Since 1975 Shorrock Automation has specialised in Process Control and Factory Automation. Shorrock Automation is a leading supplier of Industrial Networking Systems, Automation Systems and Services for the Process Industries, as well as Control Systems for General Industries.

WAGO's 855 Series Plug-In Current Transformers are equipped with screwless connection technology and are available for various primary currents up to 1 000 A.

The 855 Series Plug-In Current Transformers are UL recognised components. Suitable for 230 V, 400 V and 690 V low voltage applications, their maximum operating voltage is 1.2 kV. The 855 Series units transform rated primary currents into electrically isolated secondary currents up to 1 A with a measuring accuracy of one percent (accuracy class 1). They can be used in operating temperatures ranging from -5°C to +50°C and may be permanently loaded with up to 120 % of the nominal current.

CAGE CLAMP connection technology provides screwless termination of conductors ranging from 0.08 to 4 mm2 (AWG 28–12). Conductors can be terminated from both the front side and the rear side of the transformers. The 855 Series plastic housing is extremely robust and can be mounted in four different ways: on round cables, on copper current bars, on mounting plates, and  depending on the version, on carrier rails. Plug-in current transformers are well-suited to measuring and processing high currents. Therefore, they are ideal for energy data acquisition via WAGO's 3-Phase Power Measurement Modules (750 Series) or JUMPFLEX Transducers (857 Series).

WAGO's Pilot-Boxes control and monitor the entire charging process, permitting communication

between electric vehicles (EVs) and their power supplies.

WAGO's 879-101 and 879-111 Pilot-Boxes are control units for Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE). They have been developed as integral components for distribution boxes, wall boxes or charging stations. Both Pilot-Boxes meet the following functional requirements for charging mode 3 according to IEC 61851 and VDE-AR-E 2623-2-2: automatic selection of charging power rate; continuous ground conductor contact monitoring; system activation/deactivation; and checking for proper EV connection.

In addition, the Pilot-Boxes control both maximum charging current and ventilation requirements during charging, while locking/unlocking the charging plug. In the event of a power failure, an integrated emergency release immediately unlocks the plug.

The 879-101 Pilot-Box supports connection ‘Case B’ and is designed for installation in EVSE featuring a socket outlet for EV charging via the detachable cable. The 879-111 Pilot-Box supports connection ‘Case C’ and is used in EVSE carrying a permanently attached charging cable instead of a socket outlet. Both control units are designed without a billing system for standard applications in private EVSE equipment. Furthermore, Pilot-Boxes equipped with a control logic such as a PLC, feature additional charging functions, simplifying applications at public locations.

Resource conservation will dominate the 2013 ISH trade fair held during March 2013 in Frankfurt, and WAGO plans to be a leading exhibitor. On more than 150 m2, WAGO will present new building automation and HVAC solutions. The focus will not only be on electrical interconnect and automation products, but also on their individual application possibilities. “We regard ourselves as a provider of comprehensive integrated solutions and place an even greater emphasis on our consulting expertise — not figuratively, but literally. A consulting island can be found right in the middle of our booth, allowing us to develop tailor-made solutions together with our visitors,” states Karl-Heinz Sanders, Building Automation Market Manager.

This user-first focus is also reflected in production innovations: WAGO's main automation solutions are dedicated to energy efficient systems — without neglecting user-friendly requirements. For example, HVAC macros prove that these two are not mutually exclusive. They provide specialists with ready-to-use solutions allowing them to perform a wide variety of applications at the push of a button. Time-consuming programming is no longer necessary, since individual adjustments are performed exclusively via parameter settings. WAGO's flexROOM distribution boxes work on the same principle. In new buildings, and for retrofitting commercial and public buildings with modern technology, they help minimise building automation costs for planners, installers and end users.

EBDHS is an increased performance PIR presence detector from CP Electronics, developed for lighting control in areas with demanding spaces and increased mounting heights. It is responsive to the constant shift of people’s lighting needs by being programmable and adjustable to produce an exceptionally accurate detection beam. 

With a mounting height of up to 20 m, the presence detector has a unique lens technology allowing high sensitivity within the detection range.  It has a detachable sensor head and a switched or dimming (analogue, DSI, DALI) options. 

Ideal for high bay applications, the presence detector’s minimum dimmed level provides low level light output for health and safety requirements. Additional features include  adjustable masking shields to tailor detection zones,  a burn-in mode for fluorescent tubes, and a verify mode that reduces false triggering by ensuring detection from more than one of the internal sensors. 

All functionality is fully programmable using either CP Electronics’ UHS5 or UNLCDHS handsets.

WAGO’s 2060 Series allows LED modules to be conventionally wired. The newly developed 2060 Series connecting link simplifies in-line assembly of LED modules. It enables users to easily interconnect several modules on one LED string, saving a substantial amount of installation time and money. The new connecting links are compatible with all 2060 Series terminal blocks. 

Also supporting 2060 Series' versatility is a 2-pole terminal block with 8 mm pin spacing. The new SMD terminal block is ideal for applications with higher rated voltages up to 630 V/ 6 kV/2 (Overvoltage Category III). 

The 2060 Series provides great convenience in a compact design. Pushbutton actuation simplifies conductor termination, and just 4.5 mm tall,  the 2060 Series is perfectly suited for both LED and industrial applications. The 2060 Series terminal blocks are available in 1-, 2- and 3-pole versions. Thanks to the new connecting link, any number of poles can be used with these terminal blocks as they can be connected in-line, while maintaining pin spacing.

WAGO's new Linect connector is designed for the external connection of standard lighting installations. The Linect 770-6229 connector offers all the benefits of a pluggable lighting connector. It connects to standard electrical building installations and snaps onto the Linect light from the outside. This makes light replacement a ‘snap’ for maintenance or retrofits, while requiring no electrical circuit interruption. The 3-pole Linect connector is protected against mismating and is equipped with CAGE CLAMP®S connection technology. It is designed for any conductor type (solid, stranded and fine-stranded) up to 2.5mm²/AWG 14 and a maximum nominal current of 24 A.

In addition to designers, electricians and wholesalers, light manufacturers will also benefit from the new Linect connector. Lights no longer need to be opened or specially prepared by the manufacturer for connection from the outside using special elements.
