DIGITAL-PNEUMATIC MOTION TERMINAL
VTEM motion terminal is a cyber-physical pneumatic-motioncontrol system with digital valves that change functionality
based on various combinations of downloadable motion apps.
The terminal conforms to the National Science Foundation's
definition of a cyber-physical system and provides higher
machine utilization, better energy efficiency, greater flexibility,
and faster time to market for machine builders and end users.
Components include digitally controlled flexible valves, an
integrated processor, Ethernet communications, electrical inputs
for fast control of specific analog and digital applications, and
integrated pressure and temperature sensors for data analysis.
Wenglor color sensors select color objects in automated highspeed processes based on previously defined reference colors. The
pulsed white light is insensitive to extraneous light and reportedly
makes reliable color recognition possible even at varying scanning
distances. Applications include detection of color markings on
print marks, labels, and packages; color object sorting; verifying
color values for painting operations; and spectral measurement of
colors in printing processes. Additions to the product line include
the OPT2023 sensor that evaluaties as many as three colors
simultaneously and the OPT2022 12-color fiber-optic amplifier, a
multispectral sensor with 12 switching outputs for detailed color
analysis using spectral measurement in ROYGBV color space.
"Equipment visuals can reduce training
time by 60 to 70%, eliminate errors,
and improve reliability."

FOOD-SAFE STAINLESS-STEEL MOTORS
Baldor-Reliance food-safe motors have smooth contours and
advanced sealing, and exceed IP69K for water to maximize motor
life in high pressure, sanitary cleaning environments. The highingress protection-rated enclosures, offer fully encapsulated
windings, effectively sealing the motor inside and out. Combined
with a laser-marked nameplate and a footless mounting design,
crevices are kept to a minimum and allow the motor to withstand
clean-in-place procedures. A three-piece, rotatable conduit box
allows users access to route incoming power supplies.
