Unmanaged Switches with New Capabilities
Automation engineers can create leaner, more efficient applications with the new FL SWITCH 1000 family. Phoenix Contact has added a new series of unmanaged switches with a compact form factor, gigabit speeds, automation protocol traffic prioritization, and flexible installation options. The FL SWITCH 1000 features automation protocol prioritization (APP), making it easy to prioritize the most important traffic. Mission-critical industrial communications such as PROFINET are sent through the network first.
New Fork Light Barriers with IO-Link
ipf electronic has completely revised its OG series of fork light barriers to include IO-Link communication, now integrated by default. Various settings can be made easily and conveniently via an IO-Link master. The housings of the fork light barriers are made of zinc die-cast or aluminum and are powder-coated. Adjustment of the response sensitivity with a potentiometer or the preselection of the output function (NO/NC) with a rotary switch remain unchanged.
New PROFINET Bulk Cable, Field Term Plugs, and Cable Assemblies
L-com has launched a new series of bulk cable, field term plugs, and cable assemblies designed to address PROFINET network applications. L-com’s line of PROFINET bulk cable is designed for industrial applications where rugged, shielded cables are required. The new shielded, field terminable, Category 5e-rated PROFINET plugs are specifically designed for larger gauge PROFINET cables and are available in straight or right-angle versions. L-com’s PROFINEWT cable assemblies are constructed using the aforementioned products, offering customers both solid and stranded conductor options.
New Radar Antenna for Level Measurement
Siemens presents the Sitrans LR250 PLA (polypropylene lens antenna) radar level measurement transmitter at a budget-conscious price point. The corrosion resistant polypropylene and FKM wetted materials are suited for use with a wide range of chemicals. The Sitrans LR250 is available with PROFIBUS PA communication to support the digitalization journey.
