Cloud data control WAGO: Cloud Data Control manages and monitors all WAGO PFC Controllers, as well as their applications and data. A Web portal serves as a user interface for the cloud service hosted by Microsoft Azure. Customers have access to functions like project, controller and user management, controller status monitoring, alarm functions and email messaging through this gateway. A dashboard displays text, tables, diagrams, display elements and command buttons for seamless and intuitive operation. For customized solutions, the REST or OPC UA interface is used for example, in energy monitoring and predictive maintenance applications. WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM 750 and the 750 XTR both connect to the field level, and a PFC Controller sends data to Cloud Data Control. In just a few simple steps, both the PFC100 and PFC200 Controllers can be transformed into IoT devices by installing a firmware upgrade and programming an IEC application with the corresponding library. Communication between PFCs and Cloud Data Control is performed and encrypted via MQTT protocol. The user can easily run an upgrade in the Web browser using WAGO’s Web-Based Management (WBM) system. Industrial USB 3.0 Hubs B+B SmartWorx: Two new additions have been made to the industrial super speed USB 3.0 hub family with the BB-USH204 and BB-USH207, 4-port and 7-port industrial USB 3.0 hubs. The new USB 3.0 hubs offer a simple way to expand current USB capabilities by providing additional external USB 3.0 ports from a single USB 3.0 host connection — all with speeds up to 5 Gbps. The BB-USH204 and BB-USH207 rugged hubs provide reliability under almost any condition and can be securely mounted to most surfaces. Fully-compliant with the SuperSpeed USB 3.0 specification, these industrial USB hubs are also backward compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.x specifi cations for simultaneous support of older USB peripherals, even older systems without USB capabilities. Additional features include: USB 3.0 speeds up to 5 Gbps; 900 mA downstream power on each port; heavy-duty metal case with DIN and panel mount options; and 15 KV ESD protection. Multi-protocol I/O modules Belden: Upgraded LioN-Power Multi-protocol I/O Modules add fieldbus-independent automation capabilities to the next level with the addition of 16 universal digital input/output (16DIO) channels, paired with cross-protocol functionality spanning PROFINET, EtherNet/ IP and EtherCAT. Flex-Bit Technology also simplifi es connecting to legacy machines. Lumberg Automation’s IO-Link System has expanded with new LioN-Power IO-Link Hub offering 16 digital inputs. IO-Link devices, masters and hubs can be easily connected to efficiency process up to 132 I/O signals per system. With this solution, it makes fi nancial and economic sense to upgrade from passive to active systems, or for distributed environments to collect many digital signals. Integration and confi guration of IO-Link devices is also made easier using the TMG IO-Link Device Tool. Industry-specifi c Ethernet switches Mencom: IEC 61850-3 compliant industryspecific Ethernet switches operate in a wide temperature range from -40 to 85°C. They are also able to handle reliable, long distance transmissions through fi ber optics connectivity and guarantee QoS (Quality of Service) management and real-time packet switching for GOOSE (Generic-Object-Oriented- Substation- Event). The IEC 61850 for utility automation is the international standard to regulate a unified and standardized communication protocol for electrical substation and power grid automation. The new IEC 61850 standard focuses its domain knowledge on the electrical power grid system. It is an object-oriented protocol which utilizes a data modeling scheme that clearly describes each component (such as process objects, protection, and control functionality) of the grid or the substation as standard logical nodes. NIC card for TSN Relyum: The release of RELY-TSN-PCIe, a smart pluggable board that combines in a single device PCIe TSN Endpoint and TSN Bridge functionalities, provides three external fi ber or copper tri-speed Ethernet ports. Three basic traffic types can be defined: Scheduled traffic, Best-effort Traffic and Reserved Traffic. Scheduled Traffic type is appropriated for the hard real-time messages, and the Best-effort Traffi c is the general Ethernet traffi c that is not sensitive to any other Quality of Service metrics. The Reserved Traffi c type is for frames allocated in different time-slots but with a specifi ed bandwidth reservation for each priority type. RELY-TSN-PCIe offers the possibility to introduce TSN technology in the device where it is hosted enabling a seamless integration in a deterministic network. This key feature makes RELY-TSN-PCIe NIC a reliable and multipurpose networking device for critical environments. Industry-specifi c Ethernet switches HMS Industrial Networks: The company has announced support for the IoT protocols, OPC UA and MQTT, within the Anybus CompactCom range of embedded networking solutions. With OPC UA and MQTT in the portfolio, device and machine manufacturers who use CompactCom are offered a straightforward path to providing secure data to IIoT factories.
