Posted: January 6, 2017

Ilme New Hygienic series connectors

When it comes to food & beverage manufacturing and processing; a safe, reliable and high-quality connection is essential to comply with the rigid regulations in the food industry. Since the connectors can come into contact with food products, the material of connectors is an important factor to avoid possible food contamination.

Mencom's T-Type Hygienic rectangular connectors are designed for installation on the food industry machines and systems. By using a unique molding technology, these enclosures have achieved a structurally solid and robust construction needed in the food industry. The food safe and self-extinguishing thermoplastic material is easily cleanable and resistant to the cleaning and sanitizing agents commonly used in food processing factories. The enclosures are certified by Ecolab Technical Application Service and satisfy the stringent requirements in the industry.

There are two series available in the Hygienic enclosures, T-Type/H and T-Type/C. T-Type/H is designed for production lines applications and features the HNBR rubber sealing gasket that has excellent resistance to both chemicals and animal/vegetable fats. T-Type/C is designed for low-temperature applications, and the sealing gasket is made of silicone rubber that is not only resistant to chemical agents and fats, but also low-temperature resistant as low as -50°C.

The Hygienic enclosure series is IP66 and IP69 rated to withstand rigorous high-pressure, high-temperature washdown procedures. The hood cable entries for smaller sized housing (44.27 and 57.27) are available in M25 and M32, and those of larger sized housing (77.27 and 104.27) are available in M32 and M40.

Introducing Icotek's KEL DP Pluggable Round Cable Entry Plate

Posted: March 24, 2016

Icotek KEL-DP cable entry plate

KEL-DP round entry plates are designed for routing standard cables (without connectors). Due to the plug-in function, mounting is absolutely tool-free. Special fixing ribs ensure a centered fit in the metric standard cut-outs M25, M32 and M50.

The KEL-DP products are a cost saving alternative to traditional cable glands. Simply put a small slit in the thin membrane, push standard cables through and it's immediately sealed with IP65. ST-B Plugs can be used for sealing pierced membranes if cables have been removed.

Up to 35 cables, hoses, fiber optics or cable strands with diameters from 4mm to 22.5mm (0.16in to 0.89 in) can be inserted & sealed up to IP65 / NEMA 12 by using the cable entry plate KEL-DP.

  • Just snap-in on metal sheets with thicknesses from 1.5mm ~ 4 mm (0.06" ~ 0.16") & install cables within a short time.
  • Simply pierce the membrane and push cables through
  • Standard cut-outs M25, M32 and M50 as well as M40 for standard cable glands match exactly the dimensions of the KEL-DP round

PP65 NEMA 12 Icotek KEL-DP cable entry plate

Features:

  • Quick and easy assembly, no tools required
  • Round design for metric standard cut-outs
  • Protection class IP65 / NEMA 12

Introducing F10 Blue light sensor from Sensopart

Posted: June 2, 2015

Sensopart F10 Blue Light sensor

When detecting dark or transparent objects, the subminiature photoelectric switch with blue LED emitter, F10 Bluelight, offers much more reliable detection than standard red light sensors. The blue light sensor has proven to be an economic alternative to conventional red light retro-reflective light barriers, for example, in the:

  • solar industry (wafers)
  • packaging industry
  • in laboratory automation or
  • special-purpose machine construction.

F10 Bluelight can detect even more:

  • reliable detection of shiny object surfaces even at wide angles, e.g. varnished wooden surfaces, coated metal and painted plastic parts
  • detects transparent objects without a reflector, e.g. film, Petri dishes and cannulae
  • detection of very dark objects, e.g. solar wafers, foam material and plastics

Product Highlights: Sensopart F10 Blue Light sensor

  • Sub-miniature sensor with blue transmission LED and precise fixed background suppression
  • Reliable switching behaviour with strongly light-absorbing objects, e.g. solar wafers
  • Reliable operation without reflector - even with critical surfaces
  • Tamper-proof sensor design - no misalignment possible
  • Simple mounting and adjustment through innovative dovetail clamp mounting
  • Several connection variations: M5 plug, pigtail cable with M8 connector or cable
  • Robust, fibre-glass reinforced plastic housing (IP67) with Ecolab certification

Blue Light Sensor in the packaging industry

Photoelectric proximity switches are required in a packaging line for plastic bottles to check that the grippers have actually picked up bottles. As there is only limited space for installation close to the gripper, the application demands extremely small sensors, able to provide reliable, reproducible results despite a difficult detection angle. A subminiature sensor from SensoPart's F10 range, with a blue LED emitter, has proven to be by far the most reliable solution.
