The ioLogik W5340-HSPA is equipped with a cellular interface that supports both five band UMTS/HSPA+ and quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE functionality.
Phoenix Contact has launched a protection device for SHDSL systems designed to meet the special requirements of SHDSL data transmission.
The Red Lion Data Station Plus ZR Series offers protocol conversion, data logging and remote machine access at processing speeds six times faster than previous versions.
Schneider Electric has expanded its ConneXium network and security product with the addition of EtherNet/IP Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) to the ConneXium Tofino Firewall.
The Acromag TT230 and TT330 series isolated signal conditioners feature high-density mounting on DIN rails, supporting RTD/resistance and potentiometer/thermistor input signals.
The Rifline complete industrial relay system has now received CSA certification and has been approved as a UL-compatible component.
The RAD-PT100-4-IFS PT100 expansion module facilitates the transmission of up to four PT100 signals within the Radioline wireless system, and can be used to measure temperatures ranging from -50 to +250°C.
Secomea's centrally managed authentication via a cloud service means that a secure connection can be made between authorised users and devices, without worrying about IP addresses, VPN protocols, TCP ports or encryption settings.
RS485 and ethernet are two commonly adopted communication interfaces used in data acquisition and control systems. Ethernet I/O devices are generally considered more sophisticated, RS485 I/O devices may be sufficient for budget-conscious system integrators. Nonetheless, there are still ways device manufacturers can improve on the lasting legacy of RS485 data acquisition devices.
The Artila Electronics RIO-2010 web-based remote I/O control module is designed for simple, stable performance, and supports Modbus protocols.
Turck has expanded its BL20 I/O system with a gateway for serial Modbus communication, supporting both Modbus RTU as well as the ASCII protocol over RS485 and RS232.
Protection of traffic using OPC Classic protocol is almost impossible with traditional firewall rule sets, so the OPC Enforcer takes a different approach, dynamically opening only the TCP ports required for each allowed connection.
The Secomea remote access system starter pack includes everything necessary to provide a remote connection to a PLC, HMI or any programmable device, and is typically operational in 15 minutes.
The Axioline F family of I/O products, designed for installation in control cabinets, is being expanded further with additional I/O components and function modules, and the devices can now be operated on additional key networks. Devices for connecting to EtherCAT and Modbus/TCP (UDP) networks now supplement the bus couplers for Profinet and Sercos 3. An additional bus coupler also enables connection to the Profibus fieldbus system.
The BusWorks XT Series multichannel discrete contact sensor and relay output modules offer a safe, isolated interface between high-energy field devices and sensitive control system I/O modules.
