PIANO power supplies – where value meets quality • 20 - 40% lower in price • Up to 95.2% efficiency • Fully approved

High reliability & attractive price The PIANO series of DIN-rail power supplies from Puls offers high reliability and long service life time but now with a significant price advantage. Despite the low cost requirements, an MTBF of more than 1.4 million hours and efficiencies of 90.5 to 95.2% have been achieved. This was made possible by a clever single circuit board design, cost-saving polycarbonate housing and an engineering team focused on an intelligent design for manufacturability. Technical features PIANO series units include a DC-OK signal, operational temperature range up to +55°C (without derating) and large screw connection terminals. All housed in a light and compact housing with the 24V/10A unit being only 49mm wide. For applications that do not require a mains voltage of 100-120V further cost reduction can be made by choosing one of the units specifically developed for 200-240V.

Mount it anywhere! The Easy Mount from Rechner Sensors has been produced to make the handling, mounting and application easy for the user. The sensor itself features excellent technical characteristics and is very small in size. • • • •

For use in level control of liquids Level control of bulk material Leakage detection Position control of objects and much more...

It can be mounted in various ways; it can be glued in the desired position, fixed with a cable tie or it can be mounted with one of the holders from the range accessories. The sensitivity or sensing distance adjustment is almost made by itself thanks to the EasyTeach function. The teaching steps one has to pass through are easy and quick to complete so the user does not lose time when setting each individual sensor. With the use of the newest production technologies the components of the sensors are embedded in the plastic body. They are watertight and operate wear-free with an IP rating of IP68.

Hot or cold ? No change there! Stego’s range of tamper proof thermostats takes away the worry of the incorrectly set climate control in your enclosures. The FT thermostats are pre-set so they cannot be adjusted by the user and are available as normally open, normally closed or as a pair for heating and cooling applications. By removing the mechanical adjustment the switching tolerance has also been improved and the compact size make them easy to mount in the smallest of spaces. • • • •

SYR-Line timers, greater power… smaller size Crouzet has always been at the forefront of timer technology beginning with Syrelec in the 1980’s and followed by the Chronos and Chronos 2 ranges. They have now introduced the SYR-line range to the market. This range contains a higher, 16A rated, single output, multifunction timer, perfect for use in applications with higher inrush currents and greater loads. They have also introduced a dual, 8A timer but in the same, slim, 17.5mm housing meaning two separate devices can be controlled by a single unit thereby saving space and cost compared to two individual timers. As with all Crouzet timers the units are simple to wire and set up and have LED status indication for normal running and any fault conditions. Offering a timing solution for any application the SYR-line range further increases and develops the timer portfolio available from Crouzet and OEM Automatic.

KDSClick the all rounder Conta-Clip has now added ‘split glands’ to the KDS range of cable entry systems. These versions are ideal for applications where pre-assembled cables need to be connected in to smaller enclosures and can be easily retro-fitted to existing systems that already use standard skin top glands.

Outstanding seal: IP66 protection Multi-resistant, tapered seals feature inner and outer sealing gills.

Intelligently split seal Their wave-cut profile makes them easy to install and ensures a perfect fit around the cables.

The glands are available in 6 sizes from M20 to M63 and share the same inlays and inserts as the frame version making the KDS range one of the most flexible solutions on the market. • IP66 • Simple modular design

• 80 different sealing inserts • Halogen & silicon free

Separable locknut Easy to attach to cables that have already been guided through.

Versatile assembly Up to four assembled cables can be used with one cable gland. Maximum versatility More than 80 different seal variants are available.
