Now available - WDA4 Motion Alignment Sensor
The WDA4 is a non-contacting high-power, extended range magnetic proximity sensor, for alignment and motion detection on bucket elevators and conveyors 4B have just launched the upgraded version of the WDA, the WDA4, now with the ability to reverse the state of the continuous output (normally energised or normally de-energised). This sensor is a great choice for measuring speed and alignment on bucket elevators and on other applications such as using the WDA switch as broken/slack chain detector on drag chain conveyors or as a non-contact speed switch for screw conveyors. The WDA4 supersedes the WDA3 – meaning that the WDA3 is no longer ATEX approved. The WDA4 complies with the latest ATEX and IECEx certification but is not currently CSA approved. The WDA4 is a non-contacting high-power, extended range magnetic proximity sensor, not affected by dust or material build up, used to detect moving ferrous material up to 75mm away from the sensor. The sensor is designed for use with bucket elevators to detect the buckets in order to measure speed and alignment. It can also detect screw conveyor flights, and ferrous

4B expands ”Milli”- range of ATEX approved sensors
4B Group expand their ATEX approved “Milli” range with thethe Milli-Vib and Milli-Con vibration sensors, both suitable for heavy duty industrial applications. 4B Group expand their ATEX approved “Milli” range with the introduction of the Milli-Vib and Milli-Con vibration sensors. Both are designed for heavy duty industrial applications for measurement of vibration (Milli-Vib) and combined vibration / temperature (Milli-Con). Like other sensors in the “Milli” range, the Milli-Vib and Milli-Con carry approvals for the highest levels of dust hazard protection to international standards (ATEX, IECEx & Class II Div 1). Made from robust stainless steel, the sensors are suited to the harshest environments and provide additional insight into the performance and condition of machines and individual mechatronic and mechanical components, such as bearings, motors, gearboxes, etc. With 4-20mA loop powered output equating to two sensing range options 0-25mm/s or 0-50mm/s velocity, the Milli-Vib is suited to most vibration sensing applications. Additionally, the Milli-Con incorporates surface temperature monitoring using

USR Universal Speed Relay Universal speed relay for all speed monitoring applications; offering intuitive user configuration using control buttons and LCD display, as well as relay and solid state outputs with individual speed range monitoring.
USR Universal Speed Relay
Universal speed relay for all speed monitoring applications; offering intuitive user configuration using control buttons and LCD display, as well as relay and solid state outputs with individual speed range monitoring. 4B’s USR Speed Relay is a microprocessor controlled digital speed monitor for use with 2, 3, 4 wire NPN/PNP sensors, 4B’s WDA range of sensors or contact sensor inputs, with a user programmable electro-mechanical relay and PhotoMOS Solid State Relay (SSR) outputs. The Speed Relay has a 160x80 pixel LCD display to provide information, and 3 front panel buttons to program settings. The USR Speed Relay reads input pulses and displays the calculated pulse frequency in a range of selectable units. The user can set the Electromechanical Relay and PhotoMOS Solid State Relay outputs independently, with their own thresholds and output behaviors, and have the Alarm LED indicate the state of one of the outputs. The Electromechanical Relay can be set to trigger when the input speed is outside the chosen range. The PhotoMOS Solid State Relay can provide a trigger output or can be configured to provide a pulsed output that matches the input pulse frequency. One LED (Input LED)

VIBMIL vibration sensor for industrial environments 4B’s Vibmil Vibration Sensor (VIBMIL) is designed for continuous monitoring of vibration levels in industrial environments.
VIBMIL vibration sensor for industrial environments
4B’s Vibmil Vibration Sensor (VIBMIL) is designed for continuous monitoring of vibration levels in industrial environments. 4B’s Vibmil Vibration Sensor (VIBMIL) is designed for continuous monitoring of vibration levels in industrial environments. A current loop-powered accelerometer, VIBMIL delivers precise vibration RMS velocity readings through a 4-20 mA output. Encased in a robust stainless-steel enclosure with a 3/4” NPT thread for conduit connection, VIBMIL assures durability in the harshest industrial conditions. For added versatility, it can be supplied with optional inbuilt NTC or PT100 temperature sensors. Designed with ease of use in mind, the VIBMIL comes equipped with a female 1/4”-28 UNF mounting thread, allowing secure attachment using screws, studs, or mounting studs. Optional converters to M8 and M6 male threads provide additional flexibility. Integration into control systems is seamless, thanks to the 2-wire, loop-powered accelerometer, providing linearized output from 4 – 20mA, proportional to the sensor’s measuring range. The VIBMIL Vibration Sensor

ENCODER-FLEX 1024 - Innovative Digital Rotary Encoder
4B has introduced the Encoder-Flex 1024, designed to monitor the position of rack and pinion gates, as well as shaft speed and angular position of distributors. 4B Group has introduced the Encoder-Flex 1024, designed to monitor the position of rack and pinion gates, as well as shaft speed and angular position of distributors. The new, ATEX-approved Encoder-Flex 1024 is changing the way slide gates are monitored. This compact rotary shaft encoder uses advanced technology to deliver a precise position from 0 to 100%. With a compact, sleek design, the Encoder-Flex 1024 removes the bulkiness associated with traditional shaft encoders and adds the benefit of easy calibration. There is no need to open up the unit; simply apply an external magnet briefly to calibrate. Providing even more flexibility, resolution can be programmed for 1 to 1024 pulses per rotation. All electronics on the Encoder-Flex 1024 are housed in a sealed stainless steel enclosure and are encapsulated in epoxy, protecting the device from moisture and the elements and providing maximum reliability in the field. In addition, the Encoder-Flex 1024 provides
