Weidmuller MCZ SERIES Relays and Solid-State Relays



A special feature of the MCZ SERIES is its low profile shape. With a width of only 6 mm, it is particularly well suited for decentralized usage in sub-distribution boards and terminal boxes. You can reduce the installation time by 50 % compared to conventional methods when you use the tension clamp connection and the ZQV 4N pluggable cross-connection on three voltage potential points.

The MCZ TRAK components, which have been developed for the rail industry to comply with the requirements of EN 50155 and EN 61373, are a special highlight. All components have been specially designed to function reliably in temperatures ranging from -40 to +70 °C (and +85 °C for ten minutes). The MCZ TRAK components feature a painted switching element that protects it from condensation which occurs from temperature fluctuations.

The component input circuitry is designed to tolerate on-board voltage fluctuation of -30 to +25 % and ±40 % for 0.1 s (typical for rail applications) without malfunctioning.The MCZ TRAK components also withstand voltage interruptions of over 10 ms without triggering an outage (in compliance with Class S2). In addition, the vibration requirements according to EN 61373/requirements category 1/class B are fulfilled without malfunction or contact interruption. With all of these properties combined, the MCZ TRAK components are a very sturdy and reliable solution for decentralized applications. And not only in the rail industry – they should be used in other industries where conditions are too extreme for conventional components.

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 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.

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…
