Mini Valves Target Sensitive Apps
The SV Series of sub-miniature 7-mm electronic valves offer fast response time for accurate release of small volumes. The 2-way, normally closed valves can operate with air, gas, or other compatible fluids, and are rated with a nominal power of 0.85 watts. Operating temperatures reach 122°F. They are extremely quiet and have low energy consumption. They can be fully customized.
Encoders Feature Embedded Electronics
The LP Series of heavy-duty rotary encoders provide motion control and feedback, along with a programmable option so users can choose resolutions between 1 and 10,000 PPR. The encoders feature low profile housing, exceptional accuracy, overvoltage protection, and a variety of termination options. They provide IP66 ingress protection and encapsulated electronics for resistance against humidity and vibrations up to 200 m/s2 at 55 to 2000 Hz. They are also shock resistant up to 3000 m/s2 at 5 ms half-sine. Operating temperatures range from -40 to 100˚C. In addition to standard termination styles, a terminal-box option is also available to enable pre-wiring. The terminal box comes with captive screws.

Oil/Air Coolers Target Hydraulic and Pneumatic Apps
The OAC 500 oil/air cooler operates at a maximum static pressure of 26 bar in aluminum. It works for media that include hydraulic oil, gear-lubricant oil, lubricating oil, motor oil, and water-glycine. It is available with drive options for 12, 24, 230, and 400 V, and is also offered with a hydraulic drive. It has low sound emissions and can be used in hard-to-access parts of the cooler because of its special dipping paint. It has an aluminum core and enables maximum flow of 55 GPM.

Regulators Target Sensitive Pneumatic Apps
NITRA BR and BFR Series regulators feature die-cast aluminum alloy bodies with irridite and baked epoxy finish, nitrile elastomer and nylon fabric diaphragms. Their nitrile elastomer valve seats make them useful in applications that require clean, accurate instrument air, inlcuding control and analysis instrumentation, medical equipment, web tensioning, high-grade paint booths, and drink process machines. The BFR-series’ filter and regulators feature a 40-micron polyethylene filter with an optional 5-micron filter. They also have two 1/4” NPT gauge ports and a manual drain.

PLCs Integrate HMI, I/O Configurations
The Samba line of self-contained, non-expanded PLCs features onboard I/O and integrated HMI, and provides control for small applications. Models SM35-J-RA22 and SM43-J-RA22 have 12 digital inputs, 2 of which can be configured as analog. In addition, they feature 8 relay outputs and are available with 3.5- or 4.3-inch screens with 16-bit resolution for data entry. They have IP66/IP65/NEMA4X ratings and can be ordered with RS485 or Ethernet, and CANbus ports. Samba supports GPRS/GSM, email and SMS, as well as industrial TCP/IP protocols, MODBUS, DF1 slave, CANopen, and J1939. It can also be adapted to any 3rd-party protocol.
Retaining Rings Come in Ultra-Small Sizes
Spirolox retaining rings are now available with diameters as small as 0.165 inches. They are described with having no “ears”, meaning that they have a uniform cross section so that they don’t interfere with mating components. They are available off-the-shelf in carbon steel, 302 stainless steel, and 316 stainless steel, but other alloys are also available upon request. There are no additional charges for custom retaining rings. Special finishes including inconel, elgiloy, A286, and beryllium copper are also available. The rings meet military and aerospace specifications.
Motion Controllers Feature Analog Inputs, Output
The DMC-30012 Series of single-axis motion controllers feature a 32-bit RISC processor and encoder feedback up to 15 MHz. An internal 800-Watt brushless sinusoidal servo amplifier minimizes space, cost, and wiring. The motion controller operates stand-alone or can be networked to a PC via Ethernet. It has 2 uncommitted analog inputs and 1 uncommitted analog output.
Waterjet-Cutting Hoses Withstand Ultra-High Pressures
Reinflex Ultra High Pressure (UHP) hoses can be used for a wide range of applications including waterjet cutting, surface preparation, paint removal, hydro demolition, ship, tank and vessel cleaning, and waterblast supply hoses. They can also handle general hydraulic applications, including hydraulic jacks, bolt tensioning, and testing. They are constructed out of polymers with spiral-layered steel reinforcement. The insert and ferrule are reliable for working pressures up to 40,600 psi, and have high abrasion and impulse resistance. They are available in long lengths and volumetric expansion at maximum working pressure is very low.
