New Products:

New multi-master IO, a weight processor with PROFIBUS, automation computer with PROFINET, a fail-safe high-end controller, cabling, and PROFIsafe modules are some of this issue’s new products. Click the headlines below for more details.

Ultra-compact Multiprotocol I/O Modules

Turck presents the first ultra-compact, digital block-I/O modules of the new TBEN-S (Small) series. The fully potted IP67 modules are only 32 mm slim and 144 mm short and allow the assembly directly on the machine.

Weight Processor with PROFIBUS DP Connectivity

Hardy Process Solutions has announced the release of a PROFIBUS‐DP communications option for its field‐proven HI 6500 series of weight processors. The Hi 6500 series has a big, bright multi‐channel display and delivers fast, high‐resolution weight readings.

Embedded Automation Computer with PROFINET

Advantech Industrial Automation Group releases the UNO-2362G Embedded Automation Computer with an AMD G-series dual core processor, daisy chain network capabilities, as well as the new iDoor technology. Modules for the iDoor system include PROFINET, among others.

Failsafe High-End Controller

The Siemens Industry Automation Division is expanding its new Simatic S7-1500 generation of controllers with the most powerful failsafe CPU so far – the Simatic S7-1518F. The new failsafe CPU is suitable for high-end standard and safety-related applications in machine and plant automation.

New 8-Channel Current or Voltage Input Modules

Acromag has expanded its BusWorks® XT Series of Ethernet I/O modules with XT1210 and XT1220 models that provide an 8-channel interface for analog voltage or current input signals for PROFINET, or peer-to-peer communication. Differential inputs have superior noise rejection for reliable measurements when radio frequency or electromagnetic interference is present.

Fast and Compact Controller in a Robust Housing

The new AXC 1050 controller from Phoenix Contact’s Axiocontrol range provides excellent performance and easy usage. It is particularly suited for installation in harsh industrial settings. A range of communication protocols are available, including PROFINET.

PROFINET Cabling Now AvailableQuabbin

The trusted Quabbin® and DataMax® branded cables offer a variety of PROFINET solutions. Whether your application requires Type A, B or C we have you covered. Our PROFINET cables also come standard with PLTC/ITC (Power Limited Tray Cable/Instrumentation Tray Cable) ratings.

PROFIsafe Integration with a Simple ModuleIXXAT_Safety

The IXXAT Safe T100 offers device manufacturers an easy way to control safe I/O signals using a safe field bus protocol. The module meets the SIL3 safety requirement level as defined by IEC 61508 and Performance Level PLe / Category 4 in IEC 13849-1.
