KEL-DPZ-CLICK multi-membrane cable entry plates

for snap-in mounting, M25 - M63 / IP65 / IP66 / IP68 KEL-DPZ-CLICK cable entry plates are designed to route and seal cables without connectors or fibre optics (from 1.5 mm to 22 mm in diameter) in limited space. The new variant of the proven cable entry plate KEL-DPZ is snapped into the cut-out directly from the front. This significantly reduces the assembly time. Alternatively, the new variant can be fastened with a locknut. The KEL-DPZ-CLICK series have a thread to fit in metric cut-outs from M25 to M63. Thus cut-outs for metric cable glands can be used. The assembly of the KEL-DPZ-CLICK with unterminated cables or pneumatic hoses can be done quick and easy.…

DIN rail power supply units: How the service lifetime is determined by the temperature

As a system engineer, it is important to have a reliable and long-lasting power supply on which you can rely. Failure of the unit after a short time is annoying, costly and time consuming. Heat is the archenemy to long service life and reliability: The minimum lifetime of power supplies is determined by the lifetime of the electrolytic capacitors. The warmer it is, the faster the electrolytic capacitors dry out. Even a temperature rise of +10°C in the power supply cuts in half their service lifetime. In order to achieve the longest possible service lifetime for DIN rail power supplies, it is essential that the device is protected against overheating. The cooling concept…

For a machine’s life-long application

Harvesting machines, drills, special transporters or snow removal machines: Those machines face harsh and inhospitable conditions. However, not all of the used technical parts are proofed against such demanding environments. For the emergency-stop safety area, there is now a solution: The companies Data Panel and Schlegel joined forces and developed an especially robust emergency-stop that withstands even the hardest of operating conditions. Mobile machines operating in outdoor areas and dealing with weather or excessive cleaning have to be prepared for such applications - which is not always the case, confirms Data Panel CEO Jörg Krautter, "The feedback from the market was more than clear." This feedback kick-started the whole emergency-stop project: "The requirement…
