Operator Panels

for applications with limited space

Exter K10m and Exter K20m

panels have a keypad interface

and a monochrome display.

These panels are suitable

for applications where

machine and process parameters

needs to be viewed

and set. Parameter settings

are facilitated by the numerical keypad, and the six function

keys can be programmed to represent the most frequently

used commands. They have an IP66-rated front

and built-in support for alarm-handling, multilanguage

and recipe management. Communication ports for

RS232/422/485 are also built-in. As an extra bonus for

a small panel like this, you also benefit from an optional

Ethernet connection. This option is suitable when using

the panels in Ethernet-based control and motion systems.

The panels are equipped with monochrome FSTN

displays. They offer a resolution of 160x32 pixels and

240x64 pixels, which enables the use of for instance Asian

and Russian characters. The displays also have dimmable

backlight so that they easily can be optimized for

the surrounding light conditions.

Rail Mounted Terminal Blocks

for wire sizes from 6 to 95mm 2

The 285 Series railmounted


blocks accept all

types of wires from

6mm 2 to 95mm 2 .

The three versions

of the blocks are

suitable for applications

with rated currents up to 232A. These terminal

blocks are suitable for side entry wiring and even larger

cables, which are flexible to a limited degree, can be

connected without a problem. A special feature makes

it even easier: The clamps can be adjusted using one button

in an open condition. Therefore, the user can use

both hands to insert the wires into the clamping position;

at 95mm 2 , a real labour saving enhancement. All

that is required to open the clamping mechanism of the

terminal blocks is a standard hex wrench or a screwdriver

when using the smallest version of the terminal

block. A voltage tap is available that can be fitted into

the jumper contact slot. Using this, the supply voltage

for L.V. and service connections can be tapped

without the need for any additional terminal blocks.

Twistable Cable

in tin-plated copper shield sheath

is a shielded

3D cable. The

individual wires

can withstand

high levels of

torsion. Areas

of application

include both

numerous robotic

applications and non-robotic applications, such

as rotary tables or spindle drives that have to be supplied

with high power levels. In contrast to conventional

braided copper shields, which are counter-wound,

a torsion-resistant tin-plated copper shield sheath is used

with this cable. The forces effected on the cable by torsional

movement are largely absorbed by sliding and

buffer elements between the sheath, shield and insulation.

This prevents early failure of the shield. The outer

sheath material is a high-grade TPE mixture with especially

good wear properties. The cable has already

been tested with more than three million torsion

movements to +/- 270°.

Vision & Imaging

Multi-core systems accelerate

industrial image processing

With the introduction of multi-core technology, an immense

potential is opening up for industrial image processing (IIP)

because expensive high-end server systems can now be replaced

with standard embedded computer technology. Even IIP

systems based on single-core embedded processors can quickly

be converted via software. In this respect, IIP is one of the first

sectors that will develop new solutions using the new multi-core


Increasing computing power and ever more sensitive

digital image sensors, together with falling costs, make

industrial image processing interesting for more

and more manufacturing applications. Accurate and

automatic classification of products, pick & place

applications, automatic selection processes, and integrated

quality checks are also of interest for more

cost-sensitive productions and can improve longterm

quality, minimize defective products, increase

output and increase overall productivity. Already

IIP is found in applications from the sheeting industry

(textiles, steel, paper, etc.) to the automotive

and electronics industry all the way to the food industry.

In future, applications such as recognition of

text on electronic components, measurement and surface

checking of engine blocks or checking that all

the correct furniture fittings are present in their

foil packages, under critical light conditions and

with elements lying on top of one another, will

bring IIP to still more markets.

From a technical perspective, the type of production

process in which image processing takes place is almost

irrelevant, because all the current and future

IIP systems will, in theory, be constructed identically.

Depending on the application, one or more camera

heads deliver line or matrix images from different

perspectives with appropriate lighting to the

IIP computer connected to the higher-level process

control. The modular image processing software uses

various application-specific filters (e.g., sharpening,

finding edges, etc.) to edit and analyze the image

data. This process is very processor-intensive.

