MTPM series small DC motors range in size from 1/31 to 1/4 HP and have rolled steel totally enclosed non-vented (TENV) housings, high energy ceramic magnets and replaceable brushes. The motors are rated for SCR drives and accommodate 12, 24, 90, and 180 VDC. Fractional HP DC motors start at $71.00 . IronHorse MTG series 1/19 to 1/5 HP DC gearmotors are available with parallel or right-angle gear shafts in 12, 24, and 90 VDC versions. These gearmotors are designed for use on unfiltered SCR (Thyristor) type rectified AC inputs and can be used with PWM (pulse width modulated) type DC adjustable speed drives and in across-the-line applications Features include TENV enclosures, Class F insulation and replaceable brushes. IronHorse DC gearmotors start at $146.00.
CWC series miniature contactors from WEG are a complete solution for controlling motors and switching other loads. The compact 45mm dimensions for its up to 22A IEC current rating allows it to take up less space inside electrical enclosures (making panel design and assembly easier) while still offering up to a powerful 15HP @ 460V. DC models feature low consumption coils allowing operation directly from a PLC without interface relays. Available in three-pole and four-pole models, contactors are DIN-rail mountable and feature self-lifting pressure plates and coil voltage indication. WEG CWC series miniature contactor prices start at $11.00 . Matching direct mount overload relays start at $14.00 . Accessories include auxiliary contact blocks, surge suppressors, Star-Delta electronic timing relays, wiring kits, and mechanical interlock and latch blocks.
One Toolbox for Every Task
As the network continues to grow, network operators are facing a tough challenge to keep the system up and running. First, you need to learn to use several different network management tools to be able to fulfill different tasks, such as configuration and monitoring. Second, the software are not designed for industrial automation, so you have to struggle through the complicated user interfaces to get the data you want.
