Calorimetric creation Introducing the latest generation of Calorimetric sensing/switching; LABO. Adam Porter Product Manager, Motors

‘More than just selling’ As the pace of manufacturing increases, it becomes ever more important to go beyond selling standard components. At OEM Automatic we take pride in listening to the needs of our customers and presenting options to assist with their purchasing and manufacturing requirements. Be it as simple as creating a kit of parts or placing items in customer specific packaging – up to bespoke designs and fully tailored individual products, OEM goes the extra mile to assist with our customers’ needs. An example of this can be seen on page 7. Ball screws can be a commodity part or a complete bespoke precision item where the quality is essential to a machine build. We cater for the extremes of both options, and everything in between. If this is of interest to you, please contact me directly on the below details or call our motors business area on 0116 284 9900. Adam.porter@uk.oem.se

A small robust product engineered within a 12mm housing the LABO is available as a flow switch/sensor, temperature switch/ sensor or level switch. It can also be used to monitor or switch the flow of non-aggressive gases. • Switch (push/pull, programmable) • 4...20mA • 0...10V • Frequency output

Turning cables inside out Conta-Clip is introducing , a new cable entry system that minimises the time required for connecting preformed cables in to cabinets and enclosures. The unique system comprises of only three basic components, frames, inlays and sealing sleeves. Unlike conventional systems that have a split frame that needs to be assembled with the cables before mounting, Conta-Clip’s new solution is based on a robust, but lightweight single unit frame that can be pre mounted.

Thanks to the conical tapering, the sealing sleeves are easily and effortlessly pushed in to the inlays from the inside providing a reliable IP65 seal and strain relief for the cables.

At the same time, the sealing elements can be easily removed again, when new or additional wiring is necessary. This is all achieved without the need to disassemble the whole frame.

A wide choice of inlays can them be inserted and ‘clicked’ in to place from the inside of the cabinet and the populated with up to 42 different inserts to suit your cable requirements.

• IP65 • Simple modular design • Multiple frame variants • 42 different sealing sleeves • Fits in to industry standard cut outs Please see our website to view the video www.oem.co.uk/panel For more information please contact Paul Adkins on 0116 2849900 or e-mail paul.adkins@uk.oem.se
