Mencom Corporation can be found in Booth #E-4674 in the Industrial Automation North America Pavilion which is located in the Lakeside Center(East) Building.

In engineering, the term solenoid refers to a variety of transducer devices that convert energy into linear motion. The term is also often used to refer to a solenoid valve, which is an integrated device containing an electromechanical solenoid which actuates either a pneumatic or hydraulic valve, or a solenoid switch. Connectors may either be purchased individually or as part of a molded cable assembly. Termination options also include field wireable, overmolded cable or pre-wired receptacles.

Mencom’s Solenoid Valve Connectors meet the DIN 43650 Industry Standard and are ideal for providing power and protection to solenoid valves and PLCs on the factory floor. Squared DIN style valve connectors reduce wiring time and improve efficiency.  Users can specify circuit, component type, pin count, AMP rating, voltage rating, wire gauge, color code, gender, cable jacket material, jacket color, cable length, shell/coupling nut material, mounting thread, coupling thread, head orientation, and ingress protection.

Mencom’s New Armored Cables for Harsh Manufacturing Environments

Posted on January 22nd, 2014

header_post

One of the biggest challenges that every manufacturer struggles with, is how to prevent downtime or outage caused by connection failure. Abusive manufacturing environments with extreme conditions are where these issues are most likely to take place. Sometimes it is difficult to diagnose and locate the exact problem of the failure because of its complex installation or location. Short and repetitive downtime with constant replacement is usually caused by cable failures and can be prevented by installing proper cables equipped with extra protection.

In most cases the downtime is usually caused by one of following conditions:

  • Physical failure by repetitive impacts and abrasion with loaded components
  • Damage by high pressure washdown and cleaning chemical
  • Damage by extreme temperature
  • Weld Slag

Car-Product-line    washdown    weldslag

Mencom’s new line of armored, quick disconnect cables provides a rugged solution for harsh environments. They are available in MDC(M12) Connectors and MIN(7/8″) Connectors.

ILME Multipole Connector Kits

Posted on September 4th, 2013

Heavy Duty Connector KitMencom is now offering ILME Rectangular Connectors in a kit. This combination of components will enable you, or your design engineer, to quickly bring together your heavy duty electrical connection. (Shop for a kit).

 

Each kit contains a base, a mating hood and the male and female inserts that match. All you need to add is a cable gland and your solution is complete.

 

Standard Kits

  • 3 to 24 Poles
  • Metric Hood Opening
  • Screw or Tool-less Spring Terminals
  • IP66
Cable Glands

Metal and Plastic Cable Glands

As each process or machine design has unique requirements when it comes to cord grip sizes, we offer cable glands separately. Available in plastic or nickel plated brass, metric cable glands will mate with our standard ILME kits. If you need another thread type, such as NPT or PG.  (Shop for cable glands).

Custom Solutions

Custom solutions have been a part of Mencom’s practice since its inception.  The ILME Kits are no exception.  If your project requires a connection that will withstand a harsh environment, we offer the 180° C series of hoods and basis.  On the other hand, perhaps a thermoplastic insulated (and often economical) connector is the answer; we have that too and can put it together with the inserts to make a kit.

Alternative Enclosures

ILME Housings - Electrical Connectors

  • EMC: Electromagnetic Capacity
  • T-type:  Thermoplastic
  • 180° C:  Harsh Environment
  • BIG:  Larger Capacity
  • W-type: Aggressive Environment

Happy Birthday Ethernet!

Posted on July 17th, 2013

Happy Birthday EthernetAn innovative method allowing computers to send packets of information while avoiding collisions with incoming packets, Ethernet has matured across the last four decades into its role as the basis of the IEEE 802.3™ standard, which specifies the physical and lower software layers, and is the foundation for today’s world of high-speed communications.

With more than 1.2 billion ports shipped in 2012 alone, Ethernet ranks highly among those technologies that impact day-to-day life on a global basis. Data center networks, PCs, laptops, tablets, smartphones, and now the smart grid, smart meters, personal medical devices, the Internet of Things, connected cars, and more – Ethernet touches them all in one way or another. And as Ethernet turns 40, it is poised for a new age of innovation.
