inoCASE – stainless steel enclosures

ROLEC inoCASE – With extreme corrosion resistance and a smooth surface finish our new inoCASE stainless steel enclosures are shining.

inoCASE stainless steel enclosures are designed for demanding industrial applications. For example, in the food processing industry, medical applications, pharmaceuticals and process control industries the use of stainless steel is usually a requirement. The inoCASE range is manufactured in stainless steel to the standards 4310/A2 or 4404/A4. These high performance materials have a lasting and positive impact on the reliable function of the equipment.

Another important application is in areas near seawater, for example harbours, oil rigs and other offshore-installations. At these locations the high humidity and salinity quickly act to damage many materials. inoCASE enclosures on the other hand are characterised with high resistance to these conditions and will remain fully operational with a temperature range of -40 to +80 °C.

MICO modules approvec for NEC Class 2

Murrelektronik's MICO protective modules for UL508A control cabinets are a proven solution for intelligent power distribution and efficient branch circuit’s protection. 8 different MICO modules are now NEC Class 2 approved, so you can efficiently design your power distribution scheme.

MICO modules approvec for NEC Class 2

Class 2 Circuits are circuits with limited energy and a maximum power of 100 VA. According to the NEC & UL definition, class 2 circuits limit the risk of electrical fires and electric shocks due to their limited energy. Therefore, according to UL508A standard (for control cabinets), any component used and attached devices on the branch circuit in a Class 2 circuit don’t require investigation.

So far, an individual NEC Class 2 approved power supply was used to create a class 2 circuit and it required a lot of space. This method wasn't cost effective and caused a lot of wiring and planning effort.

With Murrelektronik's MICO NEC Class 2 approved module, it is now possible to design NEC Class 2 circuits even faster, in a more compact and cost effective way. All you need is a standard power supply unit (that doesn't necessarily has to be NEC Class 2 approved) combined with MICO to design two, four or eight separate load circuits with limited energy in a simple way. By connecting several MICO modules with the integrated bridging system, the number of channels can be increased up to a total current of 40 A. Components attached to the MICO’s marked NEC Class 2 outputs devices no longer need UL-approval.

Switch-off, visual warning, storing errors

MICO's proven functions like channel-specific switch-off in case of overload, visual warning notice, storing errors and the cascading start of the current paths provide additional benefits and enable using a smaller power supply and limit the operators need to enter the control cabinet.

EMC cable clamps

For process measurement and control equipment an increasingly higher level of protection against failure is required. EMI shielding and earthing is very important. The area where the cable shield is connected to the cabinet earth is a critical point. It is very important that the connection has a low resistance.

All icotek EMC cable clamps for shielding cable diameters from 1.5 to 29 mm have been tested utilising various frequency ranges and in all tests there was minimal leakage resistance. In large frequency fields, the cable clamps provide low resistance. Effective range is up to 1,000 MHz below 120 Ohms and 10 kHz to 100 MHz significant below 20 Ohms. icotek EMC cable clamps are proven to absorb electromagnetic interferences.

The EMC cable clamps offer a large contact area to the cable shield (see figure A). In comparison to conventional shielding brackets an up to 50% higher contact area can be achieved when using the SKL line (see figure B). The specified clamping range can be exceeded up to 10%.

SKL shield clamps are available in several mounting types like screwing them on metal plates or mounting them on DIN rails or bus bars. Properly sized and used in conjunction with cable ties, many EMC cable shielding products provide strain relief in accordance with EN 50262 / EN 62444.

If you need to install a larger amount of cables and they have to be shielded in a relatively small space, icotek offers EMC clamp assemblies RLF and RLFZ, an efficient EMI shielding solution for up to 12 cables.

You can configure your own customised clamp assembly for your application with our EMC Configurator. Individually choose your shield clamp sizes and positions according to your cable diameters.

As an alternative to our EMI shielding clamps we also offer classic spring loaded shielding brackets in various sizes and mounting types.

Cable assembly devices for cable entry frames / cable glands as well as earthing tapes which are a cost effective alternative to PE conductors round up our wide range of EMC cable shielding products.

With our icotek ProductFinder you can find the suitable EMC solution for your application.

Murrelektronik Emparro® 3~ Premium Power

Murrelektronik Emparro

Murrelektronik's Emparro family has a new member. The newly developed Emparro 3-phase power supplies for 24V applications are important components in quality power management systems. These units are not only extremely reliable but also extraordinarily efficient as a result of their integrated reserved power. However, they don't require much space in the cabinet. This is premium power from Murrelektronik!

