Product News 49 (Layer 3) capabilities for demand industrial environments. The 4000 Series switches are built to withstand extreme environments while adhering to overall IT network design, compliance, and performance requirements. They deliver highly secure access and industryleading convergence using Cisco Resilient Ethernet Protocol (REP), and support industrial protocols. The IE4000 series can be easily managed by using the Cisco Industrial Network Director, a network management system built for industrial applications. sWave.NET wireless network Steute: The latest version of its sWave.NET wireless network enables several hundred wireless switching devices to be connected to a network via access points. The access points transmit wireless signals to the customer IT infrastructure for further processing. The function of the network uses a mobile E-Kanban rack or FIFO shelf as a typical application for wireless networks. Whenever a container is removed from a rack, an electromechanical wireless switch or non-contact wireless sensor transmits a signal to the next available access point. The access point then passes it on to the materials management software or to production planning and control. Secured connected systems Microchip: The ATECC608A CryptoAuthentication device, is a secure element that allows developers to add hardware-based security to their designs, and a Security Design Partner Programme for connecting developers with third-party partners that can enhance and expedite secure designs. The combination of hardware security solutions and an unprecedented level of partnership helps to protect against security threats ranging from remote cyber-attacks to the creation of counterfeit products. These threats are widespread 2.2018 industrial ethernet book and affect all industries and can translate into substantial losses in recovery costs, service revenue and perhaps, most significantly, in brand equity. Implementing robust security into new and existing designs to protect Intellectual Property (IP) and enable trusted authentication of connected devices is critical. The foundation of secured communication is the ability to create, protect and authenticate a device’s unique and trusted identity. By keeping a device’s private keys isolated from the system in a secured area, coupled with its industryleading cryptography practices, the ATECC608A provides a high level of security that can be used in nearly any type of design. Combo Ethernet switch Planet: A new switch provides a full PoE+ power and Gigabit extension solution for hardened environments. Designed to be plug-and-play in heavy industrial applications, the IFGS-1022HPT is a new member of PLANET Industrial-grade, DIN-rail type Unmanaged Fast Ethernet PoE+ Switch family with 8 10/100/BASE-TX ports featuring 30-watt 802.3at PoE+, and 2 additional Gigabit copper/SFP combo interfaces for Gigabit Ethernet extension and video uplink. The IFGS-1022HPT is designed with redundant power system and is able to operate reliably, stably and quietly in any hardened environment without affecting its performance. It comes with a total power budget of up to 240 watts for different kinds of PoE applications and operating temperature ranging from -40 to 75 degrees C in a rugged IP30 metal housing. Ovation OCC100 controller Emerson: The new Ovation OCC100 controller extends technology by managing the flow of energy from various sources to ensure continuous, reliable power generation for smallscale and remote applications. With renewable electricity capacity expected to expand by over 920 gigawatts, an increase of 43 percent through 2022 according to a 2017 International Energy Agency report, the OCC100 controller is particularly attractive to power generators with growing and diverse renewable generation portfolios (including hydro, solar and wind) and microgrids that rely on a variety of distributed energy resources. The OCC100 offers remote monitoring and control capabilities for wind farms spread out over a wide geographic area and the ability to operate in the higher ambient temperatures associated with solar facilities. For microgrids, it provides a single point of control for performance optimization. Similarly, the new controller efficiently monitors and controls remote pump stations critical to collecting, treating, storing and distributing water to homes and businesses. Today, power generation, water and wastewater facilities often rely on non-integrated programmable logic controllers (PLCs) with limited functionality to automate smaller, stand-alone equipment or processes. These islands of automation limit broad information-sharing necessary for optimal operational efficiency. PLS62-W wireless module Gemalto: The PLS62-W wireless module delivers seamless global connectivity providing highly efficient, Multi-band LTE Cat 1 communications plus fallback to 2G and 3G when needed. The leading edge solution enables M2M optimized speeds of 10Mbit/s down-load and 5Mbit/s uplink for industrial IoT applications that require the longevity of LTE networks along with reliability in regions where 4G is still emerging. The PLS62-W module is designed for applications such as global track and trace, smart metering, and fleet management solutions. It provides worldwide coverage and reliability through roaming over various global wireless networks.
