Leak monitor

Plastic Technologies Inc. LeakMonitorThe upgraded LeakMonitor device uses an ultrasonic sensor to continuously monitor the blow-molding process for air leaks from machine components and defective bottles. During the normal reheat stretch blowing process, the leak detection device listens for leaky bottles, tracks them through the machine and triggers an eject mechanism when they are in the correct position. In addition, routine background noise is monitored and graphed. If the background noise reaches an unacceptable level, the ultrasonic sensor can trigger an alarm.

Micro drive

Hitachi 100 V micro driveNew 100 V class models, from the company's WJ200 series of inverters, are rated at Ѕ- and 1-hp, 100-120 VAC, single-phase input and 200-240 VAC, 3-phase output. The WJ200 is a sensorless vector (SLV) drive capable of 200-percent or greater torque across the speed range. Speed regulation at low speed reduces fluctuation and improved trip avoidance measures have been incorporated for system reliability and availability. With the Easy Sequence (EzSQ) logic controller function, programs up to 1024 lines can be created on a PC using a structured language editing tool. These programs can then be transferred to the WJ200 to control its operation without the use of external controllers.
