Panel Builder System Integrator

Inductive sensors are still the first choice for detecting metallic objects. However, conventional inductive proximity sensors have one thing in common: if the distance to the damping element increases, the sensor becomes more sensitive to the detection object, and the metal surrounding the installation affects the switching distance.

 

 

 

Emerson recently introduced the Rosemount Thermowell Design Accelerator, a free online thermowell design tool that eliminates manual thermowell iterations facing process design engineers when sizing thermowells. It is easy to use and intuitively guides users through complex projects, saving hours of wasted labor and resources. Users will be able to automatically iterate up to 1,000 thermowell tags with a single click – all optimized for their process conditions.

 

 

 

Made exclusively for AutomationDirect by Yokogawa, the ProSense PPC5 series of Advanced Process Controllers has the features, functionality, and performance to handle temperature, pressure, level, flow, and other process variable control applications. These controllers accept inputs directly from thermocouples or RTDs and analog signals from most any type of process variable sensor/transmitter.

 

 

 

AutomationDirect StrideLinx VPN routers provide an outgoing, secure connection from remote machines or systems to the StrideLinx platform. Routers are easily configured and have a built-in firewall to isolate company and control networks. These easy-to-use, IT-friendly industrial VPN routers minimize costly field support by providing remote programming, monitoring, and troubleshooting.

 

 

 

Ethernet-based data networks have become indispensable in the industrial arena. Ethernet networks are connecting sensors, machinery, control systems, computers and data centres. HARTING is now also offering expedient interfaces in the form of its Han 1A series of miniaturised industrial connectors.

 

 

 

HARTING is now presenting the Han S, the first ever large-scale special connector for battery storage modules. The new series meets the technical requirements set down in the latest standards for stationary energy storage systems (incl. UL 4128) and offers users optimal reliability for connected units. The series features housings with space for a heavy-current contact up to 200 A.

 

 

 

HARTING has developed a new Han Shielded power module that allows users to insert shielded power lines into modular connectors for the first time. A shielded signal module for easy EMC-protected data transmission will also be added to this product shortly. Customer benefits: Easy to use and shorter installation times.

 

 

 

The HARTING Technology Group has developed a new range of Ethernet switches that facilitates the use of high-performance plug & play gigabit network solutions in the smallest space for data-intensive applications.

 

 

 

The HARTING Technology is driving its activities in the area of digitalization forward. The aim is to accompany and support customers comprehensively in their digitisation and automation processes. Consequently, HARTING IT Software Development has repositioned itself with a long-term view and is now trading under the peraMIC name.

 

 

 

B&R now offers a wider 180° curved segment for its intelligent SuperTrak track system. The new curve enables greater holding and propulsion forces. The shuttles can travel at higher speeds and accelerate faster. This boosts the productivity of the system.

One of Canada’s largest wastewater treatment plants at Annacis Island provides secondary treatment to approximately 175 billion litres of wastewater every year for over 1 million residents in 14 municipalities. After almost 20 years in operation, the variable frequency drives supporting the critical pumping systems for the primary treatment and secondary treatment facilities had to be replaced to ensure that the plant’s high operational availability and reliability will not be compromised in serving the plant, the surrounding municipalities and the environment. Metro Vancouver Regional District chose to deploy Rittal’s enclosure and power distribution solutions with E-plan software to efficiently support vital infrastructure improvements by reducing equipment replacement times and thereby minimizing risk to plant operations.
