Posys(TM)4xx advanced motion controller provides a pulse and direction signal with 5 MHz for stepper motor control or a 16-bit +/-10V analog or 10-bit/20 kHz PWM signal for servo motors. Designed for brushed/brushless servo or stepper motors, it features motion profiles of S-curve, trapezoidal, velocity contouring, and electronic gearing. Motion controllers are available in 2, 4, 6, or 8 axes configurations. Intelligent Motion Control Ltd., www.intelligent-motion. com. Enter 582

Ball valves

The P506 Series panel mount ball valves are made from CF-8M stainless steel, available in .25-, 3/8-, and .50-inch sizes. The valves have a working pressure of 2,000 psi and a temperature range from -50 to 450F. Designed for surface mounting, the valves can be used with a pneumatic actuator in a remote location. Applications include off-shore drilling platforms, machine tools, and environmental controls. Parker Hannifin, www.daedalpositioning.com. Enter 583

Metering pumps

The pocket bellows metering pump is constructed entirely of plastic and uses bellows technology making it chemically resistant. The pumps are self-priming, repeatable from stroke-to-stroke to ( plus or minus .75%, and can run dry. Available in four different bellows sizes for a variety of flow requirements and 13 tubing connector options, the pumps may be used in waste removal systems, silver recovery systems, and detergent dispensers.