IIP does use a so-called expert system that is trained

or optimized for the particular application, but

nonetheless computing power is frequently a bottleneck.

Industrial image processing, multi-core reference


Falling hardware costs and increasing CPU performance

mean that IIP can now be used in applications

in which it previously was either unprofitable or

impossible because of insufficient computing capacity;

for example, in checking mass-produced, inexpensive

goods or in checking especially complex or

organic objects. With the introduction of multi-core

technology, which allows different processes to run

in parallel on a single system, new horizons are

opening up in the industrial market. In this respect,

IIP is a reference application for multi-core technology

in the automation sector, whether through

multi-threading in the case of synchronous multi-processing

with double computing performance or

through asynchronous multi-processing and virtualization

with simultaneous IIP and Soft PLC on one system.

With more CPU performance, even the most complicated

testing tasks can be carried out and a greater

number of parameters can be analyzed and evaluated


Quick software porting

The advantage of multi-core technology-the parallelization

of processes - is a challenge for many applications,

because multi-core technology hardware

development is ahead of software development and

the high computing performance is of little use if it

cannot effectively be carried through to the production

line. In many areas of automation, software

optimized to use the particular advantages of multiple

computing cores efficiently is just emerging. However,

this is precisely these in which IIP profits directly

from the increase in performance: the modular design

of the IIP software is ideally suited for multi-threading,

i.e. the parallel processing of several tasks. The

application-specific filters, for example, can be apportioned

to the two CPU cores and thus the image

processing takes place about twice as fast. Likewise,

it is possible to replace two systems with a single one.

In the past, application developers have had to resort

to multi-processor systems for complex image processing

tasks, implementing two or more server

processors on special server mainboards, which were

prohibitively expensive for more cost-sensitive applications.

However, the software of these solutions, which

were previously too expensive to be widely disseminated,

can be ported quickly, simply and inexpensively

onto comparatively inexpensive multi-core hardware.

Thus, OEMs and users profit directly from

the introduction of multi-core technology through

a shorter time-to-market, low system costs and CPU

performance that is nearly doubled in comparison to

previous single-core embedded processors.

Step Beyond Infinity >>

The Leica M205 C is the world’s first stereomicroscope with a zoom range of

20.5x. This accomplishment, however, was not enough for Leica’s engineers. With

the new FusionOptic Leica makes another step beyond previous limits. In addition

to the increase in magnification, the resolution, too, has been increased to up to 453

lp / mm, which corresponds to a structure size of 952 nm.

The design principle of the new Leica M205 C is based on the exceptional flexibility

of the brain. The microscope assigns a different task to each of the two beam paths:

the right channel contains an image with very high resolution, while the left channel

provides very high depth of field. The brain then automatically gathers the best information

from both sources and uses it to compose one image with very high richness

of detail.

80x42x53.5mm (HxWxD) can be fixed directly to the mobile

machine via an adapter system. With temperature-controlled

window heating, the camera objective

can be defrosted in case of extreme conditions. The digital

capturing and transmission of the image data enable

scaling and free positioning of the camera image.

The image data are on the one hand stored in a UDP/IP

protocol and on the other hand stored as 8-bit Windows

bitmap. The device is fitted with an Ethernet interface

for communication. In contrast to analogue camera

systems, the camera image can be shown on any number

Shadowgraph Camera

with in-built velocity trap

Modern image sensors

have allowed the design of

cameras that will capture

up to 11-million pixel

images with the ability to

shutter faster than 1µs. Integrating

this camera with

an ultra-fast high intensity

spark source has resulted

in a Shadowgraph camera

capable of image quality previously achievable

only with film cameras, yet offering instantaneous

access to data. Control software provides simple adjustment

of imaging parameters and extensive measurement

tools to accurately analyse results. Camera stations can

be arranged in the classic configuration looking

directly at a reflective screen or as orthogonal pairs to

provide valuable 3D data such as the pitch and yaw of

supersonic airflows. A comprehensive triggering functionality

has been implemented in the SIS camera

system enabling it to be interfaced with almost any triggering

device. Applications include aeronautical

engineering and testing of glass.

