Are you getting intelligence back from your control system?
Energy companies monitor the voltage and current supplied into every neighborhood. Wouldn’t you want to be able to monitor and be notified that a branch in your machines critical supply has suddenly changed?
Most systems are heavily dependent on a smooth stable power supply. Yet the installed device is the cheapest dirtiest and least featured device available.
Check out the NEW Siemens SITOP PSU8600!
This is the first power supply system that is completely embedded in Totally Integrated Automation (TIA). Not only does this facilitate especially user-friendly engineering in the TIA Portal, but also extensive evaluation of operating and diagnostics data as well as energy management functions.
Siemens has launched FS AA and FS AB frame size SINAMICS V20 converters for single-phase 230 V mains operation, the company's smallest SINAMICS so far on the market. The converters are optionally available with an integrated C1 EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) filter, which allows them to be used in residential and commercial environments in compliance with DIN EN 61800-3.
The Thomson 400 Series is a cost-effective, transport-grade profile rail solution designed as a drop-in replacement with industry-standard envelope and hole patterns.
400 Series Features & Benefits
• 4 m lengths allow for extended, joint-free transfer required in some design functions
• Available ball cage design promotes less drag, retains lubricants and has low noise at high speeds
• Optimized ball guide and retainer design provides smooth ball transitions in the pickup, turn and unloaded returns
• Integral side and end seals are standard
• Double-face design is more compliant to any misalignment in the system
Thomson 400 Series profile rails are ideal for transport-grade applications such as packaging and food & beverage!
The new SIMOTICS crane motors now have an even higher efficiency and are more compact than before. They have been specifically developed to address the harsh atmospheres encountered in container seaports around the world. It goes without saying that these motors safely and reliably operate with SINAMICS converters.
HUMAN-ROBOT COLLABORATION EASY TO INTEGRATE – EASY TO HANDLE
As a pioneer and one of the world’s leading manufacturers of HRC components, the Zimmer Group is making exceptional developments for today’s work environment to reduce the physical load on workers and monotonous work steps to prevent accidents as well as to increase the efficiency of work steps. This is done through the collaboration of the best from both worlds: man and machine.
Easy to integrate:
Not only one of the world’s best HRC grippers is available for your Universal Robots, but also a modular construction system specially matched to your model. This provides a broad selection of grippers and handling components with corresponding accessories, so that you don’t have to worry about compatibility and integration. In this robot tool building kit, the HRC and Industrie 4.0 components are included. This will open up numerous advantages: Easy to install, easy to configure, easy to operate,...
Due to the increasing integration of advanced electronics, today’s linear actuators have become safer, smarter and easier to network with agricultural, construction and mobile off-highway equipment.
Modern linear actuators like the Thomson Electrak HD offer analog and digital feedback. The Electrak Modular Control System also monitors critical parameters and can react to them automatically. They deliver inexpensive, real-time operating status and network flexibility with other systems.
All of this is the result of incorporating a programmable microprocessor to meet market demand for greater safety, functionality and modularity.
If you are looking to facilitate the seamless integration of safety technology in factory automation, then don't miss this online presentation. A Comprehensive overview of how easy it is to implement safety functions in one controller through one programming package over one communication connection for standard and fail-safe automation.
This Media System shows how to realize the required safety functions for a sample cutting machine based on a SIMATIC S7-1200.
We assume a risk analysis was performed for the sample cutting machine and the conclusion is that the monitoring of the E-STOP and the Safety door need to fulfill PL e (according to ISO 13849) respectively SIL 3 (according to IEC 62061)
The Media System explains this solution in several modules:
Module 1: Introduction
Module 2: Setting up/wiring of the SIMATIC S7-1200
Module 3: Engineering with Step 7 in TIA-Portal
Module 4: Testing
“Increasing Productivity through Advancements in Automation Technology

Congested motorways, many intersections with traffic lights and the ever-present heavy-goods vehicles slowing you down – traffic obstructions such as these are a nuisance to car drivers. In automated networks such as PROFINET, the “data highway” of the industry, so to speak, similar obstacles play a decisive role in the quality of the communication and thus also affect the production results. Users who are aware of the significance of this correlation and who set up their networks accordingly are awarded with long-term stable data communication.
Check out PROFINET – The Movie: Technology Made Easy by Indu-Sol which uses the traffic on our streets as an analogy to explain the basic relationships relevant to the technology and provides tips for an optimal network structure and communication diagnostics. The movie also takes a look at the quality parameters of the PROFINET Design and Commissioning Guidelines of PI (PROFIBUS & PROFINET International), explains their...
