To meet the requirements concerning industrial applications placed in explosive atmospheres, Pepperl+Fuchs, the German manufacturer of sensors and electronic components dedicated to industrial automation, has adopted the hardened Ethernet Switch developed by Amphenol, which complies with the ATEX Zone 2 regulations.
iX is a software-based HMI concept that fills the gap between proprietary HMI terminals and costly SCADA licence solutions. It consists of a development environment and a runtime environment and is available in several versions, including a complete Lauer HMI concept that can run on a panel PC or desktop PC platform as well as a runtime version for PCs from other suppliers. Thanks to support for the Microsoft .Net framework, iX enables a multitude of customer-specific adaptation options. With the ability to integrate externally available .Net controls (DLLs), there are practically no limits to your creative imagination in the generation of user-defined objects.
ELIO® is the easiest-to-use optical contact for harsh environments on the market. All the steps are simplified, from cabling through installation to maintenance operations: hermaphroditic contact, tool-less contact insertion and extraction from the connector, female insert optical surfaces always accessible for easy cleaning, sealing of the ELIO® contact on the optical cable without additional adapters and more... ELIO® is the only mass-producted optical contact proven in flight on board the Airbus A380.
Holding and moving heavy metal tubes is not an easy task for automation engineers. Holding and moving heavy metal tubes… in narrow rows of automated warehouses… at high speed… is even… worth! Tecnorulli decided to go wireless for such types of applications. The wireless option faced issues due to the environment itself (everything is made of metal in the warehouse) and more over, the moving parts, the carriages which are navigating through the aisles for depositing and/or taking material from the shelves and rows, are themselves made of metal. In short, the RF environment is some of the worth you can imagine for robust, safe, and reliable wireless applications. Nevertheless, Tecnorulli wanted to overcome the challenge and decided to go wireless , with one objective: improve quality and response time to better serve their customers. ProSoft Technology’s RadioLinx industrial radios were the key to resolving the communications difficulties Tecnorulli was facing in its automated warehouse.
primeflex stands for innovative technology oriented towards future applications at an exceptionally economic price. In contrast to other plug-in bellows couplings, it can be dismantled safely without putting the steel bellows at risk even after longer operating times.
When manufacturing and processing electronic components, electrostatic discharge (ESD = ElectroStatic Discharge) presents a serious hazard for the sensitive electronics. In addition, the increasing miniaturization of semiconductor components means even greater sensitivity to ESD.
