Banner Engineering’s SureCross DXER9 ethernet data radio is an industrial-grade, long-range 900 MHz radio used to create point-to-multipoint configurations of wireless ethernet networks with up to 16 subscriber units. The DXER9 is designed for industrial applications and will perform reliably in applications that are too noisy or too far away for standard Wi-Fi-based systems.
The Wolverine ethernet extender series from Westermo has been enhanced with Class 1, Division 2 approval. This allows the Wolverine series to be installed in hazardous or potentially explosive environments containing flammable vapours and gases.
MooreHawke and Pepperl+Fuchs are the first FOUNDATION fieldbus device coupler suppliers to pass the FOUNDATION fieldbus H1 registration process.
The ZigSense line of wireless sensors utilises ZigBee mesh network technology as its core communications channel. Australian designed and made, ZigSense wireless nodes establish a self-healing network of spatially distributed sensors that cooperatively monitor physical and environmental conditions. Data can be transferred to standard SCADA, telemetry, PLC and HMI stations via a ZigSense communications gateway.
Rockwell Automation has introduced an expanded range of industrial-grade ethernet physical media components. Specially engineered for high performance in harsh industrial environments, the expanded ethernet component range includes four- and two-pair cable varieties with RJ45 and/or M12 connectors, spools of cable, as well as a variety of accessories.
The CP-602E-I, CP-602U-I and CB-602I are 2-port CAN interface boards designed to provide host computers with CAN ports through the PCI Express, Universal PCI, or PC/104 interfaces. In addition to supporting reliable communications, these boards come with 2 kV isolation protection to shield host computers from potentially damaging electrical spikes. All three models support a wide operating temperature range from -40 to 85 °C, making them suitable for use in critical applications.
Set up in 1963, Victorian-based Wang Components was initially involved in the water pumping and irrigation business before moving into the manufacture of quality clamps and couplings. Over the past few years, the company was able to use the features of Profibus to implement a creative automation plan.
Rockwell Automation has upgraded its Allen-Bradley Stratix 8000 modular managed industrial ethernet switch line with features that include the implementation of Resilient Ethernet Protocol (REP), Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) per port and the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) Sync Time Protocol.
Moxa has launched the ioLogik E1200 series of remote ethernet I/Os. The ioLogik E1200 series products come with two embedded ethernet switch ports to enable a daisy-chain topology - the easiest way to add more ethernet devices into a network or to connect each ioLogik in series to the next.
