Moxa PROFINET Ethernet Switch Line

Moxa launches its SDS-3008 smart switch, a new product line within its industrial Ethernet switch family. The smart switches offer an intuitive one-page dashboard, which allows users to activate pre-configured protocols (including PROFINET) in one click, simplifying HMI/SCADA integration. With the compact size and flexible mounting design, the smart switch allows the highest installation flexibility.

Siemens IO-Link RFID Readers

Siemens is extending its RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) system Simatic RF200 to include readers in compliance with IO-Link Standard V1.1. The read/write speed of the new devices is more than ten times higher than the existing series. The new readers come with a high degree of protection, compact design, and a rugged technical set-up, which makes them ideally suited for use in harsh industrial environments and for integration in applications with tight installation spaces.

They are suitable for the flexible construction of robust and failsafe networks in systems manufacturing, in the infrastructure and process industry, as well as in maritime applications. The switches have the necessary management functions for PROFINET applications.
