Rockwell Automation has extended its Modular Control System (MCS) product range with the addition of three new miniature components, 100-K contactor, 700-K control relay and 193-K bimetallic overload relay.
The new additions to the miniature component range provide industry with a compact contactor/overload relay assembly that is flexible and easy to assemble. The 193-K bimetallic overload relay mounts directly onto the 100-K contactor, allowing compact, custom starters to be assembled quickly and easily.
The total MCS Mini assembly occupies smaller footprint, and is ideal for use in small machines, industrial white goods, HVAC systems, and a myriad of other applications.
Rated to 690V, the 100-K contactor and 700-K control relay feature a new snap-in assembly system, allowing many different contactor configurations to be created.
In addition, an IEC-rated front-pluggable mechanical interlock for AC and DC contactors allows the mounting of auxiliary contacts and suppressors on top, without the need for tools.
Bifurcated, self-cleaning auxiliary contacts, provide a four-way current path, and ensure high contact reliability for low signal levels.
The 100-K contactor and the 700-K control relay are also available with a push-in termination technology, offering considerable time savings in wiring, plus improved long-term connection integrity in high-vibration environments.
Modular wiring kits save time in building starter combinations. Both components feature wide-range coils and their low coil power consumption allows them to be driven directly from a PLC.
Complementing the 100-K contactor and 700-K control-relay is the 193-K bimetallic overload relay, adding cost-effective motor protection to the new MCS Mini package.
Compatible with both AC and DC motors, the 193-K bimetallic overload relay features automatic, manual and remote reset functions, with differential release protecting motors in phase-loss, as well as overload conditions.
