Phoenix Contact: Modular Proxy for Direct Connection to PROFINET
The Axioline P proxy from Phoenix Contact connects Profibus PA segments directly to a Profinet network. The modular station communicates with a Profinet controller, e.g., a distributed control system (DCS), via a bus coupler. As an option, up to eight Profibus PA segments can be connected to the individual proxy outlets in a compact way. To ensure the individual segments are immune to interference, appropriate shield connection technology is available. FDT/DTM technology simplifies the startup and device management of both the proxy station, which is fully integrated into higher-level control systems and the connected Profibus PA devices.
Turck: Interface Device Family Expanded for Non-Intrinsically Safe Signals
The IM12 interface devices now allow for the first time the benefits of Turck’s IMX12 series to also be available for non-intrinsically safe signals. The IM12 devices are some of the slimmest on the market and with a width of only 6 mm per channel save space in the control cabinet. Their modern electronic design provides a high degree of investment security. The entire device series is certified for use in functional safety circuits up to SIL2. The IM12 devices process digital and analog signals from field devices, such as in the pharmaceutical industry or chemical industry. However, the IM12 devices also find suitable uses in factory automation, such as for temperature and speed measuring.
