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.
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.
The Moxa AWK-5222 is a rugged, IEEE 802.11 a/b/g-compliant, 3-in-1 industrial wireless AP/bridge/client and is designed to offer a wide variety of wireless connection configurations and solutions to help create robust wireless connections for critical industrial applications.
The Scalance X308-2M is an industrial-grade, compact gigabit ethernet switch featuring IT functions in addition to its industry functions. The modular, fanless design makes the unit flexible for use in many industrial applications. There are two slots for media modules allowing for various types of fibre-optic ports to be connected.
Harting Technology has developed prototypes of what it calls Fast Track Switching. Fully compatible with standard ethernet, the Fast Track Switch guarantees deterministic data transmission at the field level. This makes it possible to meet high real-time requirements in automation without changing the standard ethernet.
Ethernet Direct's Husky HWE-800 is a cost-effective, industrially hardened web-managed industrial ethernet switch, specifically designed to operate reliably in electrically harsh, hazardous and demanding environments.
