Industry 47 and modules from the plant to the Festo Cloud via an OPC UA interface. That simplifies data analyses, predictive maintenance and condition monitoring. The CPX-E automation system allows users to connect their own machine control and drive systems with Festo motion control and remote I/O for integrated connectivity at all levels. This applies to all levels of automation, from mechanical to electrical, as well as intelligent connectivity, regardless of the standards used. Industrial connectivity HARTING: New products for advanced and high-performance connectivity include Han rectangular Connectors, PushPull circular Connectors and MICA edge computing solutions. New features include an overvoltage protection module for the Han-Modular series, rectangular current sensors. A new overvoltage protection module for the Han-Modular series brings surge protection into the connector, making integration easier since, as a rule, the module is already part of the basic configuration of the connectors used. The Han Configurator also now enables customers to quickly and easily find the optimum interface for their requirements. The Configurator includes a selection of the complete portfolio connectors and saves time and costs incurred in connection with interface design. IIoT gateway starter kit Moxa: A new IIoT Gateway Starter Kit includes built-in support for Amazon Web Services (AWS). This data-acquisition-ready kit provides a reliable, ready-to-use platform that simplifies development of IIoT solutions by providing all the essentials needed to get data from edge devices to cloud services, and with little to no programming required. This results in faster development, integration, and time to market. ThingsPro Gateway is a ready-to-run data acquisition software platform that simplifies the complex task of transferring edge data to the cloud. To simplify getting data, ThingsPro Gateway provides a Modbus framework to easily connect with Modbus RTU/TCP devices and SCADA systems. It also includes extensive network support for 4G connectivity, wireless failover, firewalls, and VPN to ensure that data can be securely retrieved from remote field sites. By integrating the AWS IoT Device SDK, ThingsPro Gateway lets users set up tags and devices on AWS IoT. Safety in the cloud Phoenix Contact: With the PROFICLOUD solution, companies receive important information on the optimization of sequences in production. The safety of machinery is and remains a critical subject for machine operators, plant engineers, and systems manufacturers. A common cause of failures is inadequate design. The ability to access safety system data via the IoT in real time and to convert this into information unlocks potential. With new cloud-based solutions, status information on standard- and safety functions are transmitted continuously via a PROFINET control solution to the PROFICLOUD. This information is then evaluated there and new opportunities are opened up for operators and designers to increase operational performance, for example, determining interdependencies between safety- and process parameters. IIoT gateway starter kit Red Lion Controls: Additions to the N-Tron series of industrial Ethernet switches include new Power over Ethernet (PoE) and non-PoE models designed for industrial applications requiring reliability, Gigabit performance, advanced management features and ease of use. Reliability maximizes network uptime, preventing lost production, or even worse, a safety risk. M12 cable connections ensure continuity in applications where motion or vibration exist, and the switches are ruggedized to operate in the harshest conditions. Red Lion’s new IP67 managed Gigabit Ethernet switches provide a rugged, dust proof and water-resistant enclosure with sixteen 10/100/1000Base-T(X) M12 X-coded ports to create a reliable and secure communication network for equipment in harsh environments. Two bypass relays enable data to continue to flow through the bypass relay ports, even in the event of a power outage. The new models offer secure M12 copper ports, plug and play operation, bypass relay port options, robust remote monitoring, N-Ring and N-Link ring technology and N-View device monitoring. Industrial Ethernet app development Renesas Electronics: The new RZ/N1 microprocessor (MPU) solution kit is designed to support various industrial network applications including programmable logic controllers (PLCs), intelligent network switches, gateways, operator terminals and remote I/O solutions. The kit is a complete application development package that includes the hardware and software required to enable faster prototyping of leading industrial Ethernet protocols such as EtherCAT, EtherNet/IP, ETHERNET Powerlink, PROFINET, Sercos, and CANopen, accelerating development and saving up to six months of industrial network protocol integration into customers’ applications. It includes a CPU development board based on the RZ/N1S MPU. In addition, a comprehensive software package is included with all the drivers and middleware, sample protocol stacks, U-Boot and Linux-based BSP, a unique inter-processor communication software, and even a userfriendly PinMuxing tool that can generate C-code header files that removes the complexity of pin configuration. The various software and sample code provides customers with a complete set of tools and frameworks to build their own application without any additional up-front costs or complexity.
