Quick-disconnect cables from AutomationDirect have a 3, 4 or 5-socket M8 female connector on one end and 3, 4 or 5 open leads on the other end designed to provide fast and easy connection between field devices and terminal connections.
Made exclusively for AutomationDirect by Yokogawa, ProSense PPC5 series advanced process controllers handle temperature, pressure, level, flow, and other process variable control applications and offer a variety of control, input, output, alarm and communications options.
The new IronHorse HBR series of helical bevel gearboxes from AutomationDirect combine a helical gearset with a bevel gearset to create an output that is perpendicular to the input. The gearboxes have a hollow shaft output and accept double or single shafts.
SU, UK, UT and TU series round body and UQ series cubic plastic ultrasonic distance sensors from AutomationDirect are now available in sensing distance ranges from 60 to 8000 mm, in metal or plastic housings, and M18 (18 mm) and M30 (30 mm) barrel or head sizes.
Choosing the most effective controller requires careful evaluation of multiple requirements
Intended for the user who doesn’t require a built-in HMI display, needs a larger display, or would rather strictly use the C-more mobile app, the C-more EA9 series remote (headless) HMI unit from AutomationDirect provides all the functionality of an EA9 touch panel without the extra cost of a touchscreen interface.
There are many types of object detection sensors available on the market. Some of them, such as limit switches, require direct contact with the object.
The AutomationDirect line of sensors now includes capacitive proximity sensors with potentiometer adjustment for sensitivity. 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.
AutomationDirect has added motors designed for washdown environments to its stepper systems product line. SureStep IP65-rated high-torque stepping motors are said to be completely protected from solids and dust ingress and from low pressure water jets from any direction, making them suitable for many washdown applications.
A new hybrid PVC/rubber hose introduced by AutomationDirect is suitable for air and water use. Nitra hybrid PVC hose is a blend of PVC and rubber with a polyester braided reinforcement. The PVC gives light weight, color stability and hardness for higher working pressures while the rubber gives improved flexibility and operating temperature range.
