EPSITRON® Electronic Circuit Breakers (787 Series)

Space-saving electronic circuit breakers provide reliable protection at a top price/performance ratio.

WAGO's 787 Series EPSITRON® Circuit Breakers offer both outstanding features and reliable protection against overload and short circuits. The individual circuit breakers have a switch-on capacity of 20,000 μF (787-86x) or 50,000 μF (787-166x) and higher, which is provided without having to increase the nominal current setting. Four-channel units with 1 - 6 A, 1 - 8 A and 1 - 10 A current ratings (787-86x), or two-, four- and eight-channel models with 0.5 - 6 A, 1 - 6 A and 2 - 10 A current ratings (787-166x) offer you the flexibility you need for setting the nominal current for your individual applications. The trip current can be set for each channel using a rotary switch, and some devices also feature active current limitation.

Space-saving design and wide range of applications

With a maximum width of 45 mm, WAGO's electronic circuit breakers feature high channel density, providing space-saving installation in the control cabinet. They are suitable for a wide range of applications, including secondary-side fusing for long line lengths or small conductor cross sections. Machine and equipment manufacturers also frequently use electronic circuit breakers to reliably neutralize a ground fault in the control circuit within a defined time period according to EN 60204. Furthermore, they are often chosen over safety fuses for equipment protection on account of their high level of accuracy.

Benefits of electronic circuit breakers:
  •     Pluggable CAGE CLAMP® connection technology
  •     2-/4-/8-channel circuit breakers with adjustable trip current
  •     LED status indication & remote control signals
  •     High switch-on capacity: 20,000 or > 50,000 µF
  •     Comprehensive range of approvals
  •     Active current limitation (option)
  •     Communication: RS-232 or DI/DO

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 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…
