Solid State Relays & Contactors

CARLO GAVAZZI is proud to announce our newest generation of solid state relays and contactors, the RG Series. This new range of AC and DC solid state switching devices is an ideal solution for switching resistive, slightly inductive and motor loads, thanks to the reduced size per unit – starting at only 17.5mm width, up to 85AAC (15Hp) switching, nominal ratings at 40ºC and high SCCR rating of 100kA.

RGS Solid State Relay: The RGS Series provides the market with the slimmest single phase SSR of its kind, with merely 17.5mm of width. Maximum output voltage is 600VAC with a current rating of 90AAC (with proper heat sink). Both the AC and DC control versions are available covering a wide range of input voltages.

RGC Solid State Contactors: This series offers an integrated heat sink solid state solution with the smallest frame size rating of 20 & 23AAC (£3Hp) in just a 17.5mm width, 30AAC/5Hp (22.5mm wide), 40AAC/7.5Hp (35mm wide) 60AAC/10Hp and 85AAC/15Hp (70mm width). Ratings are specified with a surrounding temperature of 40ºC with derating available up to 80ºC. The RGH Series distinguishes itself from the RGC Series with its higher blocking voltage of 1600Vp and high I2T values, thus making the RGH Series ideal when protection by MCBs is desired.

RGS1D/RGC1D DC Output Solid State Relays: This new series of 1-phase solid state DC relays is primarily intended for switching of strings in photovoltaic panels. The output voltage ratings cover the voltage range of 24 to 1,000VDC. The RGS1D Series is rated up to maximum rating of 25ADC (with proper heatsink), while the RGC1D Series (which is an integrated heat sink solution in a 17.5mm width) is rated up to 15ADC, with a surrounding ambient temperature of 60ºC.

The output power terminals on the RGS, RGC and RGH Series can be specified in either a contactor configuration (type ‘E’) or in a solid state relay configuration (type ‘U’). The RG Series solid state relays and contactors are best suited for resistive, slightly inductive and motor loads. Common applications can be found in the HVAC, food and beverage, packaging, plastics, printing, glass and transportation industries.

TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…

TURCK’s BL Compact Family Collects Analog and Digital Signals at the Source

TURCK’s BL Compact system is a revolutionary modular I/O solution for collecting a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, machine-mountable device over DeviceNet™, CANopen and PROFIBUS ®.

Up to two signals types can be combined in any combination in the BL Compact system, including RFID and analog, digital and serial—and more. The BL Compact system may be customized to suit a user’s specific needs, so that devices may be added to an existing network and signals may be gathered on the machine without an enclosure. This drop-in solution can be used to connect up to 16 devices—drastically reducing the time it takes to run wires for each device back to the control cabinet and the potential for wiring errors.

The BL Compact system is currently available with four, eight or 16 ports i…
