MC-4-Pizzato-YShapedM12Connector-400.jpg

March 4, 2021

The wiring accessories now include a new one- or two-way connector without cables, item code VF CY203P0, which can be used for connecting multiple devices in series.

The adaptor consists of a sturdy polyurethane body housing an M12 female 8-pin connector on the device side and two M12 male and female 5-pin connectors on the wiring side, which can be used to derive the power supply and the safety inputs/outputs on the various devices of the series.

The new connector helps to achieve extremely compact wiring, a much-appreciated feature in all applications in which there is limited space in the cable trays and junction boxes.

The new compact 3-way connector for series connections adds to the Y-shaped M12 connector with 150 mm-long cables, item code VF CY201P0, which remains available in the catalogue for all wiring requirements.

The advantages:

  •    -   sturdy polyurethane body;
  •    -   suitable for connecting up to 32 devices in series;
  •    -   compact wiring dimensions;
  •    -   compatible with the anti-tampering protection devices of the VF PC series.

MC PepperlFuchs Monitoring Condition of Plants w Vibration Sensors 3a 400

To enable long-term monitoring of vibrations, Pepperl+Fuchs recently launched a new portfolio of vibration sensors. You can find out what distinguishes these products in the following blog article. Using a wind turbine as an application example, we will also show you how you can use vibration and acceleration sensors in combination to keep an eye on both long-term and short-term changes in vibration.

The portfolio of vibration sensors

Pepperl+Fuchs has recently started offering a range of vibration sensors to perform reliable measurements of vibration velocity and acceleration in low or high frequency ranges. Compared to similar products, Pepperl+Fuchs’ vibration sensors have approvals up to SIL 2, a large measuring range of up to 128 mm/s, and automatic condition detection for ball bearings. Due to their robust housing and encapsulated electronics, the sensors impress with maintenance-free operation and a particularly long service life.

The three designs in the portfolio are available with different certifications and approvals. In this way, you can find the right vibration sensor for every application:

  • VIM3 series: The compact VIM3 series is suitable for applications up to SIL 1/PL c, and has output options for analog or IO-Link.
  • VIM6 series: The VIM6 series is approved for hazardous areas up to Zone 1/21. With an extended temperature operating range of -40°C … +125 °C, the sensors are ideal for high-temperature areas.
  • VIM8 series: Due to a particularly robust housing made of duplex steel, the vibration sensors of the VIM8 series are designed for use in offshore applications as well as in harsh and hazardous areas of Zone 1/21. Moreover, the sensors have an approval up to SIL 2/PL d.

 

Vibration sensors vs. acceleration sensors

Not only vibration sensors, but also acceleration sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs are used to measure changes in vibration: Both record the vibration acceleration in g. Nevertheless, the sensors differ in their technical operating principle and are therefore each suitable for different applications.
