Chinese company Dongfang Steam Turbine Works (DSTW) was working on a wind farm project involving 66 1.5 MW wind turbines in Heilongjiang, China, and needed to establish a reliable SCADA system to help the staff remotely monitor on-site equipment and operations.
The ORing IGPS-7084GP is a fully managed gigabit redundant ring PoE ethernet switch with eight 10/100/1000BaseTx ports, PoE (PSE) function and four 1000BaseX SFP ports. With support for Ethernet Redundancy protocol, the O-Ring (recovery time \<20 ms over 250 units of connection) and MSTP/RSTP/STP (IEEE 802.1s/w/D), the IGS-7084GP can protect mission-critical applications from network interruptions or temporary malfunctions.
Banner Engineering has introduced a compact metal housing rated for Class I, Division 1 hazardous locations for its intrinsically safe DX99 wireless node product line. A DX99 node provides power to sensors directly within a hazardous area, with an integrated battery power supply that produces an intrinsically safe (IS) power source for the radio transceiver and external third-party sensors. Equipped with its metal housing, the DX99 node is more versatile while maintaining its single chamber design - placing the battery, wiring terminal and radio together for easy mounting and connection to sensors.
The Fieldbus Foundation has announced it has registered the first FOUNDATION Fieldbus devices incorporating advanced field diagnostics technology.
Moxa has launched three high-power IEEE 802.3af/at PoE industrial ethernet switches aimed at power-hungry PoE-enabled devices such as PTZ cameras and long-distance wireless access points. The three models, the EDS-P506A-4PoE, EDS-P206A-4PoE and INJ-24, are designed to satisfy the demands of high-power devices by providing up to 30 W of power, double the amount in the existing IEEE 802.3af PoE standard.
The Westermo Falcon industrial broadband router with integrated ethernet routing switch is designed to provide two-way, high-speed secure communication between remote sites enabling economical and reliable connection to equipment such as SCADA, PLCs, RTUs and I/O devices.
