat) are telling us, the future of building technology is going to rise to new heights. During the next ten years, the number of buildings over 200 meters tall is forecasted to double, and by the year 2020, the number of skyscrapers over 600 metres will surge from two to ten. The estimation made by the CTBUH is further supported by the clear megatrend to urbanisation throughout the world. At the same time, the market for high speed lifts is growing enormously. Meanwhile, safety standards for lift design and operation are continuously being raised. Starting on 1 September, the EN 81-1 and EN 81-2 norms for lifts will be replaced by EN 81-20 and EN 81-50.