Colour Sensors

flexible in application

The colorControl line

of colour sensors come

as optical fibre sensors

or as reflex optical

sensors with ranges

from 2 to 1,200mm

and a light spot diameter

of 0.5 to 70mm

for large-area integral

colour evaluations through to colour cable detection as

of diameters of 0.5mm. The reflex colour sensors have

point-focal illumination optics as well as large-surface

diffuse optics, which light up a surface from various angles.

The advantage here is that gloss effects on surfaces

can be reduced or eliminated, which standard sensors

are not able to do. These sensors apply the "true

colour" measuring principle and can reliably recognise

shades of colour in the range of ∆ε=1. Dual-channel

versions are also available. In this case one channel

can be used as a reference while the other channel constantly

observes a colour flow for any deviation. The series

comprises 3, 4, 8, 31 and 250 colour memories

with up to 25,000 colour comparisons per second.

Drives move mining town

in Sweden

At LKAB’s concentrating and pelletizing plants in Kiruna,

drives control pumps, fans, conveyors and feeders

Courtesy of LKAB

Kiruna, a tiny mining town 200 km north of the

Arctic Circle in the northern Sweden is

today known also as a town that is sinking. Therefore,

Kiruna is in the process of being moved to

another location because of the cracks that have

been developed in the mine wall under the town

during its 100-year long history in mining. To

save the town and to provide an international hightech

minerals group LKAB, with access to the

iron ore lying under Kiruna, the town officials have

made extensive plans for relocating the town

centre. LKAB, in turn, has started a major investment

program of 1.1 billion EUR to increase

production capacity for iron ore products in the

region from the current to 30 Mt by 2008.

Reliability and fast service are the keys

High production goals cannot be reached without

reliable and smoothly operating processes. When

LKAB was selecting a drives supplier for their

new concentrating and pelletizing plants in Kiruna,

a vital part of their major investment

program, they knew whom to turn to. During a

period of several years, Vacon has supplied roughly

100 AC drives to control pumps and fans at LKAB’s

concentration plant (KA2) in Kiruna, and the

ventilation system in the tunnels of the mining caves

in Malmberget, 75km from Kiruna. In

Malmberget, some of the Vacon AC drives are

located almost 1,000m under ground. This depth

poses many risk factors to electrical equipment.

Consequently, for the essential task of pump,

fan, conveyor and feeder control at LKAB’s new

concentrating plant (KA3) and pelletizing plant

(KK4) under construction in Kiruna, LKAB has

chosen Vacon AC drives. About 200 air- and liquid-cooled

NXP drives of 690 V will be controlled

via Profi bus. CANbus will be used for communication

with the maintenance system. Commissioning

of the plants will take place this winter,

and the plants are expected to be operational

in April 2008. In mining processes where a downtime

can raise to hundreds of thousands of Euros

per day, the reliability of the equipment is of

utmost importance. The other fundamental issue

is fast service. With Vacon’s subsidiary located

in Sweden, support and service are available

at short notice when needed.

Liquid cooling for demanding environments

Liquid cooling enables the use of cabinets with a

high protection class – this is why the liquid-cooled

AC drives are ideal for the underground excavation

industry, where dust and humidity are major risk

factors. These drives are well suited for locations

where air cooling would be difficult, expensive

or impractical, or where the installation space is at

a premium. The liquid-cooled units, which use

normal drinking water as coolant, have a very

compact construction and a low noise level as no

large fans, additional air conditioning or filtered

ventilation systems are needed. A low noise level

also means a better working environment. An

additional factor that contributed to the choice was

their heat loss transportation. Inconcentrating

and pelletizing plants, the air is filled with coal and

iron ore dust. The liquid-cooled drives make it

possible to transport the heat losses outside the

electrical room without ventilating the room and

cabinets with the surrounding air.

