ABB (New Berlin, WI) has launched
a new safety PLC offering flexible and
powerful programming facilities that
speed and simplify the development of
safe control solutions for control applications. The safety PLC, AC500-S, features:
■ A dual processor architecture that
complies with SIL3/PLe functional safety levels.
■ Support for Structured Text (ST) programming.
■ Graphical function block diagram (FBD) and ladder diagram (LD) software.
■ A powerful suite of functions for trigonometric calculations, including COS, SIN, TAN,
ASIN, ACOS, and LOG.
■ A dedicated analog current input module covering the 0 to 20 mA (or 4 to 20 mA) range.
Single-Output AC-DC Power Supplies
Acopian (Easton, PA) has announced the expansion of its programmable power supply portfolio to include a family of 450 W 1 U programmable single-output AC-DC power supplies. The
high efficiency, high-density family is engineered to satisfy the requirements of a broad array of
OEM, industrial, and laboratory applications including automated test equipment (ATE), water
purification, electro plating, product development, industrial controls, motor controls, and
cathodic protection. Features include:
■ Rack and benchtop models.
■ 135 different
1 to 135 VDC.
■ Current ratings up
to 40 A.
■ Accommodation for the universal AC input voltage of 95 to 265 VAC.
■ An optional fixed auxiliary output of between 3. 3 and 125 VDC, up to 180 W.
Amphenol Industrial Global Operations (Sidney, NY) has announced a line of high-perfor-
mance, rugged, and reliable underwater electrical connectors for deep submersion applications.
The Submariner series of subsurface wet- and dry-mate connectors can be used in depths up to
6,000 meters (underwater pressure of up to 600 bar). The connector is ideal for use by the mil-
itary and government, diving equipment manufacturers, remotely operated vehicle (ROV), and
autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) manufacturers, as well as deep submergence science
and research projects. Features include:
■ Dry-mate connectors that are fully compat-
ible with similar products in the industry.
■ An optional molded-to-cable feature.
■ Sandblasted, cleaned, primed, and
molded polymer-to-metal bonding
■ Rugged metal shells and recessed pins.
■ Wire gauges from 10 AWG to 20 AWG.
■ A maximum operating voltage of 600 V.
■ An operational temperature range of -5º
