Decentralized Automation Solutions

Advanced electrical installation concepts connect all sensors and actuators in machines or systems to the controller or cloud solution in the most economical way. The key to the best possible electrical installation is to consider all phases of the machine or system’s lifecycle. The manufacturers of machines and systems should also benefit from the chosen electrical installation concept, as should the future operators. The focus is on low "total cost of ownership" and a "life cycle" that is profitable for all parties involved. How do manufacturers benefit? Standardization and simplification of planning and programming processes Considerable simplification of wiring Reduction of the space required in the control cabinet Simple assembly (Plug & Play)…

RFID Washdown

The Washdown family of full-metal, low-frequency components has been designed for demanding wash-in-place applications within the food, pharmaceutical and other industries. Passive tags from this family offer the highest mechanical and chemical resistance, being fully sealed, laser welded and made of food-grade stainless steel (V4A / AISI 316L). As a result, they are highly corrosion-proof, saltwater resistant and withstand aggressive solvents. With an enclosure rating of IP68 & IP69K, Washdown components resist high-pressure cleaning and function reliably in water. They have also been optimized for a wide operating temperature range: -40 to +125°C (-40 to +257°F). If the ContriNET protocol is used, LF RWMs can share one network with HF types, including the full range of interfaces.…

CP5 series: Wide range of new 120W DIN rail power supplies

In the 120W power class, the new CP5.121 (12V, 10A) and CP5.241 (24V, 5A) power supplies are setting new benchmarks. With a width of just 32mm and a reduced depth of 102mm, this is the most compact DIN rail power supply in this performance class. The lifetime of the 24V version is 166,000 hours* and the 12V version achieves a minimum of 110,000 hours – in both cases under extreme conditions of 230Vac, continuous full load and +40°C ambient temperature. Advanced topology These high values are achieved using an LLC resonance converter. This advanced converter topology is atypical for a 120W power supply. The result sets a new record in efficiency levels for 120W power supplies: 94.0% (CP5.121) and 94.3% (CP5.241) and puts both…

We opened a new production hall

Since its inception the company Varga Elektronik to this day, we were guided by the pronouncement of the inventor Thomas Edison that success is 1% luck and 99% hard work. The basis for our overall business is based on these foundations.The company started work in 2005 with only one employee in a garage of a family home and a representation of 6 reputable companies for industrial electronics. After one year, we started cooperation with the Swiss company ETA SA, a member of the world-renowned SWATCH GROUP. Initially, cooperation was based on the production of empty electrical cabinets. Today, after 13 years of successful co-operation, from the production of empty electromagnetics, we came to…

Full Inox Chip-Immune inductive sensors

New inductive sensors for metal machining processes Contrinex announces a new series of Chip-Immune sensors with NPN polarity to complement the existing range of PNP types. As a result, this sensor family is ready not only for metal-machining systems with positive logic (sink current; PNP) but also those with negative logic (source current; NPN). Machines for turning, milling, drilling or grinding metal will inevitably generate abrasion debris. For inductive sensors, which by their nature detect metal objects, this debris presents a difficult challenge. When sensors are covered with lubricant containing metal chips, there is a risk that they will supply incorrect signals to the control system. For these applications, sensor specialist Contrinex now…

The first DIN rail power supplywith an integrated IO-Link port

The power supply is placed at a central nodal point in the system. There is more than just current flowing. A power supply records a significant amount of real-time information that is of particular interest to the operating firm as well as the system manufacturer. This data can help increase system availability and reduce maintenance and operating costs. This means the power supply has the potential – in parallel with its function as a converter – to also act as a sensor and therefore make a significant contribution to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The DIMENSION QT40.241-B2 sees PULS bringing to market the first 3-phase DIN rail power supply (24V/40A) that makes…
