Multi-Contact is escalating its modular connector system CombiTac with the Last Mate First Break module CT-LMFB. The new module will be premiered at SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg on 2627 November 2015.
CT-LMFB was designed especially for monitoring the connection status of electrical CombiTac contacts. Its applications are monitoring and control functions in industry, automation and mechanical engineering. It may be utilised as a high-voltage interlock loop (HVIL) to stop unplugging under load or as a safety circuit to let go of the power supply. The trail module is made for automated applications with up to 100,000 connection cycles in difficult industrial environments. Error-free monitoring is guaranteed, even against shocks and vibrations, in line with DIN 50467.
The CombiTac modular connector system enables the individual combination of power and control contacts, thermo-elements, and co-axial contacts, as well as fibreoptic, pneumatic, hydraulic, and Ethernet contacts in a compact frame or casing. The CombiTac Configurator means that the modules may be easily chosen and constructed with an application-specific connector.
The electrical contacts are designed after the proven MULTILAM technology, with performance ensured even after an excess of 100,000 connection cycles. The connectors are utilised in automation and robotics, mechanical engineering, test applications, railway and transport technology, the automotive industry, and medical technology.
