  • Avoid a Control Panel Redesign
    When motion network communications contain errors or create alarms, consider four quick-fix alternatives before redesigning a control panel. These include looking at the problem and solutions, checking wiring and settings, trying latency quick fixes, and trying noise-related quick fixes.
  • Open Network Eliminates Tray-Loader Wiring Problems
    that snaked back to the junction block and the control panel. This strategy was expensive and space consuming. Connections to the articulating robot were difficult as well. Robot makers provide only a limited number of conductors to control end-of-arm (EOA) tooling, problematic because Distech offers
  • Sweet words: You're fired
    the door in short order. It was during that summer I learned that firing people can be a good thing. We worked with industrial control panels that carried potentially lethal voltages and currents. There was an informal watch-out-foryourbuddy system as a matter of safety. When you were wiring a panel
  • Effective distributed motion-control systems
    resolution, and converts a device's digital data into the appropriate communication channel signals. The top layer defines the applications. The trend toward more distributed controls is a departure from the past practice in machine design of eliminating large main control panels and replacing them
  • Lower Control Voltages Reduce Shock Hazard
    Motor controllers running on 24 Vdc, such as the Cutler-Hammer Intelligent Technologies (IT) Soft Starter, weigh only 9 lb and can fit inside an 18-in. motor-control center. The bypass contactor and the overload relay are integrated into the controller, saving panel space and wiring costs
  • Connecting Sensors Over Ethernet
    Direct wiring methods are commonly used for simple on-off device control, where a circuit is either open or closed. A typical example would be the wiring used for a light switch. Likewise, digital sensors are usually wired directly to monitoring panels in the world of industrial automation
  • UL 508 A Short Circuit Current Ratings (.pdf)
    - Industrial Control Panels - was released to provide inspectors a single source for requirements and to assist with verification of compliance to Article 110.10 - Circuit Impedance and Other Characteristics. Widely recognized as the National Electrical Code (R), or NEC (R), the NFPA 70 standard identifies
  • Brushless washer maker finds reliability in screwless connections
    make reliable connections for an innovative vehicle-washing system, despite temperature fluctuations and corrosive surroundings that typify commercial car washes. in De Pere, Wis. ( ), employs M block-style terminals from ), in the control panels that run its LaserWash and SpectraWash systems
