Panel Builder System Integrator

As microprocessor technology moves forward, it is a logical step to rationalise hardware and condense many traditional control components down into a single, compact unit. Other than saving space, the benefits of an integrated solution include reduction of overall power consumption and reduction of application development time, whilst also allowing customers to standardise to a single controller to fit most of their applications.

 

 

 

The new DPDM Multimount compact cylinder is Festo’s smallest, lightest and most economical choice yet in its class. It’s ideal for many applications compact cylinders perform, such as stopping or stabilizing small work pieces or work platforms in light manufacturing. It’s noticeably smaller than Festo’s widely used DMM compact cylinder and unique for the variety of ways it can be fastened in place directly. It can be mounted at the front or rear, vertically or horizontally, hence the “Multimount” in its name.

 

 

 

Quick-disconnect cables have a 3, 4 or 5-socket M8 female connector on one end and 3, 4 or 5 open leads on the other end to provide fast and easy connection between field devices and terminal connections. A "lock in place" nickel plated brass or zinc coupling nut resists high levels of shock and vibration.

 

 

 

POSITAL has expanded its portfolio of rotary encoders and inclinometers (tilt sensors) to include more devices with IP69K level environmental protection. These sensors, which are designed to stand up to repeated exposure to the hot, high-temperature water jets used in pressure washing systems, are now available with a wider range of mechanical options and communications interfaces.

 

 

 

Balluff’s newly expanded inductive portfolio delivers a wide range of intrinsically safe sensors for use in explosion protected areas. Each sensor is approved for all explosive zones and offers reliable detection and position measurement when hazardous materials, such as explosive gas, dust, or flammable liquids, are present.

 

 

 

DXC Technology, HARTING Systems and Murata will present an innovative, RFID-based concept at “EuroShop 2020”, the world's largest retail trade fair, held from 16-20 February 2020 in Düsseldorf. Developed by DXC, HARTING Systems and Murata, the RFID self-checkout counter enables a single scan of a complete shopping basket, providing a fast and seamless in-store shopping experience.

 

 

 

Higher amperage relay output modules and an 8-point input simulator module are now available from AutomationDirect for the CLICK® series stackable micro brick PLCs. The CLICK C0-04TRS-10 ($54.00) is a 4-point, 10A per point, isolated relay output module with four Form A (SPST) relays and 4 isolated commons. Operating voltage range is 6-24 VDC / 6-240 VAC.

 

 

 

Festo designed the new space-saving, flat, DLGF rodless linear drive as a very economical choice for applications where installation space is especially tight, like in electronics, small parts assembly, packaging and handling technology. Since those space considerations can also make a pneumatic drive harder to adjust or service, Festo also made its proprietary self-adjusting end-cushioning (PPS) standard with DLGF. Self-adjusting cushioning saves time and makes processes more reliable; the drive is always providing the correct cushioning.

 

 

 

The HARTING Technology Group has been a force for innovation, major standards and industrial milestones for 75 years. The 75th anniversary will be celebrated at numerous events this year. HANNOVER MESSE in April will be the high point of all of these celebrations.

 

 

 

 

The ultimate assessment platform to discover bottleneck issues within your engineering and manufacturing processes and see real-world solutions with time and costs savings instantly. Panel builders operate in an exceedingly tough competitive market, which means that reducing time spent on designs and excluding errors and reworks - in other words - keeping costs down - is of paramount importance. But, how can you meet this challenge?

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.

How Omron's Robotic Solutions Increased a Chocolate Company's Production By 40%

OmronAt BOLCi Bolu Chocolate, a Turkish manufacturer of elegant truffles and other delicacies, the opportunity arose for some improvements to its production system. With over 300 employees and a 20,000-square-meter factory, BOLCi has a product list of over 800 different items and produces and average of 200 tons of chocolate items each month.

BOLÇİ’s guarantee to its customers is that its chocolate is never sullied by human touch during production or packaging. In order to maintain this immaculate status and reach increasingly high production targets, the chocolate manufacturer turned to Omron and system integrator Innovas to devise an automated solution for its packaging line.
