Allen Bradley 100-D Contactors Are Nearing End of Life!

Allen Bradley's popular 100-D line of contactors is nearing end of life.  Beginning on March 31, 2019, the 100-D will no longer be available. The replacement 100-E contactors provide a narrower panel footprint, reduced weight, lower coil power consumption and simplified selection.

Allen Bradley Conversion: 855T to 856T 70mm Control Tower™ Signaling System

Thanks to the latest advances in LED technology, the expectations of industrial signaling products have evolved and become more demanding. 

While the Bulletin 855T has been a valuable part of Allen Bradley's Control Tower signaling portfolio for more than 20 years, this product will no longer be available for sale after  July 1, 2019 and consequently, it is the time to migrate to the new 856T Control Tower 70mm tower light system.

The new 856T Control Tower signaling system features a proven, modular construction design similar to the 855T but incorporates brighter LED illumination and a broad offering of sound technologies all in a 70mm diameter housing. This new design allows the 856T to meet the widest range of signaling applications with a reduced number of components (SKUs) without compromising functionality and flexibility.

New Allen Bradley 1492-P Terminal Blocks 

Thomas Leja, Revere's Industrial Control Product Specialist, introduces the new  Allen Bradley 1492-P Push-in Terminal Blocks, which improve wiring efficiency and connection reliability. They are available in a wide range of IEC block types that include innovative control power distribution blocks, as well as two-, three- and four-circuit sensor blocks.

1492 P Terminal Blocks

Jeff Genac, Revere's Industrial Control Specialist, goes into a deeper dive on the new 1492-P Terminal Blocks.  Specifically, explaining how the new style uses a new angular clamping method that will hold a wider range of wires more securely than either of the other terminal block styles. This increases the wire range capabilities of the blocks to make selection and installation easier.

1492-J4 (Screw) - Compatible with 22-10 AWG wire
1492-L4 (Spring) - Compatible with 26-10 AWG wire
1492-P4 (Push-in) - Compatible with 28-10 AWG wire