Extremely Reliable

Reliable power supplies are an essential component to ensure maximum availability of machines and systems.  Therefore, reliability wasa high priority during development of these new 3-phase units. Their remarkably high MTBF value of about 1,000,000 hours shows this clearly. Achieving this MTBF is possible because of our high-quality components, the modern and slim circuit board design and the processor-controlled electronics. An integrated gas discharge valve protects the power supply from interfering pulses up to 6kV. Therefore, overvoltage coming from the mains, EMC interference (as caused by frequency converters) or contact bounces cannot cause any damage.

The up to 95% efficiency rating is another reason the Emparro 3-phase unit has such a long life span. The resulting power loss is very low which exposes the components to less thermal stress. The Emparro 3-phase efficiency rating is the same whether it is operating at full power or at any point along the load range including when it is operating at low capacity. This is an important benefit especially when compared to other power supplies.

Integrated Reserved Power

Emparro 3-phase power supply units have a special feature: they have reserved power integrated. They are designed in such a way that they can be operated with up to 20% overload in ambient temperatures of up to 45°C. The 5A models continuously supply 6A, 10A models 12A and 20A units 24A.

This offers two essential benefits. The first is that if additional loads have to be connected to a machine or a system, Emparro 3-phase offers the necessary reserve. The second is if the demand is close to the maximum of a power supply a larger power supply does not have to be used. Instead, the reserve can be used to meet the demand thus saving cabinet space and money that would have been spent on a larger power supply.

Emparro 3-phase also features 2 different boost functions: power boost and hyper boost. The Power Boost supplies 50% more power for up to 5 seconds while the Hyper Boost provides up to 400% more power for up to 20ms.

The Slimmest Power Supply Units on the Market

Emparro 3-phase power supplies are very compact: the 20A model fits in a 65mm wide housing. When compared to similar power supplies, this saves a lot of space in the cabinet.

The vibration resistant push-in terminals make installation tool free so connection maintenance becomes a thing of the past. While the integrated fuses help to reduce planning and wiring efforts.

Practical Features up to the Detail

Emparro 3-phase power supplies have many practical features up to the detail:

  • Continuous 2-phase operation
  • Parallel operation (Connect up to five Emparro 3-phase units to each other)
  • Alarm contact for over voltage, short circuit and temperature
  • Excellent EMC characteristics
  • LED indicators
  • Derating from 60°C
  • QR code for direct access to technical documentation

In the initial product launch, Emparro 3-phase will be available in 5, 10 and 20A models. By the end of the year, a 40A model will round out the product line.

Werma ClearSIGN compact

The complete Signal Tower Solution

The new ClearSIGN signal tower combines a slim unobtrusive design with cutting edge lighting technology and great functionality.

Signalling technology has moved significantly forward in a most logical manner. The homogenous light effect is particularly impressive and when a light is activated comes to life in a unique form. ClearSIGN uses purely LEDs which help create an unobtrusive minimalistic design with a high level of functionality. Using the latest electronic lighting controls, signal tower elements are illuminated to a previously unseen brightness and create a uniquely fl uid illumination effect.

If no status light is required, the signal tower stands elegantly in the background, appearing to be virtually invisible, melting perfectly into the background with its semi-transparent housing. Only when illuminated does the unique light effect burst into action.

A further feature is the exceptionally slim design which really does set it aside from other traditional signal tower designs.
ClearSIGN compact offers not only the proven 24V supply but for the fi rst time an IO Link version.

  • When inactive, the signal tower blends into the background
  • Clear signalisation using LEDs
  • Homogenous light picture
  • Optional powerful buzzer module - up to 85dB
  • Signal tower with integral MDC system (WIN)
  • The IO Link version offers many new applications

Murrelektronik Xtreme series - Extreme Conditions. Easy Installations.

murr xtreme

Parched fields with swirling dust. Icy streets treated with salt. Wet soil where harvesters fight the mud and dirt. All are demanding environments where heavy equipment has to deal with a variety of conditions.

Products used in mobile applications are exposed to wide temperature fluctuations and UV light. They are pelted by dust, treated with high pressure water (IP66K) and cleaners (IP69K) and sometimes they are even immersed (IP68). They have to withstand vibration and oils. In short, they have to meet the most extreme requirements.

To this point, single wire connections have been used in the construction of heavy equipment. This means many individual parts (cables, cable ties, ferrule ends) have to be connected by hand, big cable ducts are required and keeping it all tightly sealed is a permanent problem.

To solve these problems, we offer modular, pluggable solutions (the XTREME series) for mobile applications that are similar to those used in machine building. We know that by using pre-wired connection cables and distribution boxes, you can save a lot of installation time.

