Rittal Blue e+ Enclosure Cooling Units

Rittal's Blue e+ is a completely new generation of cooling units that represents a quantum leap in terms of cost-effectiveness and energy conservation due to its speed-regulated components and patented heat pipe technology. As well as providing far higher energy efficiency than existing cooling solutions, the units also offer a range of powerful new features that provide longer component life, flexibility and ease of use.
  • Efficiency - 75% energy saved due to speed-regulated components and heat pipe technology
  • Versatility - Suitable for international use due to multi-voltage support
  • Safety - Longer service life of the components inside the enclosure and the cooling unit due to component-friendly cooling
  • User-friendliness - Intuitive operation due to touch display and intelligent interfaces

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Analog Output Fiber Amplifiers

The DF-G3 fiber amplifiers were developed by Banner Engineering to provide world-class long-range detection. It has 1.33x longer range than the DF-G2 at 1 ms response speed, and 2.5x longer range than the DF-G2 at 24 ms response speed. The increased sensing power enables longer detection for all applications and detection of very small targets and features when used with very small core fiber assemblies. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets, and increases detection sensitivity when using array fiber assemblies for web guiding or area detection for part ejection applications.

  • World-class long-range sensing capability, more than 3m (10 ft) with opposed mode fibers or 1m (3 ft) with diffuse mode fibers.
  • Easy to read dual digital displays show both signal level and threshold simultaneously.
  • Simple user interface ensures easy sensor set-up and programming via displays and switches/buttons or remote input teach wire.
  • Cross-talk avoidance function allows seven inspections in dense sensing point applications.
  • Energy efficient light resistance enables stable detection in industrial lighting environments.
  • High power amplifier with small core fibers enables precise positioning of small components.
  • Multi-function remote wire allows control of the LED, outputs, remote teach input, and cross-talk avoidance.
  • Operator control of the sensitivity (hysteresis) provides additional detection sensitivity, or a stabilized output depending on the application details.
  • Single discrete output and single analog output: Analog output is proportional to signal strength and can be independently scaled

Crydom NOVA22 Solid State Relays

Crydom, the global expert in solid state switching technology, is pleased to announce the new NOVA22 AC and DC output solid state relays. NOVA22 solid state relays are available in both DIN Rail (DR22 series) and Panel mount (PM22 series) packages.

  • DIN rail models rated up to 35A and panel mount models rated up to 95A
  • 22.5mm wide package
  • 4-32VDC, 90-280VAC/DC or 18-52VAC/DC input control options
  • Relay or contactor configuration
  • Innovative “Elevator” screw for easy connection of ring terminals
  • LED input indicator
  • Overvoltage protection
  • Zero voltage or instantaneous turn-on output
  • 100kA Short Circuit Current Rating
  • Maximum I2t value of 8320 A2sec
These features make NOVA22 SSRs unique in the market, outperforming competing products on each front with a broader working temperature range (-40°C to +80°C), and higher resistance to surge current (1290A x 20 msec). High I2t models (8320 A2S) allow use of the solid state relay in conjunction with circuit breakers instead of fuses allowing short circuit protection in Type 2 Coordination per IEC 60947-4-1. Contactor configuration models include a plug-in connector for the control input, available in either standard “screw” or “spring” terminals.

The DR22 series is available in either AC output voltage (48 to 600VAC) or DC output voltage (1 to 200VDC). Current rating at standard 40°C is 20A, 30A and 35A (only for AC output) and high I2t value (8320 A2S), making NOVA22 the only 22.5mm DIN rail mount solid state relay with 35A @ 40°C on the market!

The PM22 series is available with AC output voltage (48 to 600VAC). Current ratings include 25A, 50A and 95A and high I2t value (8320 A2S) making NOVA22 the only 22.5mm panel mount solid state relay with 95A on the market! Crydom also offers the new HSP-7 thermal pad available for purchase as an accessory or already assembled on the solid state relay to facilitate installation.

Crydom’s NOVA22 DR22 Series is cULus Listed and PM22 Series is cURus approved according to UL508 standard. AC Output devices are also TUV certified according to EN 62314 standard. Other certifications include; CE compliant to the Low Voltage and EMC Directives and to the RoHS and China RoHS Directives.

Turck minifast Control Power Wiring Solution

Turck has developed a new connectivity solution that is compatible with the control power connection system utilized with Rockwell ArmorStart distributed motor starters. Turck’s Minifast control power offering gives an alternative solution to have drop in replacements that tap directly into the existing E-stop control wiring circuits.

Turck’s solution uses a 5-pin connector with the same pinout as a standard 6-pin Minifast connector. The connector has the pin #4 location on the connector plugged, which ensures it cannot mate with either a standard 5-pin or 6-pin Minifast connector. This prevents any chance of mis-wiring to any other existing connectors in the system and provides a trusted alternative 5-wire solution with the added benefit of quick delivery lead times.

“We had requests from our customers for an alternative connectivity solution that would work in these applications,” said Jay Bartsias, Senior Product Manager for Turck. “We were able to answer their needs by utilizing our existing Minifast components while providing a solution that fits seamlessly into the existing systems.”

The new Minifast product provides the same trusted features as Turck’s standard Minifast offering, including NEMA 1, 3, 4, 6P and IEC IP67.
