The maxon motor range of brushless DC motors with integrated electronics features established drives EC 20 flat, EC 32 flat and EC 45 flat, but now they have in-built speed controllers, yet are almost the same size. The motors available as standard are the 2- and 5-wire versions, with an operating range of 2-50 W. The drives are suitable for use where there is minimal installation space, when long service life and constant speed are required at the same time as simple control operations.
The RE 65 brushed DC motor package delivers 250 W and can cope with tough demands. The motor is particularly suitable for applications where high efficiency, high power density and a minimal operating noise are required.
PANalytical has released a capillary extension that is compatible with the combined X’Pert Pro MPD/HTK 1200N High-Temperature Oven Chamber (Anton Paar) system, creating a ‘two-in-one’ reflection and transmission high-temperature XRD system.
Dunkermotoren BG75 DC motors feature output powers up to 500 W and torques up to 5 Nm. They have sufficient reserves to take on numerous drive tasks in automation. Combined with components selected from a comprehensive package of equipment, the motors can become fully fledged, cost-effective and compact servo drives.
The NTC thermistors from Measurement Specialties can be used in disposable medical temperature products to improve monitoring accuracy and clinical hygienic standards. The sensors offer sensitivity, durability and interchangeability in a variety of physical configurations.
The Thermo Haake EZ Cool 80 circulator is a versatile option for laboratory cooling and heating needs from -10 to +80°C. Its bathless design minimises the evaporation of temperature fluid during daily use. The stainless steel circulator is both quiet and robust, making it suitable for laboratory use.
Up to 40 high-pressure vessels per run can be processed with the MarsXpress High-Throughput Microwave Reaction System from CEM. MarsXpress offers intelligent and adaptive continuous temperature and pressure feedback control for all vessels all the time without the need for temperature and pressure connections.
Liquid Handling Talk, an online forum dedicated to pipetting and automated liquid handling quality, was launched recently, providing a means for scientists to discuss liquid handling issues and developments with peers and specialists around the world.
