Banner Engineering adds PROFINET communication to its iVu Plus series of vision sensors. Adding the PROFINET industrial protocol to these Ethernet-enabled vision sensors provides simple and robust communication channels to control and monitor the sensors from any controller that supports PROFINET. iVu Plus TG models can be configured to operate using four different sensor types: Area, Blemish, Match, and Sort.
This conformity declaration certifies that all existing and new products for Ethernet applications from HARTING conform with the requirements for the use of PROFINET. The new products extend the PROFINET Portfolio to include the entire Ha-VIS preLink® cabling system, the har-speed M12 Press and Go connector as well as the new X-coded M12 plug.
With the compact IP67 module MVK Metal from Murrelektronik, safety inputs and outputs can be connected directly to a Siemens Sinumerik 849D SL PROFINET CNC providing that the “safety integrated” function is activated. There is no need for a passive wiring in the control cabinet anymore. Safety data from various safety components are sent directly to the controls by the protocol. Using PROFINET/PROFIsafe ensures that safety-related data is transferred reliably. With the MVK Metal-Safety, high safety standards (SIL3 and PLe) can be fulfilled even without a safe control (F-PLC).
The Phoenix Contact PROFIBUS DP/PA coupler/link transparently converts PROFIBUS DP to PROFIBUS PA, while providing detailed network diagnostics. It includes a communication interface module, PROFIBUS DP repeater module, and a PROFIBUS PA scope module that can help you easily determine physical layer problems in your network.
