Switch module

Modules offer up to five positions

Otto has unveiled the TC-3 and TC-4 keypad switch modules. The TC Series is a self-contained, sealed switch module with up to five positions that can be used in a grip, front panel or hand-held device, and is ideal in cursor control or data entry applications.

The advantage of the TC module is that it incorporates keypad functionality in a small footprint, at slightly more than an inch in diameter.

Standard or custom legends are available and can be LED backlit. Standard termination options include flying leads, ribbon cable and flexible flat cable. The TC Series is ideal for construction, agriculture, industrial, material handling, unmanned vehicle and medical applications.

Software and gaging system

Configure simple to complex gaging solutions

Mahr has released the MarWin Millimar Cockpit software and Millimar N 1700 Modules, an interactive MarWin-based gaging software and modular-based gaging system that allow users to configure and implement simple to complex gaging solutions. The system is designed to meet the measurement needs of today's manufacturing environment where speed to implementation, long or short-runs, or quick changeovers are becoming the industry standard.

Both offerings provide the features of a dedicated bench or gaging computer system in a flexible and versatile set of tools that are combined to provide speed and accuracy for a custom or dedicated gaging solution.

MarWin Cockpit software is offered as a stand-alone platform to complement a customer"s existing gage solution or can be paired with Mahr's new C 1700 PC, a 10-in. touch screen display that allows users to view the gaging results from their measuring station.

When high-performance electronic gaging is required, Mahr Modular systems offer the flexibility of selecting input and computation options, including creating multiple inputs from different sensors, sequenced measuring cycles, selecting tolerances, dimensional classes, and using the I/O to controlling external functions.

Linear motion module

Robot floor tracks carry the load

Güdel"s TMF-6 floor-mounted linear motion module has the capacity to carry robots with total dynamic load of up to 13,300 kg. This TMF-6 module is capable of carrying static payloads up to 20,000 kg per carriage. The FANUC M-2000iA series of robots includes four models with payload capabilities ranging from 900 to 2300 kg. Güdel"s TMF-5 model is used for smaller super-heavy robots on the market.

These massive robots are ideal for transferring extremely large and heavy items such as truck and tractor frames, automotive bodies, loaded pallets and large castings, where being able to linearly shift the robot along the floor means extended reach and handling capabilities.

The drive system consists of Güdel gearboxes, Güdel heavy-load guideway systems and Güdel racks and pinions. The Güdel cam follower on guideway system features replaceable cam follower cartridges designed to facilitate quick change-out. The TMF-6 can be configured with up to two robot carriages as standard.

Power entry module

The DD14 meets electromagnetic capability challenges

Schurter"s DD14 series of power entry modules combines an International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) C14 appliance inlet with two-pole switch and two-pole fuseholder. Electromagnetic capability (EMC) performance is enhanced with a depth-saving two-stage filter. Shielding is optimized by screwing the metal casing of the filter to the panel, using its horizontal or vertical flange. A snap-in filter version eliminates the flange, consuming even less panel space.

The DD14 integrates the EMC filter directly in line with the power input. The two-stage filter design suppresses interference voltages more effectively over a much broader frequency spectrum than single-stage filters, thereby having a positive effect on electromagnetic compatibility.

Standard and low-leakage medical filter options are available for use in commercial or facilities information and communications technology equipment according to IEC 60950, and medical equipment according to IEC 60601-1. The series meets the new fuseholder requirements outlined in IEC 60127-6 for enhanced fire safety and also is suitable for use in home appliances according to IEC 60335-1. It is compatible with V-Lock retaining cordsets.
