Complete Control Systems from Murrelektronik
Murrelektronik is well regarded for producing complete systems for the control, measuring and monitoring of machines, installations and production lines. In this blog, PIF explores their wide range of solutions for the ultimate in complete control systems.
Murrelektronik implements ideas for electronic control cabinets and control systems with high technical complexity on behalf of customers like chemical distribution company, Brenntag. They provide made-to-measure solutions for a variety of tasks and applications thanks to a comprehensive range of control cabinet products in the fields of power supply, interference suppression and processing.
Buffer Modules, such as the Emparro Cap Buffer Module, boasts an efficiency rating of up to 95 per cent and generates less heat, safeguarding its lifetime and reducing thermal stress for individual components. A power limiter function protects from overloads and aids start up, across the seven different available models, with output voltages of 12, 24 and 48 V.
Murrelektronik's Modlight signal towers indicate operating conditions using extremely bright LEDs. They will function maintenance-free for over 100,000 operating hours and output features an excellent relation to the power input.
Murrelektronik has a wide range of cable types and colours, such as M8/M12 round plugs that are quick and easy to install to fit with a torque wrench. Valve connectors are designed for all types of valves and are fitted with captive seals, as well as an integrated LED and protection circuit. The M12 Steel is a plug connector particularly suited to the extremely demanding hygiene rigours of the Food and Beverage industry.
The MVK Metal Compact Field I/O fieldbus modules come with IP67 protection and replaces complex wired, and therefore expensive, terminal boxes, as well as parallel wiring. The upshot is that space is saved in the control cabinet, servicing times are significantly shortened (reducing installation and maintenance costs) and the metal housings make them particularly suitable in rugged conditions, such as those experienced at Halder GmbH and their mobile debarking system.
Cable Drag Chain solutions, such as the M12 Male 90° / M12 Female 90° LED, offer IP67 protection with a maximum operating voltage of 30 V DC, maximum operating current per contact of 4 A, and screw thread M12 × 1 mm (recommended torque 0.6 Nm) self-securing locking.
