Sensor Actuator Interface

September 6, 2013 – 11:09

SAI distributors combine the signals from sensors and actuators in machines and systems. This cuts installation and service costs due to the use of pre-assembled cables and conventional M5/M8/M12 circular connectors.

SAI Products from Weidmüller are reliable, economical and durable. Our comprehensive product range not only adapts to the various bus systems but also to different environments such as rough industrial surroundings or those requiring Ex-protected components.

Sensor-Actuator-Interface (SAI) Cable with Plastic Coupling Nuts for Harsh Environment Applications

Weidmuller’s plastic coupling nuts are designed for harsh environment applications where aggressive cleaning agents are used or corrosive elements are present. Plastic coupling nuts are an economical alternative to expensive stainless steel solutions often used in corrosive environments.

Weidmuller’s plastic coupling nuts are resistant to corrosion, ensuring safe and reliable connections in wash-down, high humidity and chemically aggressive environments. They can help optimize machine up time through decreased product failures and maintenance time.

Sensor and Actuator Cables

Weidmuller offers a wide variety of SAI cables with quick turnaround times. Our broad offering enusres flexibility in the application. We can also develop and produce solutions for specific customer requirements. We regularly produce cables, for example, with customer specific labels and logos.

Weidmuller’s new high flex cables have been designed and tested in C-track applications, where the cable continuously rolls back and forth, over 2100mm at 1.75m/s and an acceleration reaching 50m/s2. The halogen free PUR/PUR cables achieved a rating of 2 million cycles and the standard PUR/PVC cables are rated at 20 million cycles.

Fieldbus, Data Cables and Accessories

The bus system lies at the heart of automation engineering. High quality products are essential to achieve long term, smooth functionality. Not only the bus slaves and controllers play a significant role but also the type of cables and connection technologies used are very important. Weidmuller bus cables for Profibus, Industrial Ethernet and CANopen/DeviceNet are the perfect solution. They feature a fully 360 degree shielding providing effective protection for signal and data transmission. Additionally, our special production strategy allows us to quickly manufacture parts that are customized to a specific order.

Plug-in Connector and Protective Caps

Self assembled M8 and M12 connectors are integral and essential connectivity components. They are available with a wide variety of different wire connection technologies. Weidmuller offers all of the proven connection methods, including screw, tension clamp, IDC, and solder connection technology. One of the highlights in this line is the shielded, D-coded M12 connector available in male and female version, with screw as well as tension-clamp connection.

Weidmuller also offers high density M12 connectors in 8 pole with screw connection. These connectors are available as shielded as well as unshielded versions.

My old benz 300e was getting pretty bad gas mileage, and hell to start. The mechanic replaced these items. Mileage is good, but still pretty hard to start the first time. Have been back to shop couple of times, but can't seem to get both right, its either bad mileage, or tough start.
Any suggestions?
