High Inrush Currents in Lighting Technology

TURCK 9/11/2018
High Inrush Currents in Lighting TechnologyLighting technology has been changing for some years now. Traditional light bulbs are rapidly being re- placed with energy-efficient light sources such as fluorescent lamps and LEDs. All of these lamps have one thing in common: they require electronic control gear (ECG). The contacts on conventional relays wear out very quickly if used for triggering these devices.

Industrial Relays MRC QRC IRC

TURCK 9/11/2018
Industrial Relays MRC QRC IRCWhile "normal" relays are monostable, i.e. they return to the idle state when the excitation is switched off, remanence relays are bistable, i.e. the current switching state is retained irrespective of the excitation. Relays of this type are available in different versions.

Select The Right Relay for The Right Application

TURCK 9/11/2018
Select The Right Relay for The Right ApplicationTungsten contacts have a higher melting point that help resist high power peaks and protect main contacts. High power peaks during switch-on of electrical loads, for example when switching power supplies and ballasts can lead to welding of the contacts. Early make tungsten contacts resist high inrush currents and avoid contact welding.

Operating Distance (Sensing Range) Considerations

TURCK 8/2/2018
Operating Distance (Sensing Range) ConsiderationsThe operating distance (S) of the different models is basically a function of the diameter of the sensing coil. Maximum operating distance is achieved with the use of a standard or larger target. Rated operating distance (Sn) for each model is given in the manual. When using a proximity sensor the target should be within the assured range (Sa).

Sensor Operating Principles

TURCK 8/2/2018
Sensor Operating PrinciplesWhen a metal object enters the high-frequency field, eddy currents are induced on the surface of the target. This results in a loss of energy in the oscillator circuit and, consequently, a smaller amplitude of oscillation. The detector circuit recognizes a specific change in amplitude and generates a signal which will turn the solid-state output "ON" or "OFF".

Shielded Cordsets

TURCK 8/2/2018
Shielded CordsetsWhenever wire is used to transmit electrical data, it is possible for the wire to absorb external noise, possibly changing the characteristics of the electrical signal, or to give off noise that could cause changes in other electrical components that are near. Shielding is the act of placing conductive material between the potential noise emitters and receivers.
