EPIC® rectangular connectors ensure strong, reliable electrical connections while providing termination protection against dirty, wet, industrial environments. The EPIC® ULTRA housing provides enhanced corrosion protection and shielding from electrical noise (EMC). Rectangular connectors are available in a wide variety of configurations for a flexible power, control, or data solution with industrial equipment and factory floor automation systems. Environmentally Protected Industrial Connectors are the ultimate Nema 4 and 12 multi-pin connections for all power and control applications where reliability and durability are essential. The connectors allow for the quick connect/ disconnect of power and signal lines between machinery. These metal or plastic housings are available either as top or side entry hoods and panel mount or surface mount bases with PG, Metric, or NPT cable openings. Available connector variations include: screw, crimp, or spring cage clamp terminated connectors from 2 to 280 contacts, UL & CSA approved up to 80 Amps, 1000 Volts. Industries serviced include material handling, plastics, industrial controls, automotive and machine tool
• Intermateable and compatible with most equivalent DIN type rectangular connectors
• Custom housing modifications, harness assemblies, and a comprehensive offering of cable and accessory products.
• EPIC® Modular series offers multiple standard components for customizable connector construction

Cable Designs To Meet Wind Turbine Industry Standards
Heres an update on the current state of standards for wind turbines in North America, as well as a more in-depth look at the factors design engineers should consider when selecting cabling for wind turbine applications. http://landing.lappusa.com/windwp_DN
Understand Connector Selection To Avoid Downtime
Power and signal disruptions have many mechanical and electrical causes, everything from forklift accidents to overcurrent conditions. With all the mission-critical electrical connections in a modern plant, downtime from damaged electrical connections is a matter of when not if. http://landing.lappusa.com/connectorizationWP_DN
NFPA 79: Electrical Standard For Industrial Machinery
nFPa-79 is the section of the national Electrical Code (nEC) that focuses on electrical wiring standards used with industrial machinery. nFPa-79 applies to the electrical equipment used within a wide variety of machines and groups of machines working together in a coordinated manner. Some examples of industrial machinery include machine tools, injection molding machines, woodworking equipment, assembling machinery, material handling machinery and inspection and testing machines. nFPa-79 encompasses all of the machines electrical and electronic elements operating at 600V or less. http://landing.lappusa.com/NFPA79WP_DN
CONNECTORS LOWER WIRING COSTS
If you design or build industrial machines, you probably know all about hardwiring. It remains the most common way to bring power and signal to the machine because it offers a perceived savings in installation costs. But the cost savings are really just a mirage once you factor in the full range of wiring costs. The assumption that hardwiring will minimize wire installation costs turns out to be wrong. Download our white paper to understand the differences between hardwiring and connectorization.
HIGH-ACCELERATION SERVO MOTORS CREATE CABLING CHALLENGES
In automated production machines, faster acceleration and deceleration of motion axes can lead to productivity gains. It’s no wonder that machine builders have started to adopt new low inertia servo motors that offer maximum accelerations up to 5g, compared to less than 3g for conventional servo motors. So what does acceleration have to do with cable? Experience shows 5g represents a tipping point for servo cables. When subject to accelerations of 5g or greater, traditional servo cables can experience forces high enough to shorten their working life dramatically. And keep in mind that rapid deceleration can be just as punishing on the cable as rapid accelerations.
