Decentralized Automation Solutions

Advanced electrical installation concepts connect all sensors and actuators in machines or systems to the controller or cloud solution in the most economical way. The key to the best possible electrical installation is to consider all phases of the machine or system’s lifecycle. The manufacturers of machines and systems should also benefit from the chosen electrical installation concept, as should the future operators. The focus is on low "total cost of ownership" and a "life cycle" that is profitable for all parties involved. How do manufacturers benefit? Standardization and simplification of planning and programming processesConsiderable simplification of wiringReduction of the…

RFID Washdown

The Washdown family of full-metal, low-frequency components has been designed for demanding wash-in-place applications within the food, pharmaceutical and other industries. Passive tags from this family offer the highest mechanical and chemical resistance, being fully sealed, laser welded and made of food-grade stainless steel (V4A / AISI 316L). As a result, they are highly corrosion-proof, saltwater resistant and withstand aggressive solvents. With an enclosure rating of IP68 & IP69K, Washdown components resist high-pressure cleaning and function reliably in water. They have also been optimized for a wide operating temperature range: -40 to +125°C (-40 to +257°F). If the ContriNET protocol is used, LF RWMs…

Full Inox Chip-Immune inductive sensors

New inductive sensors for metal machining processes Contrinex announces a new series of Chip-Immune sensors with NPN polarity to complement the existing range of PNP types. As a result, this sensor family is ready not only for metal-machining systems with positive logic (sink current; PNP) but also those with negative logic (source current; NPN). Machines for turning, milling, drilling or grinding metal will inevitably generate abrasion debris. For inductive sensors, which by their nature detect metal objects, this debris presents a difficult challenge. When sensors are covered with lubricant containing metal chips, there is a risk that they will supply…

The first DIN rail power supplywith an integrated IO-Link port

The power supply is placed at a central nodal point in the system. There is more than just current flowing. A power supply records a significant amount of real-time information that is of particular interest to the operating firm as well as the system manufacturer. This data can help increase system availability and reduce maintenance and operating costs. This means the power supply has the potential – in parallel with its function as a converter – to also act as a sensor and therefore make a significant contribution to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The DIMENSION QT40.241-B2 sees PULS…
