The HIMax safety system is designed for maximum fault tolerance and minimal maintenance downtime. All maintenance, expansion and modification work of the system can always be performed online during process operation — without cutting back on safety. This includes the execution of proof test, a mandatory requirement of IEC/AS 61508/11.
The Westermo DDW-220 is designed to extend ethernet networks over existing copper cables in point-to-point or line sharing applications. Point-to-point transmission distances of up to 10 km can be achieved with data rates of 5.7 Mbps possible over shorter distances on a single copper pair.
Tenrod’s large LED video screens are suitable for both indoor and outdoor displays. They can be used for a great variety of applications, such as information boards, advertisements, scoreboards, sports broadcasts and promotional messages at show venues, stadiums, shopping malls, outdoor venues or stage shows.
The Mavilor MA series of AC servomotors utilises an air gap design with small diameter and short length, which has a short mechanical time constant and extremely short electrical constant that provides high peak torque at high speed, making them suitable for control operations.
The functionality of the Simatic WinCC SCADA system has been expanded with the release of version 7.0, so that it now offers operation in accordance with Windows Vista, easy language switching, analysis functions and an integrated MS SQL Server archive historian database as standard. In the core packages, the power tags have been doubled from 256 to 512, and from 1024 to 2048 from the previous versions.
The ELC programmable logic controller is designed to suit control applications of 40 I/Os and less, although it can also be expanded up to 256 I/Os. That way, there is no need to change to a different controller as I/Os need to be expanded.
The Allen-Bradley PowerFlex 700L liquid-cooled drive delivers energy-efficient liquid cooling, allowing it to be installed in conditions where air-cooled drives can’t operate, such as dusty environments, or where increases in climate control costs would be excessive. Typical applications include HVAC and chillers, pumping applications and oil and gas industries.
The Wincomm IP65-rated stainless steel bezels provide protection for factory automation and control and HMI equipment from water, cleaning materials and grease typically found in the food and pharmaceutical production industries.
The Delta VFD-e series AC motor drives offer advanced motor control with the added advantage of an in-built PLC. The PLC provides up to 500 program steps and is programmed in standard ladder logic using free software, making simple automation projects easily achieved.
The RTA XMind-B6 stepper drive is powered by direct connection to 240, 220 or 110 VAC. When using a 240 VAC supply, this provides a 325 VDC motor supply rail which is suitable for high speed and acceleration.
Hirschmann Automation & Control has added three IP67 switches of the Octopus series to its range. These switches have 8 or 16 twisted-pair ports (100 BASE TX) or 14 twisted pair and two fibre-optic uplink ports (100 BASE FX).
