Reliable condition

Reliable condition monitoring with cabinet guards The IM12-CCM cabinet guard detects incorrectly closed doors as well as the exceeding of moisture and temperature limits. It also detects unauthorized access to switch cabinets. The slim 12.5 mm DIN-rail device can also be installed easily in existing switch cabinets. The IM12-CCM features an internal data logger with time stamp and stores data for up to two years. This enables users to also detect creeping changes over long periods and rectify the cause. An interface enables two cabinet guards to be operated in master-slave mode in order to monitor correct door closing and the other limit values simultaneously at two points in the control cabinet. The master processes the data of the slave and sends a signal to the controller. The standard IM12-CCM comes with two switch contacts and an IO-Link interface. It is the second cabinet guard in the Turck portfolio. Cable glands rethought With the introduction of the Brace cable protection system and the cable entry system Conmaxx in the last year Wiska now offers its customers all cable entry solutions from its own production, including the proven cable gland range. The cable gland Marathon (foto) convinces with its new design and elevated strain relief according to category B (EN 62444). This has been realized by separating the sealing from the strain relief function. The new MultiClixx combines the advantages of existing grommets by Wiska: Customers can insert up to four cables via the soft membrane component at a minimum of time. Strain relief is accomplished by the intelligent grommet construction. Wiska manufactures electrical equipment, lighting products and CCTV camera surveillance systems for shipbuilding and diverse industries. Innovative u-remote modules IP20 / IP67 for IO-Link PRODUCT NEWS background: fotolia Weidmüller offers innovative u-remote modules in the IP20 and IP67 degree of protection for IO-Link. The company is providing comprehensive support for the advantages of IO-Link with u-remote, the flexible I/O system for streamlined planning and quick commissioning. Whether used as a control cabinet system, in mixed applications in the IP20 and IP67 degrees of protection or placed directly in the field for signal connection purposes, u-remote gives the user all the freedoms of a flexible I/O architecture and offers the advantages of a consistent overall system. The web server integrated in u-remote enables convenient parameterisation and quick plant servicing without any need for additional software. For IO-Link, Weidmüller is offering a master module in the IP20 and IP67 degrees of protection. IO-Link is a standardised IO technology (IEC 61131-9) for communication with sensors and actuators.

Update package for vision sensor family The 2017 update offers significant functional upgrades for all product versions of SensoPart’s Visor vision sensors – Visor Object, Visor Color, Visor Code Reader, Visor Solar and Visor Allround. The Visor offers several tracking methods: contour-based position tracking and edge-based position tracking (detects objects by up to approx 30 °). The functional scope of the contour and Blob detectors has been extended with Visor Object. There are three significant new functions for the Visor Code Reader: “Autotune”, “Multitrigger” and the use of OCR to read texts on rotated objects. Look at the Visor Color vision sensor, the user can now define virtual color filters, which highlight the relevant area of the picture and mask unwanted sections. The Visor Allround vision sensor benefits from the complete range of new features, combining all the functions of the object sensor, code reader and color sensor in one. The 2017 software update is now available for download on the SensoPart website. Ethernet-IO-modules with multiprotocol functionality The multiprotocol feature permits standardization in the machine where different module types were previously required. A rotary switch makes it possible to switch between the Profinet, EtherNet/IP, and EtherCAT protocols. The integrated web server facilitates downloads and parameterization, and also provides a diagnostics indicator. IO-Link-compatible sensors and actuators can be connected, configured, and parameterized using the integrated 8-way IO-Link master. Key benefits of this solution include transparent diagnosis and the ease with which devices can be replaced thanks to the redundant data storage. Some simple programming work is all that is needed for the modules to perform distributed functions and to take the load off the central control panel, or replace this completely. Mass flow controllers for common ethernet protocols Bürkert presents its new generation of high-precision mass flow meters (MFM) and controllers (MFC) for gases. These devices feature an integrated Industrial Ethernet switch and support all standard Industrial Ethernet protocols. Users can choose between PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT or Modbus TCP. This enables OEMs in particular to use a single product in solutions for customers with different control systems. This allows the devices to be flexibly integrated in existing systems. The two versions (Type 8741 and 8745) cover a broad measurement and control range. They are used at high and low pressures as well as for low and high flow rates. Typical applications for mass flow meters and controllers are in the areas of metal, glass or ceramic processing, coating technology or in the production of foams in the food and plastics industries.
