Emparro HD: Perfectly Engineered to Demanding Ambient Conditions

Maintenance doesn’t necessarily enjoy climbing on a shifting crane in wind and weather to replace a defective power supply unit. Murrelektronik’s new Emparro HD switched power supply is the solution to this problem! The module is engineered for extremely harsh ambient conditions. Emparro HD assures a reliable supply of electricity with a long service life. Emparro HD can be used in areas where power supply units may be installed in a control cabinet, but are still exposed to harsh environmental influences, for example on spreaders (lifting equipment for container handling), construction cranes and internal conveyor technology (intralogistics). Here the power supply units are often constantly in motion and are exposed to high induction…

Magnetisch oder RFID-kodierte Sicherheitssensoren bieten kontaktfreien Schutz für Türen, Hauben und Klappen

Viele Anlagen und Maschinen benötigen Sicherheitseinrichtungen, um während des Betriebs einen unbefugten Zutritt oder Zugriff zu verhindern. Ein einfaches Lichtgitter ist in vielen Fällen nicht ausreichend, denn Lärm, Hitze, Staub etc. dürfen z. B. aus Pressen, Roboter-Zellen oder Spritzgussanlagen nicht entweichen. Umgekehrt müssen Anlagen in der Lebensmittel- und Pharmaindustrie aus Hygienegründen vor eindringenden Fremdkörpern geschützt sein. Verschiedene Türen, Hauben oder Klappen helfen da weiter. Deren Stellung lässt sich nun mit einem magnetisch- oder RFID-kodierten, ECOLAB-zertifizierten Sicherheitssensor von Contrinex genau erkennen. Der Sensor arbeitet berührungslos, hat also keinen Verschleiß und damit lange Wartungsintervalle. Das magnetisch kodierte System (Typ 4 nach ISO 14119) macht die YSM-Sensorserie immun gegen gegenseitige Beeinflussung mehrerer Sensoren und ist höchst…

Hold tight! Practical Retaining Clips for Murrelektronik Connectors

The new and universal Murrelektronik retaining clips for M8 and M12 round plug connectors make fastening extremely easy in plants and machines. The compact retaining clips made of robust plastic can be used side-by-side in any number in a modular fashion. The modular feature allows numerous connectors to be secured next to one another. They replace cable ties which get the job done but are not nearly as practical as retaining clips in terms of installation and maintenance: retaining clips allow connectors to be disconnected and reconnected manually in one step without tools. The retaining clips are available in two sizes, one for classic M8 and M12 connectors and — with a somewhat…

New fire penetration seals for cable entry systems

icotek is now offering cable entry systems combined with fire penetration seals for the railway industry. The intumescent (foaming) IFPS fire penetration seals are based on expandable graphite and significantly increase their volume at high temperatures. The result is a barrier that prevents the penetration of flames as well as the heat transfer from one room to another, e.g. to protect passengers and staff in rail vehicles against onboard fire incidents. The IFPS seals are mounted on the back side of the cable entry frame (side facing the potential fire source). The icotek cable entry components with mounted seals IPFS are certified with fire barrier classifications E45 and EI30 when mounted on 18…

Reliable detection of transparent objects; Photoelectric sensor uses UV light

When it comes to detecting transparent objects, the limits of conventional photoelectric sensors are soon apparent. Since clear glass or plastic absorb only a small amount of light, there is little difference between emitted and received light levels. As a result, switching signals may be unclear. Contamination by dust or moisture on the lens – unavoidable in many areas of application – can lead to counting errors. Until now, such problems have been mitigated through the use of complex algorithms in the controller or by constant fine adjustment. A new approach offers a solution. The Contrinex TRU-C23 photoelectric sensor is ideally suited for the presence control of transparent objects. Its patented technology uses…
