CST / Crouzet Limit Switch Changes and Obsolescence

Effective immediately, Custom Sensors and Technologies is making the following changes to their limit switch series: All manual reset limit switches have been made obsolete (part numbers beginning with 83854, 83855, 83856 and 83857). Case color of the 83851, 83852, 83861 and 83862 series of limit switches will change from red to grey. Many of the limit switches in the 83852, 83853 and 83862 series will be phased out, replacing the 1/2″ NPT conduit fitting with the metric (PG13.5mm) fitting.

Phoenix Contact UM-PRO Profile Housings for Mounting PCBs

Phoenix Contact’s UM-PRO profile housings, or PCB trays, enable short assembly times with greater design flexibility for engineers looking to protect their PCB designs. The new design represents advancements over two existing products, the standard UM profile and the UM Modular product. The UM-PRO combines the advantages of a halogen-free, polyamide construction for higher operating temperatures with a complete single profile cut to specific customer-required lengths. This limits the number of components needed to achieve a complete solution. Features and Benefits: Snap-in assembly eliminates additional hardware and reduces assembly time Ambient temperature rating up to 100 C, well in excess …
