    How to Use Drag Chain?

    If the cable drag chain cable is stretched by tension during wiring, it will friction with the inner wall of the drag chain and cause the sheath to wear. On the contrary, if the wiring is too loose, it will also cause friction with the inner wall of the drag chain, causing the sheath to wear, and it will easily be entangled with other cables. The wiring length of the drag chain cable should be set to just pass the center line of the drag chain. In addition, if the moving part of the drag chain cable is fixed, the bending stress will not be dispersed and absorbed. The fixed part of the cable should be set at both ends of the drag chain.

    Difference Between Drag Chain and Ordinary Cable

    First of all, in terms of flexibility, drag chains are more flexible than ordinary cables. Although the monofilament diameter of the drag chain cable conductor is small, in order to protect the conductor, an insulating material with resistance to mechanical fatigue and a certain strength must be selected. The requirements of tensile resistance, bending resistance, strong wear resistance, anti-blocking, and high toughness also determine that the protective cover material should also have a certain degree of hardness. Therefore, the flexibility of the drag chain is high flexibility, not high flexibility.

    Working Principle of Pneumatic Vane Air Motor

    Pneumatic vane air motor, known as a rotary vane motor, uses air to produce rotational motion to a shaft. The rotating element is a slotted rotor which is mounted on a drive shaft. Each slot of the rotor is fitted with a freely sliding rectangular vane. The vanes are extended to the housing walls using springs, cam action, or air pressure, depending on the motor design. Vane air motorAir is pumped through the motor input which pushes on the vanes creating the rotational motion of the central shaft. Rotation speeds can vary between 100rpm and 25000rpm depending on several factors which include the amount of air pressure at the motor inlet and the diameter of the housing. 

    What is Variable Speed Motor?

    A variable speed motor is a motor that has a variable frequency drive or similar technology installed to control motor speed and torque, by placing these key factors of motor performance under the control of the operator, variable speed motors offer a means for products and production facilities to greatly reduce the amount of energy being consumed by the motors in their devices. Unlike single-speed motors that run at full capacity and then cycle off, a variable-speed motor can operate at high speeds, low speeds or anywhere in between, ramping up and down like a dimmer switch. Variable speed motors are widely used in places that require energy-saving continuous operation and frequent work, such as fans, air compressors, injection molding machines, reducers, water pumps, vacuum pumps, etc.

    • Compressed air systems.
    • Lubricant oil systems.
    • Water pumping systems.

    The systems mentioned above can actually be found in different industries and there are other systems which require pressure sensors. So, let’s see how pressure sensors can be used in each.

    Pull Rope Switch Working Principle

    The pull rope switch is composed of pull rod, reset handle, cam, lock slot and micro switch. The pull rope switch is installed on the frame on both sides of the belt conveyor, and the switch is connected with the steel wire rope along both sides of the conveyor. When an emergency occurs in the conveyor belt equipment, the wire rope is pulled anywhere along the line at the site, and the wire rope pulls the drive arm to rotate, which drives the torque spring through the drive shaft to displace the precision cam and drive the control line, making the conveyor stop running.

    How to Choose Impact Wrenches?

    Impact wrench, also known as ratchet wrench and power tool in general, is mainly a tool that provides high torque output with minimal consumption. It accelerates an object with a certain mass by a continuous power source and then instantly slams into the output shaft, so that a relatively large torque output can be obtained.

    Introduction of Push Button Switch

    Push button switch refers to a switch that uses a button to push the transmission mechanism, presses or disconnects the moving contact and the static contact, and realizes the circuit switching. It is a kind of electrical appliances with simple structure, composed of a metal shell and a circuit, in the electrical automatic control circuit, it is used to manually send out control signals to control contactors, relays, electromagnetic starters, etc. The working principle of the button: after the power is turned on, it outputs a high level signal, when the button is pressed, the button outputs a low-level signal in the normal state.

    Why Should You Buy a Reactor?

    When a short circuit occurs in the power system, a large short-circuit current will be generated. If not limited, it is very difficult to maintain the dynamic stability and thermal stability of electrical equipment. Therefore, in order to meet the requirements of breaking capacity of some circuit breakers, reactors are often connected in series at the outgoing circuit breaker to increase the short-circuit impedance and limit the short-circuit current. Due to the use of reactor, the voltage drop on the reactor is large in case of short circuit, so it also plays a role in maintaining the bus voltage level. It makes the voltage fluctuation on the bus less and ensures the operation stability of user electrical equipment on the non fault line. This is how the reactor works.

    AC Servo Spindle Motor Price List

    The operating principle of the AC spindle servo motor is that when the symmetrical three-phase winding on the stator is connected to the symmetrical three-phase, the excitation current is supplied by the power supply and a rotating magnetic field is established in the air gap between the stator and the rotor rotating at a synchronous speed. By the electromagnetic inductance, the induced potential is generated in the rotor guide bar. Because the rotor guide strip has formed a closed circuit, a current is running through the rotor guide strip. This generates electromagnetic torque and realizes the energy transformation from electrical energy to mechanical energy. ATO provides customers with a wide range of AC spindle servo motors of good quality with favorable prices.

    Voltage Sensor Price List

    The application of sensors involves machinery manufacturing, industrial process control, automotive electronics, communication electronics, consumer electronics and special equipment. There are various kinds of voltage sensors, and based on the measuring principle can be divided into Hall voltage sensors, photoelectric isolated voltage sensors, electrically isolated voltage sensors, voltage transformers and so on. Voltage sensors are able to sense the measured voltage and convert it into a usable output signal. In a variety of automatic detection and control systems, voltage sensors often track and collect AC and DC voltage signals that change at high speed. The signals may be high voltage, high current, or weak power with poor load capacity.  In these cases, it is necessary to use suitable voltage sensors to collect voltage signals that cannot be directly measured or mismatched, so as to obtain standardized and electrically isolated voltage signals. ATO offers a full range of voltage sensors with different measuring ranges at favorable prices.
