Torque Limiter Demo Video Motion Industries released a new video on their "MiHow2" channel. The instructive video series' goal is to share practi‐ cal industrial applications that viewers can adapt in their own facilities. "Autogard and MiHow2: Demonstration and Benefits of Using a Ball Detent Torque Limiter" was filmed with the as‐ sistance of Rexnord Industries' Autogard division, a designer and manufacturer of mechanical overload protection devices (torque limiters) and flexible couplings for use in industrial power transmissions. The video can now be viewed online at "Using a ball detent style torque limiter is a practical way to minimize equipment damage due to jams or overloads," said Randy Breaux, Motion Industries' senior vice president of marketing, product management & strategic planning. "This video demonstrates how quick and easy it is to reset the limiter and return to production after disengagement due to a jam." Motion Industries, Digital Weight Indicator The 880 Performance Series from Rice Lake Weighing Stys‐ tems is a compact digital weight display and controller for mounting within larger control panels and DIN‐rail applica‐ tions. A smaller, removable indicator face and overall depth of just over 4 in. make the 880 one of the most compact full‐ size controllers on the market, noted the manufacturer. Adding to the 880's versatility, it also adapts to a broad spec‐ trum of technologies, whether they require USB, RS‐232 or standard Ethernet connec‐ tion. The 880 can operate as a standalone controller, but also connects to a wide range of industrial networking pro‐ tocols for PLCs.