A town driven to a new location

With an ore body of about 4 km long and an

estimated depth of more than 2 km, LKAB Kiruna

mine is the world’s largest, most modern underground

iron ore mine. To date, more than one

billion tonnes have been mined, and the present

main level is at a depth of 1,045m. Mining towns

elsewhere in the world have struggled with the

problem of sinking earth, but in most cases, the

approach has been to prop up sinking buildings

rather than move them. This massive and expensive

move operation of Kiruna, a city of 23,000

people, will take a few tens of years, maybe even

more than one hundred years.

Three-phase Motors

with permanently attached FCs

The three-phase gear motors

come with a motor rating of

0.37KW, complete with attached

frequency converter

(FC) in an aluminium casing

(protection class IP55).

There is no need for the

external cables and fitting

is that much faster. The electrical

connections to the motor are located within the

enclosed metal casing and both the power loss of the

converter and the voltage load of the motor are reduced.

Due to the modular structure of the system, only the relevant

component needs to replaced if the gear unit, motor

or FC becomes defective. The FC works with a cycle

frequency of approx. 10kHz (can be switched over to

16kHz). It is designed for 2-quadrant operation (driving

in both rotary directions). Braking is possible up to

the power rating that corresponds to the power loss of

the motor, with the motor being operated with overexcitation

during braking operation (with overvoltage),

i.e. the motor power loss will be greatly increased

during braking operation.

Robust V-Belt

for aggressive environments

The Predator is a robust

V-belt with high

load capability, specially

designed for use on

problem drives that

need to perform well in

harsh environments

and on demanding applications.

Using aramid

tensile cords this V-belt

has a high shock load

resistance and virtually

zero stretch. This means less frequent retensioning and

increased productivity. A specially treated double fabric

cover provides abrasion resistance that makes them

withstand debris, punctures, slippage and shearing

forces. The outer surface of the double fabric cover is

for harsh conditions

The 8766A series is a family

of triaxial accelerometers

designed for demanding

industrial environments.

Based on Kistler's

PiezoStar shear element

design, the accelerometers

feature a wide frequency

range, low sensitivity to

temperature changes and high immunity to base strain

errors. These sensors are half the size and volume of previous

types, but feature integral hybrid microelectronics.

The very low sensitivity variation over the wide

operating temperature range is combined with high measurement

resolution, over 94dB of dynamic range and

frequency response from 1 to 5KHz on each axis. The

Type 8766A series can be specified with a TEDS interface

and a wide operating temperature range from -54 to

165°C. Its cube design, with threaded mounting holes

on three sides, provides flexibility in mounting for

both calibration and measurement installation. Applications

include NVH testing and structural analysis in industrial,

automotive and aerospace applications.

Direct Drive Servo Valve

with permanent magnets

The combination

of permanent


and electromagnetic


in this DDV result

in spool

driving forces

considerably larger than those that can be obtained by

solenoid coils alone.In operation, the electromagnetic coils

act as ‘switches’ that divert the permanent magnetic

flux paths; effectively acting as an amplifier, but without

drawing additional current from the drive electronics. The

result is that the spool position control is ‘stiff’ and well

able to counter the flow forces that are created on the

spool when the valve is passing high flow rate at high pressure.

In contrast, conventional proportional valves where

high flow and high pressure performance is demanded

face a conflict between ‘stiffness’ and drive current that

cannot always be resolved. The product family covers a

range of rated flows from 1.9 up to 15.1l/min. The dynamic

performance of the valve is largely insensitive to system

pressure, which can be up to 350bar.

able to withstand

far heavier loads

than traditional

ball screws, while

maintaining high

levels of precision

and stability at all

times. This is achieved by transferring the load from the

nut to the screw shaft through threaded or grooved rollers,

which provide stronger contact points than ball bearings,

providing reliability and long low maintenance service

life for machinery. The range consists of the SR

planetary roller screw and the SV re-circulating model.

