E-T-A Introduces the 12 V DC ESX10-T Remotely Resettable Electronic Circuit Breaker For Integration into RTU/SCADA Applications

E-T-A is pleased to announce the latest addition to its line of electronic circuit protection products.  The ESX10-TC is a 12 V DC version of the ESX10-T, 24 V DC product offering and is designed for SCADA/RTU applications – providing optimal protection for both 12 V DC switch-mode power supplies and solar/battery based systems.The most unique feature of ESX10-TC is the ability to remotely reset the device from outside an enclosure. This can be accomplished via a simple momentary push button or from an output of an RTU or PLC controller.  In RTU/SCADA applications, equipment is primarily located in remote unpopulated locations.  The remote reset functionality reduces the need for field engineers to travel to sites to troubleshoot equipment – reducing the overall cost of equipment maintenance and downtime.

Specifications:

The ESX10-TC is available in fixed current ratings from 1 A to 10 A and provides selective load protection - ensuring exclusive disconnection of the current path in the event of an overload or short circuit in the field load device without compromising the DC 12 V power source (i.e. battery drain). 

The ESX10-TC limits the short circuit current to 1.3 to 1.8 times rated current and disconnects 100 ms after the fault has been detected. Inrush peaks are tolerated from capacitive loads of more than 20,000 μF and is designed with an auxiliary output to provide individual alarm capabilities for critical process flow applications.  This space-saving device has a width of only 12.5 mm and 80 mm in height and depth. Its low power consumption makes it ideally suited for battery-buffered DC 12 V applications, specifically in the solar industry.

The ESX10-TC is Din rail ready and can be mounted either individually or in a group side-by-side with a simplistic bus bar system for +12 V DC and ground.   Also utilizes the same screw terminals as its 24 V DC counterpart which allows up to a 10 mm² conductor to be wired directly to the device, this ensures reliable and safe wiring connections.

Approvals:

The ESX10-TC and E-T-A’s entire ESX10 product family carries the ATEX, UL1604 and UL508 approval for use in Class I, Div. 2, Hazardous Location and General Automation applications, respectively.

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 E

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs. The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs. Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these p

TURCK M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

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.
