Cut-to-Length Food and Beverage Rated Control Cable from AutomationDirect

MC Cut to Length Food and Beverage Rated Control Cable from Automationdirect 1 400x275

August 23, 2022

AutomationDirect has added LUTZE SILFLEX® FBP control cables, specifically designed to meet all UL and FDA requirements for cabling used in Food and Beverage facilities. The patent-pending food-safe design of these cables has been evaluated by third-party tester Ecolab for resistance to commonly used cleaning agents and reduction of contamination risk.

LUTZE SILFLEX® cables are available in sizes ranging from 20AWG to 12AWG and in shielded and unshielded versions. The Phthalate-free jacket is resistant to oils and fats that are common to food processing, and reduced cable diameters allow for easy routing and installation in conduit. Cables may be run without conduit in some areas due to the external wiring approval, washdown certification, and food-contact rating.

SILFLEX® FBP control cables are made in the USA, can be ordered cut to length in 1-foot increments with a 20 ft. minimum, and start at $0.89/ft (A6012004-1) with free shipping on orders over $49.00.

Access Management for Your Plant and Machinery

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
