Westermo has released a high-speed industrial ethernet extender. The DDW-120 utilises SHDSL transmission technology, allowing existing twisted pair cables to be used to establish a high-speed remote connection between two ethernet networks. With transfer rates up to 5.7 Mbps and an operating distance of up to 15 km at lower data rates, this is an easy-to-install alternative to fibre-optic or radio systems when linking remote ethernet networks.
Turck has expanded its line of BL20 economy modules with the release of a DeviceNet gateway. This addition augments Turck’s current PROFIBUS-DP and CANopen gateways for the BL20 economy system.
