Two-Piece Sensor Mount
Stafford Manufacturing Corp. has re-leased its sensor mount assembly featuring a two-piece threaded collar that opens for installing or changing sensors. It also allows for fine tune positioning without disassembly and attaches to a machined aluminum base. The sensor mounting collar is secured by two clamping screws that attach to the base but also features two tapped face holes for mounting elsewhere.
The sensor mount assembly is designed for use with optical and electromagnetic sensors. The standard collar and base are manufactured from aluminum and can be made from steel and stainless steel. Other bore configurations are optional.

Grease Caddy Can Be Holstered to Belts
A magnetic mount probe and holster has been added to UE Systems’ Ultraprobe 201 Grease Caddy, providing inspectors with the option of mounting the Grease Caddy directly on a grease gun or putting it in a holster and wearing it on their belt while noting changes in ultrasound level as they lubricate bearings. A magnetic mount with a strong pull allows users to place the probe on different types of bearing housings.
The probe’s sensing elements detect ultrasound and filter out low frequency signals, allowing users to hear bearing sounds while applying lubricant. An additional feature includes a mini spotlight that enables users to see their lube connections in low light situations.

UltraWand Ideal for Nondestructive Testing
The Spectroline AP-800 UltraWand ultraviolet (UV) inspection lamp from Spectronics Corp. features long wave UV illumination in restricted areas, making it ideal for nondestructive testing. The unit’s 8-watt UV tube is located near one end of its anodized aluminum cylinder and positions the UV light where it is needed.
The AP-800 UltraWand is 1 in. in diameter, has a 30 in. reach and weighs 1 lb., providing an alternative to disassembling equipment. The AP-800 plugs into an AC outlet and detects hydrocarbon contamination on interior surfaces that must be 100% clean.

Trace Analyzer Measures Moisture in Gases
Tiger Optics’ MTO-LP-H20 is a trace moisture analyzer designed to measure moisture in hydride gases, such as ammonia, phosphine and arsine. It is ideal for low temperature epitalial applications, specialty gas production and semiconductor compounds. The MTO-LP-H20 detects water down to single digit parts per billion levels in milliseconds. It is calibration free and transportable.
Because the MTO-LP-H20 employs a noncontact measurement technique in which only the light touches the gas, moisture concentrations can be quantified in corrosive and reactive gases.

Love Controls Controllers Offer Two Zones
The 32DZ 1/32 DIN temperature/process controllers from Love Controls offer a semiuniversal input, and each zone offers a single set point with mechanical relay. One of the two outputs may be a proportional 4 to 20 mA output that may be assigned to either zone 1 or 2.
Standard features include independent fuzzy logic, self-tune and peak/valley indication for each zone. Process protection is provided by open sensor protection, shorted sensor protection, input rate of change protection and loop break protection. Options for the 32DZ 1/32 DIN temperature/process controllers include RS-485 serial communication and low voltage operation.

The LTT 621 Features
A Calibration Mandrel
Marmo Meccanica announces the LTT 621, a horizontal, compact, straight belt continuous processing polishing machine for round and flat edges up to 6 cm. The LTT 621 is controlled by a programmable controller in which the operator inputs the radius of the work piece, and a beam automatically finds the centerpoint where polishing should begin.
The LTT 621 also features a calibration mandrel to gauge thickness at an adjustable depth. The mandrel can be adjusted both horizontally and vertically, can rotate 0-90 degrees and can be used to carry out slotting for the drip stone.

InterTech’s Leak Detectors Self-Calibrate and Validate
Two production line leak detectors featuring electronic technology for self-calibration and system validation are introduced by InterTech Development. The M-1075 CALVAL-03 and -44 models eliminate the need to manually check and adjust instrument zero and span, or to manually verify flow measurement through the instrument and entire test system.
An additional CALVAL feature is that the volume of the leak testing circuit remains the same when calibrating as when measuring test parts for leaks. Both models feature compensation for temperature and for test pressure ranging from 0 to 5 bars.

Danaher’s Portescap Reduces Iron Loss
Danaher Motion introduces Portescap Turbo Disc stepper motors, suited for application in the medical, textile, die bonding and variable optical attenuator industries. These motors feature a sinusoidal torque function with low harmonic distortion and low detent torque, as well as static and dynamic accuracy for any position and under any load or speed conditions.
An independent magnetic circuit eliminates the coupling between phases for angular resolution in microstep mode. An optimally dimensioned iron circuit made of SiFe laminations reduces iron losses and provides more torque at high step rates.
