National Instruments – Stand 5106

Leveraging the PC and its related technologies, virtual instrumentation increases productivity and lowers cost through easy to integrate software such as NI LabVIEW, a system design tool for accelerating productivity from design through deployment.

Embedded Platforms such as NI CompactRIO combine reconfigurable hardware, hot swappable modules and an open architecture to meet the needs of demanding industrial applications such as machine vision and rapid control prototyping. NI has also introduced its 1 slot NI compactDAQ chassis making it easier to make sensor and electrical measurements on the benchtop, in the field or in the production line.

NORD Drivesystems – Stand 514

NORD Drivesystems presents a new line of performance-optimized two-stage helical bevel gear units. They are particularly suited for use in conveyor technology and in the food industry, as well as in hoists, storage facilities and overhead conveyor systems

The new units are designed as washdown gear-boxes. As the installation measurements remain essentially the same, users can exchange old gear units for the new models: and with greater power reserves, some users may install smaller sizes in some applications.

The new gear units are suited for use with NORD’s complete range of motors, allowing customers to flexibly configure drive solutions.

PLC Hardware – Stand 206

PLC Hardware offers main brand PLC hardware at significantly lower prices (approximately 50% less). The company was incorporated out of frustration at the ever increasing prices from PLC technology vendors, even when manufacturing, shipping and exchange rates have continually shifted positively.
