Sunlight readable displays for explosion-protected HMI systems

The PC-based, explosion-protected operating systems from the Open HMI series can now, on request, be fitted with innovative 15" displays that reduce glare and reflections to a minimum. The displays of these models can be read easily even in bright sunlight, since a filter pack effectively diverts even strong incoming ambient light. The new solution is based on a very effective combination of polarisation filters placed on top of and behind one another in front of the display.

The Ludwigsburg-based automation specialist Jetter AG has launched its new JVM-407 graphics-capable HMI, designed especially for use in harsh environments.

SOURIAU – SUNBANK Connection Technologies

SOURIAU’s 851 range (Mil DTL 26482 series I), now available in an RoHS version with QPL accreditation

SOURIAU’s black Zinc Nickel version enables users of industrial and aeronautical equipment to comply with the latest RoHS directives. It can guarantee the same electrical and physical characteristics as the cadmium solution, particularly in terms of salt spray resistance (500 hours). In addition, an RoHS Zinc Nickel 851 connector can be mated with a cadmium connector without generating a galvanic couple; the same is true of accessories such as adaptors.

SOURIAU – SUNBANK Connection Technologies


To meet the growing demand for small waterproof connectors for on-board railway equipment, SOURIAU has developed a special connector: the SMS IP. Designed to meet railway standards, the SMS IP combines compactness and safety: IP 67 sealing, operating voltage up to 500 V and compliance with the most demanding fire and smoke standards. SMS IP is intended for on-board applications such as lighting, door controls, detectors, air conditioning programmes, the SMS cabs etc..


Safety Rotary Encoder RVK58S : SIL3/PLe compliant drive solutions, including rotor position detection

Machine and plant engineering companies are increasingly relying on failsafe components to fulfil the safety requirements specified in the current version of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. The safety sine/cosine rotary encoder RVK58S is an ideal choice as it also allows the position of the motor rotor to be detected with the highest accuracy levels.
