Setra Systems to Introduce the Model 269 Very Low Differential Pressure Transducer for High Performance ApplicationsAHR EXPO 2006
Boxborough, Mass. -- Setra Systems, a leading designer and manufacturer of pressure measurement devices, will introduce the Model 269 at the AHR Expo 2006 in booth 3846, happening 1/23-1/25/06 in Chicago, IL. The Model 269 is a very low differential pressure transducer offering enhanced accuracies including non-linearity of ±0.15% and ±0.35% full scale, terminal-based for improved resolution in critical environments. The ultimate solution for in-situ pressure calibration, the Model 269 is provided with a removable process head, allowing for field certification without disturbing the process tubing. Simply detach the header (no need to cut tubing), plug in the Calibration Security Key and verify the performance with its “snap-back” zero/span feature. The product’s installation is simplified with either the base mount or din rail easy mount design, along with a removable electrical terminal strip that makes wiring a breeze. For more information on the Model 269, visit Setra on the internet at http://www.setra.com.

New ACR SmartButton Temperature Logger Released
ACR Systems is pleased to announce the release of the new, more robust ACR SmartButton data logger. Data loggers used in harsh environments must withstand exposure to moisture, dust and other elements. More than ever, the new SmartButton logger is impervious to these elements, even under pressure. In addition, improvements to the temperature sensor now enable the ACR SmartButton logger to monitor a broader temperature range from -40°C to 85°C (-40°F to 185°F). The ACR SmartButton data logger combined with ACR SmartButton Reader software provides a powerful solution for most temperature logging requirements. The hardware component, just slightly larger than a watch battery and housed in a stainless steel container, will record for up to 10 years under normal operating conditions using its internal, lithium power source. The software is very easy to navigate through and is an effective way to graph and quantify a record of the recorded information. Backed by a 10 year warranty, the ACR SmartButton solution provides for many of your temperature data logging requirements. For additional information visit www.acrsystems.com
Phoenix Controls Corporation new Programmable Control Module (PCM)
ACTON, MA—Phoenix Controls Corporation has added a new Programmable Control Module (PCM) to its Celeris® product line. The device extends the flexibility of the Celeris Environmental Control System’s control functions by allowing application engineers to create custom control sequences on a room-level network with a simplified version of a BASIC programming interface. PCMs can be used to implement practically any room-level control sequence that relies on inputs from physical sensors, switches, or network-based variables to achieve a desired control output, function or interlock. Examples of typical applications are lighting, temperature, and access control. Other features include capturing trends with the data logging function, pluggable terminal blocks, status indicators for outputs, and the ability to use the device as either a standalone controller or an input/output expansion module. For more details about the PCM, visit Phoenix Controls’ Web site at http://www.phoenixcontrols.com/datasheets.html

JVL Integrated AC Servo Motors increase profit
JVL, which is the European leader in the development of new servo- and step motor technology, has developed a series of compact integrated motors, called the “MAC Motor”. The MAC motor is an AC servo motor and controller combined in a single unit, offering previously unseen low pricing for the OEM market. Integrating electronics in a motor has been achieved previously, but never in such a compact unit with true AC servo performance. In the MAC motor, the servo motor, hall sensors, encoder and control circuitry have been especially designed by JVL to provide a self-contained, integrated unit in which the driver and controller are mounted behind the motor in a sealed housing. System intelligence is thereby decentralized by off-loading control functions to the device level. This makes the MAC motor well suited for distributed control architectures which are prevalent in factory automation processes today. For further information visit www.trumation.com
