Ethernet camera

The TM-1405GE offers a high resolution, 1.4 megapixel CCD camera. The interline transfer CCD permits full vertical and horizontal resolution with shutter speeds up to 1/16,000 sec. Asynchronous reset, combined with a no-delay, pulse-width controlled shutter, provides flexible triggering and exposure control necessary for machine vision applications.

Electro-pneumatic transducer

Converts milliamp input signals to a switch-selectable proportional pneumatic output signal for lower pneumatic supply consumption and reduced operating costs. The i2P-100 combines all ATEX and IECEx approvals onto one nameplate, enabling users that require ATEX approvals to select and mark the protection method (intrinsic safety, flameproof, or type n), upon installation of the unit.

Evaluating bridge and gantry cranes

Properly sized, designed, and installed bridge and gantry cranes dramatically increase production, significantly reduce material handling costs, and substantially lower the risk of employee injury. A properly maintained crane lasts at least 20 yr, could reach 50 yr or more, and occasionally outlives the structure or company originally housing or using the equipment.

Dry guard

Dry Guard bearings feature a unique diamond-like coating, and are designed to significantly reduce the coefficient of friction, enabling longer periods of safe operation under dry run conditions. Dry running can inadvertently occur when a source tank empties or a valve is shut off up stream from the pump.

Windfalls for pallets and bearings

Two industries in our factory operating materials and supplies report are enjoying A+ margin grades. This means the combination of rising product prices and falling manufacturing costs has created an inflation windfall for producers of wooden pallets (SIC 2448), as well as ball and roller bearings (SIC 3562).
