3-in- 1 Measurement Gauge
is readable in high or low light conditions
The byko-test Fe/NFe gauge offers a
unique solution to monitor environmental conditions while measuring
dry flm thickness. Air temperature
and humidity sensors are built into
the gauge along with a dew point
temperature display to determine if
the conditions are right for painting.
CO2 Laser Optics for Rotary Etching
have 40-20 scratch-dig surface quality
Laser Research CO2 Lenses are offered in a variety of sizes with focal
lengths from 1 to 25-in. in 0.5-in. increments to allow lasers to make sharper
cuts with fewer passes. Optimized for
10. 6 microns and meeting ISO-10110
specifcations, they are ideally suited
for use in rotary etching lasers.

The Rechargeable Personal
Worklight is capable of standing, hooking,
hanging or magnetically mounting wherever a
working. Additional features
include an integrated USB-A port to charge smartphones and other
small devices. Easily check the battery life with the
gauge, but don’t worry, on high this work light is a bright
460 lumens for a full 9 hours and 16 hours on the low
setting. This addition to Klein Tools’ existing jobsite
illumination product offering provides a tough solution
to all-day lighting on the job.
Automatic Valve Protection System
stops metal to metal contact
The RotaSafe valve rotor protection system automatically
detects contact between the rotor and housing and instantly
shuts down power to the drive motor to prevent any metal
to metal contact from contaminating the product and/or
from damaging the valve components. Monitoring valve
performance in 24/7 operation, the proprietary system
is proven to respond instantly to contact due to product
buildup, bearing failure, excessive load on the rotor, and
other maintenance issues common to processing powders
before particulates can cause a signifcant problem.

From CAD Data to Digital Twin
simulates flow of materials to identify potential collisions
B&R has integrated the industrialPhysics simulation
tool into its Automation Studio engineering environment. The 3D simulation software greatly simplifes
model-based machine development—developers can
import CAD data from machine components or entire
machines directly into the simulation tool where they
can quickly and easily generate a digital twin for developing and testing the machine software.
industrialPhysics generates digital twins from CAD
data, which is imported in STEP format to make it
possible to use important properties of the CAD design, such as mass and density. Since the software
is integrated with Automation Studio, developers are
able to run the virtual model of the machine right on
the PC and connect with the controller.
With no additional effort, the machine model can
also be viewed using virtual or augmented reality
headsets. Free from any distractions, developers
can work directly with the simulated machine and
processes can be evaluated on the spot.
B&R Automation Studio is the integrated software
development environment that contains tools for all
phases of a project: The controller, drive, communi-
cation, and visualization.