The SR is a robust steel device, featuring threaded

non-recirculating rollers and a long lead symmetrical nut

allowing a shock-resistant high-load carrying capacity

of up to 12,000kN. Likewise, the re-circulating SV roller

screw offers high positional accuracy and fine resolution

capabilities, with precision and reliability achieved

through its compact 1mm leads, which minimise drive

torque and improve resolution.

Directional Sounder

improves building evacuation speed

The ExitPoint instinctively

attracts people towards

its source in both good

and poor visibility. The

units generate sound pulses

of low, medium and

high broadband noise that

make it possible for people

to identify accurately

the location of the source.

Directional sound is recognised

by a primitive part of the human brain and people

are instinctively drawn to the noise. They can therefore

be aurally directed to the nearest emergency exit,

reducing evacuation times by up to 75% in tests. The

device operates at 24VDC, has five user-selectable power

settings so that it can be optimised to its installed environment.

It is also available with an optional voice messaging

capability that will reinforce the meaning of the

tones to people, advising them that following the

tones they are being led to the nearest emergency exit,

further improving the effectiveness of the units in reducing

evacuation times.

The Sentron PAC3200 precisely acquires

the current, voltage and energy

values of loads in industrial

buildings. The device thus creates

transparency for operators

to reduce energy costs and operating

costs. It is suitable for use

direct in 690-volt industrial systems

and it can take single-phase, twophase

or three-phase measurements. Higher voltages

can also be measured using voltage transducers. Thanks

to the high level of measuring accuracy in accordance

with IEC62053-22, the device can also be used as a meter

for company-internal billing. The active and reactive

energy counter provides further information and the

working hours counter serves as a runtime control for

the connected loads. Integral digital inputs and one output

can be used for control and signalling tasks or for

energy metering (S0). Users can parameterise the device

direct onsite or remotely via the communications interface.

In a higher-level power management system, the

Speed Sensors

10-30VDC voltage rate

In harsh environments

where non contact

speed sensing and

control are required,

for example to control

the slip of AC induction

motors, the

measurement resolution

is usually derived

from the number of gear teeth of the target. Often, the

desired resolution is higher than the diameter of the pole

wheel and the minimum size of the module would allow.

The DSI family of speed sensors seeks to alleviate

this problem through providing speed signals with frequency

16 times higher than the number of teeth of the

original pole wheel. Internally the sensors use analogue

Hall Effect elements, measuring the change of magnetic

field created by the gear rotation. Sinus and cosinus

signals are generated and then processed in real

time to produce two streams of rectangular pulses

with 90° phase shift. The number of pulses resulting from

each gear tooth varies from 4 to 16, depending on

the model.

Pull-Wire Switches

with wire breakage detection

These pull-wire switches are

available in two basic versions

– the ZQ 900 and ZT 900. The

ZQ 900 is a safety emergency

switch, similar to an emergency-stop

switch, which fulfils

the requirements of the

new standard BS EN ISO

13850:2006 by latching in the

emergency-stop position if actuated

and requiring a manual

reset by means of a release

button. The ZT 900 version

has non-latching contacts and is suitable for non

safety-related applications. Both include wire breakage

detection that automatically switches to the ‘OFF’ position

if the actuating wire breaks or is removed. Both

switch ranges can be equipped with a maximum of four

contacts, be actuated from any point of the wire, and

be used as universal command devices. The convenient

location of the reset button on the ZQ 900 allows the

triggering of the safety function to be monitored,

even at large distances.

Connector Jack

with magnetic filter and LED light pipes

The Y-ConJack-31 is a new

RJ45 connector jack for

PCB with integrated magnetic

filter, and LED light

pipes for the function display.

The jack is particularly

suited to industrial

applications such as industrial

Ethernet. The 90°-angled

jack for the THR PCB

is fitted with an all-round optimised EMV shielding

made of nickel-plated brass. The two integrated light

pipes on the left and right next to the mating face lead

the light forwards onto each of the LED light sources

mounted onto the PCB, hence emitting a function signal.