The XTREME Family is made up of:
M12 XTREME – rugged connection cables. All metal parts on these connectors are made of corrosion resistant stainless steel. The hex nut works with our torque wrench so you can ensure correct connections. An axial and radial locking mechanism, along with an innovatively shaped gasket, ensures stable connections even with vibration. The rugged PUR cable jacket is flexible and wear-resistant. The black material is resistant to UV light.

MSUD XTREME – the valve connector for extremely demanding conditions. The valve plugs are completely molded and absolutely sealed. The silicon gasket doesn't get brittle and it is fixed in a way that it cannot get lost. The screw is made of stainless steel. The jacket material is PUR. The valve plugs are equipped with an LED status display. The valve connectors include integrated suppression components.

MVP XTREME – the impact-resistant and fully potted distribution box. The plastic housing is resistant to UV light. The threaded connections are made of stainless steel. Ultra bright LEDs make it easy to recognize the operating state. MVP XTREME has eight M12 ports that can transfer either one or two signals. The molded PUR homerun cables are suitable for C-track applications and available in lengths from 3 to 30 meters.

Typical examples of mobile applications:

  • Agricultural Machinery (tractors, combine harvesters)
  • Forestry Machines
  • Construction Machinery (road and tunnel construction)
  • Street Cleaners, Garbage Trucks
  • Industrial Trucks (forklift and pallet trucks)
  • Cranes (stationary and mobile installations)

Puls PIANO - Reliable DIN-Rail Power Supplies for Mid-Market Applications

puls piano

We now extend our product range to new market segments. Applying new concepts from design to manufacturing, the PIANO series offers reliability, service life-time and efficiency figures usually available only in more expensive products.

The Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) figures of the PIANO-Series are as high as 1.5 million hours and the minimum service life-time is typically 40,000 hours. Efficiency figures vary, depending on the version, from 90.5% up to 94.5%. The 240W version consumes a width of only 49mm on the DIN-Rail, therefore it offers the same size benefit as the newest and most costly products from other vendors.

Robust even for demanding applications, these purely convection cooled units can operate from -10°C (some units even from -25°C) up to +70°C. Power derating is typically only required above +55°C. The PIANO series is easy to use because it clicks smoothly onto any standard DIN-Rail and includes large-sized terminals which makes wiring simple and effortless. Furthermore, the PIANO series also offers a DC-OK signal that can be used to monitor the unit’s output voltage.

Additional cost saving is possible in applications where global use is not needed and a nominal input voltage of 200-240V is sufficient. By eliminating the burden associated with a universal input range, products optimized for the high range provide a much better cost vs. performance position.

Currently available are 24V/5A and 24V/10A models for input voltages from 200-240V. Additional products suitable for all global input voltages from 100V-240V will be available in Q2/2015.
The new PIANO series allows users to save on costs without compromising on the benefits of a reliable, efficient and easy-to-use power supply.

Contrinex photoelectric distance sensors

With the new C23 and C55 series, Contrinex not only meets the demand for photoelectric sensors for ultra-precise distance measurement, but also for the measurement of very large distances. The cubic C23 sensors use triangulation to measure distances up to 200 mm with extreme precision. The C55 Series uses the time-of-flight (TOF) method for highly reliable measurement of large distances from 100 mm to 5000 mm.

C23 – precise measurement in miniature cubic housing

Measuring just 20 x 34 x 12 mm, the very small size and IP69K protection rating of the C23 housing make this sensor suitable for numerous and varied applications. Typical among these is the area of roll control. Here, C23 distance sensors measure the thickness of material on a roll for control purposes and end-of-roll detection. The analog range can be adjusted to set the 1 to 10 V analog output to the minimum and maximum thickness of the roll. Contrinex C23 photoelectric distance sensors are available for two basic measurement ranges: 20…80 mm and 30…200 mm.

C55 – measurement of large distances with time-of-flight technology

Time-of-flight (TOF) technology calculates distance by measuring the time light takes to travel from the sensor to the target and back to the sensor. Thanks to this technology, compact C55 distance measuring sensors offer long detection ranges with excellent precision. The same TOF technology is used for a long range background suppression type with 2 independently settable outputs.

A possible application for C55 distance sensors can be found in forklifts for warehouse logistics. Here they check for the presence of boxes on warehouse shelves and determine if sufficient space is available on the shelf for the next box.

Common features

Measurement with C23 and C55 distance sensors is largely independent of color and surface texture. Results are characterized by high accuracy and repeatability. In both types of sensors, the measurements are transmitted through an adjustable analog output. The sensors also offer a second output for a switching window, which is defined by teach-in.

The sensor housings have an IP69K enclosure rating. In addition, the C55 is Ecolab certified and therefore suitable for the food industry.
