Molex Incorporated announces it will showcase a wide range of its Brad®
connectivity and communications solutions and Woodhead® electrical products at
Automation Fair 2012 in Philadelphia, PA, November 7-8, Molex booth 1417.

“As a Rockwell Automation Encompass global partner, Molex provides
connectivity solutions and other critical components that complement Rockwell
installations,” said George Kairys, product manager, Molex. “Our Brad and
Woodhead products are designed for high performance and reliability in diverse
industrial applications and environments. They offer a cost-saving approach to
enhancing machine control, process visibility and automation across plant
floor and remote networks.”

Brad connectivity solutions from Molex at Automation Fair 2012 include:

  *Brad SST™ IP67 Remote Communication Module for PROFIBUS -  connectivity is
    a powerful PB3 remote module designed to execute high-speed PROFIBUS DP
    data exchange with Rockwell’s Logix Controllers. Its harsh duty design and
    remote capabilities allow the module to be installed on machines, in
    production cells, or in the field where Ethernet connectivity allows the
    module to be easily managed remotely. The IP67 remote module is well
    suited for use in a wide range of manufacturing and processing plants.
  *Brad SST Communication Modules for Rockwell Automation PAC /PLC
    controllers are available for AS-i, PROFIBUS*, MODBUS†, MODBUS/TCP and
    Siemens Industrial Ethernet protocols. Jumper-free technology, 100%
    software configurable, and performance-leading throughput separate these
    modules from the competition. Integration with Rockwell’s RSLogix‡ 5000
    software and Add-On Profiles allows users to quickly define devices and
    access their data using Rockwell Automation’s Integrated Architecture‡.
  *Updated Brad® SST™ eNetMeter™ User Sample Code that allows any
    ControlLogix, CompactLogix, SoftLogix and GuardLogix‡ controllers more
    flexibility to interface and to retrieve real-time DeviceNet§ diagnostic
    data from any DeviceNet network.

Woodhead products from Molex at Automation Fair 2012 include:

  *Watertite® Wet-Location Wiring Devices for extremely rough and wet
    environments, meet NEMA type 4, 4X, 6, 6P, IP65, IP66 and IP67. Products
    include closure caps, compression-type cord grips, and single, duplex
    receptacles. The wiring devices withstand high-pressure hose-downs up to
    1,000 PSI, making them ideal for use in processing and water treatment
  *Solderless Terminals  in a wide variety of wire sizes and materials,
    including low-halogen, are offered to fit virtually every application.
    Woodhead solderless products include: ring and spade terminals, terminal
    blocks and heat-sealable terminals, as well as magnet wire connectors,
    quick disconnects, wire pins, battery cable lugs and wire management
  *Indoor and Outdoor Support Grips  evenly distribute the weight of sloping
    runs of cabling, rods, tubing and hoses to prevent damage. Most standard
    closed-mesh grips are woven from corrosion-resistant tinned bronze wire
    and many grips can be upgraded to stainless steel wire for applications
    requiring higher corrosion resistance.
  *Woodhead® Hand Lamps  are rugged, portable lighting products designed for
    high performance and long service life in industrial settings. Depending
    on the environment and application, users can select cost-effective task
    lighting for hazardous duty, wet locations, general industrial, commercial
    and light duty workspaces.
  *Aero-Motive® Standard Duty Cord Reels  in swing- or rigid-mount versions,
    are used in dry indoor applications to keep cords of power supply,
    lighting and other mobile equipment safely out of the way. The
    ruggedly-built reels enhance worker safety and deliver long service life
    and ease of maintenance.
  *Woodhead® Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) Products provide worker
    protection and power cord safety in commercial and industrial
    applications. Product options include manual or automatic reset,
    field-serviceable or flying lead ends, as well as inline, right angle or
    outlet boxes.
