SCHURTER series DG11 and DG12 with and without mains filter features a first-of-its-kind ingress protection solution for IEC inlets, consisting of a seal gasket between the connector and mating V-Lock power cord. The blue colored latch of the V-Lock power cord and blue inlay of the appliance inlet indicate that the two have been equipped to provide an IP54 rating under load. The unit is screw mounted and rated IP67 between the power entry module and the panel.
MENNEKES recently expanded our sloped-top motor disconnect offering, allowing you to prioritize sanitation in your plant environment while easily meeting requirements for multiple disconnects. Available in three multi-gang enclosure sizes, the new stainless steel SLPX Series features a unique clean design for critical washdown and processing areas. Like other MENNEKES sloped-top disconnects, these units are UL Listed, rated NEMA 4X and include a 15-degree sloped roof to facilitate liquid runoff. They are also ideally suited for multiple disconnect requirements, saving you cost and time with one box installation versus having many individual units.
Simply connected, individually configured, reliably controlled—the new push button box can be connected easily and error-free to IO-Link networks via an M12 connector. No complex wiring is required. In addition to data storage during configuration, IO-Link enables the transmission of diagnostic data for condition monitoring and predictive maintenance. The communication standard therefore ensures increased plant availability.
AutomationDirect has added Patlite NE series visual and audible-visual signaling beacons to their portfolio of industrial signaling devices. These signaling devices are offered as visual-only beacons or as combination devices with a buzzer or selectable tone alarm (8 different tones) and signal beacon. Mono-color beacons are available in red, yellow, green, blue, or clear models. Multi-color versions support 7 selectable colors allowing users to signal numerous different equipment conditions with one device.
AutomationDirect has added new ProSense T30R series rugged timer relays featuring a high 30A SPDT output contact that controls loads without requiring a separate contactor. These new single-function timer relays are available in on-delay, off-delay, fleeting, and cyclic mode timing options and offer an easy-to-use rotary switch adjustment with timing ranges up to 10 hours. The new timer relays are encapsulated for resistance to harsh environments and utilize a microprocessor-based design for superior accuracy and repeatability.
Omron Automation Americas adds advancements to its’ panel solutions with the new MY-GS-R relay. This addition allows users to verify the operational state accurately, while encompassing the other key features such as vibration resistance, reduced wiring times, and unified component dimensions. This relay can be integrated in broad industries with a variety of different applications, including food processing, packaging machinery, palletizing/de-palletizing, assembling, and material handling.
The new CPUs and Power Modules in the Remote I/O IS1+ system from R. STAHL are now also available for installation in Zone 1. This means that the extensive range of functions offered by the Zone 2 version, such as integrated support for PROFIBUS DP, PROFINET (CC-B), EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP and OPC UA, can now also be used in Zone 1.
Industrial manufacturers can optimize their operations and reach higher levels of efficiency with the latest addition in the Allen‑Bradley ArmorBlock 5000 I/O portfolio, the 16-point configurable blocks. These I/O blocks provide unparalleled configurability and integrated I/O capabilities that help enhance flexibility and precision in automation systems.
EAO has extended the robust Series 82 with a new product variant with vibration-resistant cable connections. It is common to expose pushbuttons and indicators to extremely harsh operating conditions. For example in the food and beverage industry, where alkaline cleaning agents and corrosion severely affect HMIs. In addition, external factors in the form of hard-to-remove dirt, fine dust, along with severe vibrations and blunt impacts also require HMIs to offer a very high level of resistance.
The new LEMUR lite managed switch family offers the most advanced data rates for the price point, up to 11 ports, PoE/PoE+ options, IP30 protection and an extended temperature range of -40°C to +60°C. As automation expands, powerful, ruggedized and cost-effective switches are a necessity. The LEMUR lite managed switch family provides sought-after features –full Gigabit Ethernet and PoE/PoE+ options – for a reasonable price point.
Littelfuse, Inc. has recently launched its Class J Fuse Disconnect Switch. The compact device combines a switch and multiple fuses into a single product offering a simpler way to manually open and close a circuit while safeguarding against overcurrent and short circuits. When the switch detects an overload or short circuit, the fuse blows automatically to open or break the circuit both upstream and downstream and shuts off the equipment.
Phoenix Contact: TERMITRAB Surge Protective Devices – Monitoring Surge Protection for Signal Interfaces
Signal lines are like nerve tracts in technical systems. Therefore, it is very important to protect these system parts from surge voltages caused by switching operations or lightning strikes. The surge protective devices of the TERMITRAB complete product family from Phoenix Contact enable this protection to be realized while saving space at the same time. Often, the protective components are installed in several control cabinets or in the field. This means that it is very time-consuming or even impossible to gain a permanent visual check of the protective devices on site.
