Connector/Polyurethane Belting System

Eagle SureConnect connector/polyurethane belting system is said to allow lines to be repaired and returned to service in approximately five minutes. The system uses a flexible connector and matching polyurethane belting. Two belt ends are joined together by a threaded connector to provide a strong, consistent connection. Welding is not needed. According to the company, the system has received rigorous flex fatigue, tensile strength, and elasticity testing to ensure performance in any standard welded-belt application.

Schneider Electric StruxureOn Service Monitors Data Centers 24/7/365

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 6.43.57 PMSchneider Electric, Andover, MA has introduced StruxureOn, a digital service that connects data center physical infrastructure assets to the Schneider Electric cloud, thus enabling the delivery of simplified and faster services.

According to the company, by leveraging real-time visibility into system performance, maintenance, and service requirements by way of a mobile app, StruxureOn’s data-driven analytics can advise of potential failures of critical equipment long before they occur and, in turn, improve the ability to service that equipment. Capabilities include:

As part of the new digital service, Schneider Electric’s Service Bureau experts are available 24/7/365 to remotely troubleshoot issues or, for situations that can’t be addressed remotely, dispatch field-service personnel to help quickly solve problems and minimize downtime. Additional capabilities, among others, include:

  • Mobile access to live data.The StruxureOn app provides an instant overview of sensor data and alarms.
  • Faster break-fix resolution time. Apersonalized regular report provides managers with an overview of batteries and UPS units within recommended lifespan and those nearing recommended age for replacing. They can also get an overview of alarms, incidents, connected assets, and an overall score of how your data center is running based on statistics and critical asset KPIs connected to benchmark other data centers.
  • Improved cyber security. A cyber-secure connection provides improved security for infrastructure devices, and machine data forms the basis of operational insights and analytics, aimed at reducing equipment maintenance costs.
  • Team chat collaboration. Managers can collaborate through chat with internal teams and Schneider Electric experts for quick resolution of a problem. Incidents are automatically created and tracked, providing easy access to real-time incident status, chat and history.

Currently available in North America, StruxureOn is expected to roll out globally on a phased basis toward the end of 2016 and into 2017. For more information, CLICK HERE.


Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 7.13.24 PMEDITOR’S NOTE: Schneider Electric’s introduction of the new StruxureOn Digital Service for Data Centers follows closely on the heels of the company’s recent release of its Galaxy VX, a compact, highly efficient, feature-rich, three-phase uninterruptible power supply (UPS).

The latest addition to the manufacturer’s Galaxy V power-protection lineup, the easily deployed Galaxy VX seamlessly integrates into the electrical, physical and monitoring environments of large-to-hyperscale data centers, industrial operations, and other facilities. Its three efficiency-optimizing operating modes include:

  • Double Conversion Mode, which reduces switching losses using a four-level conversion technology. The reduced switching stress offers greater reliability and reduction in failure rate.
  • Eco Mode, a traditional economy mode that delivers up to 99% efficiency.
  • ECOnversion Mode, a hybrid between Eco Mode and Double Conversion Mode. ECOnversion delivers double conversion performance with up to 99% efficiency. 

The Galaxy VX UPS is available in North America through Schneider Electric and its partners. For more information on the Galaxy V portfolio of power-protection solutions, CLICK HERE.

Net-Oil Measurement

Foxboro NOCT60A net-oil Coriolis transmitter is an all-in-one meter and flow computer that provides a single-box solution for net-oil measurement applications. Consisting of a CFT51 Coriolis transmitter and a CFS10, CFS20, or CFS25 mass flow tube, the unit integrates digital technology with a built-in flow computer equipped with Realflo software to measure net-oil volumes on the liquid leg of two-phase separators or the oil leg of three-phase separators. The transmitter is said to solve common problems associated with the measurement of production fluids, including incomplete separation and gas carry-under, and of detecting adverse conditions such as fluid erosion, corrosion, and flowtube coating.

Upgraded SKF Explorer Spherical Roller Bearings Offer Longer Service Life in High-Vibration Applications

Screen Shot 2016-06-26 at 5.30.48 PMUpgraded Explorer spherical roller bearings for vibratory applications from SKF, Lansdale, PA, have been newly engineered to provide increased performance and longer service life.

Typical applications include vibrating screens, compactors, road rollers, and similar end-uses that operate with high vibration and exposure to contamination, and/or poor-lubrication conditions. Because these bearings are designed to accommodate very heavy radial and axial loads, they’re also well suited for applications where misalignment or shaft deflections may occur.

Features and Capabilities
According to SKF, products in this Explorer spherical-roller bearing family are made from high quality, super-clean, and tough steel; benefit from an upgraded heat treatment; and integrate a special cage design. These combined features, the company says, offer a number of advantages beyond an extended  service life (several times longer than other spherical roller bearings under typical heavy-duty conditions). They include:

  • Lower operating temperatures for cooler and longer running;
  • Improved resistance to wear and contamination;
  • Excellent performance in high-speed applications;
  • Reduced risks of fretting corrosion and induced axial preload;
  • Extended re-lubrication intervals that reduce maintenance costs and boost safety.

The bearings are available in a wide range of bore sizes with increased dimensional precision, two hardened steel cages with an outer ring centered guide ring, and C4 internal radial clearance standard. Optional PTFE-coated cylindrical bores can be supplied to reduce fretting corrosion on the shaft. Custom products can be developed to meet the most demanding requirements.

CBS ArcSafe RSA-22 Reduces PPE Requirements for Operating Medium-Voltage, GE Load Break Switches (IC1074 Series)

Screen Shot 2016-06-26 at 3.55.38 PMAccording to Denton, TX-based CBS ArcSafe, its RSA-22 remote switch actuator (RSA) with a magnetic latching system allows sites to operate the General Electric medium-voltage load break switch (IC1074 series) without having to make any modifications to existing electrical equipment.

The lightweight, portable RSA-22 lets technicians remotely close or trip the load break switch from a safe distance of up to 300 ft., while remaining stationed outside the arc-flash boundary.

Typical applications include squirrel-cage, wound-rotor, and synchronous motors, as well as feeding transformers and other power-utilization circuits.

CBS ArcSafe designs, manufactures, and assembles all of its RSA units in the U.S. The company notes that all of these devices are portable and fast and easy to set up. All offer mechanical and/or electrical safety protection; adjust to fit unique electrical equipment configurations; reduce requirements for personal protection equipment (PPE); and help sites with NFPA 70E arc-flash safety compliance.

Optional features include radio remote capabilities with a range up to 300 ft., 24 V DC LED light, wireless video-camera system with LCD monitor, and rugged protective case assembly.
