Accessories aiding camera protection After receiving feedback from its

customers, autoVimation has extended the range of acces- sories available for its Salamander series of protective camera enclosures.

The new additions are mod- ular and can therefore be installed and retro-fitted as required. Additionally, Salamander enclosures can now house cameras with a maximum diameter of 40 x 40mm if their corner radius is at least 3mm. A new 60mm spacer enables easier installa- tion and adjustment of large lenses (e.g. 80mm long with a 55mm diameter).

The spacer is simply assem- bled together with the enclosure lid - before the lid is installed, the lens is easily accessible and can be reached from all sides. Salamander enclosures with a spacer maintain IP67 protection. A new positioning ring also allows users to reproduce the installation position of the camera inside the enclosure at

any time. This facilitates the re- installation of cameras in the correct position e.g. after repairs. A pneumatic shutter is available as a series model.

It is designed for environ- ments with extreme contamina- tion where image capture is required during breaks in opera- tion. Made from stainless steel, the protective shutter is resistant to aggressive media. A Poron seal on the inside prevents the contamination of the front window. Creating excess pres- sure with help of a wind curtain just prior to the shutter opening helps further to prevent front window contamination. Finally, the new accessories also include a mirror attachment for orthogonal beam deflection that provides an alternative to cameras with a 90° viewing direction or cost intensive prism attachments in applications with limited installation space. autoVimation T: +49 0721 6276 756 Enter 217

Base/plinth system for floor standing enclosures

The new Flex-Block base/plinth system has been introduced by Rittal for its floor standing enclosures - TS 8, SE 8 and CM along with floor standing human interface products TP and PC.

The Flex-Block plinth is made up of four

fibreglass reinforced corner pieces that fix directly to each corner of the enclosure, either to the frame or the base tray. These blocks support the whole weight of the enclosure providing direct access to the whole of the underside allowing for cable management or pallet trucks for simple transportation. With provisions for threaded inserts, the corner pieces allow for castors or adjustable levelling feet to be installed with the minimum of effort without tools. With all the corner pieces in place it is possible to clip fit or mechanically fix

accessories such as a punched section for the use of standard accessories i.e. cable management, punched section, cable restraints, etc, providing a solid solution for cable access when working at low level. All plinths are supplied with trim panels made from sheet steel and painted in RAL 9005. These can be clip fitted without the use of tools or fixings, and have been test- ed to withstand the rigours of transport and vibrations. For additional security there is also the option to screw fix the trims along with points for earthing the trims. With the TS 8 bayable range of enclo-

sures in mind it is also possible to bay the plinths together using the baying clip sup- plied as an accessory. Rittal T: 01709 704 000
