Turck: Ethernet Communication for Ex areas

Turck is opening the world of the process industry for digitalization and Industry 4.0 with the first Zone 2 Ethernet gateway for the excom I/O system. All process data can thus now for the first time reach IT systems for analysis and evaluation at sufficient speed via a parallel data channel – a fast and easy way of implementing condition monitoring and predictive maintenance.


Phoenix Contact: Non-contact Safety Switch

Due to their high level of protection against manipulation, electronic, non-contact coded switches are increasingly being used to monitor machine movable guards such as access doors and flaps. To support machine designers in implementing the specifications for interlocking devices, Phoenix Contact offers PSRswitch, a non-contact safety switch with a compact design.


Murrelektronik: MVK Fusion

MVK Fusion is a PROFINET/PROFIsafe module that unites three basic functions of installation technology:

  • Standard digital sensors and actuators
  • Safety digital sensors and actuators
  • IO-Link

MVK Fusion makes complex configurations easier because they can be done entirely by the engineering tool in the safety control system. Software developers and electrical engineers no longer need in-depth knowledge of other manufacturers’ tools and manuals.


EVT: Flexible Camera Concept for Line Scan, Matrix, and 3D Cameras

Innovative, individual, custom-made: the smart OEM platforms of the EVT hardware development have something for everyone. The flexible camera concept makes it possible to develop three different solutions out of one platform. Out of the CPU-Base-Board with FPGA and up to 1.6 GHz computing power, a line scan camera, a matrix camera, and a 3D sensor can be built. For that different, flexible exchangeable sensors such as by Sony are used.


ABB: PROFIsafe Safety Functions Module

To ensure a reliable safety solution for your machine building needs the PROFIsafe safety functions module (FSPS-21) helps connect the all-compatible machinery drive (ACS380), general-purpose drive (ACS580) or the industrial drive (ACS880) seamlessly to a safety PLC. The plug-in safety functions module employs built-in safety functions through PROFIsafe and controls the drive through PROFINET.
