Get the lead out; connect through enclosures; glass door

Three items talk about getting lead out of devices, making easy connections through industrial equipment enclosures, and installing glass-front doors to better see into existing enclosures.


An enclosure with a Saginaw Control & Engineering window on the front saves time by allowing visual inspection of devices without opening a door.

Items of interest about: getting lead out of devices, making easy connections through industrial equipment enclosures, and installing glass-front doors to better see into existing enclosures.

In January Control Engineering , an article talked on " Lifecycle Environmentalism ," included regulatory efforts to remove lead from electronics manufacturing. The following link tells how " Lead-free DDR modules meet global requirements ."

Break through to the other side with Allen-Bradley Bulletin 1667 PanelConnect: Make simple connections through enclosure walls, and easily interface with devices while maintaining panel integrity. Through-panel connection modules, along with optional pre-wired cable, can enhance profitability through a unique, easy-to-connect design. Read more from Rockwell Automation.

Saginaw Control & Engineering Enviroline Series Window Doors are designed for use with standard type 4, 4X, and 12 Enviroline enclosures where gages or equipment may need to be frequently checked without opening the door. It has a 0.25-in. polycarbonate window and powder coated ANSI 61 gray powder-coated finish. Kits are made of Type 304 stainless with #4 brushed finish.
