“Our OMNIMATE device connectivity supports innovative connectivity solutions.”
Whether for homes, offices, commerce, construction trades or industry, the field of heat generation is becoming increasingly complex. Modern heat generation systems must be equipped with electronic controls to ensure that energy is used economically and that efficiency is continuously optimised, based on data feedback.
Manufacturers of heat generation systems, and of the intelligent electronics for such systems, are confronted with increasingly complex challenges. One key area is the selection of a suitable plug-in connection that delivers the highest possible degree of safety, in combination with practical application functions. The latter includes coding elements, options for colour coding or print labelling of connections and reliable solutions for secure interlocking and screw connections. Plug-in connectors for actuators must guarantee touch safety, support a conductor cross-section of at least 1.5 mm² and must be compatible with conventional tools for service work. Another consideration is that the male connectors on the board should be made of a reflow-capable insulation material (SMT components) to make the soldering process as cost-effective as possible.
Weidmüller has redefined the performance of sensor inputs in the pitch sizes 3.50 mm (0.138″) and 3.81 mm (0.15″). New standards have been set with a 17.5 A current-carrying capacity, reliable transmission at ambient temperatures up to 65 °C.
OMNIMATE signal PCB terminals with “PUSH IN” spring connections are especially suitable for remote signal inputs. You can easily connect and disconnect even solid cables or conductors with ferrules without the need for tools. With the new LSF-SMD family, we meet demands for fully-automatic PCB surface mount installation using the SMD soldering procedure.
We address the demand for increased current carrying capacities with the standard “High Current (HC) Update” for our plug-in connectors. In combination with suitable HC male headers for the wave or SMT soldering, we achieve current values that are well above the market average
Our RJ45 connection components for the PCB offer electromagnetic compatibility, shielding protection and fulfil the requirements of IEC 60603-7-5. They are also especially well equipped to meet future demands as they fulfil the requirements of the latest Cat.-6 standard for Gigabit applications.
