.

The RSF150 series of vertical float switches are manufactured from a choice of 4 different materials to ensure compatibility with the widest range of liquids.  Nitrile gaskets are supplied as standard, but can be specified from alternative materials to suit the application.    And they are now available with the popular 4-pin M12 round connector – to provide a convenient and foolproof electrical connection.

As with many other Cynergy3 float switches, the float can be readily inverted in order to offer either normally open or normally closed operation, and the switch itself can be specified to have either 25VA or 100VA capacity.

All float switches in the series have either WRAS or UL (or both) approvals.

Cynergy3 can also supply the mating plus and cables and these are available in various lengths and with either straight or elbowed plugs.

Schurter Product FMBC LL: Low Leakage Current 3-Phase Filter

Schurter Logo1.jpg

Schurter expands its successful range of FMBC NEO 3-phase filters with a low leakage current series for applications where no high leakage currents are allowed. The new FMBC LL series of filters is designed for rated currents between 7 and 180 A. It is ideal for leakage current-critical industrial applications such as drive technology.

FMBC LLToday’s electrical industrial installations are increasingly being fitted with residual current devices (RCD) to ensure efficient personal protection. This is also a requirement in certain countries for 3-phase systems, for example plug-in systems up to 32 A. The RCD limits the current to earth to a maximum of 30 mA. This poses a particular problem in drive technology since the frequency inverters that control the engine generate considerable leakage current.
Long motor cables further aggravate the problem since they increase the capacity to earth and hence the currents to earth too. The new series of FMBC LL filters helps reduce the leakage currents and permits compliance with common EMC standards as an efficient input filter.

The compact FMBC LL 3-phase filters have been designed for currents from 7 A to 180 A at an ambient temperature of 50 °C. They have UL approvals for ambient temperatures of +50 °C as well as +40 °C at a higher rated current. The FMBC LL is approved for rated voltages of 520 VAC. This means that they can be used in high-power systems, such as machines used in an industrial environment. Despite their high output performance, they are still compact and
lightweight in design.

The standard FMBC LL is fitted with a screw connection. Other types of connections including wires or copper bars are possible on request as well as customised modifications to the circuit or housing. SCHURTER also offers its own EMC measuring service for an optimum adjustment to the inverter. Therefore the most efficient filter solution for the system can be developed.

Technical Features:
- Rated voltage: 520 VAC
- Rated current: 7 A to 180 A
- Leakage current 7 – 55 A: < 5 mA, leakage current 75 – 180 A: < 20 mA
- Screw connections
- cURus approval: E72928

Finder Introduces Its New 83.52 Multi-Function and Multi-Voltage Timer

Finder.jpg

Finder new 83.52 Multi-Function and Multi-Voltage Timer incorporates eight of the more specialised timing functions.

8352 Series

Utilising microprocessor electronics, the 83.52 is suitable for applications where it is necessary or desirable to have the timing period remotely adjustable – through the remote potentiometer facility. For example, for control of public showers, using the SHp, so called ‘shower’ function, or for other coin-triggered applications in general.

The timer may also be used, for example, where pool table lighting is controlled by a 83.52 mounted within the customer accessible coin acceptance box, but the time itself is controlled from behind the bar.

The output contacts are configurable as two timed, or one timed and one instantaneous, eliminating the need for an additional relay in self-hold applications.

Finder’s new 83.52 provides panel builders, systems integrators, OEMs and individual electricians with a more flexible and economical off-the-shelf solution to virtually any timing application.

Schurter’s MSM LA CS Robust Metal Pushbutton Switch with Ceramic Actuator Surface

Schurter Logo1.jpg

The new MSM LA CS ON/OFF stainless steel pushbutton switch from SCHURTER is equipped with an actuator made of durable ceramic. The same ceramic is already being used to manufacture the previ-ously introduced MSM CS momentary action switches. The material resists scratches and abrasive chemicals as well as impact; it can also be labeled with highly durable legends.

MSM LA CSThe non-illuminated versions of the MSM LA CS and MSM CS switches are offered with a white actuator surface. Standard or customer-specific black legends are applied directly into the ceramic material. Due to the base material and the labeling process, the inscription is scratch-proof and stands up to common cleaning agents. The illuminated design provides a uniform glow across the entire surface in the desired illumination color (red, green, blue, white, orange).

The MSM LA CS pushbutton switch is available with mounting diameters of 19 and 22 mm. It is suited for use in a temperature range of -20 °C to +85 °C. Equipped with blade terminals, the MSM LA CS can be wired up very quickly: the pre-assembled cable set is plugged into the quick-connect terminals of the microswitch, which is then snapped into the switch housing.

The sturdy stainless steel housing and the actuator made of scratch-proof ceramic make the MSM LA CS latching action and MSM CS momentary action switches especially well suited for use in equipment operating in harsh environments, or applications that require protection against vandalism. These in-clude, for instance, vending machines, ticket machines, equipment in restaurant operations, public facili-ties, sanitary facilities as well as applications in hypoallergenic environments such as the medical sector.
