Packagers looking to trim costs and streamline operations can benefit from the efficiency, reliability and low cost operation of Meler’s new Micron+ adhesive systems. Industry 4.0 connectivity allows full integration with packaging machine HMIs and secure WiFi connection to smartphones or tablets. Multiple communication protocols including PROFIBUS and PROFINET are available to provide full compatibility with existing equipment and factory automation networks.
With the new PLCnext Control AXC F 3152 controller, Phoenix Contact now provides a high-performance Axioline controller based on the open PLCnext Technology ecosystem. The highly modular controller features three separate Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, of which two are also TSN-ready. With the separate interfaces for the PROFINET controller functions and PROFINET device functions, large PROFINET networks are particularly easy to segment.
Turck is now offering a compact starter kit for users wishing to discover the benefits of the IO-Link digital communication protocol. Besides Turck’s TBEN-S IO-Link master with four universal PNP channels, the set also includes one RGB indicator light and two sensors: the BI10U uprox inductive sensor as well as the RU40U ultrasonic sensor. The Simple IO-Link Device Integration (SIDI) software also enables devices to be integrated in PROFINET systems without the need for any additional software.
Turck is expanding its offering of the WLS27 Series Strip Light to include programmable models with RGBW LEDs for use in indication, illumination and inspection applications. Banner Engineering developed these new models with quality white light, sealed, chemical resistant housing, and a wide variety of colors and animation possibilities. The IO-Link models allow for dynamic control—reacting to inputs from other devices—and have additional modes beyond what is available with the discrete models.
