With the new PN/CAN gateway from Systeme Helmholz GmbH, the connection of CANopen devices to PROFINET is easy and straightforward. The range of products currently includes versions for the CANopen Master and Layer 2 protocols, and a product version with the CANopen Slave protocol is in the pipeline.
Axioline F is a modular I/O system for the control cabinet from Phoenix Contact. Open to all Ethernet-based communication protocols – like PROFINET – Axioline F offers maximum flexibility. With its 16 digital inputs and eight digital outputs, this module can be used particularly for monitoring and controlling self-contained system components, whereby more signals are received than are emitted.
The termination of PROFIBUS networks is now performed by the new active PSI-Terminator-PB-TBUS termination resistor from Phoenix Contact. This device relies on permanent termination to ensure interference-free communication, particularly in applications that involve alternating bus devices. The bus line can be connected either via a plug-in double spring terminal block or a D-SUB socket.
The latest version of the Pepperl+Fuchs Segment Checker now runs under Windows 10 and offers an interesting range of new functions and extensions. For example, the tool now supports the integration of the new PROFINET Gateway into a PROFIBUS PA environment. It also includes enhanced calculation models for FieldBarriers and handheld diagnostic tools.
