Quint Power power supplies power range up to 100 W

Quint Power power supplies range up to 100 W 

The Quint Power power supplies from Phoenix Contact in the power range up to 100 W are now also available with special voltages of 5 V and 12 V. Three new single-phase power supply units (5 V DC with 5 A, 12 V DC with 2.5 A and 7.5 A) supplement the portfolio, which until now has included 24 V devices in the power range of up to 100 W.

For small sizes the power supply units provide high system availability with preventive function monitoring and power reserve – even in the low power range. Dynamic boost with up to 200% of the nominal power for 5s ensures that difficult loads start. The system can be easily extended by static boost which continuously provides up to 125% of the nominal power. The power supplies also have a high efficiency of 92.4% and a long service life, with low power dissipation and low heating.

Selectable power thresholds and DC OK signaling enable output parameter monitoring tailored to the application. The preventive function monitoring feature warns of critical operating states before faults occur. Push-in connection technology makes commissioning quick and easy. The narrow, flat design of the devices also saves space in control cabinets. The power supply units have a DC input voltage range from 88 V DC to 350 V DC.

PSRmodular configurable safety system

PSR modular configurable safety system

The comprehensive PSRmodular configurable safety system portfolio consists of various function modules starting from an overall width of just 22.5 mm. They are equipped with screw or Push-in connection and can be used for applications up to PL e and SIL3. Using a TBUS DIN rail connector, the safety modules can be arranged next to each other without configuration. This allows the system to be flexibly adapted to the customer’s specific requirements.

In addition to monitoring emergency stop signals, safety door locks, light grids, and pressure mats, modules are also available for safe motion monitoring. This means that safety functions can be implemented in accordance with EN 61800-5-2 for various encoder signals, such as proximity switches, TTL, HTL or SIN/COS.

At the heart of the system there are two basic modules with different performance ratings, which also support safety-related communication between modules. A safe analog module for monitoring 0/4 – 20 mA or 0 – 10 V signals completes the range. When it comes to process data communication, you can choose from any of the common bus protocols, such as PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, Modbus/TCP or EtherCAT. Configuration is simply carried out using the PSRmodular software, which is equipped with comprehensive functions and diagnostic options. The user does not need any previous programming knowledge. This enables the creation of machine and process applications with up to 160 safe I/Os. The system will be available as of the first quarter of 2020.

Self-securing conductor and cable marking with oval marking sleeve

Self-securing conductor and cable marking with oval marking sleeve

The new WMS-OT HF marking sleeves from Phoenix Contact with large openings enable you to quickly and easily push markings onto cables or conductors. Owing to the oval shape, the marking sleeve stays securely in place of its own accord and cannot slip on the carrier.

The products supplied on a roll are available in the colours white and yellow. The continuous format can be cut to any length. The marking sleeves are particularly suitable for conductor and cable marking in the railroad industry, since they are made of halogen-free polyolefin and are approved to DIN EN 45545-2 (R22/R23/R24:HL3). Phoenix Contact provides efficient thermotransfer roll printers to facilitate easy marking of marking sleeves and many other materials.

Hammond 1552: elegant and functional hand-held enclosures

Hammond 1552: elegant and functional hand-held enclosures

Hammond Electronics has launched its new 1552 family of hand-held enclosures. Initially available in six sizes, the IP54 rated UL94-V0 flame-retardant ABS enclosure features an ergonomic design that fits comfortably into the hand, enabling it to be used for long period in applications such as a machine controller or an electric hoist control. The end panels are removable for easy modification, and for use with flying cables, an alternative end panel with an integral rubberised cord protector and a strain relief bracket is available. An optional wall mounted holder allows the unit to be stored in a convenient location when not in use. The 1552 can also be used as a desktop enclosure. All the launch sizes are 50mm wide and either 22 or 30mm high, with both heights available in lengths of 70, 110 and 150mm. All sizes are available as standard in black and grey with a satin texture.

A recess for a membrane keyboard or a display is moulded in the top face and PCB standoffs are moulded in the base section. The top is secured to the base with four self-tapping colour-coded screws; snap closures are fitted to the centre of the longer units to prevent bowing.

Reliably protect LED applications

Reliably protect LED applications

The type 2 surge protective device from the Blocktrab series from Phoenix Contact protects all lighting systems and is particularly suitable for LED applications.

LED technology has become indispensable in the everyday world. In street, tunnel or commercial lighting, LEDs are everywhere. To safeguard the infrastructure, it is essential to ensure error-free functioning of illumination. However, the surge currents and overvoltages generated in the grid can significantly exceed the dielectric strength of LED light columns, for example. Therefore the lights may fail for reasons other than their position, which exposes them to lightning strikes. Effective surge protection can help to avoid these risks.

Owing to its compact design, you can also easily retrofit the BLT-T2 surge protective device in existing systems. The protective device can be used in diverse LED applications and offers a variety of connection and installation methods.
