This month: Eclipse high-performance transmitters; Perle industrial switches now support PROFINET; PROCENTEC presents Mercury for diagnostics; Siemens expands Simatic S7-1500 controllers; Turck simplifies communication with I/O modules, and much more.
How is PROFINET uniquely prepared to handle the most demanding motion control applications? Why is PROFINET also suitable for even simple motion control applications? Read this Tech Tip to find out!
There’s currently no shortage of new buzzwords in communications technology, which promise ultimate solutions for Industry 4.0 scenarios. One technology alone is insufficient for a sustainable, practical implementation...but do not worry! PI has a defined and consistent method to assess new technologies.
A leading oil product manufacturer chose IO-Link to improve oil tank visibility, viscosity monitoring, label detection, and much more. They were able to achieve solutions with in-depth diagnostics, remote web interfaces, and advanced device replacement thanks to IO-Link.
PROFINET has the best in class diagnostic mechanisms, being built on standard IEEE 802.3 Ethernet allowing the use of Information Technology (IT) protocols as part of its communication architecture. Become an expert in diagnostics, sign up for the upcoming webinar!
This NEW PI white paper explores different types and classes of PROFINET cables. It also gives an overview of specialty type cables and implementation considerations. Download the full white paper and learn more!
