AutomationDirect has added 300V to 750V rated LUTZE Type HAR/MTW (Harmonized European Standard / Machine Tool Wire) wire that meets National Electrical Code (NEC) and NFPA Standard 79 requirements and is commonly used for appliance wiring, control cabinets, and machine tool applications in Europe. These wires consist of a tinned copper single conductor covered with a color-coded polyvinyl chloride (PVC) outer jacket and are available in sizes ranging from 0.75 mm2 (19AWG) to 4.0 mm2 (12 AWG).
Nothing is too small to make a positive impact on our environment. As a result, WAGO have reimagined one of their best-known products – the 221 Series Splicing Connector. A variant made of partially bio-circular and recycled plastics has been created to keep existing resources in circulation. The connector thus lays a more sustainable footprint right at the start of the installation.
The new “BFW” line of M8 and M12 connectors enables efficient field connection via screw terminals, requiring no soldering. The connectors are available with an increased range of gland sizes that can accommodate cable diameters up to 8mm, making the line more versatile and comprehensive. The BFW line is in stock and ready to ship.

TPC’s Thermo-Trex brand is the solution for a high temperature resistant cable available in many different configurations gauge sizes for power or control applications.
RS Adds Seven New Suppliers That Expand its Selection of Lighting, Enclosure, and Connectivity Products
RS has recently added seven new suppliers: Columbia Lighting, Compass, Dual-Lite, EXO Outdoor Lighting, NX Lighting Controls, Phoenix Mecano, and Remke. The seven new suppliers provide customers with access to an even broader selection of commercial, industrial, and outdoor lighting, electrical and electronic enclosures, and cable grips and cord connectors. Columbia Lighting, Compass, Dual-Lite, EXO Outdoor Lighting, and NX Lighting Control are all part of Current’s HLI brand portfolio, which offers a wide variety of lighting and control solutions engineered to create beautiful, functional, and safe environments.
The EL2068 digital output terminal connects the binary control signals of the automation device to the actuators at process level with electrical isolation. This EtherCAT Terminal contains eight channels, which display their signal status by means of LEDs. The integrated diagnostics can be evaluated in the controller and are indicated by the LEDs. A diagnostic bit is set for the affected channel if there is an overload. The diagnostics serve to simplify the maintenance of the application.
binder presents the 696-series Harsh-Environment Connector (HEC) for outdoor use in extreme weather, dust, humidity, contact with liquids, extreme temperatures, or vibrations. The power connector was engineered for versatile power supply in both the low- and high-voltage segments under particularly harsh conditions. Its compact design supports the supply of equipment or assemblies, such as drive units, in confined spaces.
When moisture meets electricity, a short circuit can happen quickly. Encapsulation is a proven solution. But now reliable moisture protection for splicing connectors can be achieved even more quickly and easily with the WAGO Gelbox. It is ready for immediate use in a wide range of low- and extra-low voltage applications.
AutomationDirect has added LUTZE SUPERFLEX control cable that is well suited for short to medium length articulated drag chain (C-tracks) installations requiring moderate to high performance. The High Glide TPE insulation and PVC outer jacket provides resistance to sunlight, oil, and moisture penetration, and makes this cable suitable for indoor wet and dry applications or outdoor installations. Cables are available with conductors in 21 AWG to 12 AWG sizes, with up to 34 conductors including ground, and is made in the USA.
Discover IBOCO’s full line of I-Flex Liquid–Tight Connectors, which are available in both light Grey or Black. Their non-metallic liquid tight connectors are used in completion of their I-Flex Liquid–Tight PVC electrical tubing. IBOCO’s straight and right angle (90º) liquid-tight non-metallic connectors are designed to fit with the company’s line of flexible liquid-tight PVC tubing in order to ensure leak-proof integrity on motors, processing equipment, pumps, etc.
Weidmuller USA has recently announced a significant expansion to the company’s family of Klippon TB stainless steel enclosures and also introduces a robust new line of NPT cable glands and accessories for North American (USA) customers. Weidmuller Assembly Services provides value added services that combine the company’s Klippon TB enclosures, along with cable glands, conduit hubs and other fittings, and Weidmuller connectivity products such as terminals, relays, surge suppression modules, power supplies, u-remote and other components in pre-populated enclosures, ready-to-wire for general industrial as well as hazardous location applications.
Need to repair broken cables or extend lines easily? The 2773 Series PUSH WIRE Inline Splicing Connector helps you achieve this. It can connect conductors from 0.75 to 4 mm² in very tight spaces – no tools necessary. Simply strip the conductor and push it into the unit without tools – the clamping point is quickly and securely connected. Modern building technology places high demands on electrical connections – particularly for convenient operation, safety, reliability and flexibility.
