With the POSIDYN® SDS 5000 servo inverter, STÖBER provides remote maintenance in a technically and legally secure form. Here all data and processes can be accessed as if an on-site service. With this cost-effective system, personal and system safety have a high significance. Optional fieldbus interfaces, e.g. PROFIBUS, are available for communication with a higher-level controller.
TURCK updated and upgraded its PROFIBUS PA cables, designing in ruggedness for use in extreme environments. UL listings include Exposed Run (ER) and Direct Burial (DB), providing excellent crush and impact resistance. In addition, the cables are UV resistant, oil resistant to UL Oil Res 1, and FT4 flame retardant. Added Marine Shipboard listings and certifications streamline inventory for OEMS who build for both onshore and offshore applications
Visualize and troubleshoot any PROFINET network with the powerful Netilities diagnostic and engineering tool from PROCENTEC. Netilities is the most compact and efficient graphical software tool useful for engineering, monitoring, and troubleshooting PROFINET installations. Thanks to unique features such as a live list, statistics, and PROFINET alarm messages, engineers can be informed directly about the reliability of the PROFINET network.
At the embedded world trade show 2015 in Nuremberg, Softing presents the latest version of FFeasy and PAeasy – the proven combined hardware and software solutions for the direct and rapid implementation of FOUNDATION Fieldbus H1 and PROFIBUS PA field devices. Users benefit from a smooth certification process for their field devices and a short time-to-market.
The new push-pull Advance data connectors from Phoenix Contact bring future-proof high-speed cabling directly to the field. Designed for data rates of up to ten Gbps, the connectors are protected against dirt, dust, or humidity by means of IP65/IP67 protection. Due to their 360° shielding, they are also immune to electromagnetic interference. The push-pull technology means that users can insert and remove the connectors easily.
