Eaton Launches Industry’s Most Compact UL Listed Fused Disconnect Switch to Support High Power Density Data Centers, Simplify Code Compliance

Power management company Eaton today announced a game-changing fused disconnect switch designed to help data centers achieve critical reliability and support advanced power distribution architecture. The new Bussmann® series Low Profile Compact Circuit Protector (CCPLP) is the industry’s most compact Underwriters Laboratories (UL®) 98 Listed fused disconnect switch.

“Eaton’s fusible circuit protection solutions are engineered to support higher energy efficiency and greater power density data center designs, while helping meet code compliance with respect to interrupting rating and safe work practices,” said Nick Stone, Eaton’s Bussmann Division. “The new CCPLP provides expansive features in the industry’s smallest fusible switch footprint to benefit designers, maintainers and owners of modern mission-critical environments by enhancing efficiency, reliability and safety.”

Designed to streamline panel installation and simplify selective coordination requirements in mission-critical environments, the new Bussmann series CCPLP accepts branch circuit rated fuses that are current limiting and up to a 200 kiloampere (kA) interrupting rating. All configurations are designed for use in global applications and offer alternating current voltage ratings up to 600 volts.

To support application flexibility, mounting and panel layout dimensions match common low-profile circuit breakers, providing an easy, alternative fused circuit protection solution. Additionally, all versions are disconnect rated to provide means for load isolation while Class CC, 20 ampere (A) Class G, and IEC 10x38 versions are suitable for both branch circuit disconnect and branch circuit protection.

To enhance safety, the fused disconnect switches are IP20 rated and meet International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) finger-safe requirements for panel mount installations. Further, a built-in switch handle interlocks the fuse access to help prevent removing the fuse under load, and the use of a pin-out device provides a lockout/tagout means for enhanced safety.

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…
