MC More Stego Thermal Management Products from Automation Direct 1 400x275

AutomationDirect has added new additions to their existing Stego line of thermal management products for even more enclosure heating and cooling solutions.

Top-mount filter fans, in axial or high-capacity versions, and compatible vents are now available to provide a low-cost cooling option for enclosures. Additional filter media sizes have also been added to fit these new fans. Top-mount filter fans start at $381.00, new vents start at $98.00, and new filter media start at $9.00.

Rack-mount fan trays with multiple built-in fans provide high-performance forced air circulation in switch and server enclosures and concerted cooling of 19in rack-mounted component groups. Rack-mount fan trays start at $213.00.

New compact enclosure fan heaters prevent formation of condensation and frost. Additional temperature/humidity sensors work with these enclosure heaters to ensure internal air is properly conditioned. New fan heaters start at $304.00; external temperature/humidity sensors start at $56.00.

Normally closed (N.C.) adjustable thermostats regulate heaters or other devices when temperatures fall below the setpoint value. Normally open (N.O.) versions activate cooling devices when temperature exceeds the setpoint value. Various new adjustable thermostats have been added and start at $21.00.

Ambient sensors record temperature and humidity and output a 4-20 mA or IO-Link signal that can be used by control/monitoring devices to provide reliable temperature regulation, early problem detection, or monitor heater performance. New ambient sensors start at $169.00.

Additional pressure compensator options control pressure within the enclosure by equalizing the pressure differential between the enclosure and the outside environment. New pressure compensators start at $12.25.

MC What to Consider When Choosing a New Motion Control Solution 1 400x275

When it’s time to consider a new motion control solution for your application, rule #1 is “Solve the problem, then worry about the design.”

This is easier said than done, but not if you apply a disciplined, time-tested framework. First, you must clearly understand the problem and the local environment. Failure to do so often results in a suboptimal motion control solution or complete failure.

Secondly, the designer should evaluate the application in light of proven existing motion control solutions. The engineer must also take stock of their skills and the expertise of the team in order to effectively choose the right options and to accurately anticipate development time and resources.

Before choosing any motion control products, the design engineer needs a set of principles to guide his or her selection. Long term experience and common sense has taught us seven important, but often overlooked, principles. 

These key learning have been encapsulated in a simple notion known as the SHAIRED paradigm:

  • •Simplicity of design to reduce problem-causing complexity and cost
  • Homework; calculate the required torque, inertia, duty cycle, etc.
  • Analysis of the application and alternatives must be thorough
  • Integration of the system into existing factory automation
  • Redundancy built in to a system to exceed performance expectations and deal with unexpected changed in load and operating parameters
  • Economical solution for the short and long term.
  • Development time must be accurately estimated

Using the above guidelines during motion control system design, evaluation of alternatives, and final product selection will help increase the odds of application success.
