Ignition Control Modules feature MPU-based design.

Capable Controls, Inc. Introduces Their Series 5X Microprocessor-Based Intelligent Direct Spark or Intermittent Pilot Ignition Control Module

Capable Controls, Inc. introduces their Series 5X microprocessor based intelligent direct spark or intermittent pilot ignition control modules, designed for OEM and replacement applications.


The 5X series Ignition control module is designed for commercial, residential and industrial systems. This control provides standard wiring and configuration allowing simplified installation and replacement. The internal circuitry monitors system gas valve, wiring and igniter while automatically shutting down the system in the event of a failed or shorted circuit.

The 5X Series has been approved by CSA for US and Canada usage. The microprocessor based design provides software control of all of the thousands of timing options, igniter control, gas valve operation, flame sensing along with safety shutoff/lockout operation and a diagnostic LED.

Other options include: Quick Start, Flame Stabilization, Re-ignition, Spark Restoration, Independent alarm outputs: 5vdc- 24Vac/dc- 120Vac/dc, Combustion Blower Output, Rollout Switch, Universal Model with field selectable DIP switch, along with thousands of various timing combinations.

The 5X has proprietary designed ODL "Optical Data Link" which allows programs to be downloaded wirelessly per custom OEM specifications. This allows Capable to stock base units and install the various custom OEM programs within seconds.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air – Flexible and Intelligent

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
