HIMA Paul Hildebrandt GmbH has signed a global framework agreement with Mannheim-based automation equipment manufacturer Pepperl+Fuchs GmbH, expanding their successful cooperation on HIMax safety controllers.
The manufacturing industry is on the brink of the next industrial revolution, Industry 4.0, which will transform systems architecture, connectivity and sensors as we know them. This revolution will lead to the development of ‘smart factories’. Smart factories of the future are going to need smart sensors and smart connectivity solutions for these smart sensors. IO-Link will be a fundamental component of it all.
With one or two discrete signals per port, the 6-port junction box is capable of providing up to 12 discrete signals, ensuring reliable connectivity for multiple devices.
The Han PushPull Model 14 connector is designed for Profinet cabling with protection category IP65/67 to IEC 61076-3-117. A robust metal housing with angled cable outlet upwards and downwards offers benefits for cabling in restricted environments.
Weidmüller has expanded its range of Profibus connectivity products with the release of shielded metal Profibus DP connectors that are suitable for use in water, wastewater and general factory automation environments.
Harting’s har-speed M12 connectors are designed to meet the requirements of Cat. 6A and are intended for applications with high bandwidth requirements in machine and plant engineering where rapid and safe data transmission beyond Cat. 5 are increasingly called for.
The Phoenix Contact Group and the Harting Technology Group have jointly developed a new generation of M12 connectors for maximum data rates, known as the M12-Cat6A.
The 381 series Link hermaphroditic connectors and series 382 Link PCB connectors for fieldbus applications from 3M can be used in CC-Link/LT industrial automation field network applications.
The Han-Modular series is a versatile, open connector system. Users can configure their own connectors which match the needs of their particular application.
Harting has extended the Han connector product range. The integration of the standard LC fibre-optic connectors, in single mode and multi-mode, meets the demands set by harsh outdoor environments.
Users can securely plug the connector needed directly into machinery with very little effort - and without a single tool, according to Weidmüller. To connect simply insert the cable, press together and that's it.
