AutomationDirect's acuAMP line of current sensors now
includes ac ground fault sensors and dc current transducers and switches. The
GFS series monitors current-carrying conductors in grounded single and
three-phase delta or wye systems. Available in fixed-core models, the GFS
series features jumper-selectable setpoints of 5, 10 or 30 mA. The sensors can
accommodate up to 14 AWG copper wire and feature mechanical relay outputs with
either manual or auto reset. The sensors are UL and CE approved.
The DCT series of dc current transducers combine a Hall Effect sensor and
signal conditioner for use in dc current applications up to 400A. Designed to
be compatible with most PLCs, data loggers and SCADA systems, the DCT series
features jumper-selectable current input ranges and 4-20 mA or +/- 10V dc
outputs. Available in split-core or fixed-core models, DCT current transducer
prices start at $117.
DCS100 series dc current switches feature jumper-selectable current input
ranges up to 100A and are available in normally-open solid-state and SPDT relay
output models. The switches are equipped with removable terminal blocks which
accept up to 12 AWG solid or stranded wire.
All acuAMP sensors are panel-mountable; convenient DIN rail adaptor
accessories are also available.
Why would the biggest connector company in the world design and build the first fully functional 3D-printed motorcycle? To show TE Connectivity's engineers what the technology can really do in making working load-bearing production parts, and free up their thinking when approaching design problems.
The enhanced ST8 includes new functionality designed to help users accelerate design speed and improve the user’s ability to leverage synchronous technology. The update offers greater flexibility in choice of platform and purchasing options, according to the company.
“How can European standards affect me, especially since I only use machines built in the US?” This is a common question, and one way to answer this is to look at how machine safety is enforced, where the information comes from, and how well you can prove you followed the regulations.
