Switches and Thyristors
Ex HS 98 position switches with analogue output for Ex zones 1 and 21
Switches and Thyristors : 05 January, 2016
The Ex HS 98 position switch, which the Steute business division "Extreme" has demonstrated at the SPS IPC Drives, sets itself apart from all other Ex position switches in the Steute range: instead of using conventional "on/off" technology, it emits an analogue signal which corresponds to the position of the actuator or plunger, detected by an integrated Hall sensor.
Expanded range of solid state relays for the food industry
Switches and Thyristors : 28 December, 2014
Distributor of switching components Switchtec has been appointed as sole distributor for specialist solid state relays (SSRs) manufacturer Kudom Electronics. The agreement covers the whole of the UK and is with immediate effect. The Kudom range greatly expands Switchtec’s current SSR offering, particularly in the food industry, for which they are particularly well suited.
Piezoelectric switches, keypads and access controls have no moving parts
Switches and Thyristors : 08 May, 2014
CamdenBoss has added a series of switches, keypads and access control products featuring piezoelectric technology to its product range. With no moving parts, piezo switches have a long operating life of 50 million operations and are highly resistant to environmental factors (IP68 sealed) as well as being robust and resistant to vandalism.
Smart thyristor raises alarm in the event of critical fault condition
Switches and Thyristors : 22 February, 2014
CD Automation UK has announced a further enhancement of its smart thyristor range. The new REVO HP continuously monitors itself, raising an alarm in the event of critical fault conditions. The new product will find a home in high power applications such as industrial heat treatment, power stations and marine work, and in the oil and gas sectors, particularly off-shore oil platforms.
Metal on glass capacitive touch switches easy to customise
Switches and Thyristors : 14 February, 2014
Launched at Southern Manufacturing 2014, Noritake Itron has introduced custom designed metallised touch switches, whereby customers can create their own unique patterns. They feature a high-gloss metallic finish which is hard wearing and will not degrade due to humidity or temperature extremes.
Ethernet components now with ABB Industrial IT certification
Switches and Thyristors : 27 January, 2014
Switches and security routers from the current Phoenix Contact product range are now certified by ABB as "Industrial IT Enabled.’ Unlimited compatibility with the ABB Industrial 800xA automation architecture was proven through comprehensive tests.
Integrated cylinder lock for circuit breaker
Switches and Thyristors : 18 January, 2014
Eaton is now offering its NZM circuit breakers with a safe key cylinder lock which is integrated directly into the attached rotary drive mechanism. The new safety lock enables the mechanical interlocking of two NZM breakers, whereby only the circuit breaker with the inserted key can be switched on. With the addition of the safe key users can now lock NZM circuit breakers and switch disconnectors in the "OFF’ position quickly and easily, ensuring that switches are protected against accidentally being switched on.
Switch manufacturer makes major investment in UK manufacturing
Switches and Thyristors : 10 November, 2013
Eaton is to invest over £3.8 million at its Worksop UK site where rotary cam switches and switch disconnectors are produced. The investment has significantly increased the capacity of the plant.
Display app offers convenient operation of the control relay
Switches and Thyristors : 11 September, 2013
Eaton is making use of the Easy800 control relay even easier and more convenient, by launching the new EasyRemote display app. Available on the Android operating system (for versions 2.2-4), the app enables users to display all the text and functions of the Easy800 control relay via a standard smartphone and operate it remotely.
Compact safety key switch to isolate power to machinery
Switches and Thyristors : 09 September, 2013
The SR key switch is part of Fortress’ mGard range of safety interlocks. When the key is trapped inside the SR unit the power to machinery is on, and when the key is free, power is off. This allows the person carrying the freed key to enter the machinery or guarded area safely and power is not resumed until the key is returned. This is a typical sequence and other sequences can be specified.
Chokes test appliance switches to international standards
Switches and Thyristors : 12 June, 2013
REO has designed and manufactured chokes for testing switches in domestic applications to the international BS EN 61058-2-1 and BS EN 60669-2-1 standards. BS EN 61058-2-1 applies to switches for appliances with particular requirements for cord switches, while BS EN 60669-2-1 covers switches for household and similar fixed electrical installations with particular requirements of electronic switches.
Bluetooth adapter enables remote communication with control relay
Switches and Thyristors : 04 December, 2012
Eaton Corporation has launched a Bluetooth adapter for its Easy800 control relay, enabling machinery and plant to be commissioned and maintained remotely using Bluetooth communication. As a result, users can communicate with the controller, without needing to enter noisy or dangerous areas, from a distance of up to 10m away (based on normal industrial environments).
Safe monitoring of furnaces now TUV Certified
Switches and Thyristors : 01 November, 2012
The Eaton EasySafety control relay for use in the safe monitoring of furnaces now has TÜV approval.
Single-loop thyristor temperature controller reduces wiring and cabinet size
Switches and Thyristors : 01 November, 2012
The Revo TC combines a temperature controller, solid state relay (SSR) thyristor, quick blow fuse protection and current monitoring - all in a compact single-loop package.
