PKE 65 Motor-Protective Circuit-Breaker with Electronic Wide-Range Overload Protection Extends the PKE Range.

As one of the leading manufacturers of components and systems for electrical engineering and automation, Eaton is now offering new PKE 65 motor-protective circuit-breakers with wide-range overload protection. Electrical motors currently in operation come in a wide range of different variants. In the majority of processes their particular features enable them to determine production efficiency. A motor fault often not only jeopardizes the device, but also prevents a smooth production process and causes costly downtimes. Motor protection is therefore not only essential from a technical point of view but also from a financial perspective.


SmartWire-DT Now Also for Ethernet/IP and Modbus-TCP.

As one of the leading manufacturers of components and systems for electrical engineering and automation, Eaton is now offering a new gateway for SmartWire-DT in order to connect to Ethernet IP and Modbus TCP. The innovative SmartWire-DT communication system for networking control circuit and switching devices can now also be connected to controllers via an Ethernet/IP or Modbus-TCP network. This is made possible thanks to the new EU5C-SWD-EIP-MODTCP SmartWire-DT gateway which comes with a 10/100MBit switch and simplifies the configuration of linear structures.


New radio standard with longer-range wireless connection

The steute business field »Wireless« is continuing to expand the number of possible industrial applications for its innovative »energy harvesting« radio technology. steute is introducing a new radio standard which, has the advantage of a longer-range wireless connection.
