Murrelektronik's Emparro family has a new member: the Emparro 3-phase, which is touted as extremely reliable, efficient and requires minimal space in the cabinet. Manuel Senk, Product Manager for the Emparro range, said: “Emparro 3-phase stands for maximum reliability. Emparro 3-phase is extremely powerful and Emparro 3-phase saves a lot of space in customer's cabinets.

Emparro 3-phase has an MTBF time of 1 million hours, it has a 95% efficiency rate and Emparro 3 has both a power boost and a hyper boost. And completely new in the market is that Emparro 3 offers 20 per cent more power continuously up to 45 degrees celsius, he added.

M12 Power L-Coded and MQ15-X-Power

Power supply for fieldbus modules

The M12 Power L-Coded is perfect for small motors. You can get up to 16 Amps per pin, which is a maximum load. The contacts are also gold plated, which guarantees safe power transmission. It's ideal for small motors linear drives and stepper motors and a power supply for fieldbus modules. It's also IP67 protected for use directly in the field.

The connector technology from Murrelektronik is the MQ15-X-Power. It is powerful and can work all day long in any application you need. It connects asynchronous motors and 3-phase motors quickly with Murrelektronik's quick connect technology.

Applications in the Food and Beverage Industry

Jens Möllmann, Murrelektronik's Solution Manager for the Food and Beverage industry, said: “We have a lot of standard connectors with plastic moulding and stainless steel that are perfect for example for the secondary packaging industry, or primary packaging industry, and for sure also in the food process.

“Our absolutely premium product is the D12 steel D unbreakable connector with 360 stainless steel housing. One new member of this family is the angled version in the male and also the female version.”

He added: “Stainless steel junction boxes are really a huge cost driver in the Food and Beverage industry. You need stainless steel cable entries and a lot of installation time. So with our stainless steel distribution blocks you can collect all your digital signals directly near the sensor in the field and you will not lose your hygienic aspect.

“We have an extra high distance between the ground and the passive distribution block of 1.5cms, which allows you really good cleaning with high pressure guns even if there is a lot of dirt around.”
