ORing-Networking has upgraded the IDS-5000 series industrial device servers. The devices can be used to connect RS232/422/485 serial devices, such as PLCs, sensors, card readers, meters, motors and drives in industrial environments.
The Hirschmann Mach 1000 substation switches have been designed to handle demanding electrical power generation and distribution applications. The switches are suitable for new installations and retrofit of existing substations where ambient temperatures can be extremely high. They are also suitable for transportation, industrial automation and military applications.
Turck’s JBBS junction bricks for AS-interface networks are now FM approved for Class I, Division 2, Groups A, B, C and D hazardous locations. JBBS junction bricks simplify the connection of multiple field devices and can be mounted directly on the machine in hazardous environments, with no enclosure required.
The IAP-320 from ORing is a reliable IEEE802.11 a/b/g WLAN access point with two LAN ports. It supports 802.1x and MAC filters for security control. The devices can be configured to operate in AP/bridge/repeater/AP-client mode easily. Users are able to configure the series using a web interface via the LAN port or WLAN interface. The series provides dual ethernet ports in switch mode, so that users can use daisy chain to reduce the usage of ethernet switch ports. In addition, the series also provides an IEEE802.3af-compliant PoE PD feature on one of the ethernet ports, with up to 1 kV voltage isolation.
ORing has released the Thunder series, a range of gigabit managed ethernet switches, including the Rail (DIN rail) series IGS-7084GCP; the Rack (rackmount) series RGS-7244GP, RGS-7168GCP; and the PoE series RGPS-7244GP, IGPS-7084GP.
The IES-3073GC from ORing is a managed redundant ring ethernet switch equipped with seven 10/100baseTx ethernet ports and three Gigabit combo ports.
By using the right signal interface instruments, in the right ways, potential problems can be easily avoided, well before they boil over.
Vegascan 693 is a universal signal conditioning instrument for level and process pressure measurements. Besides providing signal connections for up to 15 HART sensors, it enables simple set up and commissioning of the sensors from the switch room.
HMS has extended the functionality of its 1 SI CANopen module for the Simatic ET200S I/O system with the integration of the CAN 2.0A protocol. In addition to the standard CANopen protocol, the HMS 1 SI CANopen module can also be used for transmission/ reception of any CAN 2.0A frame regardless of the overlaying CAN application protocol. The extended functionality maximises usability and flexibility of the CAN gateway. Typical applications include all kinds of machines and automation systems where CAN- or CANopen-enabled devices are used in combination with Siemens PLCs.
Latest test kit has been updated to test for new, required field diagnostics capabilities.
By using the right signal interface instruments, in the right ways, potential problems can be easily avoided well before they boil over.
The Fieldbus Foundation has announced that an updated version of its FOUNDATION Fieldbus technical specification is now available.
The Anybus Communicator from HMS now provides easy fieldbus and industrial ethernet connectivity for industrial devices that have a Rockwell Automation/Allen Bradley DF1 protocol interface. Almost any DF1 supported device can now be connected to all major industrial networks and PLC systems.
If you manage or operate an industrial automation network, then network management is something that you are already doing. Wouldn't it be ideal to automate these management tasks with software, in order to improve the efficiency of the process?
