Integrating automation systems that save you time and money while increasing productivity.
We are all trying to find ways to save money. Right? One way that you can help your company do that is by scheduling a facility lighting audit. This is a great first step in cutting your energy costs. Our specialists will come to your facility and survey what your current lighting situation is and assess how it can be improved. They can create a lighting strategy that best fits your sustainability goals and budget.
High speed fuses are current-limiting devices. This means they reduce the prospective short-circuit current, and destructive thermal and mechanical forces in equipment to an acceptable level. High speed fuses are mainly for protecting semiconductors from short-circuits. Power semiconductors protected by high speed fuses are used in many applications: AC drives, DC drives, traction, soft starters, solid state relays, electrolysis, induction furnaces and inverters.
Have you ever considered programing a PowerFlex Drive like you do a Kinetix based Servo Drive? Rockwell Automation’s PowerFlex 527 is the first drive exclusively designed with Studio5000 and the Logix based architecture. It is an ideal AC drive to complement machines already using Kinetix servo drives. It features a built-in dual port for EtherNet/IP hardwired or networked safety. Using Studio 5000 software, the configuration and programming experience saves start up time, and delivers a coordinated and synchronized machine.
When looking for a distribution transformer would you like to be able to buy one that has more pre-installed standard features and can save you time and money in labor costs and extra parts? Of course you do. Hammond’s Sentinel® G distribution transformers do just that. They also meet the new DOE efficiency standards that went into effect on January 1 of this year. If you have an application that requires a transformer that is rated for 600 volts and below the HPS Sentinel® G general purpose distribution transformer is perfect for you to use when supplying appliance, lighting, heating, motorized machine and power loads from electrical distribution systems.
Have you considered putting solar panels on your roof at home or office? If so, is it a concern you’re your roof may become damaged from the weight of the solar array? The other question you might have is can I simply put a solar array on my roof because of the pitch? And, what about the fact that I live where it snows and the weather isn’t ideal for solar? The IronRidge XR Rail forms the backbone of a solar array – whether used in a pitched roof, flat roof, or ground-based solar installation. XR Rails come in three targeted sizes and feature a unique curved profile, which increases structural strength and spanning capability.
How are you connecting your Allen-Bradley PowerFlex Variable Frequency Drives (VFD) to motors? Are you using THHN in pipe? Are you using shielded tray cable? Are you using motor supply cable? If you answered yes to any of these questions you might want to consider this. VFD cables from Belden offer greater performance over THHN because of the industrial grade insulation within the cable which results in a more reliable cable.
Brady’s BMP21 Plus printer is terrific for industrial, electrical or construction application. It’s great for any size business. It’s packaged in an easy to use format.

The printer recognizes the label size differences, so there’s no extra steps required when making size changes. When you cut the label, it stays with the printer until you are ready to use it helping to make sure your label doesn’t fall on the ground and become dirty.
Ideal’s Twister® LT Wire Connectors can be counted as a quality product that performances great no matter what your wire size. The Twister LT is designed for peak performance and maximum comfort on big electrical jobs in tight spaces. The compact design makes them perfect for any lighting installation or retrofit. They can handle wire ranges in sizes from 2 #22 gauge, up to 3 #12 gauge with solid or stranded conductors. The square wire spring and comfortable swept wing design provides a fast secure connection. They can be applied using any of the twisted nut screwdrivers, the spin twist connector tool or a standard ¼” hex driver.
The Compact GuardLogix® 5370 controller continues to build on the 5370 CompactLogix™ midrange portfolio with the addition of a single controller that supports Integrated Safety, CIP Motion, and Standard I/O. Along with a single hardware package, this controller utilizes a single software package for configuration and a single Network for Standard, Safety and Motion. The safety status indicators provide on-going safety updates so you’re never left wondering what your machine status is.
Prosoft Technology’s AN-X2-AB-DHRIO gateway helps you migrate legacy remote I/O or data highway plus PLC’s to ControlLogix or CompactLogix PAC’s. In addition, gateways also enable your Remote I/O PLC to control the latest EtherNet/IP PowerFlex drives or PanelView Plus 6 terminals. ProSoft Technology’s migration gateways can be added to an existing remote I/O network and monitor the changing states of I/O. When upgrading your control system, you can end up getting downtime.
Roxtec seals for cables and pipes benefit original equipment manufacturers and end-users. When properly installed they help to protect your employees and your assets. The advantages of using Roxtec seals are that you can quickly, easily and safely seal multiple pre-terminated cables of different sizes. The cable seals help to keep your work space neat and operations running efficiently no matter what you produce.
When designing a HMI system, you need a solution that optimizes factory workspace, without sacrificing worker ergonomics. The new Hoffman SYSPEND 180-MAX is a modular support arm system that allows you to design customized configurations to address the worker, without the lead time of a custom ordered solution, getting you to work faster. With only six small set screws connecting tubes to couplings, building a system is quick and easy to install too, cutting installation time in half.