The colour selection is dependent only on the LED

that is used, hence making the jack very flexible for all

applications. The jack is fitted with data contacts and

two additional power contacts. These power contacts

are universally integrated into all components. This

makes costly double wiring superfluous for electrical supplies,

which would have to be protected especially for

raw field applications.

10MHz oscillator, so can be programmed to perform more

custom functional and pattern tests. The hot-swap feature

offers improved test throughput by allowing test

targets to be connected/disconnected from the fixture

without cycling power. 100% backward compatibility

is ensured by simulation of the former DIOS devices. Both

output and input thresholds can be programmed to 1.5,

1.8, 2.5 or 3.3V. The I/O channels are grouped into

blocks of 16 channels and, any number of 16-channel

groups can be bypassed. Up to 10 modules can be

Differential Hall Switch

for position sensing

iC-MZ is an integrated

device consisting

of a differential Hall

switch with back-end

complementary line

drivers. The two integrated

Hall sensors

are set 2mm apart

and sense the difference

in magnetic

field. Magnetic DC fields are not evaluated; this means

that besides the direct scanning of magnetic pole

wheels with an additional bias magnet ferromagnetic

gear wheels can also be detected. The magnetic input

frequencies range from DC to 40kHz. Magnetic DC

fields of up to 500mT are tolerated. A magnetic difference

in signal of 5mT is sufficient to switch the outputs.

The output drivers are RS422-compatible. Their output

characteristics are adapted to the characteristic impedance

of long lines in order to minimize reflections

at the end of the line. With a supply voltage of 24V a

driver current of at least 200mA can be supplied. The

supply voltage ranges from 5 to 36V.

Is there

any way to

break them?

Our pressure sensors are not only marked

by their compact design, but also by their

enormous robustness. They have long-term

stability and are not sensitive to mechanical

stress or aggressive measuring materials.

Their welded stainless steel construction

makes internal sealing elements obsolete.

Almost nothing can harm them.

Characteristics at a glance:

■ Compact design

■ Wide variety of connections

■ Numerous current and voltage signals

■ High EMV protection according to EN 61326 |

Radial Spinner System

for use with cylindrical parts

This radial spinner

system offers the

possibility to apply

neat, uniform bands

of adhesives, lubricants,

and other

production fluids

inside cylindrical

parts between 0.4

and 5” in diameter.

The ability to apply

fluids in neat, uniform

bands make

the system ideal for

processes where

controlled amounts

must be applied inside small cylinders or confined to specific

locations. The system combines a compact air-driven

motor, a low-maintenance dispense valve and an EFD

ValveMate controller. The valve dispenses a precisely metered

amount of fluid onto a spinning disk attached to

the motor. As fluid reaches the disk’s edge it spins off,

forming a neat, uniform band inside the part.

Inspection System

compact desktop solution

The AOI system OptiCon SmartLine was designed as a

desktop system for small volume manufacturing, to

be used as an offline test station or repair station. At

its' core lies a camera-based imaging unit featuring

custom telecentric lens as well as a flexible illumination

concept of different colours and directions. The desktop

solution saves space as the PC is completely integrated

into the main chassis, thus only monitor and keyboard

need be connected to work with the system. Therefore,

it can be utilised at a wide range of positions in the production

process. Despite its compact construction, it provides

a PCB inspection area of 400mm x 300mm.

Profibus Compact Repeater

small size and flexible application

The Profibus Compact

Repeater covers transmission

rates from

9.6Kbit/s to 12MBit/s.

The transmitted signals

are regenerated by the

repeater and resent.

The repeater can be

used for bus extensions,

increasement of the

nodes as well as for

plant extensions. The

operation in MPI networks

is also possible.

Due to the compact

shape, no additional

room is needed in the

cabinet, as the it can

be used instead of

Profibus Connector, or

simply plugged onto a node in the Profibus Network. No

separate power supply is needed. The integrated status

LEDs provide a fast overview on the current BUS status.
