AutomationDirect adds Optocoupler and Slim Interface Relays, Multi-mode Relay Timers

November 11, 2020

Murrelektronik optocouplers, slim interface relays and multi-mode relay timers are now available from AutomationDirect.

Murrelektronik optocouplers (from $16.50) are used to combine different signal levels or to isolate one signal from another. Optocouplers are similar to relay interfaces, providing an optoelectronic signal transfer between input and output. Optocouplers have a long life span and are suitable for applications with high switching frequencies, even over a long usage period.

Murr slim interface relays (from $9.50) are highly compact, lightweight and especially useful when cabinet space is limited. Encased in a self-extinguishing plastic housing, these relays offer a long useful life, and are great for PLC automation systems, industrial machines and more.

Murr multi-mode relay timers ($27.50) are for use in industrial installations and automation control systems. Features include 35mm DIN rail mount, slim 6.2 mm design and a green LED status indicator. Time ranges are from 0.1 to 300 seconds.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
