KDR-ESR gland plates with slide frames

for Rittal, nVent Hoffman & Häwa enclosures / IP54 The KDR-ESR is a one-piece plate to be assembled on enclosure bases. Slide frames for the KEL-U cable entry frames are already pre-assembled. On some gland plate types KEL-JUMBO cable entry frames can be mounted as well. After installing all cables into the KEL-U frames, they are easily and quickly inserted into the slide frames and fixed. During maintenance, the KEL-U frames are removed without tools from the slide frames. Due to the combination KDR-ESR and KEL-U cable entry frames, a rating of IP54 is achieved (with correct selection of cable grommets). Slide frames which are no longer required, are closed with BPK-SNAP blank…

MICO – Solutions for Intelligent Power Distribution

Complex power supply systems with many components require reliable load protection. Switch mode power supplies are the core of these systems since they electronically monitor output voltage and output current. If there is a short circuit or an overload, protective devices downstream (for example circuit breakers) react slower than the power supply and do not ensure selectivity. This can cause critical situations like voltage drops or even cable fires.Our compact MICO modules help eliminate these problems: MICO is an essential component for protecting power supply systems! Target-oriented protection is a big challenge for modern power supply systems. MICO is an intelligent power distribution system that meets this challenge! Errors are found quickly while…

KEL-SCDP multi-range cable entry grommets

pluggable, for single cables with diameters up to 36 mm / IP65 With the KEL-SCDP cable entry grommet, single cables, hoses, and conduits can be routed and sealed at a rating of IP65. Its unique advantage is the large sealing range. The single circular membrane can be peeled away to accommodate the specific diameter of the cable or hose. For this purpose, only a small hole between the rings needs to be pierced. Then the corresponding ring can be removed. The peeled-off area is always round, ensuring a secure seal around cable/hose. Another advantage is the high mounting flexibility. The KEL-SCDP can simply be plugged into cut-outs with wall thicknesses from 1.5 to…

Trafag revolutionises the measuring of highly dynamic pressure curves with ASIC

Trafag has succeeded in unifying the highly dynamic response behavior of a test bench sensor and the extreme robustness of a mobile hydraulic pressure transmitter by combining thin-film-on-steel measuring cells and an ASIC developed in-house. The Trafag ASIC TX with an innovative parallel mixed-signal structure is the key to a response behaviour at nearly unlimited speed. In many applications, above all in the testing field, the aim is to record highly dynamic pressure curves, e.g in order to analyse the opening and closing performance of valves, track pressure curves of explosions and explosive pressure expansions or to examine brief pressure peaks in hydraulic systems. Transmitters for industrial applications on the market are generally…
