Spring connection with PUSH IN technology

26th September, 2016|Automation and Control|

Increase efficiency in installation without compromising on safety. The innovative PUSH IN direct plug connector reduces connection times for solid wires and those with crimped on wire-end ferrules by up to 50 percent compared to clamping yoke terminals. The conductor is simply inserted in the clamping unit until it stops and that's it, you have

High Inrush Current in Lighting Technology

7th September, 2016|Automation and Control|

Lighting technology has been changing for some years now. Traditional light bulbs are rapidly being replaced with energy-efficient light sources such as fluorescent lamps and LEDs. All of these lamps have one thing in common: they require electronic control gear (ECG). The contacts on conventional relays wear out very quickly if used for triggering these

Compact DRI relays with plug-in pins

30th August, 2016|Automation and Control|

Accelerate installation and service in confined spaces Compact DRI relays with robust, industry-compliant plug-in pins. In an industrial environment, service work needs to be carried out quickly, simply and reliably. Increasingly compact cabinets and miniaturised components in confined spaces are becoming a challenge. If components need to be replaced, the bended relay pins often cause

Modular, decentralised facility concepts – FieldPower®

8th June, 2016|Automation and Control|

Decentrally generate and distribute 24 V control voltages FieldPower® 10 A power supply for cabinet-free installation concepts In order to implement materials handling facilities in intra-logistics and production logistics in line with deadline and cost specifications, pre-assembled field boxes are required for the individual machine functions, which are type-tested and easy to combine and

FreeCon Contactless maintenance-free power transmission

8th June, 2016|Automation and Control|

“WOW” Say goodbye to production downtimes with our FreeCon Contactless maintenance-free power transmission | Weidmüller UK In industrial automation, electrical power is usually transmitted via plug-in connectors. With this “conventional” solution, burned out, warped and dirty contacts are common causes of time-consuming and costly production downtimes. This is especially true of applications with frequent plugging

Weidmuller ACT20P Gateway

6th May, 2016|Automation and Control|

When it comes to recording analogue measured values, compliance with safety regulations and maximum precision are basic prerequisites for industrial plants. Basic security functions, such as switching units on and off, monitoring actuators or controlling temperature and pressure, require the support of high-precision signal converters. With our ACT20P product we are providing you with a

IDEC Releases Enhanced 5.7” HMI HG2G-5T Series
