BRX expansion modules add discrete I/O, analog I/O and communications functions as needed to expand machine and process control applications. BRX expansion modules easily snap onto the side of any BRX Micro PLC Unit (MPU). Two High-Speed (HSIO) discrete I/O modules ($189.00 each) are available with (8) 12-24 VDC sink/source inputs and either (8) 12-24 VDC sink outputs or (8) 12-24 VDC source outputs. These BX-HSIO modules are capable of up to 250kHz high-speed input/output signals. The BX-SERIO serial communications module provides an additional four isolated RS-232/RS-485 serial ports. Supported protocols include Do-more! Protocol, Modbus RTU (Master/Slave), K-Sequence, ASCII (In/Out) and DMX512. Data rates are 1200 to 115,200 bps. The BX-SERIO serial communications module is $159.00.
Snap-on BRX I/O expansion modules add discrete and analog I/O to the BRX PLC system as needed to expand machine and process control applications. Eight new analog input and combination analog I/O modules are now available. Starting at $194.00, new 16-channel current input (0-20 mA / 4-20 mA) and 16-channel voltage input (+/- 10VDC, +/- 5VDC, 0-5 VDC, 0-10 VDC) modules provide higher density analog I/O. Space-saving combination analog I/O modules, priced from $254.00, provide 2 or 4-channel current inputs with 2-channel current output, and 2 or 4-channel voltage inputs with 2-channel voltage output. New temperature I/O modules (from $444.00) combine (4) Thermocouple or (4) RTD inputs with the convenience of (4) 0-20 mA / 4-20 mA current outputs.
Klemsan Series slim interface relays are compact and lightweight relays especially useful where cabinet space is a consideration. Encased in a self-extinguishing plastic housing, these high-quality relays offer a long useful life. These 35mm DIN rail mount KPR series compact 6.2mm relay modules include LED indicators and integrated resistor, capacitor, and Zener diode (RCZ) filters on select models. Models are available with DC and AC supply voltage options up to 230 VAC/VDC with a 6A contact rating. Accessories include a polyamide separator plate and 8 or 16-pole push-in type interface relay jumpers. Slim interface relays start at $6.25 and are ideal for use with PLC automation systems, electric power plants, energy management systems, voltage panels, industrial machines and other power and sequencing control applications.
Capacitive proximity sensors allow sensing of metal and non-metal objects through insulating materials such as wood or plastic and are often used to sense fill levels of liquids or powders. New lower priced 18mm and 30mm capacitive proximity sensors have a simple potentiometer sensitivity adjustment. Operating voltages are 10 to 30 VDC; shielded and unshielded versions and NO or NC units are available. Existing capacitive sensors have a pushbutton teach function. New CK2 series 18mm capacitive sensors are priced at $57.00 with IP65/IP67/IP69K ratings and provide an unshielded sensing distance of up to 15mm. 30mm DC-powered CT2 series capacitive sensors ($73.00) have metal (IP65 rated) or plastic (up to IP69K rated) housings with sensing distances up to 25mm. These new sensors are cULus and CE approved.
New FDA compliant M12 quick-disconnect cables are IP69K rated to withstand high pressure, high temperature wash-down applications. These harsh-duty quick-disconnect cables and patch cables are used to easily connect field devices in industrial installations. The FDA compliant IP69K rating and food grade TPE-S (Styrene-Butadiene Thermoplastic Elastomer) jacket makes them ideal for food and beverage applications. The blue color of the jacket material assists in detection if cables come in contact with food processes. The cables have an industry standard axial or right-angle 12mm connector on one end and open leads on the other. Starting at $12.00, the Q/D cables are available in 8 cable lengths from 2 to 25m. Patch cables have one male and one female M12 plug connector and are available in 3 lengths.
The Marathon line of AC motors now includes open drip proof (ODP) and 4 in 1 series motors. ODP motors are available in single phase, rigid base and C-face footed (rigid base) versions with NEMA Service Factor ratings. 4-in-1 motor configurations include single-phase, totally enclosed motors; and XRI 4N1 general purpose, 3-phase, totally enclosed motors. These 4-in-1 motors are UL recognized and CSA certified. Typical applications include machine tools, conveyors, packaging machines, batching machines, food and beverage equipment, pumps and fans. Additional PowerWash SXT washdown duty single and three-phase motors are available, and more Marathon centrifugal pump (jet pump), fan/blower and air compressor motors have been added. Marathon motor prices start at $114.00 with free shipping on orders over $49.
The Productivity1000 PLC provides communications, user-friendly programming, integrated data storage, and a full lineup of discrete, analog and specialty I/O modules in a super-compact size. The new P1-550 CPU ($203.00) adds a remote I/O port to support 16 GS drives and 4 ProtosX Modbus TCP couplers. The P1-02AC Power Supply ($50.00) provides 26W power for up to 15 P1000 I/O modules (240 hardware I/O points). A DC power supply with 16W output is also new. 8-channel analog I/O modules and a 4-channel, 16-bit resolution analog input module have been added; and a high-speed isolated input module and pulse width modulation module are now available. Starting at $33.50, I/O modules are auto-discovered and easily added / removed. QR (Quick Response) codes are printed on each module for latest specs and wiring.
NS-Series NSF certified water valves (from GC Valves) are an excellent choice for food and beverage grade potable water applications where products can be consumed by humans. Three types of 2-port, 2-position, normally closed valves are available. The NS201 and NS211 series are piloted diaphragm valves with 316L stainless steel or Nylon 6 (thermoplastic) bodies and are ported for 3/8, 1/2, 3/4, 1, 1-1/4, 1-1/2 or 2-inch NPT. Cost-effective NS301 series valves are direct acting and a good choice for potable water applications up to 400 psi. NS301 valves have 303 stainless steel bodies and 1/4 -inch NPT ports. 24VDC, 24VDC, 120VAC and 240VAC replacement coils and valve repair kits are available. Made in the USA, NS Series potable water valves start at $73.00 and are NSF, CE, CSA, UL recognized and NEMA 4/4X protected.
