Modlink MSDD = Easy Access

The front panel interfaces Modlink MSDD from Murrelektronik provide uncomplicated and safe access to the control unit without having to open the cabinet door. A variety of country-specific sockets and data connectors provide high flexibility; comprehensive approvals allow a worldwide application. Software of control units often have to be adapted during operation. To do this, they have to be connected to laptops or diagnostic devices. This is often only possible with the cabinet door open which in turn costs time and money. If changes have to be made during operation, service technicians sometimes come up with a makeshift solution to access the control unit. This temporary wiring can be prone to errors and…

New White Paper: Efficient redundancy for power supplies

Puls engineers worked out a genius MOSFET decoupling solution for redundancy modules. It secures a reliable system availability in case of short-circuit and highest efficiency. The White Paper tells you more about ten criteria that are essential for optimal redundant systems. Standard epitaxial or Schottky diodes can not fulfil all of these criteria - e.g. the need for minimal no-load losses.You will also learn more about the parallel-use mode and the fascinating „hot swapping“ technology that enables you to replace a power supply or a redundancy module while the system is running. Efficient redundancy Reliable system availability in case of short-circuitEfficient redundancy for power supplies Redundancy modules guarantee reliable system availability, even if a…

DIN-RAILway power supplies – a new standard in the railway sector

Proven Industry Technology on Rails For those of you who have sat waiting on a train due to technical problems, you know only too well that more reliable technology on the railway should be the highest priority. A modern train composition is technically highly complex and nothing moves without a reliable power supply. A DIN-RAILway power supply is the answer from Puls for a more robust and reliable DIN-Rail power supply on the railway. Of course, there have been specialised power supplies for the railway for many years. The demands are high and in several areas: Failures cannot occur, even with high mechanical shock in an even broader temperature range. In general, fans…

IODD on Board

Now you can set up machines and systems with IO-Link devices even faster. Murrelektronik is the first manufacturer to offer "IODD on board" which allows you to “Plug & Play” when integrating IO-Link devices. An IODD (IO Device Description) file describes sensors and valves. It contains information about the device’s identity, parameters, process data, diagnosis data, communication properties and other details. Murrelektronik's new MVK Metal and Impact67 fieldbus modules have IODD files (for participating manufacturers IO-Link devices) integrated into the GSD file. If those devices - like IO-Link sensors or valve clusters - are included in an installation, this database is available and can be quickly integrated.  Prior to this each new IO-Link master…
