Phoenix Contact Heavycon Ethernet Module

Phoenix Contact is expanding its Heavycon portfolio to make it easier to combine power, signal and data within one housing enclosure. The new Heavycon modular insert is fully shielded and only takes up one module slot in a Heavycon retaining frame. The module uses crimp connection technology, with the individual leads being snapped into a contact carrier before being placed in a shielded housing. Finally this frame is snapped into a plastic module and then placed into the retaining frame. Product features: 8-position CAT5 Ethernet Shielded housing protects against interference from power and signal modules Easy assembly with side-snapping into …

SMC Pneumatics Dust-Resistant Cylinders

Certain contaminants like ceramic powder, paper particles, or metallic powder can severely shorten a cylinder’s operating life, even when using a heavy-duty rod scraper. SMC Pneumatics’ XC92 dust-resistant option consists of floating lube-retainers on the piston rod, preventing particles of 30 microns or less from entering the cylinder, thereby extending the cylinder’s life. Improves cylinder life by a factor of 4 compared to standard SMC cylinders in dusty environments. Available for a range of standard cylinders including round type (CM2), two compact cylinder models (CQS and CQ2) and a compact guide type (MGP). SMC Pneumatics Dust-Resistant Cylinders SMC Pneumatics Technical …

SMC Pneumatics VF1000/3000/5000 5-Port Solenoid Valves

Following the success of their popular Series VF1000/3000/5000 solenoid valves, SMC Pneumatics has updated this range of 5 port valves by improving their durability, reducing their power consumption and also lowering their operating noise. Designed for automotive and general machinery applications, these improved valves are still fully interchangeable with existing VF manifolds. With the introduction of a V200 pilot valve, power consumption of the standard valve has been reduced to 1.55W from1.8W and when specified with an energy saving circuit, the consumption falls to only 0.55W. Noise levels have been dramatically reduced thanks to the introduction of an in-built wave …

SMC Pneumatics VP300/500/700 3-Port Solenoid Valve

SMC Pneumatics has redesigned their VP300/500/700 3-Port Solenoid Valves with lower power consumption and a longer life expectancy. A low standard power consumption of 1.55W can be reduced to 0.55W with the optional power saving circuit installed, resulting in decreased operating costs. Service life has been increased to 50 million cycles or more, based on SMC life testing. A built-in strainer in the pilot valve prevents unexpected troubles due to foreign matter.
