Panel Builder System Integrator

Roland Bent

Panel Builder & Systems Integrator recently had the opportunity to attend Hannover Messe 2018 to see first hand the future products and solutions being offered within the industry and to learn about the advancements and technology direction of Phoenix Contact. Phoenix Contact is an innovative driver of new technology and solutions that were displayed across an impressive booth that showcased not only new products, but perhaps most interestingly the development of complete control solutions that are revolutionizing the industry.

 

 

 

Rockwell Automation

 

To keep pace in the machine design industry, companies require a delicate balance of innovation and an ability to get their products to market on time and on budget. Typically, issues with new designs will become apparent during commissioning, once physical prototypes shed light on oversights and errors.

 

Rittal

 

Today, organizations, especially the midsize ones, often find themselves in a quandary. They need to continually increase IT capacity to support new technologies like cloud, analytics, mobility, and social while improving availability, supporting application growth and meeting new customer and business demands at the same time, they must contain operating and capital costs. Something’s got to give. For many organizations, data centers are the engines that drive the growth of the enterprise.

 

Phoenix Contact

Rivierenland, the Dutch water authority, has replaced outdated technology with innovative automation components provided by Phoenix Contact as part of modernization measures. Johan van IJmeren, Senior Project Manager at Waterschap Rivierenland, was involved in the practical implementation. The new devices contribute to cross-border flood protection and also significantly reduce the engineering costs while increasing plant availability.

 

 

 

EMC

 

The whitepaper, by global EMC specialist Keith Armstrong, offers guidance on choosing the correct specifications and style of a filter. Armstrong states that the guidance is akin to taking “anti-Murphy” precautions — referring to the adage that "anything that can go wrong will go wrong". The advice aims to pre-empt Murphy’s Law from affecting filters, through better specification in the design process.

 

 

 

Panduit

Working within the manufacturing, education, healthcare, transportation, and energy sectors, to name but a few, Panduit is working to ensure each of the sectors has comprehensive, stable infrastructure solutions. The solutions offered by Panduit provide physical, electrical and network infrastructure that are leading their clients into the future.

 

 

Kymera Systems

 

The world today is in what can be best described as the Fourth Industrial Revolution, or more commonly known as Industry 4.0. Also going by the name of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), the industrial world has already seen the implementation of various Cloud technologies and an increased rate in automation, the likes of which were not in past years.

 

 

Choosing the right filter for an application is considered by many design and electrical engineers to be something of a dark art. Fortunately, help is at hand – a new whitepaper from electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) specialist EMC Standards. The whitepaper provides design engineers with a guide to designing the right filters for their products, and is available for download in the member’s area of the EMC Standards website.

 

 

Hannover Messe 2018

 

"Technology is not about competing with us humans; it's about assisting us. That is the core message conveyed by this trade fair, which has again underscored Hannover's reputation as a global hotspot for the digital transformation of industry," said Dr. Jochen Köckler, Chairman of the Managing Board at Deutsche Messe, at the close of HANNOVER MESSE and CeMAT.

 

 

CSA

 

As the industrial and manufacturing sectors continue the shift from centralized to decentralized operations, the world of production as we know it will change completely. This new era, commonly referred to as the fourth industrial revolution or Industry 4.0, is characterized by—smart manufacturing processes where a plethora of intelligent machines, systems, and networks independently exchange and respond to information to manage production.
