AutomationDirect's Gladiatorcompact fusible switchesare a single-pole, two-pole and triple-pole ac devices available in Class CCand Midget fuse models. Single-phase dc devices are also available. The 35mmDIN rail mountable switches' compact size takes up one-third the space of amolded circuit breaker and two-thirds the space of traditional fusibleswitches, saving space in control panels. The full voltage rating of up to 600Vac (80V dc) allows installation flexibility in many applications where feederand branch circuit protection are required. Equipped with lockout/tagoutcapability and finger safe construction, Gladiator switches promote safeworkplace practices by preventing contact with live components. Open fuseindication provides faster troubleshooting and reduced downtime.
Class CC fuse models are UL98listed and have a 200kA Short-Circuit Current Rating; Midget Class fuse modelsare UL 508 listed and have a 10kA Short-Circuit Current Rating. A 5A auxiliarycontact with one normally-open and one normally-closed contact is alsoavailable.
As manufacturers add new technologies to their products, designing for compliance becomes more difficult. Prepare for the certification testing process. Otherwise, you increase the risk of discovering a safety issue after a product leaves the assembly line. That will cause significant time-to-market delays, be much costlier to fix, and damage your brand in the eyes of customers.
Stratasys will be exhibiting two groundbreaking large-scale additive manufacturing technologies, as well as other new products, next month at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago.
Two new technologies from Stratasys, created in partnership with Boeing, Ford, and Siemens, will bring accurate, repeatable manufacturing of very large thermoplastic end products, and much bigger composite parts, onto the factory floor for industries including automotive and aerospace.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies.
You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived.
So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
