Join FPE and Teledyne Dalsa for a Special Machine Vision Event on Wednesday, July 31, 2013

From the Fluid Power Engineering Automation Control Division:

An event co-sponsored by FPE & Teledyne Dalsa with content you can really use. You will leave with iNspect demo software, a FREE six color test light, and the knowledge to better manage machine vision. Oh, and lunch is on us!

Date: Wednesday, July 31, 2013
Time: 9:00 am – 2:00 pm

We’ll cover:
Machine vision essentials – the basics.

Use of the popular Teledyne DALSA iNspect vision software. This is the easiest point and click vision software available anywhere. So simple, as a matter of fact, that other vision companies are trying to imitate this easy-to-use software.

Machine vision lighting. We’ll show you how to use various lighting solutions in your applications. We’ll cover axial, darkfield, dome, spot and different colored lights. Lighting is critical to a successful application. It’s a topic that is often overlooked.

If that didn't create enough value for you...

By the time we're midway through the session, we're pretty sure you'll be very satisfied with what you've heard. But if we do leave any questions unanswered, we're going to put you in the driver's seat. We’ll be setting aside time to answer any questions about the actual application that you may have. Bring in an example from your work environment and our experts will cover your topic.

Cost: $50.00 Lunch will be provided.

You can sign up by visiting the Fluid Power Engineering website, or by calling your FPE solution specialist: 847-364-7455.

You'll be glad you joined us.

Introducing the Murr Modlink MSDD Interface System

The Modlink MSDD interface system makes it easy to access controls in the cabinet when the time comes for in-plant or machinery diagnostics and servicing. With Modlink the cabinet can remain closed and the components inside can continue to operate with their required level of protection. This helps you maintain compliance with all necessary safety regulations. Simply snap the appropriate GFCI circuit breaker into the frame. Then, if the switch trips, it can be reset without having to open the cabinet.

Available in both a single and double frame size with a choice of cover (transparent, silver or fiberglass reinforced gray), Modlink MSDD is suitable for applications in a wide variety of environments. The covers come with a choice of locking mechanism, either a 3mm double-bit key or a knob. Both help the cover and frame meet IP65 requirements thus making the insert resistant to dirt, dust and humidity. The newly redesigned cover has a spring mechanism that lifts an open lid 30°. This allows you to see at a glance that it is open and reminds you to close it when finished.

The modular system is based on a two parts: frames and inserts. With over 4000 combinations of frames and inserts, Modlink allows manufacturers to react to country specific requirements without having to rework the size of the housing each time. The cutout dimensions, which have remained the same even though the frame has a new look, are standard across the product line no matter which insert you choose for your application. This makes it easy for both designers and installers to work with Modlink MSDD.
