SMC Pneumatics Series TUZ Wear Resistant Tubing


TUZ wear resistant tubing from SMC Pneumatics is a standardization of the X73 option for series TU polyurethane. By incorporating fluoropolymer additives with their polyurethane resin, SMC has created a tubing that has the flexibility and other performance properties of polyurethane with an increased abrasion resistance. This feature can help extend the life of tubing in many dynamic applications where the tubing may come in contact with other tubing, wires, or fixtures such as in a cable carrier.

Another benefit of the additive and abrasion resistance is that the tubing is not "sticky" like normal polyurethane and can be easily pulled thru fixed conduit or other static passages.

Han Axial Screw Technology



Harting's axial screw termination technology guarantees a safe and reliable connection. Well proven in applications such as railcars, where the connector is exposed to shocks and vibration, the advantage of axial screw termination is the extremely compact contact which, unlike crimping, does not require any special tools to terminate to wires.


Han Easy-Hood Connectors



The growing trend in using different and complex cable variants in one connector poses a challenge for professional cable assemblers in regards of technique and pricing. HARTING has developed Han® Easy-Hoods, offering vertically split two-part shells with new assembling possibilities. The assembly process can now be changed to a more modular production approach.

The interior wiring can be easily managed. All manual movements are changed from axial to vertical processes leading to multiple automation possibilities. The Han® Easy-Hood offers a wide application range with easy access for maintenance.


Han-Quick Lock Terminators



Harting's new termination technology combines reliability and simple handling with the space saving benefits of crimp technology. Han-Quick Lock® is optimally designed for high contact densities and thus has a considerable advantage compared to other termination technologies. No other technology is this simple, space-saving and fast. Additionally, this vibration-resistant termination requires no special tooling.


Han-Power S with Han Q 8/0 Connector




Harting's Han-Power® S connector is suitable for the assembly of a serial power bus. Once the energy supply is assembled, the Han-Power® S can be inserted at any place along the power cable. The cable mantle is removed and the conductor is installed without interruption in the IDC.

The Han-Power® S is suitable for cables with single strands manufactured according to DIN VDE 0281/ DIN VDE 0295 with wire gauges of 2.5 mm² up to 6 mm². For the distribution of the device, Han-Compact® hoods or cable to cable housings are used.



Han M12 Crimp Connectors



The newly developed Han® M12 Crimp by Harting is smaller than comparable M12 connectors with IDC-termination currently available. The new type does not have any negative impact on handling and no special tools are required. Standard tools and contacts can be used. In addition, there are less single parts, to allow a quicker termination procedure.

High Voltage and EMC Shielding Inline Connector for Alternative Power Systems

Tyco Electronics has developed a 2-position HVA 400 plug and cap inline connector system that is designed specifically for handling high voltage and EMC shielding applications for alternative powered systems (APS). 

The new wire-to-wire, sealed connector system is based on a 4.0mm pin and socket terminal system and a robust and scalable compact package occupying approximately 111x41x50mm (LxWxH for an 8-position connector). The temperature class rating is -400C° to 1250C° (underhood); wire size ranges from 3.0mm2 to 6.0mm2. The 4.0mm terminal is capable of carrying 33 amps (continuous) @ 1250C° on 3mm2 wire and the nominal voltage rating is 300Vdc (550V max). 

The connector is uniquely designed to accommodate an optional High Voltage Interlock (HVIL) integrated into the system. The optional HVIL minimizes the risk of exposed live terminals or destructive arcing. Due to its flexible design, the connector is capable of employing multiple low-voltage terminals (depending upon OEM preference) or as a standalone high voltage connector. 

The Tyco Electronics 2-position HVA 400 connector is "touch safe" and is designed and built in accordance to USCAR-2 (on-engine vibration profile), ingress protection class (DIN 40-050 or IEC 60529), IP6K9K (mated), IP2B (unmated) AIAG, QS9000 and is RoHS ready.



Hot-Pluggable Connectors for Lighting Ballasts


A new connector for fluorescent ballast lighting applications provides a hot-pluggable disconnect to allow safe field servicing without exposing personnel to electrical shock hazards. Available in 2 or 3 positions, LIGHT-N-LOK connectors feature an integral strain relief to maximize wire retention by preventing inadvertent wire twisting and pullout. Wire retention exceeds 25 pounds (11.3 kg). Dual squeeze-to-release latches provide additional security by preventing unintentional disconnects. 

The connectors use a tool-less poke-in termination of 18 AWG (0.82 mm2) wire for fast, easy installation in the factory or field. With a rounded, snag-resistant design, the UL 94V-0-rated housings fit into standard 5/8-inch diameter (2 position) and 7/8-inch-diameter (3 position) knockout openings for easy use in both new and retrofit applications. 

The products can be supplied as assembled connector sets, with or without flying leads. LIGHT-N-LOK connectors are designed for commercial lighting per UL 2459 and meet the latest requirements of both the U.S. National and Canadian Electrical Codes.

The new NP-Series of HMI (Human Machine Interface) products have been designed with the OEM machine builder in mind. They provide the right set of features and functions that OEM’s value and are competitively priced against other vendors of OEM-focused HMI’s. Machine builders can choose from NP-Series models with 3 or 6 function keys with 3.8” monochrome, 5.7” monochrome or 5.7” color displays.

By introducing this line of HMI’s Omron can now offer two classes of HMI.

  • The traditional NS-Series of terminals that keeps getting richer with features and functions. Watch for an upcoming announcement about the NS-Series and an even greater set of functions.
  • New NP-Series of HMI’s that offers basic essential HMI functions at a truly affordable price.
Improved Connectivity Advantages

Omron also offers a perfectly matched series of PLC’s that the NP complements perfectly. The CP1L and CP1H series of PLC’s are the perfect PLC for small to medium size machines. The pricing of the NP is more in line with the pricing of the CP1 PLC’s thus allowing customers to buy more of their control solution from a single vendor. When the PLC and HMI come from the same manufacturer customers also realize improved connectivity.

With Omron’s NP, customers can connect directly to Omron Temperature Controllers without a PLC in between. Additionally, there are pre-designed screens available that allow customers to connect, monitor, and control the Temperature Controllers. Customers can be up and running in minutes instead of hours or even days.

When connecting to an Omron PLC, customers can use Programming Console function to view ladder, change set-points, and even modify ladder from the NP HMI terminal. This helps customers to make necessary changes to ladder without connecting a laptop.

Key Features and Benefits
  • Replaceable battery - Provides longer service life
  • USB Slave and Host - Allows upload and download of applications and connection of devices
  • RS-232 and RS-422/485 serial ports - Communicate with two different PLC’s at once on separate networks. Use the RS-422 to communicate further distances.
