Thermal management specialist STEGO Elektrotechnik has launched a switch cabinet heater in a new loop design. An update of the switch cabinet thermostats KTO KTS as well as new smart sensors complete the STEGO portfolio.
With the new LPS and LTS product series, STEGO has updated its PTC-based convection heaters in the power range from 10 to 150 W. Heat sinks in the new loop profile design absorb the heat output of the PTC elements better and ensure a constant preload that keeps the heaters tight.
The LTS series heaters are able to comply with the standards for mobile railway applications (DIN EN 60068-2-27:2010-02 and DIN EN 60068-2:64:2009-04). STEGO consistently relies on push-in terminals for the electrical contacting of the LPS and LTS series. Easily accessible on the front of the device, the push-in terminals save up to 50% time by inserting the cables without tools. The clamps exert constant pressure on the supply lines – a plus in terms of safety, e.g. B. also when transporting pre-assembled control cabinets. Loosening of the connection lines and thus a short circuit is impossible.
Bimetallic thermostat KTO KTS relaunched
With the new edition of the KTO / KTS, STEGO took the opportunity to optimally adapt its mechanical thermostats to the needs of switch cabinet construction in practice. The thermostats are designed as two-point controllers with a thermal bimetal sensor element. The KTO 111 is an opener (NC) for controlling heaters. The KTS 111 is a make contact (NO) for controlling filter fans, heat exchangers, cooling devices or signal transmitters. Push-in terminals are used for electrical contact. They ensure a safe, tool-free and faster connection of the power supply lines. Users can count on assembly times being reduced by up to 50%. The STEGO engineers have also optimized the housing design: The thermostat now literally gets more air.
Distance Smart Sensor D SS 015 monitors distances using ultrasound
The newly developed Distance Smart Sensor DSS 015 determines the distance to objects using ultrasonic wave propagation time measurement (ToF – T ime o f F light). A suitable application for the Distance Smart Sensor DSS 015 is distance or fill level monitoring in industrial applications. Special feature: The DSS 015 even recognizes transparent objects such as glass, foil or liquids. It is also insensitive to changing light conditions. It can be easily connected to higher-level control systems (e.g. PLC) via its IO-Link interface.
