Ultra-thin Indicator Light Retro-fits Existing ApplicationsCanfield Connectorrs Interposed Lighted Wafer is a state of the art, electronic lighting indicator module for installation between a DIN type coil and itts mating connector. The ultra-thin iLWWs surface mount technology and high luminescence Gallium Arsenide LED allows it to retrofit existing applications or to be used in conjunction with unlighted connectors. The iLW is MINI standard but also is available for Sub-Micro 8mm, Sub-Micro 9.4mm, DIN 43650 Form AA/ISO 4400, and EN 175301-803:2000 retrofits. It is NEMA 4 and IP 65 dust tight and water resistant and is not polarity dependent. Designed to sandwichh between the connector and the coil, the iLW can be installed several times without degrading the contact surfaces and operates in an ambient temperature range of -200 to +900C.
Canfield Connector is certified to ISO 9001 with design and the Series iLW is proudly manufactured in the USA to the highest quality standards. Complete specifications can be found at www.canfieldconnector.com or by calling Bob Howard at 330-758-8299 x 122.

VACUUM CHECK VALVES FEATURE LOW CRACKING PRESSUREA line of check valves that were specifically designed for vacuum system applications and eliminate the use of pressure check valves with stiffer springs is available from Anver Corporation of Hudson, Massachusetts.
Anver CheckVac Valves are designed for all industrial vacuum applications where vacuum loss prevention is required and feature low 0.17 psi cracking pressure with flow rates up to 63 CV. Unlike pressure check valves, these vacuum check valves optimize system performance by not wasting the pumps power opening stiffer springs; resulting in up to four times better flow.
Allowing the use of smaller vacuum pumps in many applications, Anver CheckVacc Valves are made from a leak-free, seamless, one-piece anodized aluminum body with a smooth bore and have a plastic valve element with a specially tempered stainless steel spring and an O-ring seal. Designed to operate in any orientation, they are offered in 1/44 through 22 NPT sizes.
Anver CheckVac Valves are priced from $9.99 up, depending upon size. Visit

SCHUNK PRG 2-Finger Radial GripperThe new PRG 2-Finger Radial Gripper from SCHUNK combines high gripping moments with small dimensions. The integrated pneumatic oval piston drive guarantees maximum power density.
Radial gripping motions are often achieved by integrating a slotted link gear. Existing links cause an extreme reduction in the gripping moment, if the opening angles are rather small. SCHUNK has found a solution for such an application; the patented Single-Pin guide rail which ensures a constant closing moment throughout the gripping range. The new PRG did not change in dimensions and can reliably grip larger workpieces or workpieces with a larger tolerance range. In addition, innovative dampening, which is directly integrated in the drive rod, allows short cycle times and a much longer admissible finger length.
The multifunctional PRG has an adjustable stroke to fit the individual application and is also available with a gripping force safety device, in a high-temperature version and with three different opening angles (300 / 600 / 900). The end position can be optionally monitored by inductive proximity switches or magnetic switches.

New roller screw option on Tolomatics integrated servomotor actuator makes it the longest lasting integrated electric actuatorNew roller-screw option available on IMA rod-style linear actuators provides significantly higher service life at forces up to 3,300 pounds.
HAMEL, Minn. Tolomaticcs integrated-motor rod-style actuator (IMA) is now capable of delivering up to 3,300 pounds of force when equipped with the new roller-screw option. The Tolomatic IMA incorporates a hollow core rotor and skewed motor windings into its unique servomotor design for an extremely compact package with increased dynamic performance and service life compared to traditional rod-style actuators. The IMAAs unique integrated motor design is well suited for applications such as pressing, clamping, valve control, spot welding and volumetric filling.
With the addition of the roller-screw option, the service life of the IMA increases by about ten times or more in high-force applications,, says Aaron Dietrich, electric product manager, Tolomatic. In fact, in an IMA 44, the estimated life of the roller-screw is about ten million inches of travel at a mean force of 2,000 pounds. The standard ball screw on the IMA offers better efficiency and economy, but the roller screw option offers higher force, better accuracy and longer service life in high-force applications..
The hollow core rotor design allows the nut of the screw to pass inside the rotor to provide a very compact package. This can decrease overall actuator length by as much as 18 inches compared to standard actuators due to the elimination of a separate motor, motor mount and gearbox. In addition, the skewed stator windings minimize the cogging of the motor to provide smoother, more efficient motion and improved force repeatability,, says Dietrich. The compact footprint and efficient operation of the IMA, combined with the flexibility of control from an electric actuator, makes the IMA a powerful and viable alternative for replacing fluid power cylinders, he says.
The Tolomatic IMA with the new roller-screw option can exert a force of up to 3,300 pounds and move a top speed of about 12 inches per second. The IMA is available with a choice of motor voltages in any incremental stroke length from 6 inches to18 inches. Built with Tolomaticcs Endurance Technology features for maximum durability and extended service life, the IMA has a patent-pending lead-screw lubrication system that allows easy re-lubrication without disassembly. Tolomaticcs sizing and selection software makes selecting an IMA easy. All orders are built-to-order and shipped with Tolomaticcs industry leading five-day delivery.
For more than 50 years, Tolomatic has been a leading supplier of electric linear actuators, pneumatic actuators and power transmission products for factory automation. Its extensive product line also includes servo-driven high-thrust actuators, servo and stepper motors, stepper drives and configured linear-motion systems. Tolomaticcs electric linear and pneumatic actuators are used in a variety of industries, including the packaging, material handling, medical, food processing, automotive, semiconductor and general automation industries.

A full line of locking and straight blade plugs, connectors and receptacles are available in 15, 20, and 30 amp models.
Locking plugs and connectors constructed with impact and chemical-resistant nylon housings feature an internal Triple Gripperr cord clamp which automatically centers and secures the cord. Double wall construction provides extra durability; the configuration-specific plug face surrounds plug blades to prevent infiltration of contaminants. Each terminal cover is imprinted with amperage, voltage and NEMA configuration on the face for easy identification and extended teardropp wiring pockets and backed-out captive terminal screws simplify wiring. Locking plugs start at $6.25
Locking receptacles are designed with back and side wiring terminals that accept 14 to 8 gauge solid or stranded conductor wires. Molded of rugged reinforced thermoplastic polyester, the base minimizes heat buildup and resists breakage. Heavy-duty nickel-plated mounting straps are grounded for safe installations. NEMA rating and configurations are molded into the toughened nylon face for easy identification. Receptacle prices start at $4.75.
Straight blade devices are available in 15 to 30 amp sizes. A universal cord grip design accepts .300-inch to .655-inch (7.6mm to 16.6mm) wire sizes. Prices for straight blade plugs and connectors start at $6.25.
Available high-visibility lockouts provide additional protection. The OSHA lockout/tagout regulation compliant devices protect against unexpected start-up of equipment during maintenance and repair work. To accommodate a full range of plug designs and ratings, the lockouts are available in three sizes. Lockout prices start at $12.25.
A variety of accessories includes stainless steel receptacle plates, starting at $1.50, angle adapters for 20 and 30 amp plugs and connectors for $14.25, and weather boots starting at $9.25.
