Motors – We Make Them Easy to Connect

Murrelektronik's new power connectors (M12, M15 and M23) make motors easy to connect. The M12 power connector is the most compact and powerful 5 pole M12 connector on the market. The new M15 power standard connection technology of the MQ15-X-Power connector enables extremely quick assembly. Murrelektronik's M23 connectors are an established standard solution to connect servo motors.

Perfect contacts, seal and media resistance are basic requirements to all connector types. The field of motor connections requires additional, special features. Wide connection cross sections, high performance in a very compact design and most important: an integrated anti-vibration locking mechanism that makes sure the connector is tight even with very strong vibrations. Murrelektronik offers power cables for different applications and motor types that meet these requirements.

Its very compact design makes the M12 Power connector ideal for linear drives, brushless DC or step motors.  It has a capacity of up to 2 x 16 A at max. 63 V AC/DC. The Murrelektronik product range is comprised of cord sets with open ended wires, connection cables, flange connectors and adapters - which offers a vast number of installation options.

The MQ15 X is designed for quick connections with reverse polarity protection of asynchronous motors up to 7.5 kW. The connector offers three power contacts up to 16A, PE and two auxiliary contacts up to 10A. The quick connection technology ensures sealed connections in no time. The molded plugs make sure the connector is sealed, tamper-proof and prevents wiring errors. The program range is complemented by flange connectors with an M20 outer thread. These connectors are simply attached to terminal boxes with a screw connection.

With the M23-Drives range, Murrelektronik offers the most powerful 8 pole M23 connector on the market (with a reference ambient temperature of 40° C). With 28 A/ 630V per pin for the power contacts and 8 A/300V for the signal contacts, the connectors are suitable even for high performance drives and servo motors of the AC/DC range.  A complete 360° shielding ensures very low interference emission. The M23 also features a high-quality locking mechanism that ensures permanently sealed connections with the hex thread and the suitable torque wrench. The coding arrow on the housing is a practical installation aid. A corrugated tube connection, high-quality, original Siemens cables and excellent seal even when exposed to oil in industrial applications are additional strong points of Murrelektronik's M23-Drives cordsets.

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…
