Product News 49 with DIN-rail mounting support, as well as wall mountable orientations. This series provides wide operating temperature range models for either a STD: -10°C to 70°C or an EOT: -40°C to 75°C. These units also have high EFT, surge (2,000 VDC), and ESD (6,000VDC) protection to prevent against any unregulated voltage. Reveal chip antennas Antenova: A new antenna for the Narrow Band IoT (NB-IoT) standard ratified last summer has been introduced. The antenna is small, measuring just 20 x 11 x 1.6mm, and is built to a design which allows it to perform well within a device, while being easy to integrate onto a small PCB. This chip antenna is part of the company’s lamiiANT antenna family and is named Latona (part no. SR4C033). Narrow Band IoT is the latest mobile broadband standard. It uses the 3GPP licenced network spectrum which is secure and free from interference, and offers the combined advantages of low power, long range and the ability to penetrate walls and metal barriers. IoT device platform Maxim Integrated: Designing in cryptostrong authentication to protect Internet of Things (IoT) device hardware, and providing authenticity and integrity of small data transactions between the device and the cloud, is the goal of the MAXREFDES155# DeepCover embedded security reference design. As more devices are connected to the internet, security becomes a critical feature to authenticate networked equipment and sensors and ensure that sensor endpoints and controls are operated securely. Using elliptic curve digital signature algorithm (ECDSA) public-key cryptography, the MAXREFDES155# reference design makes it easy to develop devices that can authenticate and manage a sensing node with control and notification from a web server or network controller. Customers can quickly collect and display the authenticated sensor data, as well as monitor endpoints being updated via secure communications with the cloud. The reference design is targeting IoT devices being adopted in a wide range of industrial applications from factory automation to smart agriculture. Cryptography/microcontroller Microchip: The CEC1702 hardware cryptographyenabled 4.2017 industrial ethernet book microcontroller addresses the increasing need for security measures, such as secure boot, driven by the continual growth of Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The CEC1702 is a full-featured ARM Cortex- M4-based microcontroller with a complete hardware cryptography-enabled solution in a single package. This low-power but powerful, programmable 32-bit microcontroller offers easy-to-use encryption, authentication, private and public key capabilities and allows customer programming flexibility to minimise customer risk. The CEC1702 also provides significant performance improvements when compared to firmware-based solutions. The device’s hardware cryptographic cipher suite reduces compute time by orders of magnitude over software solutions by providing, for example, a 20-50x performance improvement for PKE acceleration as well as 100x improvement for encryption/ decryption. IndraControl XM12 Bosch Rexroth: The IndraControl XM12 control combines high functionality and communication diversity with high cost-effectiveness. As soon as many process signals were processed in an application, there is no alternative to real-time-capable controllers, even in lighter-duty applications with a more basic set of performance requirements. For these applications, Bosch Rexroth now offers a solution. The IndraControl XM12 provides flexible, easy-to-configure embedded control hardware that can be expanded with additional modules. Thanks to the use of open standards in programming and communication, IndraControl XM12 is a fit for automation projects. Communication and programming are based on open standards, which ensures easy integration into networked structures. Real-time communication with connected periphery results from the on-board Sercos master or alternatively EtherNet/IP or ProfiNet RT master. The new controller offers PLC automation with CODESYS V3, but also including the company’s Open Core Engineering software technology with the IndraControl XM12, building a bridge to the IT/IoT world. Users can program individual functions in high-level languages such as C/C++, Java and Lua and access the core functions of the controller in parallel and independently of the PLC. In addition, the gigabit Ethernet interface exchanges large data volumes with higherlevel systems at a high speed. The additional hardware components that would otherwise have been needed for this and the corresponding interfaces for machine control are a thing of the past. u-link Cloud based service Weidmuller: NEW u-link cloud-based service provides secure machine maintenance from anywhere in the world. The solution incorporates an intuitive web-based interface, (the u-link Portal) to allow for easy configuration for the customer’s specific application. The u-link cloud is used as a meeting point, securely connecting the user’s PC running the u-link VPN software with the u-link enabled security router. Once the security routers are added to the u-link Portal, users can access network devices, i.e. switches, PLCs and other Ethernet capable automation devices for troubleshooting, maintenance or PLC program changes. Up to 50 security routers can be added to the u-link Portal for free with the entry version. Customers already using Weidmuller security routers need only to install the latest version of firmware to add the u-link functionality. License upgrades are also available for 150, 300, 500, and unlimited number of security routers.
