Conta-Clip KDS-Click products, cable entry system solutions

Cable Entry Systems

Cable entry systems are becoming more advanced as requirements are changing within the automation and machine market. The need for bringing pre-assembled cables is more common, so traditional glands cannot be used. Conta-Clip have developed a large range of cable entry systems that can accommodate single cables or multiple cables in a small footprint. They consist of only 3 parts and are quick and easy to assemble. The KDS range use common split inserts allowing round or flat cables, tubes & pipes to be fed into an enclosure without the need to remove the connectors. For cables without connectors, the KES range enables a large amount of cables of various size to be fed into an enclosure in a compact, low profile single piece assembly. Using the KES system takes up far less enclosure space than using normal glands. The KDS and KES range are IP66 as standard & Ecolab approved, so ideal for washdown environments.
A range of Conta-Clip cable ferrules in various colours, sizes and arrnged in a circle

Cable Ferrules

Conta-Clip offer a wide range of cable ferrules, also known as Boot Lace ferrules, for terminating cables ends. There are many benefits for using cable ferrules on cables. <h4>Stray Strands</h4> The ferrule reduces the possibility of having stray strands of conductor that could easily cause a short circuit in neighbouring connections. Due to the construction of the ferrule, the strands are guided into pin, then when crimped the strands will no longer be able to separate. <h4>Repeatable Termination</h4> In applications where the cables could be removed and re-terminated, such as replacing components within a Panel, stranded cables can soon break down. This could lead into to the installer having to cut and strip the existing cable in a confined space. The cable ferrule protects the cable and makes it easier to re-insert in to the terminals. The range includes insulated ferrules for single and dual cables, along with a range of non-insulated if required. For easy recognition of the correct ferrule size to use for each cable, the insulated range are colour coded. There are 3 colour standards being used in industry, which all differ slightly: - <ul> <li>DIN <li>German <li>French</li> </ul>

SABK cable shield clip from Conta-Clip on an orange cable

Cable Shield Clips

In the ever growing industry of process engineering and the use of sensitive equipment and PLC's, the need for a higher degree of interference protection is required for these systems. To ensure the best possible EMC protection the cable shielding and grounding is of the upmost importance. The connection point of the cable screen and the clip is a critical point and is required to be a low Ohm resistance and minimum inductive resistance. Conta-Clip offer one of the most comprehensive range of practical, simple and quick to mount shielding clip products on the market today

Kubler LED pulse counter codix 52C

Counters

The user-friendly, compact and functionally well thought through Codix process displays and controller are ideal for all linear and non-linear analog signals. Electromechanical counters in many versions, as well as miniature counters for PCB mounting, are ideal time and pulse counters for pumps, lifts, dryers, UV lamps, KWh meters and much more. The Codix series offers functional, low cost electronica display counters, position displays, timers and tachometers. Our electronic multifunction preset counters enable decentralized control and so reduce cycle times. Pulse counters are primarily used to count a number of pulses or signals while a running time meter counts the time a signal is high or low. Multifunction counters can be programmed to use tachometer pulse counters or running time meter with multiple settings for signals and relay outputs. Preset Counters are used to measure the electrical pulses, and with the help of adjustable presets trigger various functions. Multifunction counters are used with PNP or NPN signals to measure, among other things; length, speed, number of mm.

IO-Link

IO-Link is a point-to-point communication protocol that is used to connect industrial automation devices, such as sensors and actuators, to controllers and other devices in a control system. It provides a standardized communication interface between these devices, allowing for easy configuration, monitoring, and control of devices from a central location. One of the key features of IO-Link is that it is a digital communication protocol, which means that it provides much more information about connected devices than traditional analog systems. This information includes the device's identity, status, and diagnostic information, which can be used for predictive maintenance, fault detection, and other applications. IO-Link operates over a standard three-wire connection, with one wire for communication and two wires for power. It can operate at speeds of up to 38.4 kbps over distances of up to 20 meters, depending on the specific implementation. IO-Link devices are typically connected to an IO-Link master, which acts as a gateway between the devices and the control system. IO-Link has become increasingly popular in industrial automation applications due to its ease of use, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness. It is compatible with a wide range of devices and can be easily integrated into existing systems, making it an attractive option for many manufacturers and system integrators.

Crouzet 3-phase voltage monitoring relay

Monitoring Relays

A control relay is an electronic device which can be used to detect and monitor physical or electrical values such as current, voltage, phase sequence, level, etc. The control relay ensures total availability of equipment, a major challenge for industries keen to improve their productivity and operating profits. It is one of the indispensable monitoring components for ensuring continuity of service of each installation.<br />If a fault is detected, the machine is not allowed to run and the user is informed of the abnormality by a visual signal. After being alerted, the user can then correct the malfunction. This avoids expensive breakdowns, that lead to product delays and loss of profitability.<br /> <ul><li>Positive logic output to protect installations in the event of a power failure. <li>True RMS guaranteed regardless of interference on the electrical supply. <li>Self powered three phase products. <li>Supply voltage from 24 to 240 V in single unit for optimised stock.</li></ul>

Solid State Relays

The semiconductor technology allows for the development of solid state relays, which, in contrast to electromechanical relays, do not contain any moving parts. The switching is purely electronic and therefore free of wear. Solid state relays are increasingly replacing electromechanical relays in certain industrial sectors. This is especially the case for applications with a high number of switching cycles and high switching frequencies or for applications, where very rare yet very reliable switching is required.

Conta-clip TKS transformer terminals

Transformer Terminals

Conta-clip transformer terminals are designed to be directly mounted to a core/bobbin that has integrated receptacles. They can also be mounted on aluminium 10x2 DIN rails. They are used for converting coil ends to screw-/spade connections, for connecting to the device being powered or to parts of the facility. The TKS range is unique, as the cover can be clipped back to the top of the terminal, so helps prevent accidental melting of the cover when soldering the wire to the hook. All transformer terminals feature the proven clamping yoke system which guarantees a vibration-resistant connection. Touch safety in compliance with VBG 4 is ensured because of the closed housing design (material is polyamide PA 6.6 UL 94-V0).   The range includes 1-, 2 & 3 pole variants suitable for 4mm & 10mm cables.  The standard colours are orange and grey,   There are also a range of matching 4mm fuse terminals that can be selected. The PMC SB 7,5 quick marking system is used for labelling the transformer terminals.  A large range of pre-marked makers are held in stock.   The previous TK range is still available and can be clipped together using the dove tail moulding, allowing a custom number of poles in one strip.
