LAPP Introduces a Plug-And-Play Data Cable Monitoring Device at PACK EXPO 2022

DCS LAPP Introduces Plug and Play Data Cable Monitoring Degvice at PACKs 2022 1 400x275

October 31, 2022


ETHERLINE® GUARD is a new, plug-and-play cable monitoring device that acquires sensor data about the physical properties of industrial Ethernet data cables, allowing users to monitor actual cable performance and identify degradation over time. With ETHERLINE® GUARD, users can implement a preventative maintenance strategy while avoiding unplanned downtimes and premature cable replacement.

This compact, easy-to-use device is well-suited for 100BASE-TX (up to 100 Mbit/s) data cables in accordance with IEEE 802.3 as well as EtherCAT®, EtherNET/IP™ and 2-pair PROFINET® applications. 

In addition to ETHERLINE® GUARD, visitors to the booth also checked out many other products from LAPP’s varied lineup. Highlights include:

-SKINTOP® MULTI-M strain relief bushing system. This multi-cable bushing system organizes multiple unharnessed cables and provides high packing density to save space in tight cabinet installations. Elastic gel technology gives each cable an IP68 seal.

-LAPP ӦLFLEX® VFD – light, medium, and heavy-duty cable range. Engineered to operate in harsh factory conditions, LAPP ӦLFLEX® VFD cables resist oil, water and impacts. LAPP also showcased their ӦLFLEX® VFD Slim, 1XL and 2XL – their light, medium and heavy duty VFD cable range.

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.
