ILME UK Industrial Plugs and Sockets

ILME UK Industrial Plugs and Sockets cover a wide range of different installation requirements. The plugs and socket-outlets are suitable for fixed or mobile installations. The fixed plugs and socket-outlets may be wall or flush mounted.ilme

Due to the wide range of Ilme enclosures of the FM, FC, TM, QM and BK series (types BC…) the flush-mounting plugs and socket outlets can be assembled rapidly in a group configuration. These construction features enable Ilme plugs and socket outlets to be suitable for use in a lot of demanding applications such as:-

  • Mechanical Industry
  • Shipbuilding
  • Chemical and petrochemica
  • Services sector
  • Building industry
  • Agricultural and livestock breeding sector

When selecting the correct type of plugs and socket-outlets, you must consider the following parameters:-

  • The rated current of the equipment to be power supplied via the plug and socket
  • The rated voltage of the power supply and the type of distribution (single or 3 phase, with or without the neutral conductor)  to determine the number of poles for the hour position.  The 1h (hour position) is available for all those voltages or voltage ranges of >50V and for frequencies not covered by the standards.
  • Fixed or mobile installation to determine the construction type of the plug and socket.  (flush mounting straight or inclined, wall, mobile, mobile angled).
  • The location of the installation to determine the level of protection required, IP44 or IP67.  In some areas the installation standard requires a very low voltage so check that too.

The following types of plug and socket outlets are available:-

  • Wall mounting plugs and socket outlets, low and extra low voltage.
  • Plug and socket outlets and straight flush mounting sockets, low and extra low voltage.
  • Plugs and inclined flush mounting socket outlets, low voltage.
  • Straight plugs and couplers, low and extra low voltage.
  • Angled plugs, low voltage.
  • 5 pole plugs with phase inverter, low voltage, SIP type.
  • 5 pole single block plugs and socket outlets, low voltage, PEM type for automated cabling.

 

Thanks for tuning in, contact us if you have any enquiries.

Westermo Release New Industrial Routing Ethernet Switches

Westermo has announced the release of 7 new industrial routing switches signalling a step forward in networking performance at the edge of industrial mission critical networks.westermo

The density of equipment at the network edge has increased as well as needs such as enhanced security and network resilience, hence the need for a new generation of industrial Ethernet switches.

RedFox is a high performance layer 3 industrial Ethernet switch designed for high network traffic applications. Seven new switch configurations are available that can be  customised further with SFP transceivers. Two models, the RFI-207-F4G-T3G and RFI-211-F4G-T7G, offer gigabit connections on all ports. The RFI-219-F4G-T7G offers 19 ports altogether including 7 SFP fibre ports in a robust and compact DIN rail mount industrial housing.

The RedFox is designed for use in heavy duty industrial applications in it’s robust aluminium housing and has been tested both by Westermo and external test houses to meet many EMC, isolation, vi­bration and shock standards, all to the highest levels suitable for heavy industrial environments and rail track side application.

RedFox is powered by the Westermo WeOS network operating system which is now delivered in 70 different models in the Westermo range.  WeOS has been developed by Westermo to allow us to offer cross platform and future proof solutions. WeOS can deliver unique IP security functionality for this class of product, for instance a Multiport DMZ can be constructed by utilising the firewall function available in every port.  Remote secure access to a network can be provided using encrypted VPNs.

As a Layer 3 routing switch the RedFox is capable of delivering enterprise type routing functionality with OSPF, RIP and VRRP as well as process level ring recovery times of around 20ms even at speeds of 1 gbit/sec utilising Westermo’s FRNT protocol.

It has wide power range 19-60VDC on dual power inputs for resilience and requires 30% less power than the previous generation of products, a significant benefit for lifetime running costs. A wide operating temperature range –40 to +70°C (–40 to +158°F) can be achieved with no moving parts or cooling holes in the case.

New – Lutze Electronic Housing

LÜTZE has introduced a new electronic housing – the LCOS, which is an intelligent housing solution that can be individually adapted to the requirements of the control cabinet.LCOS

The LCOS from LÜTZE is an IP20 electronic housing system that can be used for both modular housings or as a stand-alone solution, it can also be expanded into a complete modular I/O system via the toll-free connection of data or energy modules. The LCOS’ electronic housing is based on a device carrier that holds the separate housings or the plug-in function units. The patented four-wire bus allows the field side to be supplied with up to 16A of nominal current per conductor. This facilitates the realisation of three-phase functions with an operating voltage of 500V or also 24V applications with a current load of DC 64A. The LÜTZE electronic housing LCOS has UL-approval and can therefore be used worldwide. The temperature application range lies between -40° C and +85° C. On the basis of the various approvals and fire tests, such as V-0, NFF I2 and NFF F2, the LCOS housing is also suitable for use in rough ambient conditions.

Various models allow individual solutions.

If the LCOS housing system is used in a modular way, plug-in data or power modules with supply options supply power to the system and allow the creation of a data and power bus. The modules are interchangeable so that four results are possible: 2x data; 2x power, 1x power/data, 1x data/power. A further advantage: The connection between the modules does not need to be wired, it is connected via insulated bridges. The LCOS function housing is available in four models: Either as a housing that is 22.5 mm or 35 mm wide, or alternatively with or without side terminals. In combination with the supply the construction width is 57.5 or 70 mm. The LCOS housing is equipped with three standard markers so that a total of 18 characters can be used for labelling purposes. As an additional service, LÜTZE supplies both customised front plates and also individual colours to implement the Corporate Identity of the device manufacturer. Thanks to 64 freely selectable codes, it is impossible to connect the modules incorrectly. They are connected directly to the carrier rail via PE contacts. Regardless of the housing configuration, the LCOS system has 42 connection points. The data bus is equipped for future purposes with 12 data contacts to allow the individual design of the device communication system e.g. the connection of the power modules or bus-capable load monitoring modules.
