With the launch of the new Matrix™ 300N 2MP, Datalogic offers users a new solution for demanding reading applications in automotive, electronics, intralogistics and packaging lines. For guaranteeing fast and accurate reading of 1D- and 2D-Codes, including DPM codes, the new Matrix is equipped with a 2 Megapixel resolution sensor. Depending on the application, material surfaces differ and can vary from shiny metal to low contrast printing. To eliminate the flickering effect that could disturb operators, the reader has a continuous high-power mode (CHPM) light setting. Additional flexibility is granted by different communication options that include onboard PROFINET connectivity.
Endress+Hauser now offers PROFINET flowmeters with S2 Redundancy support. The feature was certified by an independent PI Test Lab for Proline Promass 300 and 500 as well as Proline Promag 300 and 500 instruments with integrated 2-port PROFINET switch and the new Firmware Version 01.01.00. S2 Redundancy enables the usage of the flowmeters in applications where two controllers (primary and backup) are needed, e.g. for large-scale applications with high requirements on availability and maximum uptime.
Siemens is launching two additional devices on the market: Simatic RF186CI and RF188CI. They include an integrated IO-Link Master. Access to configuration, commissioning and diagnostics tools is now also available via web-based management, in addition to TIA Portal. OPC UA is supported as an interface, as is the OPC UA Auto ID Companion Specification V1.0 data model. Overall integration and communication are performed via PROFINET and standard function blocks.
CENTUM VP is the core product in the OpreX™ Control and Safety System family of solutions. Yokogawa now offers a communications card for the PROFINET Industrial Ethernet standard. With this enhancement, the operation and monitoring of PROFINET devices, as well as devices that support PROFIBUS DP, can be integrated into CENTUM VP.
