IBASE Releases Mini-ITX Motherboard Powered by 9th/8th Gen Intel Processors

I Stäubli's market-leading

connector system to feature at Solar & Storage Live

September will be its MC4 solar power connector system. Enabling the bankability required for today's PV projects, these original, market-leading connectors have been installed in over 200 GW of PV systems worldwide.

H Part of the MC4 connector range on show will be the MC4-

EVO 2, which minimises power losses thanks to its exceptionally high current carrying capacity of up to 69 A. A high voltage rating of up to 1500 V dc means that longer series strings can be used in PV arrays on large-scale solar projects.

Suitable for cable cross-sections between 4 mm2 and 10 mm2 (12 to 8 AWG), the connector has a polyamide casing with improved impact resistance and enhanced sealing. Ammonia and salt spray resistance also enables operation in harsh environments.

Stäubli can be found on Stand E11.

Proximity switch for Ex zones 0/20 with direct 24V connection L

aunching the IGEX20a inductive proximity switch, EGE presents a compact sensor with ignition protection type Ex m (encapsulation). Observing the relevant installation standards and conditions, it can be used directly in zones 0/20 without any further switching amplifier. IGEX20a is certified according to ATEX and IECEx. IECEx certification simplifies worldwide use of the sensors in member countries of the IECEx regime. Certified for use in Ex zones 0 and 20, the proximity switches can be employed in hazardous areas with gas or dust atmospheres, for example in gas stations and in facilities with gas pipelines etc. The switching function is indicated by an LED on the back of the device. The sensors are available in M12, M18, and M30 designs. Flush installation provided, the nominal switching distances are 2 mm, 5 mm, and 10 mm, depending on the design. The proximity switches are connected via a 2 m PUR cable. EGE

supplies the sensors with different cable lengths on request.

Eisele MULTILINE E for power all the way to the application Modular kit system for multiple connectors now has a new electrical connector


he MULTILINE E from Eisele has earned a reputation over

the years as a robust and practical multiple and multi- media connector for connecting functional groups to robots and machines. Now, the German- based specialist for high-quality industrial connection solutions presents an additional M12 power plug for providing electrical power with the MULTILINE E.

Eisele introduces an additional M12 power plug for the MULTILINE E modular kit system. The high-performance M12 connector, which features 5 pins and L-coding, is designed for applications requiring high power density in a compact space. The modular system for combining compressed air,

vacuum, gases, coolants, liquids, electrical and electronic signals in one connector body therefore now includes a new insert for voltages up to 63 V AC/DC. Designed for up to 16 A per pin the connector is shock-resistant and vibration-proof, as well as reverse polarity protected and non-twisting.

High power density in a compact space

The AC/DC power plug is used for the reliable supply of power to high-power devices, such as linear drives and step motors, or as a power line for field bus modules. FKM seals and PUR extrusion enable use of the connector in all industrial applications up to protection class IP67. A nickel-plated cast zinc threaded connection prevents the connector from accidentally opening.

enables easy data exchange with other controllers. The modules operate in slave mode and can, for example, provide a PLC with added GSM functionality via an easy plug connection to the RS485 port directly on the C-type mounting rail. The GSM-PRO-CON extension module from CONTA-CLIP makes wiring even simpler. Plugged into the GSM-PRO2 module, it offers front-access terminals for connection to the controller. The GSM-PRO2 parameterization software can be programmed to send a text or email fault message to specified recipients when the status of the PLC input changes. Prompted by a text message that is sent to the GSM-PRO2 module, data is written into the PLC's digital and analog registers via the Modbus RTU interface. The PLC, acting as a master, reads out the data in order to trigger the corresponding actions.
