Flowmeters with PROFINET
The newly developed Proline 100 flowmeters from Endress + Hauser work according to the Coriolis or electromagnetic measuring principle. The PROFINET interface enables a continuous connection from the controller to enter the meter and thus ensures rapid engineering and easy commissioning.
Bringing PROFIBUS and PROFINET to the Cloud
Hilscher has announced the netIOT family of embedded IoT connectivity products, cloud gateways and IoT integration tools to make the Industrial Internet accessible today. At launch, the solution family supports connection to existing PROFINET and PROFIBUS networks. The netIOT Edge-Gateways connect field data with IBM’s Bluemix platforms and applications supplied “as-a-service”.
Gateways Connect PROFIBUS / PROFINET to IT
The new Anybus .NET gateways from HMS enable real-time data from industrial machinery to be presented to .NET-based IT applications. This means that .NET programmers can get data directly from a PLC system on the other side of “the edge” to be used in applications for statistics, analysis, or maintenance. The first .NET gateways are available for PROFIBUS and PROFINET.
Compact Industrial Ethernet I/O Modules
Turck’s new compact Ethernet multiprotocol I/O modules make standard switching signals quickly and effectively bus-capable. The FEN20 devices with digital inputs and outputs are immediately ready for use in PROFINET systems. The FEN20 devices are available in two different designs. The smaller 4DIP-4DXP, fits in small control boxes. The larger 16DXP variant provides up to 16 I/O.
Data-Manager with PROFINET
The new Memograph M RSG45 from Endress + Hauser is a compact data management system for the detection of various signals (HART / analog / digital) from the field level, and for the safe storage and visualization of the data. The RSG45 supports PROFINET to further provide the instantaneous values directly into the Ethernet-based control levels.
Programmable SmartLights with IO-Link
At an automotive body-in-white plant operators were struggling to keep pace with the process. This was causing delays for just-in-time production at the plant. Balluff programmable SmartLights were then installed just above the operator stations. They are adaptable to any industrial network or fieldbus with IO-Link communication.
Faster Reaction through PROFIBUS Monitoring
Koole Terminals was able to drastically reduce the time needed to run their operations at the port in Rotterdam. Using Combricks from Procentec, allowed them to make their oil terminal more flexible than ever. PROFIBUS is the central nervous system of the tank-farm, and talks directly to the valves, flowmeters, and the control room (via Ethernet).
Two-Port Gateway Announced
ProSoft Technology has added a two-port EtherNet/IP-to-PROFINET gateway to its PLX30 gateway family. The new gateway features two Ethernet ports, allowing devices that speak two different protocols to reside on separate subnets. Keeping the protocols on two subnets also assists IT personnel by helping them more easily identify the devices in their operations.
PROFIBUS PA Interface at a Fingertip
Typically, implementing a PROFIBUS PA field device means developing custom hardware and device-specific software, requiring in-depth PROFIBUS knowledge. The PAeasy from Softing combines pre-engineered components suitable for implementing PROFIBUS PA transmitters with minimum engineering effort. The pre-defined transducer block implementation reduces development effort to pure configuration work.
