The complex global supply chain has a an ever-stronger demand for customization along with the desire for more data collection. Manufacturers and OEM’s are attempting to gain productivity improvements and uncover new ways of streamlining manufacturing and supply chain production. Sealcon can help with its vast portfolio of products. Among them is our Hybrid connectors which combine various electrical and data functions in one unit. Sealcon Hybrid connectors combine offering equipment status and transmission power with easier field maintenance. They transmit power, signals, (analog) and data/Ethernet (digital) all within one connector shell. Sealcon Hybrid connectors are available in M23 and M40 sizes and have many advantages.

Sealcon’s M23 hybrid (4+4+4) Circular Connector is the compact all-in-one solution for the transmission of power, Industrial Ethernet (IE) and signals. The plug-connector series unites the separate, shielded data transmission on 4 contacts according to CAT.5e with a high processing power on 4 additional power contacts (up to 28A and 630V). Data transmission rates of up to 500 MBit/s are possible without any problems. In addition, 4 other contacts are available for signal transmission. The assembly time is minimal, and the Ethernet element is simply snapped into place. Sealcon also has a more powerful option for larger power transmission the M40 connector.

The M40 Hybrid is a robust powerhouse. It combines the power of the standard series with the versatility of a hybrid connector. This circular connector transmits power up to 55 A and parallel data rates up to 100 Mbps. A special feature of the M40 Hybrid are the high electrical characteristics of the signal contacts. They enable users in servo technology to achieve transmission rates of up to 300 V/7 A for brakes.

Some of the advantages of Sealcon Hybrid connectors are one connector instead of 2 or 3 (=> at least halving), reduced space requirement, shorter processing time for connector assembly, reduced costs, less weight on the end device (e.g., motor), several cables can also be brought together in one connector (Multi). There is also a push for “OCT” or One Cable Technology.

Single cable solutions with hybrid connectors (OCT – One Cable Technology) are becoming increasingly important in automation and robotics. They transmit power, signals, and Ethernet in one connection. This saves assembly time, space, and money.

The Sealcon M40 Hybrid connector is also available with a Twilock-S option. The Twilock-S option makes Sealcon circular connectors intermateable with Speedtec by Intercontec/TE. It is now possible to spec in a Sealcon M40 Hybrid Twilock-S into an existing Speedtec application. 

A characteristic feature of Sealcon connectors is their absolute suitability for industrial applications. Metal housings protect the sensitive and impact-sensitive contact inserts safely and reliably. The various housing insert designs and contacts can be combined and thus offer the user a wide range of variants. Choose Sealcon Quality.

DCS SEW MOVIC 1 400x275

 

When it comes to power transmission and motion control, SEW-EURODRIVE needs no formal introduction. Counted among the industry leaders in drive technology, SEW-EURODRIVE makes drive-based automation its business. SEW-EURODRIVE, founded in 1931, is a global company that specializes in gear motors, frequency inverters, drive systems, industrial gears, and control software. SEW-EURODRIVE products are distinguished by their modular components and customer-centric philosophy. Their modular components can be built in a multitude of configurations, durable gear housings, offer flexible mounting capabilities, and provide advanced electronics that ensure equipment continuously operates efficiently.

Drives & Control Solutions' sibling, Mechatronics Canada, had the opportunity to speak with Shane Carnegie, Electronics Product Manager at SEW-EURODRIVE Canada, to learn more about MOVI-C, a modular automation system that offers a full solution for automation tasks. MOVI-C has been continuously expanding its reach into the mechatronics space, offering an encompassing solution for machine builders and integrators. Below Shane walks us through some of MOVI-C’s unique features and real-world applications.

Can you explain what MOVI-C does?

MOVI-C is an all-in-one modular automation system. Building on the familiar SEW modular gear motors and previous generation inverters, we now have modular inverters, controllers and associated software which ties everything together. For example, you can have a gear box with an AC induction motor, a permanent magnet motor, or a servo motor based on your application requirements. Attached to that we can provide a motor controller which can be mounted in a panel or directly on or near the gear motor. The positioning or velocity control software can be pre-loaded into the motor controller at the factory and all that is required is to send the same standard process data words from your main PLC to the drive system to perform your desired motion. The software interface looks identical no matter what controller or underlying gear motor system is attached.

What are some of the major features that MOVI-C has to offer?
