Phoenix Contact RIFLINE Complete

Phoenix Contact's RIFLINE Complete is an innovative line of general purpose, “ice cube” relays consisting of universal ice-cube-style relays in multiple form factors and contact arrangements. From slim 6.2mm interface relays to 4PDT ice-cube relays, octal relays, and 3PDT miniature power contactors, RIFLINE Complete offers a solution for virtually every switching application. The RIFLINE complete modular relay system is available as completely assembled modules and as individual components.

The newly expanded RIFLINE Complete relay family allows you to use CLIPLINE complete terminal block accessories for bridging, marking and testing. Through the use of a universal modular function plug on RIF-1, RIF-2, RIF-3, and RIF-4 bases, you have the choice of a wide range of relay protective modules, operation indicator LEDs, and timer modules to complement the standard function of the relay itself. The available 24VDC timer module offers the unique ability to convert any standard industrial relay into a timer relay in one easy step.

What makes these products unique?

Industrial relays have remained virtually unchanged for many decades. RIFLINE Complete off ers sleek packaging, a wide range of available sizes and contact arrangements, and an intuitive modular design to ensure high productivity with modern aesthetics – all at price points competitive with leading, low-cost, industrial relay competitors. 

Phoenix Contact brings industrial relays into the 21st century with screw and PT push-in terminations, bases that allow for easy marking, and innovative bridging functions. Accessories for RIFLINE Complete work directly with CLIPLINE complete terminal blocks, reducing the need to stock additional part numbers and products.

Banner Engineering K50 and K30 Pro Series Software Indicators

Banner Engineering's Pro indicators are programmable multi-color indicators that can be configured with a variety of colors and animation options in-field. This capability was formerly only available with Banner’s IO-Link indicators, but it is now available with discretely controlled indicators thanks to the new Pro Editor Software.

The Pro Editor software allows you to easily customize indicators with a wide variety of color and animation options. It is an ideal solution for you who don’t use IO-Link, but who want more control and customization than a standard indicator provides. The Pro Editor software is currently compatible with K30 Pro and K50 Pro models and must be used with a Pro Converter Cable, which is sold separately.

  • Give your machines a voice: A wide variety of color and animation options allow for more intuitive indication in the visual factory. For example, use a “50/50 rotate” animation to show machine warmup time so operators can clearly identify when the machine is ready for use. In addition, distinct colors can help users quickly identify error information with no confusion from standard indicator colors. OEMs can also use color to reinforce their brand and add a unique look to their machines. 

  • Gain control of your supply chain: Programmable indicators make supply chains more efficient by allowing customers to standardize on one model that can be customized in the field. This saves inventory costs and reduces spare parts for end users and OEMs alike. The Pro Editor makes it easy to save and load configuration files onto the device.

  • Customize indication without additional lead time: Compatible indicators work out of the box with seven standard colors, with no programming required. From there, you can modify indication as needed. Choose from a wide variety of colors and animations to match process requirements, and preview settings on the device before deployment. To change settings, simply reprogram the device.

Banner Engineering's K50U Series Wireless Ultrasonic Sensors

Banner Engineering's K50U Series Wireless Ultrasonic Sensors are now available in models developed specifically for use in small tanks, totes, barrels, and 55-gallon drums. These models have a 100 - 1000 mm sensing range. The smaller dead zone (0 - 99 mm) enables greater precision in measuring and monitoring content levels in small containers and other space constrained deployments.

  • Wireless Connectivity: Used in combination with a Performance Series 1-Wire Serial Node or a Multihop Modbus Radio, a K50U will provide content level information from remote and mobile assets without the expense or hassle of running communication wire
  • Easy Installation: The K50U has a 1¼” (3.175 cm) NPT connection that simplifies installation on a wide range of containers. Brackets for the K50U (sold separately) support the sensor and a wireless node or radio, essentially forming a single unit that is easy to mount and move from container to container.
  • Long Battery Life: Lithium batteries will power both the K50U and the connected wireless node or radio for two or more years at default sample rates.
