PBUS-26-Klein-ClampMeterTestKit-400.jpg

Klein Tools, for professionals since 1857, introduces a new line of electrical test kits, which offer their best-selling meters and testers in convenient, value-priced kits. 

 

 

 

Brand: Rafi
Industry Focus: Building Controls, Food & Beverage, General Manufacturing, Industrial, Power Distribution & Energy, Transportation
Product Type: Switches/Indicators/Relays/Solenoids

RAFI has expanded its RAMO S selector switch series to include integrated M12 plug and play connectors that simplify assembly. The M12 terminals ensure that the necessary wiring effort is reduced to a minimum and that no extra enclosures with special sealing are required.

PBUS-26-Automation-TwoHandCOntrolPanel-400.jpg

AutomationDirect has added Schmersal two-hand control panels to its lineup of safety products. Two-hand control systems are used with a special control monitoring relay and require an operator to use both hands simultaneously when initiating a hazardous operation. This forces an operator to keep their hands on the two-hand control actuator and out of an unsafe spot when a system is performing a hazardous operation.

Brand: HARTING
Industry Focus: Data, General Manufacturing, Power Distribution & Energy
Product Type: Connctors/Cables/Terminal Blocks

PBUS-26-HARTING-HanL32B-400.jpg

Using an L32 B connector allows users to replace two size 16 B interfaces -- saving over 40% of installation space. This makes it possible to transmit power, signals and data with fewer interfaces and fewer components. It also cuts the time required to assemble interfaces. The resulting lower weight also benefits a number of other applications, e.g. in robotics. The solution not only saves space, it also makes a contribution to lower consumption - and thus stands for sustainable product design.

Industry Focus: General Manufacturing, Industrial
Product Type: Drives/Loop Controllers/PAC's/PLC's

PB-44-Beckhoff-EJ1254-400.jpg

The EJ1254 digital input module acquires the fast binary 24 V control signals from the process level and transmits them, in an electrically isolated form, to the controller. The EtherCAT plug-in module has four channels that indicate their signal state via light emitting diodes. The signals are furnished with a time stamp that identifies the time of the last edge change with a resolution of 1 ns.

PB-44-BR-AutomationRuntime-400.jpg

B&R's real-time operating system, Automation Runtime, now automatically logs data about storage media's health to provide machine operators and service personnel early warnings of impending failure. Storage media can be replaced before a crash causes lost data and costly downtime. B&R is among the first to bring this commercial-grade feature to industrial embedded runtime systems.

PBUS-26-Siemens-SmartConditionMonitoring-400.jpg

Siemens is presenting Sitrans SCM IQ, a new Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solution for Smart Condition Monitoring, at the Hannover Messe 2021. It enables potential incidents to be detected and prevented at an early stage, thus reducing maintenance costs and downtimes, and increasing plant performance by up to ten percent. The wireless, robust Sitrans MS200 multisensors form the hardware basis for installation on machinery.

PBUS-26-Omron-K7GEFourPros-400.jpg

Many manufacturers use time-consuming and potentially dangerous manual processes to inspect servo motors for insulation issues. If this sounds like your company, it might be time to switch over to an automated, remote-based servo motor condition monitoring solution that works around the clock. Omron's new K7GE remote servo condition monitor is part of their predictive maintenance solution offering that’s designed to help manufacturers minimize downtime without sacrificing productivity.

PBUS-25-Rittal-DataCentreCooling-400.jpg

Data Centre and Plant Managers working in small and mid-sized businesses often find themselves searching their buildings for unused space to house the company’s IT and other enclosures.

Mailrooms, empty offices, janitors’ closets…all have been repurposed into data closets holding one to a few racks. This approach may be the right choice in terms of square footage needed, but when it comes to proper climate conditions for sensitive IT equipment, it could not be more wrong. At best, these spaces are cooled using only the building’s AC system. At worst? An open window.

A building’s existing air conditioning system (or combined heat and air conditioning system) is designed to create comfortable environments for employees – the reason they are sometimes referred to as “comfort systems.” When IT racks need to be placed somewhere on site, it’s thought that “any old room” will do because AC ductwork usually terminates in these spaces. However, the reality is that even if you were to add ducts to supplement the building’s AC, relying on a system designed for humans is not a good solution for IT equipment.

Server rooms need more targeted cooling to keep the temperature within a specific range and prevent the servers from overheating. According to ASHRAE (the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers), the appropriate temperature range for server rooms is between 64.4 and 80.6 Fahrenheit. This requires a discrete cooling solution capable of monitoring and managing the temperature of both the equipment and the room. The same cooling system must also be capable of regulating humidity within the precise margins required by sensitive equipment. Finally, building HVAC will not provide sufficient airflow volume for heat removal from installed appliances; the CFM requirements for comfort cooling are significantly lower than airflow required to remove heat from the IT devices.
