With Price Reductions of Up to 70 Percent, Enfield Technologies Makes Proportional Pneumatic Control More AffordableThanks to some innovative engineering, Enfield Technologies has reached an important goal - making a complete proportional pneumatic control system much more affordable.
"We wanted to bring proportional pneumatics to new audiences," said Ed Howe, Enfield Technologies' President. "In motion control, that means a pneumatic actuator with intermediate positioning needs to break the $1,000 price barrier. We beat that target by a wide margin, with the total price of a basic system coming down from $1,841 to $884 - a reduction of 52 percent."
A basic positioning system includes a proportional valve and control electronics manufactured by Enfield Technologies paired with a pneumatic actuator and a position sensor provided by a variety of highly regarded partner companies. The same valves and control electronics used in motion control are also used for proportional pressure, flow, and force regulation applications.
During the last 18 months, Enfield Technologies has revised its sourcing and manufacturing processes. They have also reengineered several key products, adding new features, improving performance and reducing costs. This has allowed the company to offer price reductions averaging 42 percent on its primary components. For example, the LS-C10 controller dropped 70 percent, from $564 to $169.20, and the LS-V25s proportional valve dropped 45 percent, from $721 to $396.60. Enfield Technologies has also implemented volume discounts and an additional 5 percent bundle discount (bundle kits include a controller, valve and cable).
Enfield Technologies has added more than 35 technical resellers and integration partners over the last year. The company has also launched several new products, including the Enfinity System (C2 controller and M2 valves). "Expanded distribution and new products have led to growth and increased volumes," Howe said, "which has led to further cost reductions that we are passing along to our customers."

AutomationDirect Cuts Programming Software Price to FreeIn keeping with its philosophy of always offering the best value in the automaton industry, AutomationDirect has recently cut the price of its Think & Do programming software for their WinPLC processor from $695 to free. Before this price cut, the lowest cost option for programming the WinPLC processor with Think & Do was purchase of a Think & Do WinPLC-only programming package for $695. Now, customers can download the Think & Do v8.04 Keyless Development Demo package for PC-based control for free. The free Demo is offered as a download only, but it includes the same development software that customers receive when they purchase the full Think & Do development package for $1,895.
Like most industrial automation controller programming software, Think & Do consists of a development package that runs on a PC, and one or more runtime keys that reside on real-time industrial controller application targets.
The free Think & Do Demo package has no limits when it comes to development, only in terms of runtime targets. But, these limits donnt affect the WinPLC as it comes pre-loaded with Windows CE and Think & Do runtime software. This means that customers can download the Think & Do v8.04 Keyless Development Demo package for free, create software applications with Think & Do, and download these applications to an unlimited number of WinPLC targets.
For real-time industrial controller targets not pre-loaded with Think & Do runtime software, the Development Demo package has certain runtime limits. Runtime use is restricted to unlimited sessions up to 30 minutes each for 30 days. These sessions allow ample time for testing and proof of concept, but arennt intended for use in actual real-time industrial control applications. The Demo package also doesnnt include the software CD, the Quick Start Guide and the USB Runtime hardware key supplied with the $1,895 Think & Do v8.04 Development package.
The Think & Do v8.04 Keyless Development Demo package features Flow Chart programming, an integrated HMI creator, advanced data manipulation and data exchange with business applications such as from an ERP systems and spreadsheets. Also included are an SQL database interface, and an OPC client and server. The software comes with a CD-ROM, a USB hardware runtime key and a QuickStart guide. System requirements are the Windows 2000, XP or Vista operating system running on a Pentium IV processor with at least 256MB RAM and 750MB hard disk space. The development system must also include a CD-ROM drive, an Ethernet adapter, a 64MB or higher video adapter and minimum 800x600 monitor resolution.
The WinPLC with Think & Do Runtime is a 100 MHz WinPLC processor module pre-loaded with Windows CE and Think & Do runtime software. The WinPLC plugs into the CPU slot of any DL205 base. It includes 8 Mbyte flash ROM, 8 Mbyte RAM, a built-in Ethernet port and a serial port.
Technical information, pricing and delivery for the complete line of Think and Do and WinPLC products can be found at www.automationdirect.com.

Bimba Introduces Pneumatic Isolation Valves as Addition to Air Prep Product LineToday, Bimba Manufacturing introduces a new safety valve (lock out tag out style) to its line of Air Preparation Products. Current OSHA and ANSI/PMMI standards1 require a lockout valve installed on all air-operated equipment to isolate the equipment from its air supply and to exhaust all downstream air pressure making the equipment safe for maintenance.
The Pneumatic Isolation Valve (PIV Series) is available in nine sizes, from 1/4" to 1-1/2" with a full range of accessories to help companies conform to these standards. Many competitive models fail to comply with these standards due to reduced-sized exhaust ports and designs that can be locked in a partially onn condition.
We feel the addition of this pneumatic energy isolation valve will help our customers improve safety in their plant and conform to current industry requirements set forth by OSHA and ANSI/PMMI,, said Jerry Scherzinger, Bimbaas Air Preparation Product Manager. We remain focused on our growing line of air preparation equipment and these new safety valves perfectly complement Bimbaas line of air prep products..
The new PIV Series catalog is available in electronic format on the Bimba website. Learn more about Bimbaas Pneumatic Isolation Valve, reference safety standards and view real-time pricing and delivery information at www.bimba.com.
