Network integration made easy using HMS Anybus products

CDL has used HMS Anybus products as their chosen recommended choice for integration between any fieldbus and industrial Ethernet network.

 

 

 

With fast transfer of data between two Networks, the X-gateways help system integrators by ensuring a consistent flow of information throughout the entire plant

 

HMS Anybus

 

Connecting the PLC Worlds

Anybus X-Gateways are proven and trusted for full compatibility with all of the major PLC Manufacturers and their supported Networks, such as Mitsubishi, Siemens, Rockwell, Schneider, Omron, GE, Moeller, B&R, Bosch, Beckhoff and many more.

Network Migration

As Anybus supports all major Fieldbus and Industrial Ethernet standards, the X-gateways are the perfect solution when migrating existing Fieldbus installations into modern Industrial Ethernet networks.

Network segmentation/extension

Coupling/de-coupling different parts of a machine or extending the physical distance capability when coupling two similar networks are just some system integration needs that X-gateways are solving today.

Streamline your network infrastructure, reduce cost of ownership

Anybus X-gateways help to save on infrastructure costs by reducing cabling and eliminating the need for I/O devices. Master/Scanner versions eliminate the need for a second PLC and its configuration Software.

Speed and Connectivity: Cabling Solutions

CDL works alongside Phoenix Contact, to offer quality products.  For the best cabling solutions, you need to use the correct tool.

Hand Tools A wide range for a large number of jobs such as stripping, cutting and crimping.

Hand Tools

 

Automatic Tools If you are looking to assemble conductors, there are automatic devices to do this job.  There are time saving tools for cutting, stripping and crimping that are tailored to meet the requirement of control cabinet construction.

Automatic Tools

 

Cable Cutters There are different designs of cable cutters to suit every application.

Cable Cutters

 

Stripping Tools The WIREFOX stripping pliers are able to automatically adjust for different insulation and conductor diameters.  The integrated  wire cutter and flexible adjustable limit stop for the stripping length makes them practical to use.

The WIREFOX-D-SHIELD stripping pliers are more suitable for stripping shielded cables and also allow for easy creation of cable cut-outs and wire pick-offs.

Stripping Tools

 

Crimp, press and crimping pliers There is a range of CRIMPFOX pliers so you can process ferrules and cable lugs without insulating collars, slip on sleeves and contacts up to 120mm.  They call come with a integrated pressure lock.

Crimp, Press & Crimping Pliers

 

Screwdrivers Various screwdrivers can be offered for any screw size whether it is standard or powered.

Lutze valve connector suppressors with power saving features

Lutze Valve Connector SuppressorWorking closely with Lutze, who develop and build electronic and electro-mechanical components for the Automation Industry, we would like to tell you about their new product.

The new Lutze Suppressors for valves are ready-made, pre-assembled components that meet the demands for many users in the industrial market.  The pre-assembled PUR cable meets to IP67 and due to its moulded design, can be used in harsh environments outside of the control cabinet.  A big advantage of this is a maximum of 50% reduction in energy consumption and Lutze say the purchase price will be fully recovered within a year due to this.  The suppressor is commonly used for the power supply of hydraulic valves. It can also be used in a working temperature range between -25 °C and +80 °C.

This new suppressor is configured with a protection device and LED status indication and can be used with a current range of up to 2 amps.  It has a contact distance of 18mm to meet with design A requirements.  The cable is UL and CSA certified and the actual suppressor meets standards EN 175301-803 (DIN 43 650), ISO 4400
