The reality is that machine builders are typically not responsible for safety beyond their own machines. For them, even a hardwired safety PLC is often considered cost prohibitive for a feature not required by the customer.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/cables-connectors-enclosures/networked-safety-why-it-will-pay-you-big-start-small" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/cables-connectors-enclosures/networked-safety-why-it-will-pay-you-big-start-small#comments Cables, Connectors, Enclosures White Papers Tue, 19 May 2015 17:57:00 +0000 48921 at http://machinedesign.com Sizing Fans for Electrical Enclosures http://machinedesign.com/cables-connectors-enclosures/sizing-fans-electrical-enclosures <div class="field-deck"> Simply knowing the cubic-feet-per-minute requirements is not enough when choosing fans. </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Several factors come into play when estimating the size of cooling fans needed to keep electronics cool inside enclosures.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/cables-connectors-enclosures/sizing-fans-electrical-enclosures" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/cables-connectors-enclosures/sizing-fans-electrical-enclosures#comments Cables, Connectors, Enclosures Thu, 14 May 2015 20:45:00 +0000 48831 at http://machinedesign.com Machine Design’s Products of the Week (5/4-5/11) http://machinedesign.com/gallery/machine-design-s-products-week-54-511 <div class="node-body gallery-body">From pumps to circuit-interrupting plug connectors, these products suit all types of applications.</div> <div class="field-interstitial-ads-frequency"> <span>Interstitial Ads Frequency:&nbsp;</span> -1 </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/gallery/machine-design-s-products-week-54-511" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/gallery/machine-design-s-products-week-54-511#comments Cables, Connectors, Enclosures Controllers Sensors Gallery Thu, 07 May 2015 17:59:00 +0000 48681 at http://machinedesign.com Problems VFD’s cause and cable types that help solve them http://machinedesign.com/cables-connectors-enclosures/problems-vfd-s-cause-and-cable-types-help-solve-them <div class="field-deck"> Sponsored by SAB North America </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Any machine that uses a VFD is subject to the effects of the drive’s chopped DC square-wave output signals.
