ELECTRONICS: WAGO Corp.’s new 828 Series Feedthrough Terminal Block offers several industry-exclusive features to simplify the feeding of currents up to 40A (AWG 6) through enclosure walls. As the only feedthrough terminal block utilizing CAGE CLAMP® Spring Pressure Connection technology, all terminations are tool-free and maintenance-free. Simply lift the lever, insert a stripped conductor (16-6 AWG) into the termination port and lower lever.Rated at 300V/40A, the 828 Series features single-piece construction to simplify the necessary panel opening and eliminate alignment issues during panel assembly. Installation is efficient: insert block through a rectangular panel opening and secure it to the panel via standard locking clip. An exclusive integrated lockout feature accommodates a security seal or similar tagout marker, limiting unauthorized access to external terminations. A WAGO-exclusive panel gasket seal provides a splash-resistant seal to the enclosure for additional protection and reliability.
At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
