New PROFIsafe products this month include: a safe key system from Euchner, servo drives and controllers from KEB Automation, high performance safety controllers from Phoenix Contact, and updated absolute rotary encoders from TWK.
New IO-Link products this month include: interlocks from Euchner, radar level sensors from ifm, pressure switches from KROHNE, double-sheet sensors and I/O hubs from Pepperl+Fuchs, grippers form SCHUNK, and distance and fiber optic sensors from SICK.
New products this month include: MQTT capability for PROFIBUS I/Os from Softing; cylinder position sensors with IO-Link from Turck; electronic position indicators with IO-Link from SIKO; and IO-Link Wireless solutions from Balluff.
A new concept for zoned areas is proposed: Place small remote I/O valve terminals instead of building central or large decentralized solutions. Collect the intrinsically safe signals on-site and supply the pneumatic drives via short pneumatic lines. Communication takes place directly via PROFINET to the controller.
New products to announce this month include: Remote I/O with PROFINET for Zone 1 installations from R. STAHL; motor controller MPUs with PROFINET IRT and TSN from Renesas; compact motors from Moog Animatics with PROFINET; and INTRANAV has extended their offerings with chirp technology in the omlox community.
New IO-Link products to announce this month include: combined humidity and temperature sensors from Turck; pressure, level, and temperature sensors from Euroswitch; rotary encoders from POSITAL; thermal flowmeters from E+E Elektronik; and optoelectronic sensors from Balluff.
Lots of new products to announce this month from: Emerson, Softing, Deutschmann Automation, Advanced Energy Industries, Phoenix Contact, ifm electronic, Grid Connect, Real Time Automation, Pozyx, and NXP.
There are three new IO-Link products to announce this month: di-soric has released a new machine vision profile sensor with IO-Link; Hilscher has released its new netFIELD Device IO-Link Wireless Bridge; and Siogeen has released a generic platform-independent interface for IO-Link devices intended for software developers.
