New Products: Tactile Remote Switch

March 3, 2009
The Tactile Remote Switch is the latest addition to the company’s line of pressure-sensitive safety and sensing switches

The BL20 motor-starter module uses Swire technology for daisy-chain connection from a single I/O slice to each motor starter via a ribbon cable. Swire lets motor starters mount on separate DINrails within the same panel. The module lets threephase motor control be connected to the same rack as standard I/O. The BL20 comes in 0.08 to 20 hp, both direct and reversing, for use on DeviceNet, Profibus, CANopen, EtherNet/IP, and Modbus TCP/IP networks with both standard and programmable gateways. Trip indication may also be added to any motor starter.
