SIMPLE INTEGRATED SAFETY RELAYS
Sirius 3SK1 are flexible, modular safety relays for monitoring and control systems with simple safety requirements, such as emergency stop or protective door monitoring. Both mechanical and electronic sensors can be connected to the safety relay with screw-type or spring-loaded terminals. They also have front-mount DIP switches, easily added output expansions, and an optional power supply.

BRUSHLESS DC MOTOR CONTROL
SS360PT, SS460P, SS360PT and SS460P high-sensitivity, latching, Hall-effect sensor ICs with built-in, pull-up resistors control brushless dc motors that need latching sensors with reliable, consistent performance. These high-performance, economical sensor ICs are well-suited for demanding, cost-sensitive, high-volume applications such as flowrate, speed and RPM sensing.

COMPATIBLE DRIVES
ABB's low-voltage, industrial AC drive portfolio is built on a common architecture and designed to simplify operation, optimize energy efficiency and maximize output. The new architecture enables the drives to control virtually any type of AC motor, and interface across all major fieldbus protocols and remote monitoring solutions. Users can program any drive in the family from one operator panel.

NEW FAMILY IN TOWN
MV1000 medium-voltage AC drive family is designed for energy savings and improved process control. Its Smart Harmonics technology reduces input total harmonic distortion to less than 2.5% without filters. It's available in 2.4-kV and 4.16-kV models in four different frame sizes. The 2.4-kV models have outputs from 200 hp to 2750 hp;, and 4.16-kV models have outputs from 300 hp to 5000 hp.

HAVING AN INERTIA MOMENT?
The new AM8500 series of servomotors have an an increased rotor moment of inertia and are suitable for applications with larger external mass inertias, in particular CNC applications in machine tools and woodworking machines. It covers a wide performance range with four sizes and three lengths with standstill torques from 1.38 to 29 Nm.

BEEF UP YOUR D
D-Frame VLT drives are available in a power range from 125 hp to 450 hp (90 to 315 kW), and are up to 68% smaller than previously. They require less panel or wall space than prior models, and leverage back-channel cooling to remove 90% of the heat generated by the drive. They're available with IP20, IP21 (NEMA 1) or IP 54 (NEMA 12) enclosure protection ratings.
