BASE PLATE MOTOR SYSTEM
The growing request for automation, demands small-size connectors suitable for confined space installation. Motor drive connectors need to be reliable, fast, and easy to plug in and disconnect. ILME provides several compact connectors that combine signals and power in a single format. The connector design makes service, maintenance, and installation simple, reducing assembly and machine downtime.
For a medium-size to a large-size robot, unifying the signal and power line into one connector, allows maintaining the automation design easy and reduces the overall installation costs. ILME combined connectors equal the wiring of two separate inserts in one, offering a solid solution for up to 3 axes robot, saving space for additional connections.
Compact combined connection
Combined monoblock connectors with power and signal poles offer a compact connection interface, combining two or even three connectors in one. The CX 9/42 ILME connector features nine 40A power contacts to cover the motion of up to three major axes and an additional 18 + 24 10A poles for mid-power and auxiliary connections.
AUXILIARY ROBOT CONNECTION
A welding process typically uses high current requiring durable and versatile connectors expected to work for a prolonged time. ILME Mixo range offers several compact modules suitable for combinations of signals, high power, data, and pneumatics fittings in a single connector, allowing to build a personalized solution for any possible application.
MIXO modular connector combinations
Central lever enclosures have a solid slim locking mechanism with large cable entries (up to M50, top/side versions), protecting the installation of different MIXO modules for electrical, data and pneumatic connections.
MIXO MODULAR INSERTS:
ROBOT TOOLS CHANGER AND ARM CONNECTION
Robot tooling requires flexibility, durability, and frequent tool changes: connectors must withstand a high number of mating cycles covering different equipment and processing needs. As a result, ILME offers a wide range of compact inserts and contacts ranging from single-purpose to multifunctional use, available with both standard silver-plated contacts or gold-plated High Number of Matings version (HNM).
CONVEYOR DRIVE SYSTEMS
Conveyor belts and motor drives work to synchronize the assembly lines production process during all its stages. Signals for electrical motors need to be EMC shielded from high-frequency inverters with standardized cable assembly for a modular approach to automation design. ILME compact connectors offer a compact pluggable solution for a smart installation.
POWER AND CONTROL CABINET
Flexibility, easy maintenance, and easy mounting are essential for the control cabinet. There are several ways to use connectors inside or outside the cabinet. ILME offers connectors designed for serviceability and safety, varying mounting arrangements for use inside the cabinet, bulkhead, and surface mounted, as well as retrofit solutions for pre-prepared servo cables.
DIN-rail multiple connectors support
The COB 03/3 connector support has been designed to install three “21.21” size complete connectors to provide a compact DIN rail mounting solution. Main and auxiliary devices requiring an independent wiring solution can be connectorized for quick connection and disconnection.
CONTROL PENDANTS AND INTERFACES
ILME offers a variety of connectors for different interface applications (USB, HDMI, and SCADA) as well as for all types of signals and mounting arrangements, such as Ethernet access points, HDMI video, and fiber optic data transmission.
There are many types of auxiliary equipment for robot applications, and they all need easy-to-use and robust connectors. ILME develops solutions suitable for conveyor belts, machine safety products, light curtains, and more: whether it is required to meet process or safety controls, ILME connectors achieve the industrial automation demands for compactness, durability, and flexibility.
Camera detection system
Production status control and verification might require high-definition inspection devices and data modules. The MIXO HDMI 2.0 modules CX 01 MI allow the transmission of up to 18 Gbit/s, including video, audio and Ethernet.
MIXO MODULAR INSERTS:
Data and PoE device connection
Industrial control systems, including sensors, controllers, and meters, can be powered using a single RJ45 connector by the PoE (Power over Ethernet) protocol as standardized by the IEEE 802.3. The angular CJZA 8 IA4 housing avoids any undue connector damage thanks to its low horizontal installation profile.
ENCLOSURE AND COUPLER:
PICK AND PLACE ROBOT
Base-plate connectors for pick and place robots are often subject to challenges posed by demanding industrial environments, with dust, vibrations, and electromagnetic interferences. ILME enclosures offer a high IP rating, EMC shielding, and vibration-proof features to counter these specific installation requirements.
Compact combined connection
The MIXO modular system allows to combine different connection interfaces, reducing the connector’s footprint using both high-current and shielded modules for power and signals applications.
