We Know That You Believe in Motor Protection!

But, are you protecting your motor from regenerative voltages too?
  • Check the specs on the units you are using now
  • Make sure they state "% unbalance"
  • Symcom's products do!
During phase loss, a motor can regenerate more than 92% of the supply voltage in the open phase. This phenomenon occurs because the disconnected winding acts as a generator. This regenerative voltage can fool “voltage averaging” and “phase shift detecting” voltage monitors into believing that a phase loss is not occurring. For proper protection, a voltage monitor MUST sense 6% to 8% unbalance; otherwise, phase loss may not be detected.

As with all SymCom 3-phase voltage monitors, our new 201-XXX-DPDT protects against regenerative voltages by detecting small voltage unbalances. The 201-XXX-DPDT family of products has a fixed 6% voltage unbalance trip point making them better than the NEC standard of 8%.

The 201-xxx-DPDT is used to prevent damage caused by incoming voltage problems, including regenerative voltages. It is a 11-pin octal base plug-in 3-phase voltage monitor that features two isolated Form C relay outputs and is ideal for use with two control circuits with different voltages.
  • 201-100-DPDT for 95-120VAC, 50/60Hz motors
  • 201-200-DPDT for 190-240VAC, 50/60Hz motors
The 201-xxx-SP-DPDT single-phase models are also available.
  • 201-100-SP-DPDT for 95-120VAC, 50/60Hz motors
  • 201-200-SP-DPDT for 190-240VAC, 50/60Hz motors
DPDT products allow one set of relay contacts to control/protect a motor, while the second set of contacts can be used for an alarm circuit operating on a different voltage. Typically the control contacts would switch 115VAC control circuit, while the alarm contacts would switch a 24VDC circuit monitored by a PLC or other low voltage equipment.

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.

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 power…
