Entrelec Magnet Wire Terminals

November 2, 2023

Efficient Solderless Magnet Wire Solutions

Magnet wire solutions from TE Connectivity deliver high-quality, cost-efficient, and clean terminations for motor, coil, solenoid, and other magnet wire applications. Solutions are available to terminate copper wire, aluminum wire or a combination of both.

MAG-MATE and SIAMEZE terminals are based on insulation displacement contact (IDC) technology, while AMPLIVAR products terminate magnet wire through crimp compression. For compressor applications, TE also offers cluster block connectors designed for terminating hermetic header pins.

These magnet wire solutions eliminate the need for pre-stripping and soldering of magnet wire, resulting in a highly repeatable and automatable termination process.

Magnet Wire Featured Products

MAG-MATE Terminals
Insulation displacement contact (IDC) terminals available in poke-in, poke-in tab, splice, crimp wire barrel, solder post, quick connect tab, pin, and receptacle styles. Standard MAG-MATE terminals accept 34-11AWG magnet wire.

AMPLIVAR Terminals & Splices
Crimp terminals and splices with a unique wire barrel design featuring serrations and burrs that displace magnet wire insulation without wire stripping. AMPLIVAR products are designed to terminate magnet wire to itself or in combination with solid or stranded lead wire.

SIAMEZE Terminals
Compact IDC terminals for interconnecting magnet wires, lead wires and other components in space limited systems. The terminal is available with a moving beam contact that accepts a wide range of wire sizes in a single part.

Cluster Blocks
Fully insulated, one piece housing connectors that allow electrical connection of sealed hermetic header pins on compressors. These connectors only accept pins from one side, preventing reversed polarity connections.

E-T-A CPC12 ControlPlex® System

July 25, 2022

Unrivalled Uptime in Machine Construction and Process Control

Requirements regarding product quality and stability of the production process are constantly rising in machine construction and process control.  The CPC12 ControlPlex System offers permanent data logging, analysis and processing.  This provides the required transparency to detect any changes in the production process at an early stage and to take countermeasures in time.

Consistency of the systems is particularly important.  Besides the field bus interfaces PROFINET and EtherCAT, the CPC12 bus controller also has another Ethernet interface. It allows access to the system even without fieldbus.  Direct access to the integral web server of the device is made possible.

All data and information are available on the device on site, but also in the office.  If the circuit protector has tripped, it can quickly be reset to operation.  Downtimes are reduced and machine uptime is increased.  Data can easily be analysed and evaluated later by means of remote access.

The modular REX system is especially adapted to the special requirements of machine construction and process control. The CPC12 bus controller extends the REX system by the connection to different fieldbus connections.  This makes your DC 24 V power distribution and protection more transparent than ever.

The REX12D electronic circuit protector records status and measuring values of each load circuit and transmits them to the bus controller.  System operators and maintenance staff thus receive all information they need to detect changes and possible undesirable developments at an early stage.

Schurter DIN Rail Kit

July 12, 2022

Schurter Logo1.jpg

Mounting Accessory for Compact 1- and 3-Phase Filters
• Simple Mounting
• Metal Clip for Good Ground Connection
• Complete Mounting Kit

Schurter is now offering DIN rail mounting kits for quick and easy installation of panel-mount filters in the control cabinet. These kits are available for a selected range of existing 1- and 3-phase filters of the Schurter portfolio.

Simple Mounting:
Often, you are missing the right filter for installation in the control cabinet. Thanks to the new DIN rail clips, it is now possible to install selected filters intended for screw mounting in the control cabinet.

To do this, simply screw the new Schurter DIN rail kit to the filter using the screws provided and snap it onto the DIN rail. Thanks to the metal clip, a good ground connection of the filter housing to the rail is guaranteed. This is particularly important for best filter performance.

Filter Selection:
Due to the necessarily compact design, the selection of dedicated DIN rail filters is limited. The selection is much wider of chassis mount filters: There are filters with standard, high or even excellent filter attenuation. The chassis mount filters also cover a wider current range and a wide variety of voltages.

The new Schurter DIN rail kits are suitable for the following filters:
